Chapter 4 gives a prophetic summary of the deliverance of Israel before the events actually happened. In Exodus 3, God dealt with two of Moses' objections: (1) Who am I? and (2) What is thy name? The Great "I AM". And here, three other objections are encountered and dealt with: (3) "They will not believe" Exodus 4:1; (4) "I am not eloquent" Exodus 4:10; and (5) "Send ... by the hand of whom thou wilt send" Exodus 4:13. Chapter 5 gives the account of the first episode in the long confrontation between God and Pharaoh over the demand that he, "Let My people go!" It reveals that the Hebrews were not yet ready for deliverance, but that they should suffer hardship before their liberty could be achieved. "The Hebrew slaves must learn that they too must suffer loss. They will have to pay the price of their liberty-to-be. It is not just a gift from God.". Chapter 6 is a renewal, not a variable account of the call in Midian. The necessity for this renewal of Moses' commission is inherent and demanded by his doubt and discouragement. He simply could not have gone on without it. Preparations and preliminaries have been completed. Here begins the deliverance of Israel from Egyptian slavery. First, there is a prophetic projection of the entire operation Exodus 7:1-7. The introductory miracle is related Exodus 7:8-13; Plague I is threatened in detail Exodus 7:14-19, and it is executed in Exodus 7:20-25. Swift judgment and punishment mark the action with Plagues II and III in Exodus 8. Pharaoh's heart progressively hardens, and God's ultimate victory through Moses and Aaron begins to appear.
