Summary of passage: The Pharaoh died and the Israelites continued to suffer under oppression. God heard their cries and was concerned.
10a) By preparing Moses and by bringing the Israelites to a point of total dependence on God–to the point of hardship beyond bearing because in the desert they will have to have total faith in God to survive.
b) Cried out to God
11a) Heard, remembered, looked, concerned
b) They tell us just what the verbs mean: That God heard his people, remembered them, looked on the, and was concerned. His people are important to Him.
c) Personal Question. My answer: Yes
Conclusions: Again, thought the last three days should have been combined into one. I’m not a fan of “yes” or “no” personal questions. I just don’t get a lot out of those. Thought Question 9d and 10a should have been together as both have the same answer of relying totally on God.
End Notes: We must remember God remembered his people and turned his attention to His people because of the covenant with Abraham and not because of any other reason (like suffering or the people deserved it). If it not for Abraham, God would probably have let the people suffer in Egypt. But because of God’s goodness and love and because he chose Israel, He rescued them.
