Welcome and thanks for reading.

Last week we read that between each plague, Moses told the Pharaoh to release the Israelites.  Each time, the
Pharaoh refused.

Finally, Moses told the Pharaoh that God is sending one more plague.  “At midnight I will go throughout Egypt.
Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son
of the slave girl, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well.  There will be loud wailing
throughout Egypt.”

Exodus 12:31  During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Up!  Leave my people, you and
your Israelites!  Go, worship the Lord as you have requested.”

Exodus 12:37  The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Succoth.  “There were about six hundred thousand
men on foot, besides women and children.  Many other people went up with them, as well as large droves of
livestock, both flocks and herds.

After 430 years, to the very day, the Israelites left Egypt.  They were no longer slaves.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
