Question: How many were the plagues on Egypt?

Answer: In Exodus we count total of 10 plagues in Egypt. With them the God of Israel not only punished Egypt and Pharaoh for refusing to let Israel go, but He also mocked the ten gods that were worshiped by the Egyptians.

However, another plague took place that devastated Egypt; it took place outside of Egypt, on the bottom of the Red Sea, that mocked another god of Egypt: Pharaoh himself; he was considered a god, too.

While the ten plagues in Egypt devastated the Egyptian economy and demography, the eleventh plague on Egypt devastated the Egyptian army, and Egypt never returned to its glory of being the world power.
