“Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better!” Thus spoke Pharaoh to Moses. “I Can Do Anything Better Than You!” Thus spoke Pharaoh to the G-d of the Hebrews. Moses held the staff of HaShem. Pharaoh had necromancers and soothsayers, magicians, wizards and spell-for-hire sorcerers. But you don’t need sleight-of-hand when G-d’s will runs through your veins.
