    1 Frogs are sent. 8 Pharaoh sues to Moses, who by prayer removes them away. 16 The dust is turned into lice, which the magicians could not do. 20 The plague of flies. 25 Pharaoh inclines to let the people go, but yet is hardened. VERSE 1 - Go. * Jer 1:17-19; 15:19-21 Eze 2:6,7 - Let my. See on ch. * Ex 3:12,18; 5:1; 7:16 VERSE 2 - refuse. See on ch. * Ex 7:14; 9:2 - frogs. The Hebrew {tzephardłim} is evidently the same with the Arabic {zafda,} Chaldaic {oordeânaya,} and Syriac {oordeai,} all of which denote frogs, as almost all interpreters, both ancient and modern, agree to render it; Bochart conceives, from {tzifa,} a bank, and {radâ,} mud, because of delighting in muddy and marshy places. * Ps 78:45; 105:30 Re 16:13,14 VERSE 3 - kneading troughs. or, dough. * Ex 12:34 VERSE 4 * Ps 107:40 Isa 19:11,22; 23:9 Da 4:37 Ac 12:22,23 VERSE 5 * Ex 7:19 VERSE 6 - and the frogs. Whether the frog among the Egyptians was an object of reverence or abhorrence is uncertain. It might have been both at the same time, as many objects are known to have been among particular nations; for proof of which see the very learned Jacob Bryant, on the Plagues of Egypt, pp. 31-34. * Le 11:12 Ps 78:45; 105:30 Re 16:13 VERSE 7 * Ex 7:11,22 De 13:1-3 Mt 24:24 2Th 2:9-11 2Ti 3:8 Re 13:14 VERSE 8 - Intreat. * Ex 5:2; 9:28; 10:17 Nu 21:7 1Sa 12:19 1Ki 13:6 Ac 8:24 - and I will. * :25-28; 10:8-11,24-27; 12:31,32; 14:5 Ps 66:3 *marg: * Ps 78:34-36 Jer 34:8-16 VERSE 9 - Glory over me. or, Have this honor over me. * Jud 7:2 1Ki 18:25 Isa 10:15 - when. or, against when. to destroy. Heb. to cut of. * :13 VERSE 10 - To-morrow. or, against to-morrow. * Pr 27:1 Jas 4:14 - there is none. * Ex 9:14,29; 15:11 De 32:31; 33:26 2Sa 7:22 1Ch 17:20 Ps 9:16 * Ps 83:18; 86:8; 89:6-8 Isa 40:25; 46:9 Jer 10:6,7 VERSE 11 * :3,9 VERSE 12 - See on ver. * :8,30; 9:33; 10:18; 32:11 1Sa 12:23 Eze 36:37 Jas 16 5:16-18 VERSE 13 * De 34:10-12 VERSE 14 - and the. * :24; 7:21 Isa 34:2 Eze 39:11 Joe 2:20 VERSE 15 - saw. * Ex 14:5 Ec 8:11 Isa 26:10 Jer 34:7-11 Ho 6:4 - he hardened. See on ch. * Ex 4:21; 7:4,13,14 Pr 29:1 Zec 7:11,12 Heb 3:8,15 Re 16:9 VERSE 16 - Stretch. * :5,17 - lice. The word {kinnim} is rendered by the LXX. [ ,] or [ ,] and by the Vulgate {sciniphes,} Gnats; and Mr. Harmer supposes he has found out the true meaning in the word {tarrentes,} a species of worm. Bochart, however, seems to have proved that lice, and not gnats, are meant; because, 1. they sprang from the dust, and not from the waters; 2. they were on both man and beast, which cannot be said of gnats; 3. their name is derived from {koon,} to make firm, fix, establish, which cannot agree with gnats, flies, etc., which are ever changing place, and almost constantly on the wing; 4. the term {kinnah} is used by the Talmudists to express the louse. This insect must have been a very dreadful and afflicting plague to the Egyptians, and especially to the priests, who were obliged to shave all their hair off, and to wear a single linen tunic, to prevent vermin harboring about them. VERSE 17 - lice in man. * Ps 105:31 Isa 23:9 Ac 12:23 VERSE 18 - the magicians. * Ex 7:11 - they could. * Ex 9:11 Ge 41:8 Isa 19:12; 47:12,13 Da 2:10,11; 4:7; 5:8 Lu 10:18 * 2Ti 3:8,9 VERSE 19 - This is. * 1Sa 6:3,9 Ps 8:3 Da 2:10,11,19 Mt 12:28 Lu 11:20 Joh 11:47 * Ac 4:16 - and Pharaoh's. See on ver. * :15 VERSE 20 - lo. * Ex 7:15 - Let my. * :1 VERSE 21 - swarms. or, a mixture of noisome beasts, etc. The word {arov} is rendered [ ,] the dog-fly, by the LXX. (who are followed by the learned Bochart,) which must have been particularly hateful to the Egyptians, because they held dogs in the highest veneration, under which form they worshipped Anubis. * Ps 78:45; 105:31 Isa 7:18 VERSE 22 - sever. * Ex 9:4,6,26; 10:23; 11:6,7; 12:13 Mal 3:18 - know. See on ver. * :10; 7:17 Eze 30:19 - midst. * Ps 74:12; 110:2 VERSE 23 - a division. Heb. a redemption. * Ex 33:16 Le 20:24 Nu 23:9 De 33:28 Ps 111:9; 130:7 Isa 50:2 - to-morrow. or, by to-morrow. * :10 VERSE 24 - there. * :21 Ps 78:45; 105:31 - the land. How intolerable a plague of flies can prove, is evident from the fact that whole districts have been laid waste by them. The inhabitants have been forced to quit their cities, not being able to stand against the flies and gnats with which they were pestered. Hence different people had deities whose office it was to defend them against flies. Among these may be reckoned Baalzebub, the fly-god of Ekron; Hercules, {muscarum abactor,} Hercules the expeller of flies; and hence Jupiter had the titles of [ ,] because he was supposed to expel flies, and especially clear his temples of these insects. See Bryant. - See on ver. * :14 - corrupted. or destroyed.
