Exodus 9:6

Context
9:6 And the Lord did this 1  on the next day; 2  all 3  the livestock of the Egyptians 4  died, but of the Israelites’ livestock not one died.

1 tn Heb “this thing.”

2 tn Heb “on the morrow.”

3 tn The word “all” clearly does not mean “all” in the exclusive sense, because subsequent plagues involve cattle. The word must denote such a large number that whatever was left was insignificant for the economy. It could also be taken to mean “all [kinds of] livestock died.”

4 tn Heb “of Egypt.” The place is put by metonymy for the inhabitants.
