And the Lord said unto Moses, rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh
Who it seems used to rise early in the morning, and so was a fit time to meet with him, and converse with him; it might be one of the mornings in which he used to go to the water early, though not mentioned, unless that was every morning: and say unto him, thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, let my people
go, that they may serve me;
thus had he line upon line, and precept upon precept, so that he was the more inexcusable, see ( Exodus 9:1 ) .
