Again everything is repeated. We see a pattern here of our God’s patience with His people. Such a Mighty God taking the time to repeat Himself. How many times has God had to repeat Himself to us before we do what He asks? The Israelite’s had angered God the first time around but instead of getting by with just not doing it, they are getting a second chance to get it right. When God gives us an assignment sometimes we mess up out of ignorance; sometimes we don’t do it, out of rebellion; sometimes we tell God that we will after we do something else. Our God will and does give more chances. When we completely refuse and go into total rebellion, He will accomplish it anyway but through someone else.
