Exodus 11:3-4

Context

11:3 (Now the Lord granted the people favor with 1  the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, respected by Pharaoh’s servants and by the Egyptian people.) 2 

11:4 Moses said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘About midnight 3  I will go throughout Egypt, 4 

1 tn Heb “in the eyes of.”

2 tn Heb “in the eyes of the servants of Pharaoh and in the eyes of the people.” In the translation the word “Egyptian” has been supplied to clarify that the Egyptians and not the Israelites are meant here.

sn The presence of this clause about Moses, which is parenthetical in nature, further indicates why the Egyptians gave rather willingly to the Israelites. They were impressed by Moses’ miracles and his power with Pharaoh. Moses was great in stature – powerful and influential.

3 tn Heb “about the middle of the night.”

4 tn Heb “I will go out in the midst of Egypt.”
