Boils

The boils come with an interesting consequence for the Egyptians. Not only are they suffering with the discomfort of the boils, but the boils render the magicians and the priest unclean. This uncleanliness makes them unfit to serve so they are held powerless in their positions in the Egyptians culture. This is why they “could not stand before Moses because of the boils.” They were all powerless against the God of Israel.
