There you are! Glad you’re back so
soon to find out what happens next in our story about Moses in Egypt and the
plagues that God has brought upon Pharaoh.
It’s time in God’s plan to bring
everything to a memorable conclusion for Pharaoh. The Lord said to Moses,
I’m going to bring just one more plague to Pharaoh and Egypt and after that,
he’ll let you go. When he lets you go, he will throw you out altogether.
Go and tell the people to ask their
neighbors for jewels of silver and gold. And God gave his people approval
in the Egyptians eyes and Moses was very respected by Pharaoh’s servants and

OF EGYPT SUMMARY
Moses told the people, both the
Egyptians and the children of Israel, This is what the Lord says: About
midnight I will go out amidst Egypt, and all the firstborn in the land of
Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on the throne to the
firstborn of the maidservant that works behind the mill and all the
firstborn of the beasts.
There will be a dreadful cry
throughout all the land of Egypt like there has never been before or will
ever be again. But of the children of Israel, none will be harmed so that
you’ll know how the Lord feels differently about the Egyptians and Israel.
And all of Pharaoh’s servants shall bow themselves to me and say, Get out
and all the people that follow you, and after that I will go out. Moses was
very angered when he left Pharaoh.

and Aaron did all these wonders in front of Pharaoh and the Lord hardened

AND FIRSTBORN OF EGYPT DISCUSSION
Let’s talk about Moses’ character for
a moment. It bears mentioning that Moses believes strongly in justice.
Don’t forget that forty years earlier, he killed an Egyptian that was
beating a Hebrew slave, and Moses, even though he was by blood a Hebrew, was
raised as an Egyptian. However, in the name of justice, he felt it
necessary to defend righteousness. It’s no wonder that by the time he
delivered the announcements of 10 plagues on Pharaoh and Egypt, that he
would become a little angry with Pharaoh. And it’s no wonder that God chose
Moses for the job of delivering His people out of bondage in Egypt.
When we come back next time, we’ll
find out more about this last plague on Pharaoh, and how the children of
Israel were protected from it. It’s called the Passover. Be sure to join
us again for another exciting story at Daily Bread.
