little ones

Exodus 10:10
And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.









(24) Let your little ones also go with you.--Rather, your families. Pharaoh yields another point, but he will not yield all. He has not yet made up his mind really to "let the people go." He must still keep some hold on them, and the cattle will serve his purpose equally with the "little ones." If the Israelites depart without their cattle, they will be sure to return for them.

Verse 24. - Only let your flocks and your herds be stayed. The pitch darkness is more than Pharaoh can bear. On the third day of its duration probably, he sends a messenger who succeeds in finding Moses, and conducting him to the monarch's presence. He has made up his mind to yield another point - that on which he insisted so strongly at the last interview (vers. 10, 11) - he will let the Israelites go with their families - only, their flocks and herds must remain behind. This will be, he considers, a sufficient security for their return; since without cattle they would be unable to support life for many days in the wilderness. Your little ones. Rather, "your families."
