Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 2:13-14

_ _ two men of the Hebrews strove together — His benevolent mediation in this strife, though made in the kindest and mildest manner, was resented, and the taunt of the aggressor showing that Moses’ conduct on the preceding day had become generally known, he determined to consult his safety by immediate flight (Hebrews 11:27). These two incidents prove that neither were the Israelites yet ready to go out of Egypt, nor Moses prepared to be their leader (James 1:20). It was by the staff and not the sword — by the meekness, and not the wrath of Moses that God was to accomplish that great work of deliverance. Both he and the people of Israel were for forty years more to be cast into the furnace of affliction, yet it was therein that He had chosen them (Isaiah 48:10).
