let them go; being forced to it by the mighty hand of God upon
him; and it is by some rendered, "because of a strong hand"
F19; so Jarchi; for this is not to be

and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his
not only be willing that they should go, but be urgent upon them
to be gone, ( Exodus 12:33
dyb) "propter manum validam"; so some in Drusius.
