    So the Lord alone did lead him - By his power, and by his only, were they brought out of Egypt, and supported in the wilderness.

    And there was no strange god - They had help from no other quarter. The Egyptian idols were not able to save their own votaries; but God not only saved his people, but destroyed the Egyptians.

With him - To assist him at that work or to deliver them. The more unworthy they in giving to idols a share in that worship which they owe to God only.
