Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 17:14-16

_ _ Write this for a memorial — If the bloody character of this statute seems to be at variance with the mild and merciful character of God, the reasons are to be sought in the deep and implacable vengeance they meditated against Israel (Psalms 83:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
