The story is more bizarre

The "Passover" story is even more bizarre when you read that Pharaoh's will was removed.  See verse 3 below, "I will harden Pharaoh's heart". After every plague there is a reference back to this promise.  The Lord obviously had a mean streak in this legend and fully intended to kill thousands of innocents from the start  Poor Pharaoh was caught in a catch 22. He was not even able to give Moses a favorable ruling.  The Lord even killed other slaves in this story, plus the Pharaoh's innocent subjects.

Exodus 7

1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. 2 You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country. 3 But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and though I multiply my signs and wonders in Egypt, 4 he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites. 5 And the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it.”
