Book and passage, please.

If that were literally so then God is the cause of Pharaoh's perversity... the author of evil... which is a contradiction. What He did was to allow Pharaoh's perversity to prevail by not thwarting it with circumstances beyond Pharaoh's control. You get the picture?

And why doesn't it say that? Why does it say exactly the opposite? Was it opposite day when Moses wrote that?

(btw, I don't think I disagree with you, but you were itching to have a discussion the other day).
