Moses was to assemble the elders of Israel, and all together they were to go to Pharaoh. Suddenly this plague of boils comes upon them and they are unclean, unfit to serve in the temples.
It was to demonstrate to Israel that He was the Almighty God, their deliverer. If you deny this request, your servants will suffer the affliction of the plague.
Anytime we place the creation, or any part of it, above Him the inevitable result will be upheaval in the natural order of things.
The locust is used in Scripture as a picture of judgment. My mother left me a two-page single-spaced typed letter on what to do in every eventuality, including if someone staged a coup in Jamaica.
