Ex 15:22-24

Post by clark thompson on Mon May 30, 2016 8:59 am

Exodus 15:22-24 King James Version (KJV)
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

Exodus 15:22-24 Darby Translation (DARBY)
22 And Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And they came to Marah, and could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

22 Three days without water this was a big problem, they were thirsty and getting to the point where it would prevent them from moving and be their death. The body is not designed to go without water, no had yet died to due to the lack of water otherwise it would have been mentioned but they felt they may have been close, the body dies in about a week without water but with the heat of the desert this would have been faster.

23 They came to water but could not drink it, they would felt excitement when they saw the water until they realized that it could not be drunk, we as Christians have received the Living Water found in Jesus and thru Him we wont thirst again but every other water of the world gets bitter and to a point where we can not drink it.

24 They looked to Moses, this was one the times they should have went to Moses, they were not just complaining they were worried for their lives because they knew they could not live without water, Moses was the one that would go before the Lord, so it is similar to us go to God in prayer with our problems.
