Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 25 - Evening

Pharaoh’s officials said to him,
“How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the people go, so that they may worship the Lord their God. Do you not yet realize that Egypt is ruined?”

Then Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh. “Go, worship the Lord your God,” he said.
“But tell me who will be going.”

Moses answered, “We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, and with our flocks and herds, because we are to celebrate a festival to the Lord.”

Pharaoh said, “The Lord be with you—if I let you go, along with your women and children! Clearly you are bent on evil. No! Have only the men go and worship the Lord, since that’s what you have been asking for.”

Then Moses and Aaron were driven
out of Pharaoh’s presence.

- Exodus 10:7-11

Pharaoh's Position Weakens as Moses' Strengthens His Demands    

After the death of the Egyptian’s livestock, the plague of boils and the destruction of their crops by hail Moses approached Pharaoh again. This time Moses came to warn of a coming plague of locusts, the eighth plague that would devour what is left of the flattened crops and more. Pharaoh’s court officials pleaded with Pharaoh and admit that Egypt is already ruined. Moses is called in for negotiations. Pharaoh opens the negotiations by granting Moses permission to go into the desert with the Hebrew slaves to worship their God Yahweh, the one who has destroyed Egypt.

Since, Pharaoh fears that Moses is planning on leaving and never returning, he asks Moses, “Who will be going?” Moses’ answer gives the impression that since all the families will be gone with all their livestock there may be no reason to return to Egypt once they leave. Pharaoh does not trust Moses’ motive and rejects Moses offer. Pharaoh counters by saying, “No! Have only the men go and worship the Lord.” The Greek historian Herodotus records that in Egyptian culture women worshipped along with the men in religious festivals.

Moses and Aaron are “driven” or “expelled” from Pharaoh’s presence. The Hebrew word translated “driven” or “expelled” is garas which means “banished.”

Even though it is in his own best interest to cooperate with Moses and Yahweh, Pharaoh cannot allow himself to work with Moses. Even as Pharaoh’s court officials advise him to spare the land of Egypt, Pharaoh is unable to concede anything to Moses. And, Moses continues to toy with Pharaoh’s emotions and his pride. Instead of accepting a half-hearted compromise that would weaken Yahweh’s demands, Moses speaks from what has become a position of strength. Moses rejects Pharaoh’s offer to allow the men to go worship, and instead demands that the entire family of each man is allowed to go along with their livestock. If Moses’ demands are not met, Pharaoh will face the locust plague.  Pharaoh’s attitude and his actions are isolating him from the support of his people and his base of power among the court officials. Pharaoh is not a god, he has merely presented the allusion deity. This allusion is disappearing like fog when it is exposed to the sun.

Something to Ponder??

From May 2011:

"More than 9 in 10 Americans still say 'yes' when asked
the basic question
'Do you believe in God?';
this is down only slightly from the 1940s, when Gallup first asked this question.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Timao (Gr) - Honor (Eng) - timao is Greek word that means “to fix the value,” to honor,” “to revere,” and “to fix the value.” Timao is used 21 times in the Greek New Testament including:

  • John 8:49, “ Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father,
    and you dishonor Me.”
  • John 12:26, “If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there
    My servant will be also ; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”
  • Ephesians 6:2, “ HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the
     first commandment with a promise).”
  • 1 Peter 2:17, “Honor all peoplelove the brotherhoodfear Godhonor the king."

Proto-Aeolic capitals (the decorative stone piece that was placed at the top of a column or a pilaster) were used by the Phoenicians in public buildings and palaces, including their work on the governmental buildings and the royal palaces of David and Solomon (2 Samuel 5:11). These capitals were cut from a single large rectangular stone slab and decorated on one or both sides with:

  • a triangle in the middle
  • a spiral, scrolling ornamentation coming to the left and the right of the centered triangle

One of these proto-aeolic capitals was found in the Kidron Valley just below where David’s Palace would have stood. (See image here and here) (details here and here) The proto-aeolic capitals from this same time period have also been found at other royal centers of Judah’s kingdom: Megido, Samaria, Hazor.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I cooperate with others? Or, am I too concerned with having things my way?
I will seek to cooperate and work with others to create harmony and achieve God's best.
