Using Moses and Pharaoh as examples, Paul demonstrates that God is not unjust in showing mercy or hardening. God reserves the right to extend mercy or withhold it as it pleases him (v18). To Moses, God shows mercy, but he hardens Pharaoh. God's showing mercy is not according to human will or effort, but according to his own good pleasure. Likewise, the goal in hardening Pharaoh is for the proclamation of his name, to demonstrate his magnificence. In either hardening or showing mercy, God's goal is the exaltation of his name, and he is not unjust to uphold his name in all the earth. **DISCLAIMER: this is my first shared arc.
