Psalm 136:10 is a Bible verse that contradicts itself. 

This video briefly describes why Psalm 136:10 contradicts itself

Even if you assume that only 10% of these were first born, God killed the wrong person, between 200,000 and 450,000 times, in a single night. 

Psalm 136:10

A Bible Verse That Contradicts Itself

1-minute video

Yet this verse says that these killings were examples of God’s mercy, love and lovingkindness. 

It says, “To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn, for His mercy endures forever”. Other translations say “love” or “lovingkindness”.

It was Pharaoh who was preventing the Israelites from leaving Egypt. But God killed those who were in no way responsible for Pharaoh’s decision. 

How many people were killed? It is estimated that there were between 2 million and 4 and a half million people living in Egypt. 

This refers to the book of Exodus, which says that “The Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, even the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of cattle”
