Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 17:4

_ _ Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? — His language, instead of betraying any signs of resentment or vindictive imprecation on a people who had given him a cruel and unmerited treatment, was the expression of an anxious wish to know what was the best to be done in the circumstances (compare Matthew 5:44; Romans 12:21).
