EGYPT'S TEN PLAGUES

EGYPT'S TEN PLAGUES



The Pharaoh in the time of Moses was a hard, stubborn and ruthless man. 
His heart was very hard and the Lord hardened his heart even more so. 
He would not initially allow the Hebrews to leave Egypt but after ten horrific plagues, the Pharaoh forced the Hebrews to flee and they took tons of gold, silver, precious stones, flocks, herds and clothing as payment for many years of unpaid slavery. 
They were not slaves when they first went into Egypt but after Joseph died and a new Pharaoh arose, the Hebrews were then forced to be slaves. 
In spite of their slavery the Hebrews had so many children, at one point in time the Hebrews outnumbered the Egyptians. 
The ten plagues were divine judgement on a very idolatrous nation. 
After the plagues Egypt had nothing left; no fresh water, no livestock, no fruit, no vegetables, no grains, no food, no grass, no trees, no economy, no clothing, no jewellery, just sickness, death and piles of dead rotting, stinking frogs, fish and hoards of biting insects.
