2 And Moses [Moshe] called unto all Israel [kol Yisroel], and said unto them, Ye have seen all that Yahweh did before your eyes in the land of Egypt [Eretz Mitzrayim] unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants [avadim], and unto all his land;

3 The great temptations [massot hagedolot] which thine eyes [otot] have seen, the signs, and those great miracles [mofetim hagedolim]:

4 Yet Yahweh hath not given you an heart [lev] to perceive [lev for da'as], and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.


Why God chose a people so intractable we shall probably understand to a nicety if we are permitted to see the glorious climax of the plan. It has been said by some that if He had chosen the Greeks instead of the Hebrews, it would have been more of a success; but this is a shallow-minded criticism.

Human nature everywhere is an evil thing, and we may be quite sure that the plan that God has made in choosing the seed of Abraham His friend is the very best adapted for the ultimate realization of His glory upon earth.

Law of Moses Ch 9.
