New Defender's Study Bible Notes

However, the account refers merely to “thy cattle which is in the field” (Exodus 9:3); no doubt “the horses and chariots of Pharaoh” were kept in the palatial stables. It is also possible that the term “cattle” did not include the horses. In any case, there is no necessary contradiction.
