Exodus 8

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:

3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

5 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the Lord, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the Lord.

9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.

11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the Lord because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

20 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

24 And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the Lord our God, as he shall command us.

28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.

29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.

30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.

31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

  1. Wow, obviously Pharaoh did not know about three strikes and your out. Some try to push the envelope a little to far sometimes, just to see if they can; not realizing that it is only by the grace of God. I know that the prayers of my parents, grandparents, etc. have saved me from myself many a times growing up. God loves us so much that even through our stubbornness He helps us grow. God had a plan for His people and it had to be fulfilled. God also has a plan for your life! JESUS today YOU will SAVE me.

  2. 9. And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

    10. And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.

    I think this verse gives us a little insight into Moses’ attitude towards this process; I can just hear him saying, “Well, glory over me! When do you want to be rid of all these frogs?” But the surprising part is when Pharaoh says tomorrow! Why not now?
    The sad part is, many people are like that today – they say they’ll quit smoking after they finish this pack of cigarettes; or they’ll quit drinking after this bottle of beer; and we’ve all heard these: I’ll live for God when I get older, or I’ll come to church when I get my life straightened out…these are all lies from the devil, it’s time to take that step now!

    2 Corinthians 6:2 KJVS
    (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

  3. The lack of Moses faith in GOD is evident (THINKING HE WOULDNT BE ABLE TO PERFORM..)
    Throughout the chapters it becomes more clear that GOD has built Moses’ faith.
    Now he can speak unto Pharaoh on his own and although Aaron continues to perform what Moses was called to do GOD IS STILL BUILDING HIS FAITH (it’s a process)

    Sometimes we get discouraged because of the circumstances or the amount of time the process takes and although sometimes you can’t see or understand the process but eventually IT ALL WORKS TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE GOD AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE…… it’s all to HIS GLORY!!!
    I LOVE YOU DADDY!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!! HALELUJAH!!!

  4. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN STINKY MESS

    13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.
    14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

    The plaques in life that we bring upon ourselves through selfish, proud and rebellious acts, create some uncomfortable situations. Just as in Pharaohs situation, we often find ourselves in a position of desperation for relief.

    What caught my attention this morning is the fact that the LORD answered the prayer of the sinner, but he did NOT make it disappear. The frogs all died, but the people were responsible to clean them up. The MESS MAKERS had to clean up their own MESS. This principal is true today. We can really MESS up our lives with a very small amount of sin.

    Repent is what we do to cause sin to die in our lives. But we must clean up the STINKY MESS that is left behind. A stinky past and a messy situation ruin a good testimony.

    How do I CLEAN UP YOUR OWN STINKY MESS?

    THE BLOOD OF JESUS – Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

    THE HOLY GHOST – Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

    WATER BAPTISM IN JESUS NAME – Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

    THE NAME OF JESUS – 1Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    THE WORD OF GOD – Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

    FOOT WASHING – John 13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  5. I agree that alot of folk turn from their wicked ways but expect God to clean up their mess. Well from experience cleaning up and dealing with you own mess teaches you ALOT and makes you stronger and less apt to be a repeat offender. Jesus is the way always.

  6. 25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

    Even the pagan king knows that you must bring gifts when you come before the King of Kings.

  7. 5 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

    Aaron never argued with the Lord about what he needed to do. When Gif and Moses we’re going back and forth about Moses going in to Pharo, It wasn’t written that Aaron said a word. But when Moses told Aaron that God said to take him, he obeyed quickly. Now look at the miracles coming out of Aaron’s hand. Look at how God is using him. It is the obedience of Aaron that has allowed God to change the course of history through him. The world will never be the same again after God gets through using Aaron. This is a testimony to obedience and faithfulness. We never hear Aaron say this isn’t working Moses. We only see Aaron doing what he is told. The other thing is that Aaron is doing what Moses is saying. God is not talking directly to Aaron but through Moses his man of God. We need a revival of listening to the man of God. The year of rebellion is over! We are ready for the miracles. Amen

  8. 32 But Pharaoh again became stubborn and refused to let the people go. (NLT)

    Gosh, Pharaoh is so stubborn…. But God is so much greater! His will for His people will not be hindered by Pharaoh.

