Deuteronomy 24:9

 

 

"Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam on the way as you came out of Egypt.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Remember what the Lord thy God did unto Miriam,.... Who was stricken with leprosy for speaking against Moses, and was shut up seven days; and they are reminded of this instance, partly to warn them against entertaining evil suspicions, and surmises of persons in power and authority, and speaking evil of them; and partly to expect that punishment would certainly be inflicted on them, should they be guilty of the same crime; nor should they think it hard, either to be smitten with leprosy, or to be shut up for it; since Miriam, a prophetess, and the sister of Moses, was so used; and that when

by the way, after that ye were come out of Egypt: when upon their journey, and were retarded in it, and obliged to stay at least seven days before they could proceed on in it; see Numbers 12:14.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Deuteronomy 24:9 Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.

Ver. 9. Did unto Miriam.] When he spat in her face, and spared her not, though a prophetess, and a conductress of God’s people to Canaan. [Micah 6:4] God will not pass by the sins of his saints, if scandalous especially, without a sensible check.

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible

Ver. 9. Remember what the Lord thy God did unto Miriam This may be understood, either as an admonition, that they ought not to think much of being shut out of the camp, and going through the appointed purifications for the leprosy, since a person of so much distinction as Miriam was not exempted from that law; or it may be considered as an exhortation, to take care lest they spoke evil of dignities, or disobeyed the command of the priest, which might bring such a stroke upon them as God inflicted upon Miriam.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

God smote Miriam with leprosy for her contempt of Moses, and therefore thou mayst expect the same or like punishment, if thou dost despise the counsel and direction of the Levites, which I have set over thee, and commanded thee to observe in this and the like matters.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

Deuteronomy 24:9. Remember what the Lord did unto Miriam — This seems to have been intended as an admonition, to take care lest they spoke evil of dignities, or disobeyed the commands of the priest, which might bring such a stroke upon them as God inflicted upon Miriam.
