Exodus 8:23

Hebrew, peduth, translated, "reemption.";

(Psa 111:9); (Psa 130:7). It is, in type, (Gal 6:14).

Exodus 8:25

exo 8:25

The compromises proposed by Pharaoh are those urged upon Christians today. The first says in effect: "Be a Christian if you will, but not a 'narrow' one -- stay in Egypt." Invariably it ends in world-conformity, world-pleasing, and seeking the world's money for God (Psa 50:9-17) (Cf); (Co2 6:14-18); (Gal 1:4).

Exodus 8:28

exo 8:28

very far

The second compromise is a modification merely of the first. "Do not be too unwordly." Compare (Sa1 15:3); (Sa1 15:9); (Sa1 15:13-15); (Sa1 15:19-23).
