SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:17 Así ha dicho el SEÑOR: En esto conocerás que yo soy el SEÑOR; he aquí, yo heriré con la vara que tengo en mi mano el agua que está en el río, y se volverá sangre.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 7:17 Verse 17. Behold, I will smite] Here commences the account of the TEN plagues which were inflicted on the Egyptians by Moses and Aaron, by the command and through the power of God. According to Archbishop Usher these ten plagues took place in the course of one month, and in the following order:- The first, the WATERS turned into BLOOD, took place, he supposes, the 18th day of the sixth month; ver. 20.
The second, the plague of FROGS, on the 25th day of the sixth month; chap. viii. 2.
The third, the plague of LICE, on the 27th day of the sixth month; chap. viii. 16.
The fourth, grievous SWARMS of FLIES, on the 29th day of the sixth month; chap. viii. 24.
The fifth, the grievous MURRAIN, on the 2d day of the seventh month; chap. ix. 3.

The tenth, the SLAYING the FIRST-BORN, on the 15th of Abib; chap. xii. 29. But most of these dates are destitute of proof.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-25 - Here is the first of the ten plagues, the turning of the water int blood. It was a dreadful plague. The sight of such vast rolling stream of blood could not but strike horror. Nothing is more common tha water: so wisely has Providence ordered it, and so kindly, that what is so needful and serviceable to the comfort of human life, should be cheap and almost every where to be had; but now the Egyptians mus either drink blood, or die for thirst. Egypt was a pleasant land, but the dead fish and blood now rendered it very unpleasant. It was righteous plague, and justly sent upon the Egyptians; for Nile, the river of Egypt, was their idol. That creature which we idolize, God justly takes from us, or makes bitter to us. They had stained the rive with the blood of the Hebrews' children, and now God made that rive all blood. Never any thirsted after blood, but sooner or later they ha enough of it. It was a significant plague; Egypt had great dependenc upon their river, Zec 14:18; so that in smiting the river, they wer warned of the destruction of all the produce of their country. The love of Christ to his disciples changes all their common mercies int spiritual blessings; the anger of God towards his enemies, render their most valued advantages a curse and a misery to them. Aaron is to summon the plague by smiting the river with his rod. It was done in the sight of Pharaoh and his attendants, for God's true miracles were no performed as Satan's lying wonders; truth seeks no corners. See the almighty power of God. Every creature is that to us which he makes it to be water or blood. See what changes we may meet with in the thing of this world; what is always vain, may soon become vexatious. See what mischievous work sin makes. If the things that have been our comfort prove our crosses, we must thank ourselves. It is sin that turns ou waters into blood. The plague continued seven days; and in all tha time Pharaoh's proud heart would not let him desire Moses to pray for the removal of it. Thus the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath. N wonder that God's anger is not turned away, but that his hand i stretched out still __________________________________________________________________
