It took the vengeance of God for Moses to enforce the release of Israel from slavery in Egypt and those resisting Moses did not go unpunished.  Here’s what the Lord told Moses:

Exodus 3:19-20 (NLT2) “But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand forces him. 20 So I will raise my hand and strike the Egyptians, performing all kinds of miracles among them. Then at last he will let you go. 

Moses needed knowledge of God’s vengeance to take his place of authority and go before Pharaoh and fulfill God’s mandate. Moses didn’t go before Pharaoh or Egypt’s court for permission.  Moses invoked the justice system of God, the Supreme Court of the universe, and because Pharaoh resisted, the judgment of God came on Egypt.

Psalm 75:7 (AMP) But God is the Judge! He puts down one and lifts up another.  

Isaiah 33:22 (KJV) For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.
