Yahweh said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh, for I have made his heart and the hearts of his servants unyielding, that I may show these my signs in their midst, Bible see other translations

“unyielding.” The Hebrew word is kabad (#03513 כָּבַד), meaning unyielding, hard, insensitive, stubborn, unresponsive, dull. Pharaoh’s heart was hard and unresponsive to God’s request, insensitive to both the Israelites and Egyptians, and dull such that it could not see where his refusal of God’s request would lead. See commentary on Exodus 4:21.
