Excerpt from The Expositor's Dictionary of Texts, Vol. 1 of 2: Containing Outlines, Expositions, and Illustrations of the Bible Texts, With Full References to the Best Homiletic Literature; Genesis to St. Mark Unobserved sins And he (moses) looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian.' exodus u. 12. I. To think oneself unobserved often makes way for sin. Moses was unwatched and unobserved and it was the thought of being unobserved that tempted Moses to his homicide. There is a somewhat similar scene in the New Testament in the Story of the denial of Simon Peter. What made it so easy for Peter to fall that night was the thought that there was nobody to see. There are some natures which are intensely sensitive to the reproaching or Upbraiding look of human eyes. There are multitudes to whom the smile of heaven means little, but who would not forfeit for worlds the smile of men. There are many whom the fear of God cannot restrain who are yet restrained by the fear of human censure. And Sin, taking occasion by that law, whispers to men that they are unobserved, and so makes it easier to transgress.
