Exodus 9:28, Why wouldn't Pharaoh let them go?

Question: Why wouldnt he let them go? And why did pharoah lie in verse 28 and sin even more? Answer: I do not know that we can give a real reason for why Pharaoh would not let Israel go. It was not really a decision that was based on reason. He did not want to let them go, and he is Pharaoh, he gets to say so. Also remember that they were just asking to go into the wilderness to worship and come back, they were not asking to leave permanently yet. Pharaoh is demonstrating the hardness of heart, and stubbornness that all of us are capable of. -PJ
