Had a great time at camp this past week! Perhaps a post on that later. For now, here are some notes from my Bible reading this morning.
In recording the events of Passover night, Exodus 12:35-36 says, “And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.”
Twice the Israelites were instructed to borrow silver and gold and raiment from their Egyptian neighbors when the Lord freed them from Egypt’s bondage (Exodus 3:22; 11:2). According to the passage above, that’s exactly what they did on the night of the Exodus.
I’m certain I’m not the only one who finds the wording a bit odd.
