Psalms 103:7 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 103:7

He made known his ways unto Moses
The ways in which he himself walks, the steps and methods which he has taken to show forth his glory; his way in creation, and the order of it, as in ( Genesis 1:1-31 ) , for though, by the light of nature, it might be known that God created all things; yet, without a revelation from him, it could never have been known in what manner he made them, and the peculiar work of each of the six days, in which they were made; this was made known to Moses; as also his way in providence, which sometimes is in the deep, and past finding out: Moses was made acquainted with the methods of divine Providence, with many special instances of it, relating both to himself in his infancy and in riper years, and to the people of Israel in their march from Egypt to Canaan's land; and the Lord likewise made known unto him his way of grace and mercy, life and salvation, by Christ, which he desired to show him, and he did, ( Exodus 33:13 Exodus 33:18 Exodus 33:19 ) ( Exodus 34:6 Exodus 34:7 ) . Christ was made known to him, as the seed of the woman that should break the serpent's head, as God's salvation, old Jacob waited for: he was shown him in the types of the passover lamb, the brasen serpent, and the rock in the wilderness, and in other things; the way of atonement, by the sacrifice of Christ, was made known to him through the sacrifices which he from God enjoined the people of Israel: hence he wrote of Christ, and of what he should do and suffer; and so fully, that the Apostle Paul said no other things than what he did, ( John 5:46 ) ( Acts 26:22 Acts 26:23 ) moreover, the Lord made known to him the ways in which he would have him and the people of Israel to walk; the way of his commandments, his statutes and ordinances; which were made known to him, to deliver to them, and was a peculiar favour, ( Psalms 147:19 Psalms 147:20 ) ,

his acts unto the children of Israel;
his works, his wonderful works; his plagues on their enemies the Egyptians; his redemption of them out of the house of bondage; his leading them through the Red sea as on dry land; his feeding them with manna in the wilderness, protecting them from their enemies, bringing them into the land of Canaan, and settling them there; see ( Psalms 78:11 Psalms 78:12 ) ( Deuteronomy 29:2 Deuteronomy 29:3 ) .
