SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:16 Porque a la verdad yo te he puesto para declarar en ti mi potencia, y que mi Nombre sea contado en toda la tierra.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 9:16 Verse 16. But truly, on this very account, have I caused thee to SUBSIST, ( Żyjdm[h heemadticha,) that I MIGHT cause thee to see my power, ( yjk ta Żtarh harotheca eth cochi,) and that my name MIGHT be declared throughout all the earth, (or, Ňrah lkb becol haarets, in all THIS LAND.) See Ainsworth and Houbigant.
Thus God gave this impious king to know that it was in consequence of his especial providence that both he and his people had not been already destroyed by means of the past plagues; but God had preserved him for this very purpose, that he might have a farther opportunity of manifesting that he, Jehovah, was the only true God for the full conviction both of the Hebrews and Egyptians, that the former might follow and the latter fear before him. Judicious critics of almost all creeds have agreed to translate the original as above, a translation which it not only can bear but requires, and which is in strict conformity to both the Septuagint and Targum.
Neither the Hebrew Żyjdm[h heemadticha, I have caused thee to stand; nor the apostle's translation of it, Rom. ix. 17, exhgeira se, I have raised thee; nor that of the Septuagint, eneken toutou diethrhqhv, on this account art thou preserved, viz., in the past plagues; can countenance that most exceptionable meaning put on the words by certain commentators, viz., "That God ordained or appointed Pharaoh from all eternity, by certain means, to this end; that he made him to exist in time; that he raised him to the throne; promoted him to that high honour and dignity; that he preserved him, and did not cut him off as yet; that he strengthened and hardened his heart; irritated, provoked, and stirred him up against his people Israel, and suffered him to go all the lengths he did go in his obstinacy and rebellion; all which was done to show in him his power in destroying him in the Red Sea. The sum of which is, that this man was raised up by God in every sense for God to show his power in his destruction." So man speaks; thus GOD hath not spoken. See Henry on the place.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-21 - Moses is here ordered to deliver a dreadful message to Pharaoh Providence ordered it, that Moses should have a man of such a fierc and stubborn spirit as this Pharaoh to deal with; and every thing mad it a most signal instance of the power of God has to humble and brin down the proudest of his enemies. When God's justice threatens ruin his mercy at the same time shows a way of escape from it. God not onl distinguished between Egyptians and Israelites, but between some Egyptians and others. If Pharaoh will not yield, and so prevent the judgment itself, yet those that will take warning, may take shelter Some believed the things which were spoken, and they feared, and house their servants and cattle, and it was their wisdom. Even among the servants of Pharaoh, some trembled at God's word; and shall not the sons of Israel dread it? But others believed not, and left their cattl in the field. Obstinate unbelief is deaf to the fairest warnings, an the wisest counsels, which leaves the blood of those that perish upo their own heads.
