Beshalach: Chapter 2

Three deaths


We hear that at the time of the first Passover, there were three revengeful deaths performed against Egypt: the one that related to the deaths of the firstborn, the one that God killed at midnight, and the one when Pharaoh saw the death in his own house. Rabbi Shimon says that Pharaoh himself killed all the ministers and advisers who counseled him to refuse to send out the children of Yisrael. Then he called Moses and Aaron and told them to leave, "and bless me also." Then he accompanied them out of the country.
