The fifth plague was a disease that exterminated all the Egyptian livestock but left the Hebrew livestock standing. Pharaoh still refused to let the Hebrews go, and in fact he probably took the Hebrew livestock because the Egyptians had cattle again by the seventh plague.

The sixth plague was a skin disease. Pharaoh’s magicians could not heal themselves, let alone heal anyone else afflicted in Egypt. But Pharaoh thought he could ride this one out so he “hardened his heart” (which is really to say God messed with his free will) and he did not hearken unto Moses.

The seventh plague was giant hailstones that killed any people or cattle standing outdoors. None of the hail fell on the Hebrews. Pharaoh admitted his guilt and Moses caused the hail to stop. After he did, Pharaoh went back on his word yet again. Yes, Moses was definitely starting to see a pattern here.
