Bo "Go" Shemot (Exodus) 10:1-13:16    
Published 15th Day 11th Month 5772    
HaShem commands Moshe and Aharon to "Go" to Pharaoh again and continue the process of redemption and
punishment. The plagues are such that HaShem is unleashing his wrath upon Egypt. The wicked, after years of
administering an evil slavery upon the Hebrews and after being given the opportunity to repent, are now
suffering quite badly and yet they still are stubborn when confronted with the truth. What was happening had two
fold purpose, punishment for the wicked and the opportunity for the Hebrews to see the power of HaShem. This
was important for those who were being redeemed, in instilling faith and trust after such assimilation with a
barbaric regime. This, as well as knowing who and where HaShem is and was. HaShem expresses his
contempt for Pharaoh

  • Ex 10:2 and so that you may relate in the ears of your son and your son's son that I made a mockery of
    Egypt and My signs that I placed among them----that you know that I am HaShem

It is hardly imaginable that they continue when such affliction was upon them, but they did. This Parshah
describes the 8th, 9th and 10th plagues, as well as the institution of the fixed times and biblical calendar. The
locusts were brought with an east wind, and dispersed with a west wind (10:13-19).

  • Ex 10:13 So Moshe stretched out his rod over the land of Mizrayim, and the Lord brought an east wind
    upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts
    14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Mizrayim: very grievous they were; before them there were
    no such locusts as they, neither after them shall there be such 15 For they covered the surface of the
    whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat very plant of the land, and all the fruit of the
    trees which the hail had left: and there remained no green thing in the trees, or in the plants of the field,
    through all the land of Mizrayim

The years of building in Egypt and had been built up by the forced labour of the Hebrews, was now being
destroyed by HaShem. So divine retribution was upon the folly of the wicked. Pharaoh once again lied about
repenting and letting the people go (10:20). An intense darkness was next. Darkness can also be symbolic of
rejection of the truth. It requires a quite strong step forward to get into the light. Most people take the most
definite step of staying in the darkness because it provides materialist lifestyles and offers power and control
which suits Nazis and anti semitics

  • Ex 10:21 Then the lord said to Moses "Hold out your arm toward the sky that there may be darkness
    upon the land of Egypt, a darkness that can be touched 22 Moses held out his arm toward the sky and
    thick darkness descended upon all the land of Egypt for three days

The importance of doing as HaShem says to do is paramount...these great wonders and signs were also to
help instill faith and trust in the people.

  • Ex 10:23 People could not see one another, and for three days no one could get up from where he was;
    but all the Israelites enjoyed light in their dwellings

Pharaoh was about to let them go when Moshe indicated that it would be on HaShem's terms, and so Pharaoh
did not release them (10:24-29). Although there was much pain and pestilence among the Egyptians the
process that was being witnessed by all peoples put Moshe in a very good light. Is it possible to imagine how
individuals saw the greatness of HaShem and despaired at their pagan leader's evil and crass thinking and
decisions when the truth and great wonders was presented before them. The conduct of the Hebrews is
serving HaShem was noticed. When the people were vulnerable the Hebrews did not plunder either from them
or their persons

  • Ex 11:3 And the lord gave the people favour in the sight of Mizrayim; moreover the man Moshe was very
    great in the land of Mizrayim, in the sight of Par'o's servants, and in the sight of the people

Biblical Fixed Times (Moedim) and Calendar....The final plague and event that miraculously caused Pharaoh
and his followers to assist the Hebrews in leaving their country, was the slaying of the first born (11:4-5). For
those who turned to HaShem, the absolute importance of doing exactly as HaShem states is what will save the
people from the destroyer. HaShem institutes the Biblical calendar with Moshe. As a renewal occured after the
great flood of Noach, now a renewal is commanded with Moshe and Aaron. This is the only point where in
scripture the first month is anointed as a Mitzvah (command) and each month we bring ourselves to the new
moon and begiining or renewal of another month. The months and days are numbered

  • Ex 12:2 This month shall be to you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you

It was the springtime (Aviv). Clear and detailed instructions (12:7-10) were given to the people what to wear, eat
and how to prepare the sacrifice lamb at the times

  • Ex 10:1 And the Lord said to Moshe, Go into Par'o: for I have
    hardened his heart; and the heart of his servants, that I might
    show these My signs before him
sheep , or from the goats: 6 and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month: and
the whole assembly of the congregation of Yisra'el shall kill it towards evening

