The Divine Hardening of the Human Heart

Three times in the first chapter of Romans the Lord is said to "give them over ...", those who "suppress the truth". (vv. 24, 26, 28) The same truth is expressed differently in the book of Exodus:

Exo 4.21
The Lord said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your power; but I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.”

This article details the Lord's sovereign working in the heart of man and establishes the truth of:

Exo 33.18-19
Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” And He said, “I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the Lord before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.
