Treasury of Scripture

And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.

a set time

Exodus 9:18
Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

Exodus 8:23
And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

Exodus 10:4
Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:









(5) The Lord appointed a set time.--As murrain is not uncommon in Egypt, especially in the Delta, and the coming affliction might therefore be ascribed by the Egyptians to natural causes, God took care to mark its miraculous character (1) by appointing a time; (2) by exempting the cattle of Israel; (3) by making the disease fatal to all the cattle of the Egyptians that were left "in the field."

Tomorrow.--The delay allowed any Egyptians who believed Moses to save their cattle by housing them.

Verse 5. - To-morrow. God may have interposed the interval in order that such as believed the announcement might save their animals by bringing them in out of the fields. All the cattle died - i.e, all that were "in the field" (ver. 3).
