* who is.
It seems to have been a general opinion, that if God appeared
to men, it was for the purpose of destroying them. And indeed
most of the extraordinary manifestations of God were in the
way of judgment; but here it was widely different. God did
appear in a sovereign and extraordinary manner; but it was for
the instruction, direction, deliverance, and support of his
people. 1. They heard this voice speaking with them in a
distinct, articulate manner. 2. They saw the fire, the
symbol of his presence, the appearances of which demonstrated
it to be supernatural. 3. Notwithstanding God appeared so
terrible, yet no person was destroyed; for he came not to
destroy but to save.
