Now that was brilliant

Exodus Bible Background

01.24.2017 – Old Testament: Exo 8.5–7

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 7–8 on January 24, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The Lord sent the second wave of plagues upon Egypt when He told Moses to tell Aaron to stretch out his rod over the waters of Egypt,

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, Stretch out your hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.” So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt (Exodus 8.5–7). 

Frogs from the streams, rivers, and ponds went upon all the land of Egypt. What did the magicians do? Did they use their power to remove the frogs? No, they used their power to bring up more frogs! Now that was brilliant. Evil thinks it is powerful. Evil thinks it can do more than righteousness. Truly, evil is stupid.


  • What do you think when criminals record their crimes than post it on the Internet?
  • Have you boasted of your evil before?
