I want u to give me the coment of chapter 1

jonas morato

we have here I. God's kindness to Israel, in multiplying them exceedingly ver. 1-7. II. The Egyptians' wickedness to them, 1. Oppressing and enslaving them, ver 8-14. 2. Murdering their children, ver. 15-22. Thus whom the cout of heaven blessed of Egypt cursed, and for that reason.


Thus whom the court of heaven . . . ( the last sentence ) pardon.


God bless the Hebrew women, for not listening to what Pharaoh said.


10/10 would save Hebrews again - Moses


What a sad, sad account that the new king had no regard for human life.
