Doctrinal Point(s)

  2. Describe the sixth plague, for which no warning was given.
  3. List the attributes of God that are revealed in the plagues on Egypt.
  4. When else will we see plagues of judgment upon mankind?
  5. Does Pharaoh’s confession in Exodus 9:27 mean he became a believer?


  1. Possibly the Egyptians acquired more livestock between the plagues by stealing from the Israelites, whose livestock were not harmed.
  2. Moses and Aaron took handfuls of ashes and threw them up into the air. The wind scattered the ashes throughout the land and caused boils and sores to break out on the Egyptians and their animals.
  3. 1) omnipotence 2) sovereignty 3) holiness 4) justice 5) patience 6) longsuffering 7) mercy
  4. During the great Tribulation in the end times.
  5. No. We know from the rest of the Biblical record that he did not. Saving faith is more than acknowledging that God is righteous and you are a sinner.