  9. “That they may serve me”

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    Gods plan from the beginning was to create man so that he would willingly and Feely worship Him. Anytime man is in bondage it is the assignment of God to send a word of freedom that man can return to his place of service. We are not freed from depression, oppression, and sin to become spectators but we are freed to serve.

    To the carnal mind this is selfish and “work” but to a man that is walking in the spirit this is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

  10. Signs were all around Pharaoh on a daily basis that God was with Moses, Aaron and the Israelites, and it would be in his best interest to let them go as Moses had asked. Yet his heart was hardened and time and time again he toyed with them releasing then restraining.

    God does allow hard times to come to us, and just when we think we made it through the test, something else happens to endure it just a little longer. Our attitude during the test is the most important issue. Can we still have joy in the trial? Can we still give him praise? Stop complaining about everything and start praising.

    2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

  11. Ooooh the messes we make…

    14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

    Forgiveness in a relationship of love is essential. We all make mistakes and we must make amends and fix the relationship. There is a certain sadness in breaking the illusion of the perfect relationship. However, for those that pass the hurdle of forgiveness, they will find that their relationship is stronger and more meaningful than ever before. Then comes the cleanup.

    To forgive is divine. It is a trait that we learn from Jesus. He has shown us that is possible to repent from our sins and that we must forgive others as well. Forgiveness is more than saying the words, “I forgive you”. If you still harbor ill-feelings in your heart this is not true forgiveness. In order to truly forgive we must put ourselves in the other person’s place. We must try to understand how they could do such a thing. When we understand what has led them to that act, we can truly forgive.

  12. 28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.

    It’s sad we always will turn for the Grace of God during the hard times. Yet as soon as everything seems to be working out fine, we harden our heart again.

    31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

    32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    This is a vicious cycle, that takes drastic measures to end.

    Don’t limit God to just be your God during the hard times, allow Him to be your God at ALL TIMES!

  13. Just as all the signs then were showing that God was really with Moses and wanted His people set free, there are signs all around now showing that the end time is near but people (like Pharaoh) are still pushing it off, saying I’ll always have tomorrow. But just as God used Moses to show them the truth, He is going to use us to show this world that He is real and He’s coming back for His people!!

  14. 20 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    HALLELUJAH!!! I was made to praise my Lord! I will serve you Jesus for the rest of my life. I will do your will Jesus everyday of my life. You are the reason why I am standing on solid ground, you know my heart and I give everything to you Jesus!!! No matter what people may say or do YOU ARE MY FOCUS JESUS!!! I hunger and thirst for righteousness Jesus!!! No matter what may happen in life, I know that NOTHING is TO hard for you Jesus!!! I am still on cloud 9 from Sunday night…..everything you told us and the way you made me feel is just something that I cant explain. Everything I do I want to do it for your kingdom. You are my light Jesus!!! GLORY!!!!

  15. Exodus 8:19 NLT
    This is the finger of God!” the magicians exclaimed to Pharaoh. But Pharaoh’s heart remained hard. He wouldn’t listen to them, just as the Lord had predicted.

    When we harden our hearts to the will of God we have two choices. We either soften our hearts willingly or God will do it, but it can be painful! God knows how to soften a stubborn heart.

  16. Exodus 8:28 & 30-32
    28) And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: instead for me.
    30) And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.
    31) And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.
    32) And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    Pharaoh is an example of people in the world today. When crisis happens in the world, people flock to the churches seeking God, but once the crisis is over, they turn their backs on him again.

    Ps. 34:1 says, “I WILL bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall be continually in my mouth.”
    So good or bad, I WILL Bless the Lord and Praise His Name!

  17. 10“Do it tomorrow,” Pharaoh said.

