    Has anybody wondered how the Hebrews, when leaving Egypt, came to possess enough gold to cover a golden calf. The answer is in Egyptian records of the time. Seems they pillaged a city and took what they needed and wanted on the way to the desert. Pharoah's heart did not harden, he was chasing a bunch of criminals. And their "god" did not punish them ? How quaint.

    Maybe.

    All 3 are false.

    I think could be wrong but didn't they get gold and items from the Egyptians? As they were fleeing or leaving? Also they took all of their gold artifacts & jewelry I think and melted it. Now I need to read the account again. Did they pillage a city? An Egyptian account of the story? I've heard that there are not a lot of accounts from the Egyptian side because for them it was a defeat of sorts. (Maybe more research is required)

    Escaped slaves have a fundamental human right to rob their masters.
