Ninth plague – Darkness

Exodus 10:21-29. Thick darkness that could be felt in Egypt for three days, but in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites lived, there was light. Ra, the sun god of the Egyptians, had just been judged.

There was darkness for three hours as Jesus hung on the cross. Matthew 27:45 and Luke 23:44-46 and Revelation the sixth seal, Rev 6:12-17.

Nine.The Plague of Darkness
21 Then the LORD told Moses, “Stretch your hand toward the sky and there will be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness that one can feel.” 22 So Moses stretched his hand toward the sky, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days. 23 No one could see anyone else, nor could anyone get up from his place for three days. But there was light for all the Israelis in their dwellings.

24 Pharaoh called Moses and said, “Go serve the LORD, but your flocks and your cattle are to remain. Even your little ones can go with you!”

25 Moses said, “You must let us have sacrifices and burnt offerings to offer to the LORD our God. 26 And even our livestock must go with us. Not a hoof will be left behind because we will use some of them to serve the LORD our God, and until we get there we won’t know what we need to serve LORD.”

27 The LORD made Pharaoh’s heart stubborn, and he did not want to let them go. 28 Then Pharaoh told him, “Get away from me! Watch out that you never see my face again, because on the day you see my face, you will die!”

29 Moses said, “Just as you have said, I won’t see your face again!”
