Book of Exodus Chapter 11 Summary

Prepare for the Final Plague

  • God lets Moses know that something big is coming. God instructs Moses that the Israelites should all ask their neighbors for silver and gold. 
  • Moses tells Pharaoh that God will claim every Egyptian firstborn (the prince, the slaves' first sons, the animals' firstborn—everyone) at midnight. That means they'll die.
  • Yikes.
  • And guess what? Pharaoh refuses to let the people go after God hardens his heart again.
