“¶ But the Lord hardened Pharaohs heart, and he would not let them goe.”
King James Version (KJV)
24. ¶ And Pharaoh called vnto Moses, and said, Goe ye, serue the Lord: onely let your flockes and your herds be stayed: let your litle ones also goe with you. 25. And Moses saide, Thou must giue vs also sacrifices, and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice vnto the Lord our God. 26. Our cattell also shall goe with vs: there shall not an hoofe bee left behind: for thereof must we take to serue the Lord our God: and we knowe not with what wee must serue the Lord, vntill we come thither. 27. ¶ But the Lord hardened Pharaohs heart, and he would not let them goe. 28. And Pharaoh said vnto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thy selfe: see my face no more: for in that day thou seest my face, thou shalt die. 29. And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face againe no more.
