And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall go in after them: and I will get me honor upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. (ASV)
God "hardens Pharaoh's heart", to prevent him from simply letting the Hebrews go. See the Exodus 7:13 page for a detailed summary of the verses relating to this issue. --Robert Stevens 12:17, 17 Aug 2006 (CDT)
