February 4th, Exodus 7-9: The LORD brings plagues upon Egypt

This section details the first seven plagues. They were as follows:

1. Blood
2. Frogs
3. Gnats
4. Wild Beasts
5. Pestilence
6. Boils
7. Hail

After the LORD lifts each plague, we find the phrase “Pharaoh’s heart was hard and he would not listen.”

Moses asked Pharaoh for a three day’s journey to make sacrifices to the LORD, because the Egyptians found those sacrifices detestable and would stone the Hebrews if they did so. But the Pharaoh would not allow the Hebrews to make such a journey.

Pharaoh would not let the LORD’s people go.

Question: Have you ever had someone make promises to you, only to keep breaking them? Then they ask for just one more chance, that they’ll really change this time, only to betray your trust once more?
