Exodus 10:8-9

Context

10:8 So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, “Go, serve the Lord your God. Exactly who is going with you?” 1  10:9 Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, and with our sheep and our cattle we will go, because we are to hold 2  a pilgrim feast for the Lord.”

Exodus 10:26

Context
10:26 Our livestock must 3  also go with us! Not a hoof is to be left behind! For we must take 4  these animals 5  to serve the Lord our God. Until we arrive there, we do not know what we must use to serve the Lord.” 6 

1 tn The question is literally “who and who are the ones going?” (מִי וָמִי הַהֹלְכִים, mi vami haholÿkhim). Pharaoh’s answer to Moses includes this rude question, which was intended to say that Pharaoh would control who went. The participle in this clause, then, refers to the future journey.

2 tn Heb “we have a pilgrim feast (חַג, khag) to Yahweh.”

3 tn This is the obligatory imperfect nuance. They were obliged to take the animals if they were going to sacrifice, but more than that, since they were not coming back, they had to take everything.

4 tn The same modal nuance applies to this verb.

5 tn Heb “from it,” referring collectively to the livestock.

6 sn Moses gives an angry but firm reply to Pharaoh’s attempt to control Israel; he makes it clear that he has no intention of leaving any pledge with Pharaoh. When they leave, they will take everything that belongs to them.
