Pharaoh's heart
#2
Lots of good questions here, wondering how the answers will help you.

So one really should understand the Hebrew it is written in.

Why?

Because your first question pertaining to Exodus 4:21 the Hebrew word used actually means "strengthened" his heart.

So what is the difference?

Well, if you read the story carefully, you'll see that G-d and Moses gave Pharaoh a chance, a chance to listen and let the Israelite's go free.

Pharaoh didn't believe in the G-d of Israel, he did not know who he was. He probably thought he was just another god like one of the Egyptian ones.

Then you'll see Pharaoh say in Exodus 9:27 -

""I have sinned this time. The Lord is the righteous One, and I and my people are the guilty ones."


Here you'll see Pharaoh admitting to sinning and what looks to be an acknowledgement the God of Moses is indeed different than the gods he was used to.

Now that Pharaoh has admitted he knows the God of Moses and then still refuses to listen, God hardens his heart.

His chance is over!

If you want to read an excellent book that goes into this further, I recommend reading Rabbi David Fohrmans book "The Exodus You Almost Passed Over"
