    VERSE (28) -
    Ho 10:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:28

    Y dijo el Faraón: Yo os dejaré ir para que sacrifiquéis al SEÑOR vuestro Dios en el desierto, con tal que no vayáis más lejos; orad por mí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 8:28

    Verse 28. I will let you go only ye shall not go very
    far away] Pharaoh relented because the hand of God was heavy upon him; but he was not willing to give up his gain. The Israelites were very profitable to him; they were slaves of the state, and their hard labour was very productive: hence he professed a willingness, first to tolerate their religion in the land, (ver. 25;) or to permit them to go into the wilderness, so that they went not far away, and would soon return. How ready is foolish man, when the hand of God presses him sore, to compound with his Maker! He will consent to give up some sins, provided God will permit him to keep others.

    Entreat for me.] Exactly similar to the case of Simon Magus, who, like Pharaoh, fearing the Divine judgments, begged an interest in the prayers of Peter, Acts viii. 24.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-32 - Pharaoh was early at his false devotions to the river; and shall we be for more sleep and more slumber, when any service to the Lord is to be done? The Egyptians and the Hebrews were to be marked in the plague of flies. The Lord knows them that are his, and will make it appear perhaps in this world, certainly in the other, that he has set the apart for himself. Pharaoh unwillingly entered into a treaty with Mose and Aaron. He is content they should sacrifice to their God, provide they would do it in the land of Egypt. But it would be an abominatio to God, should they offer the Egyptian sacrifices; and it would be a abomination to the Egyptians, should they offer to God the objects of the worship of the Egyptians, namely, their calves or oxen. Those wh would offer acceptable sacrifice to God, must separate themselves from the wicked and profane. They must also retire from the world. Israe cannot keep the feast of the Lord, either among the brick-kilns or among the flesh-pots of Egypt. And they must sacrifice as God shal command, not otherwise. Though they were in slavery to Pharaoh, ye they must obey God's commands. Pharaoh consents for them to go into the wilderness, provided they do not go so far but that he might fetch the back again. Thus, some sinners, in a pang of conviction, part with their sins, yet are loth they should go very far away; for when the fright is over, they will turn to them again. Moses promised the removal of this plague. But let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more Be not deceived; God is not mocked: if we think to cheat God by a sha repentance and a false surrender of ourselves to him, we shall put fatal cheat upon our own souls. Pharaoh returned to his hardness Reigning lusts break through the strongest bonds, and make men presum and go from their word. Many seem in earnest, but there is some reserve, some beloved, secret sin. They are unwilling to look upo themselves as in danger of everlasting misery. They will refrain from other sins; they do much, give much, and even punish themselves much They will leave it off sometimes, and, as it were, let their sin depar a little way; but will not make up their minds to part with all an follow Christ, bearing the cross. Rather than that, they venture all They are sorrowful, but depart from Christ, determined to keep the world at present, and they hope for some future season, when salvatio may be had without such costly sacrifices; but, at length, the poor sinner is driven away in his wickedness, and left without hope to lament his folly __________________________________________________________________