    “All right,” Moses replied, “it will be as you have said. Then you will know that there is no one like the LORD our God

    How many times have we said this. “Wait until tomorrow.” Spiritually we say this all the time. We put God off thinking we have all the time. Eventually this mentality will catch up to us. We can’t be putting God off, when he calls we should respond ASAP.

  18. 20 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

    22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

    23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

    24 And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
    I’m reading these five verses and I’m saying, ” what more can God do to show that he is the GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD AND YOUR SOURCERERS HAVE NO POWER” …He literally caused flies to invade Egypt and not Goshen! Pharaoh is so stubborn and afraid that he will be over taken by the children of Israel that he just wont heed the warnings of God! But I believe with all of these things, Hes letting pharaohs heart harden for a reason. I believe he is using this to show Moses that if he just trust in God and his word he will do what he says he will do! I think he does that for us too. He puts us in situations that we have to say ok Lord how do I do this? Or help me Lord cause I cant do this on my own. But if we trust him we shall over come!

  19. Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    Don’t harden your hearts people of God. He is coming back.

  20. Exodus 8:31-32 (NLT)

    And the Lord did as Moses asked and caused the swarms of flies to disappear from Pharaoh, his officials, and his people. Not a single fly remained. But Pharaoh again became stubborn and refused to let the people go.

    There is a point of no return in living for God. This is where we get to a place where our circumstances and situations no longer dictate whether or not we remain faithful.

    As soon as the plagues lifted Ol Pharaoh quickly turned his back on God and his people. A relationship, a true and serious daily walk with God will supersede anything that life throws at us. How can we backslide if we make it about him and truly walk with him everyday.

    It’s not about the works but the God of the works.

  21. Wicked get rations look for signs but signs do not produced loyalty. Pharaoh showed his stubbornness in the chapter. Even disciples of Jesus stopped following him when things got tough. True discipleship is not the product of emotionalism or miracles, it is the product of commitment and love.

  22. “But when Pharaoh saw that he had some breathing room, he got stubborn again and wouldn’t listen to Moses and Aaron. Just as GOD had said.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭8:15‬ ‭MSG‬‬
    http://bible.com/97/exo.8.15.msg

    After multiple strikes you would think that pharaoh would understand that God is much more stubborn and patient. Fools get what fools ask for…

  23. “” ‘ “But on that day I will treat the area of Goshen differently from yours. That is where my people live. There will not be large numbers of flies in Goshen. Then you will know that I, the Lord, am in this land. I will treat my people differently from yours. The miraculous sign will take place tomorrow.” ‘ “”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭8:22-23‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Thankful for the goodness and mercy of the Lord. 

  24. 30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.

    31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

    32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.
    You would think after all the warnings from God and moses, after all the infestations and plagues, Pharoah would give in but no. Pharoah has hardend his heart and gotten bitter. Its just like in today’s world when we dont harken to Gods voice when were heading in the wrong direction but ignore the fact that you are and then you get mad at God or the Man of God in your life. The unchurched that your
    inviting and they seem so bitter and filled with hate. Dont worry when they finally see that God was right, and that he is in control they most likely will have a change of heart.

  25. 29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.

    30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.

    31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

    32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

  26. “And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.” Pharaoh was so full of himself that he did not fear God (Jesus), believe the word of God, or the man of God. One that is full of self and doesn’t believe or fear God, cannot be trusted. Dear God, expose and remove deceptiveness and let not our hearts be hardened but humble unto you; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In GOD we trust”. “One Nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. What a mighty GOD we serve! Thank GOD for his word. GOD bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in JESUS name, Amen!

  27. 31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

    32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    For some people it won’t matter how many miracles they see or how much evidence they see, they will refuse to accept that Jesus is God. No matter how many plagues got sent against Pharaoh, he would not repent. Some people today can be the same way.

  28. v 11 And the frogs shall depsrt from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

    THE LORD IS GRACIOUS. Not only did HE give them fresh water again , HE took care of the frog problems as well.
    GOD had warned Pharaoh through HIS servants but Pharaoh was a stubborn man.
    GOD is patient, or longsuffering 1 Peter 3: 20
    We must heed to HIS WARNINGS.

