Three more of the plagues of Egypt are related in
this chapter, I. That of the frogs, which is, 1. Threatened,
ver. 1-4. 2. Inflicted,
ver. 5, 6. 3. Mimicked by
the magicians, ver. 7. 4.
Removed, at the humble request of Pharaoh (ver. 8-14), who yet hardens his heart, and,
notwithstanding his promise while the plague was upon him
(ver. 8), refuses to let
Israel go, ver. 15. II. The
plague of lice (ver. 16,
17), by which, 1. The magicians were baffled (ver. 18, 19), and yet, 2. Pharaoh
was hardened, ver. 19. III.
That of flies. 1. Pharaoh is warned of it before (ver. 20, 21), and told that the
land of Goshen should be exempt from this plague, ver. 22, 23. 2. The plague is
brought, ver. 24. 3. Pharaoh
treats with Moses about the release of Israel, and humbles himself,
ver. 25-29. 4. The plague
is thereupon removed (ver.
31), and Pharaoh's heart hardened, ver. 32.
