Exodus 11 Commentary

Please choose a passage:

Exodus 11:1-3

Verses 1 – 3 contain the LORD’s resolve to bring the last and most serious plague. The nature of the plague was not specified here, just the aftermath of the plague. The LORD told Moses that the Israelites would not just be allowed to leave Egypt after this plague, they would be driven out altogether. The Egyptians are enthusiastic that the plagues stop by any means. They even give their Israelite neighbors their gold and silver to entice them to leave. Even Moses would be greatly admired by the Egyptian people, (possible exception being Pharaoh, who is omitted from the list).

Exodus 11:4-8

Verses 4 – 8 contain the message that Moses gave to Pharaoh concerning this last plague.

Exodus 11:9-10

Verses 9 – 10 are a parenthetical note in the account. In it, the LORD reviews and summarized what has happened since the beginning of the plagues in 7:8.