  29. Wait upon the Lord, he will not only renew your strength but can set you free from your oppressors who get in the way of you serving the Lord your God. Keep the faith, and wait upon the Lord Jesus Christ. It is God, who avenges us and to set at liberty those who are captive. He took captivity, captive, he has paid the price for our freedom. “It’s Ours”……..”Through Christ’s Jesus Blood”…………………………

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    Verse 1, tells the entire story of the passion and the power of God, and he can do anything to break us free. But God’s compassion is also exampled here, think about it, if your the creator and you have all the power to do anything. But, God decided only to send frogs, then lice, then flies, etc. etc. This was a display of progressive disobedient punishment or level increased upon each negative reaction of Pharaoh. He had a choice, but what if God decided to send Lions, Bears, Elephants, or Rhinos, you get the point, with Hurricanes, Tornados, etc. etc. Pharaoh had many chances to turn his heart, but was truly hardened and he sealed his fait with God.

    “Obey & Submit”…………………………………………………………………………………….

  30. 22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

    I still have not heard the Goshen preaching that pastor gave months before we even had heard of POFW. Seeing in scripture how God spared this land in this chapter, and how in the times of Joseph, God allowed Jacob and all his stay in this place are signs to me how blessed this land really is. It was also the first way point to the exodus.

    May God keeps in the spiritual land of Goshen, to be blessed beyond measure.

  31. Moses was finally able to step I tot the position that God had for him as a leader. He is now just having Aaron as support and not as the # 1 guy. Moses has built his faith enough to know that God is using him to do great things. The Bible even said that the Lord did what Moses said. That means that God was with him and He heard what Moses said. Moses’ faith lead him to obedience and gratness.

  32. 23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

    Likewise we are not of the world and ahould not conform to the things of the world. The church is called to be seperate living in righteousness.

  33. 8Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Pray to the Lord to take the frogs away from me and my people, and I will let your people go to offer sacrifices to the Lord.”

    Pharoah pleads with Moses and Aaon to pray to the Lord to lift the plauge of the frogs. He sounds sincere and repentant but is he really? He says he will let the people go to offer sacrifices to the Lord. This exhibits that he may not understand the situation he is going through with a hardened heart and nation in distress, but he knows that serving and worshiping (vs1) is a sacrifice. Holding back God’s worship will create discord, and one that has been going on for 400 years. Just because God didn’t rain down hail and brimstone at the first sign of slavery doesn’t mean he didn’t care about the condition of his people. God will bring His own vengence on his own time, we just need to trust him and continue to serve him in our current position.

  34. Exodus 8: 24 And the Lord did this Dense swarms of flies poured into Pharaoh’s palace and into the house of his officials throughout Egypt the land was ruined by the flies. Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said. Go sacrifice to your God here in the land. But Moses said that would not be right. The sacrifices we offer the Lord our God would be detestable to the Egyptians. And if we offer sacrifices that are detestable in their eyes will they not stone us?

  35. Pharaoh is plagued with frogs; their vast numbers made them unignorable.God could have plagued Egypt with lions, or bears, or wolves, or with birds of prey, but he chose to do it by these despicable creatures. God, when he pleases, can arm the smallest parts of the creation against us. He thereby humbled Pharaoh. They should neither eat, nor drink, nor sleep in quiet; but wherever they were, they should be troubled by the croak. God’s curse on man will pursue him wherever he goes, and lie heavy upon him whatever he does. Pharaoh gave way under this plague. He promises that he will let the people go. Those who bid defiance to God and prayer, first or last, will be made to see their need of both. But when Pharaoh saw there was respite, he hardened his heart. Till the heart is renewed by the grace of God, the thoughts made by affliction do not stick; the convictions wear off, and the promises that were given are forgotten. Until the state of the air is changed, what thaws in the sun will freeze again in the shade.

  36. 32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    Some people’s heart harden after they see Gods miricles
