Breadcrumb: Allies in the enemy camp
Pop quiz: did the Egyptians believe in the Israelite God? Apparently, at least some of them believed in his power. By the time of the seventh plague, hail, God gives the Egyptians one day's warning to take in their cattle from the field so they won't die. While some Egyptians scoff and leave their cattle outside, others feared God and brought their cattle in, where they could live. (Ex. 9:19-21) It seems that some people learned their lesson the first six times and decided to allow the Israelite God onto their list of deities not to mess with.
