Before Hashem begins the affliction of the Eser Makkot, the Ten Plagues, upon Egypt, Hashem informs Moshe that Hashem will "harden Paro's heart." Hashem tells Moshe that Paro will refuse to release Bnei Yisrael despite the horrific plagues placed upon his land and his people. וַאֲנִי אַקְשֶׁה, אֶת-לֵב פַּרְעֹה; וְהִרְבֵּיתִי אֶת-אֹתֹתַי וְאֶת-מוֹפְתַי, בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. Chazal r
