CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
6:1 With a strong hand - That is, being forced to it by a strong hand, he shall let them go.
"The God of this nation of Israel chose our ancestors and made them multiply and grow strong during their stay in Egypt. Then with a powerful arm he led them out of their slavery.
"But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand forces him.
So I will raise my hand and strike the Egyptians, performing all kinds of miracles among them. Then at last he will let you go.
Even then Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you. So I will bring down my fist on Egypt. Then I will rescue my forces--my people, the Israelites--from the land of Egypt with great acts of judgment.
When I raise my powerful hand and bring out the Israelites, the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD."
Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will strike Pharaoh and the land of Egypt with one more blow. After that, Pharaoh will let you leave this country. In fact, he will be so eager to get rid of you that he will force you all to leave.
Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron during the night. "Get out!" he ordered. "Leave my people--and take the rest of the Israelites with you! Go and worship the LORD as you have requested.
