DO YOU REALLY KNOW JEHOVAH GOD? FACTS ~ Pharaoh Learned Who Jehovah Was, Sadly We See Proof Today That NationÂ’s Refuse to Also Know Him!Â The unresponsive Pharaoh of the Exodus. Jehovah foreknew that Pharaoh would refuse permission for the Israelites to leave Â“except by a strong handÂ” (Ex 3:19, 20), and he foreordained the plague resulting in the death of the firstborn. (Ex 4:22, 23) The apostle PaulÂ’s discussion of GodÂ’s dealings with Pharaoh is often incorrectly understood to mean that God arbitrarily hardens the heart of individuals according to his foreordained purpose, without regard for the individualÂ’s prior inclination, or heart attitude. (Ro 9:14-18) Likewise, according to many translations, God advised Moses that he would Â“harden [PharaohÂ’s] heart.Â” (Ex 4:21; compare Ex 9:12; 10:1, 27.) However, some translations render the Hebrew account to read that Jehovah Â“let [PharaohÂ’s] heart wax boldÂ” (Ro); Â“let [PharaohÂ’s] heart become obstinate.Â” (NW) Jehovah allowed the matter to develop in this way to the full length of ten plagues in order to make manifest his own power and cause his name to be made known earth wide.Â—Ro 9:17, 18.
