Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 13:9

_ _ it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, etc. — There is no reason to believe that the Oriental tattooing — the custom of staining the hands with the powder of Hennah, as Eastern females now do — is here referred to. Nor is it probable that either this practice or the phylacteries of the Pharisees — parchment scrolls, which were worn on their wrists and foreheads — had so early an existence. The words are to be considered only as a figurative mode of expression.

_ _ that the Lord’s law may be in thy mouth, etc. — that is, that it may be the subject of frequent conversation and familiar knowledge among the people.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Exodus 13:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 13:9

Upon thy hand, between thine eyes — Proverbial expressions; denoting things which are never out of our thoughts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Exodus 13:9

And it shall be for a sign unto thee (f) upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.

(f) You will constantly remember it, as you would of a thing that is in your hand, or before your eyes.
