The LORD said to Moses, “See, I have set you as a god to Pharaoh….God promises Moshe that in the eyes of Pharaoh, he will become a god. This is a polemic against the uncouth character of Pharaoh and a warning to the Jewish people. For some people, if a man has power and can do a few magic tricks, they treat him like a god but this is a mistake. Moses is true and his Torah is true. The Jewish people revere Moshe for the Torah he taught us and not for the plagues he produced.
