Question
On Yoma 67b, there is a mention of angels (Uzza and Azael) who sinned with the daughters of man. I thought angels did not have free will. If they do not have free will, how can the go against Hashem's wishes by sinning?

Question
"And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt." (Shemot 7:3). I read the verse tonight and suddenly a question come to mind: If Hashem hardened Pharaoh's mind, does he always hardened the minds of other wicked people who are like Pharaoh?

Is there a belief in predestination in Judaism, i.e. was Joseph predestined to go Egypt? A related question would then be did God arrange all the events of Joseph’s life or did God just take advantage of events that took place?

Question
If we believe that God runs the world and that He knows everything, then how is it possible that I have the bechira (free will) to choose "good" or "bad", "right" or "wrong"? He already knows what I will choose, and that seems like it's predetermined - right? Thanks.