Pesach: The first of the holy days is now named...Pesach. People were told what to wear and in
haste, and the supper commemorating the Exodus is on the 15th Erev (evening)

  • 12:7 “Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two door posts and the lintel
    of the houses in which they eat it. 8 They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire;
    with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in
    water, but roasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts.11 And thus shall you eat it; with
    your loins girded, your shoes at your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in
    haste; it is the lords Passover

HaShem is God of nature, and so we wonder why he tells them what he does at this time. The
plague that passed over the Hebrews homes that they were commanded too stay in that night, was
not a massacre by troops, and so what was the method of the destroyer that night. Leaven was a
big part of HaShem's instructions, and to stay indoors. It likewise took seven days for the Exodus to
reach the Sea of reeds and the crossing. This command is from the 14th to the 21st. The Exodus
began the 15th and the festival of Unleavened bread (matzot)

  • 12:15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; on the very first day you shall remove
    leaven from your houses, for whosoever eats leavened bread from the first day to the
    seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel

Idolatry is the first of the commandments that is transgression against G-d HaShem and the

  • 12:29 In the middle of the night the Lord struck down all the first-born in the land of Egypt,
    from the first-born of Pharaoh who sat on the throne to the first-born of the captive who was
    in the dungeon, and all the first-born of the cattle

The Exodus comprised of not just Hebrews but other peoples to. Those in Egypt who were inspired
by HaShem and his servant Moshe, however Satan was ever present and it was a difficult time
ahead for Moshe and HaShem

  • 12:37 And the children of Yisra'el journeyed from Ra'meses to Sukkot, about six hundred
    thousand men on foot, besides children 38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them;
    and flocks, and herds, very much cattle

Anyone can turn to HaShem and uphold his written Torah, and here is the command to keep for
those who want to be part of biblical Israel

  • 12:43 And the Lord said to Moshe and Aharon, This is the ordinance of the passover
    (Pesach): no stranger shall eat of it: but every man's servant that is bought for money, when
    thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.

Unity in HaShem is everything, and there is but one Torah for all mankind

  • 12:47 All the congregation of Yisra'el shall keep it

Biblical Israel is written Torah and the stranger needs to be circumcised also...meaning he needs
to be keeping the Torah and showing by continued observance that they are repentant

  • 12:49 One Torah shall be to him that is home born, and to the stranger who sojourns
    among you

HaShem commands Moshe to sanctify the first born of Hebrews and animals. Esau and Jacob is
point at hand when Jacob, the youngest or second born twin received the blessing. Being born and
accepting the Torah is down to an individual commitment and many have fallen from the House of
Israel. Many more gentiles through the New Covenant have been grafted into the Torah by their
circumcision of the heart...their walk before the Almighty

  • 13:1 then the Lord spoke with Moses, saying 2 Consecrate before Me every first-born, the
    first of every Israelite child, both man and beast, is mine

HaShem reiterates his promise of land to the people (13:5) of the Abrahamic covenant. He also
emphasises the command to eat unleavened bread for seven days beginning on the 14th day, in
relation to the redemption of the people. HaShem as deity over all things and being perfect does
not forget. HaShem because of his love for creation, assists his people in learning his ways by
compounding his awesome teachings

  • 13:8 And thou shalt relate to thy son on that day, saying, "This is done because of that which
    the Lord did to me when I came out of Mizrayim

The importance of having our every action determined by our hearts in seeking the Torah by daily
study and application. World peace will be achieved when everyone will be doing good and
spending time in the ways of the creation and talking about them when they meet

  • 13:9 And it shall be a sign for thee upon thy hand, and for a memorial between thy eyes, that
    the Lord's Torah may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand did the Lord bring thee out of

Pesach: on the Biblical Hebrew lunar calendar is the 14th-21st of the first month as above. The
15th is the second lunar sabbath of the month, which also begins the Moed or Fixed time of
keeping Torah (Matzot), Pesach. Complete Pesach is 8 days long from the 14th to the 22nd of the
first month.
  • 13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year

  • Ex 13:16 And so it shall be as a sign upon your hand and as a symbol on your forehead that
    with a mighty hand the lord freed us from Egypt
