Exodus 9:8-11:10 – In the final five plagues, God humbles a man who considers himself a god and a people who thought themselves untouchable. God opposes the proud and will use any means necessary to humble us.
- #6. Boils (9:8-12) – Imhotep, the god of healing, could not cure the Egyptians of this intense sickness.
- #7. Hail (9:13-35) – The goddess of weather, Tefenet, could not create or thwart a storm like the one targeting Egyptians.
- #8. Locusts (10:1-20) – Locusts consumed all the vegetation, unable to be protected by Min, the god of the crops.
- #9. Darkness (10:21-29) – Amon-Re, the god of the sun, or his claimed son, Pharaoh, could not illuminate Egypt when the LORD turned out the lights.
- #10. Passover (11:1-10) – Pharaoh, the firstborn of Egypt’s nobility, was rendered helpless to oppose God or protect his people.
- God used an unrepentant man as an invitation for others to believe (9:16).
