Everyone

This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.
- 1 Timothy 2:3-6

He died for everyone.

There is unfortunately a difference between the preferred will and the acted on will of God. God wanted Pharaoh to be saved; God hardened Pharaoh's heart so that he couldn't turn away from persecuting the Jews. See what I mean?

I know Mike. Pharoah also hardened his own heart. He could have changed what he was doing. God isn't a puppet master.
And did God just do it arbitrarily, or did he extend a helping hand to someone who was so filled with his own selfish pride that God knew that this would harden Pharoah's heart.
I kind of take the latter view.
