Sunday in Lent 5 - Exodus 1

العربية: Deutsch: Alle Pyramiden von Gizeh auf...العربية: Deutsch: Alle Pyramiden von Gizeh auf einem Bild. English: All Giza Pyramids in one shot. Русский: Все пирамиды Гизы на изображении.

The kings of the earth plot in vain against the Lord and His chosen ones, and He who sits enthroned in Heaven laughs as Psalm 2 says.  Good thing to remember as opposition to Christianity becomes more blatant.  Pharaoh wants to stop the Hebrews from increasing and deserting Egypt - and his schemes to keep it from happening actually bring it about!
Check out the repetitive parallelism of 1:7 - Moses is making certain you catch on that while the slavery might indicate God had abandoned them, in actuality God was right there with them doing His Genesis 1 blessing to make the Hebrews fruitfully multiply.
