Exodus 11:8-10

Context
11:8 All these your servants will come down to me and bow down 1  to me, saying, ‘Go, you and all the people who follow 2  you,’ and after that I will go out.” Then Moses 3  went out from Pharaoh in great anger.

11:9 The Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh will not listen to you, so that my wonders 4  may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.”

11:10 So Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not release the Israelites from his land.

1 sn Moses’ anger is expressed forcefully. “He had appeared before Pharaoh a dozen times either as God’s emissary or when summoned by Pharaoh, but he would not come again; now they would have to search him out if they needed help” (B. Jacob, Exodus, 289-90).

2 tn Heb “that are at your feet.”

3 tn Heb “and he”; the referent (Moses) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 sn The thought is essentially the same as in Exod 7:3-4, but the wonders, or portents, here refer to what is yet to be done in Egypt.
