CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
8:19 This is the finger of God - The power of God. The devil's agents, when God permitted them, could do great things; but when he laid an embargo upon them, they could do nothing. The magicians inability in this instance shewed whence they had their ability in the former instances, and that they had no power against Moses but what was given them from above. But Pharaoh's heart was hardened - By himself and the devil.
But if I am casting out demons by the power of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you.
Even then Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you. So I will bring down my fist on Egypt. Then I will rescue my forces--my people, the Israelites--from the land of Egypt with great acts of judgment.
When I raise my powerful hand and bring out the Israelites, the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD."
Pharaoh's heart, however, remained hard. He still refused to listen, just as the LORD had predicted.
Pharaoh's officials now came to Pharaoh and appealed to him. "How long will you let this man hold us hostage? Let the men go to worship the LORD their God! Don't you realize that Egypt lies in ruins?"
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers--the moon and the stars you set in place--
