Bible Commentary for Exodus 9:8

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 9:8


9:6 All the cattle died - All that were in the field. The creature is made subject to vanity by the sin of man, being liable, according to its capacity, both to serve his wickedness, and to share in his punishment. The Egyptians worshipped their cattle; it was among them that the Israelites learned to make a god of a calf; in that therefore this plague meets with them. But not one of the cattle of the Israelites died - Doth God take care for oxen? Yes, he doth, his providence extends itself to the meanest of his creatures.

9:9 A boil breaking forth with blains - A burning scab, which quickly raised blisters and blains.

9:10 Ashes of the furnace - Sometimes God shews men their sin in their punishment: they had oppressed Israel in the furnaces, and now the ashes of the furnace are made as much a terror to them as ever their task - masters had been to the Israelites. This is afterwards called the botch of Egypt, #Deu 28:27|, as if it were some new disease, never heard of before, and known ever after by that name.
