Pharaoh hastened to call to Moses and to Aaron, and he said, “I have offended before the LORD your God and before you. And now, forgive, pray, my offense, just this time, and entreat the LORD your God…When Pharaoh confesses his sin, first he mentions God and then Moses and Aaron. When asking for forgiveness, first he turns to Moses and Aaron and then to God. Kli Yakar suggests that God forgives more readily than humans, and so Pharaoh opens with the more difficult request: forgiveness from Moses and Aaron. Similarly, it is harder for us to recognize a sin against God than a sin against other people and perhaps here too Pharaoh opens with that which is more difficult.
