Treasury of Scripture

He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

Proverbs 6:16
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

Proverbs 22:2,23
The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all…

Jonah 3:5,6
So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them…









(20, 21) He that feared . . . --Some impression, we see, had been made by the preceding plagues, and the warning was taken to some extent; but it was otherwise with many. So in Gospel times, "Some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not" (Acts 28:24). The result was death, both to the cattle and their keepers (Exodus 9:19). (Comp. Joshua 10:11.)

Verse 20. - He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh. It is a new fact that any of the Egyptians had been brought to "fear the word of Jehovah." Probably, the effect of the plagues had been gradually to convince a considerable number, not so much that Jehovah was the one True God as that he was a great and powerful god, whose chastisements were to be feared. Consequently there were now a certain number among the "servants of Pharaoh" who pro-fired by the warning given (ver. 19), and housed their cattle and herdsmen, in anticipation of the coming storm.
