Is there any book written by any man about wisdom and about doing right which comes to mind which is known and revered by even one-hundredth of those who know and revere this book of Exodus?


Updated July 16, 2017


exodusbook.jpg

Like the book of Genesis, there will be 3 approaches to the book of Exodus. First, two decades ago, I did a verse-by-verse examination of the entire book of Exodus all chapters; a brief exegesis of the entire book only (451 pages). The Book of the Exodus (HTML) (PDF) (WPD).


I have begun 2 new studies of the book of Exodus, chapter by chapter, one where the book is exegeted verse-by-verse; and the other a study emailed out which does not delve deeply into the Hebrew or the sentence structure; nor are other commentators extensively brought into the mix.


I have just begin to work through this book verse by verse, exegeting each verse and every word. At some point, I will merge these 3 projects into one (as I am doing in Genesis). My intention is to complete the most thorough examination of the book of Exodus ever done.


The exegesis of these books will not put before you a bunch of brand new doctrines which are different from those already delivered by orthodox Christianity; that is, a study of this book is not going to upend your doctrinal foundation, or get you interested in joining some cult of some sort; these questions have doctrinal answers and fit in very well with the essential doctrines that we have learned and have believed in (see the Doctrinal Statement).


As an aside, even though I have attended Berachah Church for over 30 years, these are not my notes re-worked from R. B. Thieme, Jr.’s excellent notes. On most chapters, I refer back to my old notes from that class to make certain that I did not leave anything out; but R. B. Thieme, Jr. did not cover most of the material included here (at least, not during the time that his lessons were recorded and distributed). And, as always, the bulk of this study is original, with view toward application to contemporary events. There are a great many things in these chapters that Bob did not cover. However, the theology is essentially the same.

So far, I have only begun a word-by-word examination of each chapter. This will not be the finished product.

A possible problem with the previous pdf files is, they are quite large and they may not display on computers with limited memory (a typical chapter will be 200–400 pages long). If that is the case, then you should be able to right-click the link, choose save as, and put the file on your hard drive and open it there using Adobe Acrobat Reader. That will give you a complete view of the graphics and the Hebrew characters.


For those who read Hebrew, the following is important. If you don’t, then no need to read this paragraph. Since WordPerfect now properly prints out Hebrew words (reading from right to left), HTML files also properly display the Hebrew characters, but the PDF files read left to right (which is backward in the Hebrew). In older documents, I placed each letter where it belonged by typesetting, and WP and PDF would display properly (but HTML would not). For most people, this does not mean anything, but I did have one person who noticed the problem in the PDF documents.


The following documents will open up on your computer, either into WordPerfect or into Word (although the formatting might be a little funky in Word).

Now and again, I have seen that I have made some mistakes in spelling as well as in the morphology (I took the information from John Owens, but changed it whenever there was a mistake in his work). If you discover mistakes, then I would want to know what they are so that I could change them and update the documents. I enjoy studying the Word of God, but I so hate to proofread.


The original wpd format (WordPerfect document) is also available online. Just go to http://kukis.org/Exodus/, right click, and choose save as. These documents will open in WordPerfect and sometimes in Word (although that is a dicey proposition). Each document (chapter) is typically complete at around 100–400 pages each.


At this point, without the additional translations and commentary, these chapters are generally between 70 and 150 pages each.

Brief Chapter Synopses


A complete chapter-by-chapter study of Exodus has not yet been started. The basic word-by-word exegesis of the Hebrew has been started. It may be a few years before I get this far.


Exodus Intro-duction

God, Through Moses, Takes the Hebrew People out of Egypt

Primarily the works of 12 commentators; combined with some personal commentary

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

113 pages






Exodus 1

The Egyptian Oppression of the Hebrews

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; Exodus notes

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

137 pages


Exodus 1 serves as a connection between the books of Genesis and Exodus, as approximately 400 years has passed between the events recorded at the end of Genesis and the beginning of Exodus.


A pharaoh arises who does not know Joseph, and the Egyptians, worried about the large Hebrew population, make the Hebrews their slaves. However, the Hebrew population still grows, even to the point where the Pharaoh calls for the midwives to kill the male infants born to Hebrew couples. When they refuse to cooperate, Pharaoh calls for all sons of the Hebrews to be thrown into the Nile and drown.



