    Barnes' Notes on Acts 7:34

    I have seen ... - The repetition of this word is in accordance with the usage of the Hebrew writers when they wish to represent anything emphatically.

    Their groaning - Under their oppressions.

    Am come down - This is spoken in accordance with human conceptions. It means that God was about to deliver them.

    I will send thee ... - This is a mere summary of what is expressed at much greater length in Exodus 3:7-10.
