As a further evidence that God was not moved by race considerations, and did not give the law exclusively to the Jews as a nation, we may notice the fact that when the Jews left Egypt, “a mixed multitude went up also with them.” Exodus 12:38; Numbers 11:4. This “mixed multitude” was composed of Egyptians, and, no doubt, people of other nationalities. These went along with the Jews, and with them received the law from God at Mount Sinai.
