"And observe further in this verse, how the Lord repeats this sin of murmuring, how long shall I bear with this evil congregation which murmur against me? Secondly, I have heard their murmuring. Thirdly, which they murmur against me: Murmur, murmur, murmur, three times in one verse he repeats it; and this is to show his indignation against the thing: When you express indignation against a thing, you will repeat it over again, and again; now the Lord because he would express his indignation against this sin, he repeats it over again, and again, and it follows; in verse 28. Say unto them, as truly as I live faith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you."
