33:3 They departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day 1 after the Passover the Israelites went out defiantly 2 in plain sight 3 of all the Egyptians.
33:4 Now the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn, whom the Lord had killed among them; the Lord also executed judgments on their gods.
1 tn Heb “morrow.”
2 tn Heb “with a high hand”; the expression means “defiantly; boldly” or “with confidence.” The phrase is usually used for arrogant sin and pride, the defiant fist, as it were. The image of the high hand can also mean the hand raised to deliver the blow (Job 38:15).
3 tn Heb “in the eyes.”
