Exodus 10

5 A swarm of locusts can do incredible damage. A swarm of locusts can quickly eat up every visible green thing in just a few minutes. A locust attack now would destroy all the late crops. The first crops were already destroyed, and the livestock had already been destroyed on two separate occasions. The agricultural wealth of Egypt would be completely destroyed.
6 Locust swarms had happened before and have happened since, but this swarm would be like no other in history. The swarm would cover the entire land of Egypt.
7 Some of Pharaoh's servants and advisors were still against letting Israel leave, but as was seen previously, other servants were very much afraid of letting them stay.
9 Worship can and should be a family activity. Children should be taught about God from an early age. Young children are capable of faith in God, and parents who actively share their faith will help these youngsters know and love God.
10 Pharaoh accuses Moses of attempting to "steal" the Israelites out of Egypt. Pharaoh calls this an "evil" intent, but we already know that in just a little while Pharaoh will command the Israelites to leave.
11 Pharaoh was willing to let the men go, but not all the people.
13 Moses gave the signal, but it was God who performed the miracle. God does not take queues from men, but God allows us to participate in His work.
16 This is Pharaoh's second confession. However, notice that Pharaoh calls Him "their" God, and not "the" God.
17 Pharaoh asks for forgiveness "just this once."
20 God is not finished with Pharaoh yet. Once more He gives Pharaoh "supernatural" stubbornness so that he will not let the Israelites go.
21 The darkness would be "felt" in the sense that the Egyptians would be filled with terror because of the strange darkness.
23 This darkness was like no other. It appears that even if the Egyptians could find a lamp to light, their lamps would not give them any light.
24 Pharaoh knew that if the Israelites left their flocks behind, then they would probably return.
26 Moses counters and says that they must have something to sacrifice and God would only indicate later what exactly was to be sacrificed.
28 The "stress" that Pharaoh is under is immense. His country is in economic collapse, a "Force" they can't see or comprehend terrifies him and his people, and his labor force wants to leave. Personally, his status as a "god" was destroyed and his advisors were quickly turning against him. His only recourse is to threaten Moses.
29 Moses tells Pharaoh that indeed, he will not see him again. Pharaoh's time had run out.
