Yahweh's Plan To Rescue The Israelites

Then you, along with the elders of Israel, must go to the king of Egypt and say to him: Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Now please let us go on a three-day trip into the wilderness so that we may sacrifice to Yahweh our God. 19 “However, I know that the king of Egypt will not allow you to go, unless he is forced by a strong hand.
