Joseph and his brothers died, and the children of Israel multiplied in the land of Egypt. They held important positions and played an important role economic life of the country. It is not surprising that they stirred the jealousy of the native Egyptians who began to dislike the "foreigners."
Pharaoh died, too, and a new king ascended the throne. He had no sympathy or love for the children of Israel, and chose to forget all that Joseph had done for Egypt. He decided to act against the growing influence and number of the children of Israel. His council advised him to enslave and oppress these people before they grew too powerful. Pharaoh limited the personal freedom of the Hebrews, put heavy taxes on them, and recruited their men into forced labor battalions under the supervision of harsh taskmasters.
But the children of Israel increased and multiplied. When Pharaoh saw that forcing the Hebrews to do hard work failed in suppressing their rapidly growing numbers, he decreed that all newly born male children of the Hebrews be thrown into the Nile River. Only daughters should be permitted to live. Pharaoh hoped to end the numerical increase of the Hebrew population, and at the same time to eliminate a danger which, threatened his own life in the person of a leader to be born to the children of Israel.
The children of Israel could no longer endure their terrible suffering and persecution at the hands of their cruel overlords. Their cries for help, their supplications and prayers, coming from the very bottom of their hearts, constantly went up to the heavens. God honored His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and started the process to deliver His people from bondage through the person of Moses.

The plagues of Egypt were sent by God to convince Pharaoh to free the Israelite slaves from the bondage and oppression they had endured in Egypt for over 400 years.
Moses & Aaron were selected by God to deliver the message to Pharaoh. Moses was 80 years old, and his brother Aaron 83, when they entered the palace of Pharaoh. Fearlessly, they went past the heavy guard of men and wild animals that surrounded his inner chambers, and which permitted no unbidden visitor to enter. Nobody had ever been able to see the King of Egypt in person, and speak to him, except his astrologers and counsellors. Astonished and frightened by their sudden appearance, Pharaoh asked the 2 brothers what they wanted.
The message sounded like a command: "Thus has the Lord God of Israel, `Let My people go, that they may feast to Me in the desert.' " Pharaoh responded by saying, “Who is the Lord that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2). He further accused Moses &Aaron of a conspiracy against the government, and of interference with the work of the Hebrew slaves
On the same day, Pharaoh ordered his supervisors to increase the demands on the children of Israel and to make their burden still heavier. If they had time to think of liberty and worship of God and ideas, quite unbecoming of slaves, then they must be getting too much leisure, Pharaoh thought. The slaves now had not only to produce the same amount of labor, but in addition, they had to procure their own raw materials for the bricks. The Hebrews were physically unable to cope with such an impossible task, and they suffered even more than before.
In desperation, the children of Israel bitterly reproached Moses & Aaron for making their fate even worse, instead of helping them. Deeply hurt and disappointed, Moses prayed to God. God consoled him and assured him that his mission eventually would be successful, but not before Pharaoh and all of Egypt would be smitten by terrible plagues, to be adequately punished for oppressing the children of Israel.
