If all the cattle died in Exodus 9:6, how are more killed in verse 19 and then in Exodus 12:29?
First, the Bible never says how much time elapsed between these plagues. It is entirely possible that the Egyptians restocked their cattle by purchasing from surrounding nations or from the Hebrews. 1 Furthermore, the Bible never says all the cattle died in these plagues, just the cattle “which is in the field” (Exodus 9:3) and “which shall be found in the field” (Exodus 9:19). Cattle kept in barns or stalls during either of these plagues would not have necessarily died.
