Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Exodus 10



Verses 1-20

The Eighth Plague (Locusts) - Exodus 10:1-20 tells us about the eighth plague in which swarms of locusts filled the land of Egypt.

Verses 21-29

The Ninth Plague (Darkness) - Exodus 10:21-29 tells us about the ninth plague in which darkness filled the land of Egypt. In Egyptian mythology, Re was their sun god. 43] It is possible that the ninth plague was directed against this god. Thus, the description of "thick darkness over the land of Egypt" serves as a declaration of the mighty power of the God of Israel over the Egyptian god Re.
