Exodus 6:10-7:25

  1. God had called Moses and promised deliverance to the people. Why did he delay so long in fulfilling his promise?
    What did Moses learn from these difficult experiences and delays?
  2. Why was Pharaoh so confident and so adamant in disobeying God’s command?
    See particularly 7:11-13, 22, 23. How does this king of opposition to God show itself now?
    Cf. 2 Tim. 3:1-9.

Note.6:12. ‘Of uncircumcised lips’: uncircumcision symbolizes unfitness for God’s presence, and hence, more generally, unfitness for his service. Cf. 4:10.
