Despite Moses’ entreaties that Pharaoh release the people of Israel from their bondage, the king’s heart is hardened and the answer is a defiant “No!” God now unleashes his judgment against Pharaoh, Egypt and Egypt’s gods and goddesses through a series of ten plagues. Frankly, there is some pretty disgusting things involved: water into blood, frogs, lice, gnats, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and, finally, death. It’s quite an amazing experience for Moses, Pharaoh, and indirectly, the Israelites.
