VERSE (29) -
Ex 11:4-8; 12:30,31 Heb 11:27

SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:29

Y Moisés respondió: Bien has dicho; no veré más tu rostro.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 10:29

Verse 29. I will see thy face again no more.] It is very likely that this was the last interview that Moses had with
Pharaoh, for what is related, chap. xi. 4-8, might have been spoken on this very occasion, as it is very possible that God gave Moses to understand his purpose to slay the first-born, while before Pharaoh at this time; so, in all probability, the interview mentioned here was the last which Moses had with the Egyptian king. It is true that in chap. xii. 31 it is stated that Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron by night, and ordered them to leave Egypt, and to take all their substance with them, which seems to imply that there was another interview, but the words may imply no more than that Moses and Aaron received such a message from Pharaoh. If, however, this mode of interpreting these passages should not seem satisfactory to any, he may understand the words of Moses thus: I will see thy face - seek thy favour, no more in behalf of my people, which was literally true; for if Moses did appear any more before Pharaoh, it was not as a supplicant, but merely as the ambassador of God, to denounce his judgments by giving him the final determination of Jehovah relative to the destruction of the first-born.

1. To the observations at the conclusion of the preceding chapter, we may add that at first view it seems exceedingly strange that, after all the proofs Pharaoh had of the power of God, he should have acted in the manner related in this and the preceding chapters, alternately sinning and repenting; but it is really a common case, and multitudes who condemn the conduct of this miserable Egyptian king, act in a similar manner. They relent when smarting under God's judgments, but harden their hearts when these judgments are removed. Of this kind I have witnessed numerous cases. To such God says by his prophet, Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more. Reader, are not the vows of God upon thee? Often when afflicted in thyself or family hast thou not said like Pharaoh, (ver. 17,) Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only THIS ONCE, and take away from me this death ONLY? And yet when thou hadst respite, didst thou not harden thy heart, and with returning health and strength didst thou not return unto iniquity? And art thou not still in the broad road of transgression? Be not deceived; God is not mocked; he warns thee, but he will not be mocked by thee. What thou sowest, that thou must reap. Think then what a most dreadful harvest thou mayest expect from the seeds of vice which thou hast already sown! 2. Even in the face of God's judgments the spirit of avarice will make its requisitions. Only let your flocks and your herds be stayed, says Pharaoh.

The love of gain was the ruling principle of this man's soul, and he chooses desperately to contend with the justice of his Maker, rather than give up his bosom sin! Reader, is this not thy own case? And art thou not ready, with Pharaoh, to say to the messenger of God, who rebukes thee for thy worldly mindedness, &c., Get thee gone from me. Take heed to thyself, and see my face no more. Esau and Pharaoh have both got a very bad name, and many persons who are repeating their crimes are the foremost to cover them with obloquy! When shall we learn to look at home? to take warning by the miscarriages of others, and thus shun the pit into which we have seen so many fall? If God were to give the history of every man who hardens himself from his fear, how many Pharaoh-like cases should we have on record! But a day is coming in which the secrets of every heart shall be revealed, and the history of every man's life laid open to an assembled world.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 21-29 - The plague of darkness brought upon Egypt was a dreadful plague. It wa darkness which might be felt, so thick were the fogs. It astonished an terrified. It continued three days; six nights in one; so long the mos lightsome palaces were dungeons. Now Pharaoh had time to consider, i he would have improved it. Spiritual darkness is spiritual bondage while Satan blinds men's eyes that they see not, he binds their hand and feet, that they work not for God, nor move toward heaven. They sin in darkness. It was righteous with God thus to punish. The blindness of their minds brought upon them this darkness of the air; never was min so blinded as Pharaoh's, never was air so darkened as Egypt. Let u dread the consequences of sin; if three days of darkness were s dreadful, what will everlasting darkness be? The children of Israel, a the same time, had light in their dwellings. We must not think we shar in common mercies as a matter of course, and therefore that we owe n thanks to God for them. It shows the particular favour he bears to his people. Wherever there is an Israelite indeed, though in this dar world, there is light, there is a child of light. When God made thi difference between the Israelites and the Egyptians, who would not have preferred the poor cottage of an Israelite to the fine palace of a Egyptian? There is a real difference between the house of the wicked which is under a curse, and the habitation of the just, which i blessed. Pharaoh renewed the treaty with Moses and Aaron, and consente they should take their little ones, but would have their cattle left It is common for sinners to bargain with God Almighty; thus they try to mock him, but they deceive themselves. The terms of reconciliation with God are so fixed, that though men dispute them ever so long, the cannot possibly alter them, or bring them lower. We must come to the demand of God's will; we cannot expect he should condescend to the terms our lusts would make. With ourselves and our children, we mus devote all our worldly possessions to the service of God; we know no what use he will make of any part of what we have. Pharaoh broke of the conference abruptly, and resolved to treat no more. Had he forgotten how often he had sent for Moses to ease him of his plagues and must he now be bid to come no more? Vain malice! to threaten his with death, who was armed with such power! What will not hardness of heart, and contempt of God's word and commandments, bring men to! Afte this, Moses came no more till he was sent for. When men drive God' word from them, he justly gives them up to their own delusions __________________________________________________________________
