The final plague, the death of the firstborn, causes the Pharaoh to finally let the Israelites go.

Exodus 11 is a chapter that speaks to the power of God and His ability to protect His people. In this chapter, God instructs Moses to warn Pharaoh that He will bring one more plague upon Egypt before the Israelites are released. This plague will be the death of the firstborn of every Egyptian family. God promises to protect the Israelites from this plague by having them mark their doorposts with the blood of a lamb. This is a powerful demonstration of God's protection and mercy. The Israelites are instructed to eat the lamb with unleavened bread and bitter herbs, and to do so with their sandals on and their staffs in their hands. This is a reminder of their readiness to leave Egypt and their dependence on God for their deliverance. The chapter ends with Pharaoh's refusal to let the Israelites go, despite the warnings of Moses. This serves as a reminder of God's power and sovereignty. He is in control and will ultimately bring about His will. Exodus 11 is a powerful reminder of God's protection and mercy, and of His ultimate sovereignty.
