2nd attempt to compromise: Go sacrifice but don't go far Pharaoh still wanted them within reach The temptation is to serve God but don't go over board
3rd attempt to compromise: Go sacrifice but only the men - leave your families behind Pharaoh still wanted to control their children The temptation is to leave your children out in Egypt (the world)
4th attempt to compromise: Go sacrifice, take everyone but don't take the animals Pharaoh wanted their possessions so they would come back to him The temptation is to follow God but still have control over your possessions.
