Darby Bible Translation

Amos 4:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I have sent - the pestilence - After the blasting and the mildew, the pestilence came; and it acted among them as one of the plagues of Egypt. Besides this, he had suffered their enemies to attack and prevail against them; alluding to the time in which the Syrians besieged Samaria, and reduced it to the most extreme necessity, when the head of an ass was sold for eighty pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five; and mothers ate the flesh of their children that had died through hunger, 2 Kings 6:25. And the people were miraculously relieved by the total slaughter of the Syrians by the unseen hand of God, 2 Kings 7:1, etc. And yet, after all those signal judgments, and singular mercies, "they did not return unto the Lord!"

The LORD will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess.
The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors, festering sores and the itch, from which you cannot be cured.
He will bring on you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you.
2 Kings 13:3

2 Kings 13:7
