That seems to be the moral message of this entire chapter. Granted, I'm reading from the Brick Testimate
, but the pattern is distinct. Every chapter begins with someone complaining about not having enough water or food. Then God talks to Moses. Sometimes Moses actually has to plead
with God for mercy (whose idea was it to bring the Iseralites into the desert, again????). Then God kills like thousands of people. When the people are saved from God's wrath, they're saved by Moses. A human!
Not to mention, during the plagues
, many passages mention how "Yawheh made the Pharoh stubborn." Whose fucking side is this guy on?
