    • Madison King

    Why did God harden the pharaohs heart?

    • Jailynn Robinson

      Pharaoh was not an innocent or godly man. He was a brutal dictator overseeing the terrible abuse and oppression of the Israelites, who likely numbered over 1.5 million people at that time. He also hardened his own heart by keeping the Israelites.

      But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my people the Israelites.” It seems unjust for God to harden Pharaoh’s heart and then to punish Pharaoh and Egypt for what Pharaoh decided when his heart was hardened. Why would God harden Pharaoh’s heart just so He could judge Egypt more severely with additional plagues?

    How did Moses mom hide him for three months?

    • Madison King

      The Hebrew midwives refused to participate in the infanticide and deceived Pharaoh so they could avoid killing the baby boys (Exodus 1:17–19). Moses’ mother Jochebed hid Moses in a basket of bulrushes and set him afloat on the Nile River to preserve his life (Exodus 2:3).


  6. Amber Robinson

    Why was Moses so reluctant to go back to Egypt?

    • Niko Varano

      One reason was that Moses wasn’t confident in himself as a leader and speaker. In Exodus 4:10 he says his speech isn’t the best and that it’s not eloquent, or that it’s not forceful or strong.

      (Exodus 4:10)

    Why did God harden Pharaoh’s heart?

    • Autumn Smith

      God harden Pharaoh’s heart because he was an ungodly man and he was a dictator and overseeing abuse. (gotquestions.otg)

    • Carolyn Hanafee

      The Pharoah was an evil man and his people did not seem to oppose his evil actions. The Pharoah had a chance to let the people go before the plagues and refused. The Pharoah hardened his own heart before the first few plagues. He was sinning against God.

    • Daniel Bylsma

      So that the pharaoh will say no of letting the Israel go and to send the other plague to Egypt to show the Israel that God is more powerful than the Egyptian gods
