John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 3:24

Thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness — Lord, perfect what thou hast begun. The more we see of God's glory in his works, the more we desire to see. And the more we are affected with what we have seen of God, the better we are prepared for farther discoveries.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
