Plagues of Egypt (3)

Gnats (Lice)

The brevity of this plagues description draws focus on the Egyptians magicians. Until this point they have been recreating all of the plagues in an attempt to reduce God and dehumanize the occurrences. People still suffer from this urge today.  It is at this point that the magicians find themselves powerless to reproduce gnats from the dust and must give credit to the God of Israel, although this has no positive effect on Pharaoh.
