Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 23

division Heb. peduth, trans. "reemption."

Psalms 111:9; Psalms 130:7. It is, in type, Galatians 6:14.

Verse 25

in the land

The compromises proposed by Pharaoh are those urged upon Christians today. The first says in effect: "Be a Christian if you will, but not a 'narrow' one-- stay in Egypt." Invariably it ends in world-conformity, world-pleasing, and seeking the world's money for God Psalms 50:9-17 (Cf) ; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Galatians 1:4.

Verse 28

very far The second compromise is a modification merely of the first. "Do not be too unwordly." Cf. 1 Samuel 15:3; 1 Samuel 15:9; 1 Samuel 15:13-15; 1 Samuel 15:19-23.
