Pharaohs proud heart

( 11 ) Ge 45:26 And told him, saying , Joseph is yet alive , and he is governor over all the land of Egypt . And Jacob's heart "leb" fainted , for he believed them not. {Jacob's: Heb. his}

.. land of Egypt And Jacob's heart, mind ..

( 12 ) Ge 50:21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones . And he comforted them, and spake kindly "leb" unto them. {kindly...: Heb. to their hearts}

.. he comforted them, and spake heart, mind ..

( 13 ) Ex 4:14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses , and he said , Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother ? I know that he can speak well . And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart "leb".

.. thee, he will be glad in his heart, mind ..

( 14 ) Ex 4:21 And the LORD said unto Moses , When thou goest to return into Egypt , see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh , which I have put in thine hand : but I will harden his heart "leb", that he shall not let the people go .

.. hand but I will harden his heart, mind .. What happens if one hardens their heart ? And the heart grows cold and stoney and hard ? PRIDE !!!

Notice if sinning is defined as missing a target ( a person) and trusting is defined as clinging to a target ( a person) THAN hardening one's heart is defined as a relationship of one person becoming distant to the other person.

Notice sin in the Ancient Hebrew scripture is not a trangression of some torah rule, though this is implied... Sinning is all about missing a person's hand...(Jesus) Trusting is all about holding a person's hand..(Jesus) Hardening the heart is about resisting to reach for Jesus' hand.

Why does the Bible say GOD hardens Pharoah's heart ?

This is to show the child parent relationship with it's stronger authority. Who is the child here ? Pharoah. Who is the parent ? GOD is, the stronger authority. When a child refuses to hold the hand of it's parent, who's to blame ? The child ? yes, but how do you record the statement ?

My child's heart is hardened against me, the parent ? This statement shows the child as the stronger authority .... The parent hardens the heart of the child. This statement shows the strong authority, and the child who is challenging the strong authority with rebellion. We are used to a different style of writing sentences, where the objective noun and subject noun are written as cause and effect. In Hebrew, nouns are not written this way. The nouns are really completed actions. In Hebrew nouns are really verbs.

So when it says "God hardened Pharoah's heart" in Hebrew the actions are "The strong shepherd of authority completed the relationship of Pharoah, who wanted his home authority all to himself".

( 15 ) Ex 7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart "leb", and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt .

.. And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, mind ..

( 16 ) Ex 7:13 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart "leb", that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said .

.. And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, mind ..

( 17 ) Ex 7:14 And the LORD said unto Moses , Pharaoh's heart "leb" is hardened , he refuseth to let the people go .

.. unto Moses Pharaoh's heart, mind ..

( 18 ) Ex 7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments : and Pharaoh's heart "leb" was hardened , neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said .

.. enchantments and Pharaoh's heart, mind ..

( 19 ) Ex 7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house , neither did he set his heart "leb" to this also.

.. house neither did he set his heart, mind ..

( 20 ) Ex 8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite , he hardened his heart "leb", and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said .

.. was respite he hardened his heart, mind .. Notice the sentence clearly is written differently as we understand.. Pharoah hardened his own heart....
