NET © Notes

tn Grk “his brothers.”

tn Grk “was granting them deliverance.” The narrator explains that this act pictured what Moses could do for his people.

tn Grk “by his hand,” where the hand is a metaphor for the entire person.

sn They did not understand. Here is the theme of the speech. The people did not understand what God was doing through those he chose. They made the same mistake with Joseph at first. See Acts 3:17; 13:27. There is good precedent for this kind of challenging review of history in the ancient scriptures: Ps 106:6-46; Ezek 20; and Neh 9:6-38.
