From Exodus 7: My imagination takes me to Pharaoh's throne-room where his courtiers are pacing around and muttering, ""That Moses needs to go down! Those Hebrews need to be punished again!"" Only a small percentage of the Egyptian population grumbled against Moses; most of them were friendly with their Hebrew counterparts, and willingly shared their silver and gold with them as parting gifts. (My goodness, prosperity in a time when the world is falling apart ? imagine that!) Shows how out-of-touch with the grassroots that politicians can be. Then there's this ""Tweet"" that Moses sends to Pharaoh as a parting shot: ""All these your servants will come down to me and bow themselves before me, saying 'Go out, you and all the people who follow you, ' and after that, I will go out."" And he went out from Pharaoh in hot anger"" (Exodus 11:8). Sounds familiar? I guess people haven't changed that much in 5,000 years.
