We are studying Exodus 11.
The Plague on the Firstborn
The Lord told Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and Egypt. After that, he’ll let you go from here, and when he does, he’ll drive you out completely. Tell the people that men and women alike are to ask their neighbors for articles of silver and gold.” The Lord made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and Moses himself was highly regarded in Egypt by Pharaoh’s officials and by the people.
So Moses said, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Around midnight I’ll go throughout Egypt. Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh to the firstborn son of the slave girl and all the firstborn of the cattle as well. There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt — worse than there has ever been or ever will be again. But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any man or animal.’ Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel. All these officials of yours will come to me, bowing down before me and saying, ‘Go, you and all the people who follow you!’ After that I will leave.”
Then Moses, hot with anger, left Pharaoh. The Lord had said to Moses, “Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you — so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt.” Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go out of his country.
Seriously?! Even after his son was taken. This man truly has no soul.