Exodus 2

The First 40 Years of the Life of Moses

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; Exodus notes

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

184 pages


A husband and wife from the tribe of Levi have a son, and, when she can no longer conceal him, he is placed into a small container in the Nile River so that he floats to an area frequented by Pharaoh’s daughter. She sees the infant and is moved and he is taken out of the water, and she cares for him, naming him Moses.


Moses grows up in the palace of the Pharaoh. At some point, he learns that he is originally a Hebrew, so he goes out among the Hebrew slaves, out of curiosity. When he sees a taskmaster beating a Hebrew slave, he kills the taskmaster. When this becomes known, Moses flees Egypt.


Moses ends up in Midian, where he meets 7 young women giving water to their flock at a well. He stands up for them against some shepherds who drive them away. The father of the young women asks for Moses to be brought to his home to feed him. Moses marries one of his daughters and they have a son.



Exodus 3

Moses and the Burning Bush

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; Exodus notes

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

200 pages


When walking his flock along the edge of the desert-wilderness, Moses comes upon a burning bush, and when he approaches it to get a better look, he finds that it is a manifestation of God.


God tells Moses that He is aware of the sufferings of the sons of Israel and that He will bring them to the land of the Canaanites and Hittites, a land flowing with milk and honey.


Then God tells Moses that he will be God’s point man.



Exodus 4

God Sends Moses and Aaron to Egypt

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; Exodus notes

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

220 pages


Exodus 4 is simply a continuation of Ex. 3. Moses is still out in the desert speaking to God. When God tells Moses what He wants him to do, Moses objects, eloquently arguing that he is too inarticulate to speak before Pharaoh and bring him God’s message. God tells Moses that his brother is able to talk, so he will be the spokesman for Moses, who is the spokesman for God; and, oh by the way, Aaron is on his way right now to meet Moses.


Moses and Aaron meet, then go to the elders of the sons of Israel and convince them that God knows of their difficulties and that He has visited the sons of Israel.



Exodus 5

Moses Confronts Pharaoh/Work Requirements Increased

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; notes.

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

166


Moses and Aaron go before Pharaoh and call for a time of worship for the sons of Israel. Pharaoh refuses and increases the work requirements of the Hebrew slaves. The Hebrew foremen complain to Moses and Aaron and Moses takes their complaint to God.



Exodus 6

God Speaks to Moses/A Limited Genealogy

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; notes.

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

207


About half of Exodus 6 is a conversation between God and Moses, where God tells Moses that He will fulfill the covenants which He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In the middle of this chapter, there is a genealogy (mostly, it is Levi’s line, which leads to Moses and Aaron). Then we pick up at the end of the chapter where Moses voices the concern that, Pharaoh will not listen to him because he is not a good public speaker.


Exodus 6 is, unfortunately, a chopped up chapter which begins and ends incorrectly. God and Moses are speaking, and this begins in Ex. 5:22 and continues to 6:12, until a genealogy is inserted (a genealogy which primarily focuses on the line of Levi, which leads to Moses and Aaron). This conversation between God and Moses is picked up at the end of Ex. 6, where Moses asks, “How will Pharaoh listen to me if I am a poor communicator?” God then answers Moses question in Ex. 7:1–5. Properly, Exodus 6 should have begun in Ex. 5:22 and ended with Ex. 7:7.



Exodus 7

The Waters in Egypt Are Turned into Blood

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; notes.

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

179


God agrees that Aaron will act as Moses’s mouthpiece and He tells them what to expect when interacting with Pharaoh. They will be sent twice before Pharaoh: (1) to show the power of Moses’ staff (now carried by Aaron); and then (2) to curse the land of Egypt (using the staff) by turning all of their standing water into blood (or something which appears to be blood).



Exodus 8

The Plagues of Frogs, Gnats and Swarming Insects

Word-by-word Hebrew exegesis; 3 original translations; 90+ translations; notes.

(HTML) (PDF) (WPD)

229


Exodus 8 is the narrative of 3 plagues (plagues 2–4): (1) the plague of the frogs; (2) the plague of the gnats; and (3) the plague of the warming insects (often called, the plague of the flies).
