When G-d made His covenant with Abraham, He decreed: “Your children will be enslaved and oppressed for 400 years. But the nation that enslaves them, I will punish.”

How could G-d punish the Egyptians for something He decreed upon them to do? The answer can be found in Maimonides’ laws of prophecy.
