Psalms 105:36

 

 

He also struck down all the firstborn in their land, The first fruits of all their vigor.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

He smote also all the firstborn in their land,.... Both of men and beasts; the firstborn of the king on the throne, and of the maidservant behind the mill, and of the captive in the dungeon; this was the last plague, and which prevailed upon the Egyptians to let Israel go, Exodus 11:5.

The chief of all their strength; or the first of their strength; the same in different words as before, their firstborn; see Genesis 49:3.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Psalms 105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

Ver. 36. He smote also all the firstborn] This he did last of all, the next spring after the first plague inflicted, et non nisi coactus, as that emperor once said when he subscribed a writ for execution of a certain malefactor.

The chief of all their strength] Et ubi non erat primogenitus, moritur epitropus, say the Hebrews, where was not a firstborn, there the steward died; so that there was no house in Egypt without a dead corpse, as there are few among us without many dead souls.
