Wicked People of the Bible: Pharaoh of Egypt
Pharaoh of Egypt Drowns All Hebrew Baby Boys
attempting to weaken them, but Moses was saved. Exodus 1:22
We read in Exodus chapters 1 through 12 about the Pharaoh of Egypt who had enslaved God's people, the Hebrews, for over 400 years. He was very arrogant believing that he was a god and when the one and only TRUE God sent Moses demanding that he let the Hebrews go, he refused saying:
“Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go?
I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2)
Moses was saved to be used by God carrying God's message: 'LET MY PEOPLE GO!'
But Pharaoh refused; so God send ten plagues: [None of the plagues affected the Hebrews who dwelled in the land of Goshen … only the Egyptians suffered.]
So finally Pharaoh said okay okay GO! But before too long he had a change
of heart and decided to rescind his decree of freedom and gave chase.
Exodus 14:30 After God stacked up the water allowing the Hebrews to safely cross the sea on dry land - the Egyptian Pharaoh and all his chariots came charging after them - but alas God had the water coming crashing down drowning them all.
Conclusion: The Bible says that there were 600,000 Hebrew men plus women & children, that left that night (Exodus 12:37). This ended 430 years of the Children of Israel living in the land of Egypt (Exodus 12:40, 41).
