shall Pharaoh hearken unto me ?

CHAP. VIL

1 Moses is encouraged to go to Pharaoh. 7 His age.
8 His rod is turned into a serpent. 11 The sorcerers
do the like. 13 Pharaoh's lieart is hardened. 14 God's
message to Pharaoh. 19 The river is turned into blood.

AND the Lord said unto Moses, See,
I have made thee "a god to Pharaoh :
and Aaron thy brother shall be ''thy pro-
phet.

2 Thou "shalt speak all that I command
thee : and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto
Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel
out of his land.

3 And ''I will harden Pharaoh's heart,
and "multiply my ''signs and my wonders in
the land of Egypt.

4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you,
sthat I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and
bring forth mine armies, and my people the
children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt,
■^by great judgments.

5 And the Egyptians 'shall know that
I am the Lord, when I '' stretch forth mine
hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children
of Israel from among them.

6 And Moses and Aaron 'did as the Lord
commanded them, so did they.

7 And Moses i«as ■" fourscore years old,
and Aaron fourscore and three years old,
when they spake unto Pharaoh.

8 H And the Lord spake unto Moses, and
unto Aaron, saying,

9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you,
saying, ° Shew a miracle for you : then thou
shalt say unto Aaron, "Take thy rod, and
cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become
a serpent.

ion And Moses and Aaroo went in unto
Pharaoh, and they did so Pas the Lord had
commanded : and Aaron cast down his rod
before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and
it 1 became a serpent.

11 Then Pharaoh also 'called the wise
men, and Hhe sorcerers : now the magicians
of Egypt, they also 'did in like manner with
their enchantments.

12 For they cast down every man his rod,
and they became serpents : but Aaron's rod
swallowed up their rods.

13 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart that
he hearkened not unto them ; " as the Lord
had said.

14 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
^Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuseth to
let the people go.

15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning;
lo, he goeth out unto the water, and thou
shalt stand by the river's brink against he

come : and ^ the rod which was turned to
a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand.

16 And thou shalt say unto him, ^The
Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me
unto thee, saying. Let my people go, ^ that
they may serve me in the wilderness : and
behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear.

17 Thus saith the Lord, In this •'thou
shalt know that I am the Lord : behold,
I will smite with the rod that is in my
hand upon the waters which are in the river,
and «they shall be turned ""to blood.

18 And the fish that is in the river shall
die, and the river shall stink : and the
Egyptians shall ^loathe to drink of the
water of the river.

19 IT And the Lord spake unto Moses,
Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and ^ stretch
out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt,
upon their streams, upon their rivers, and
upon their ponds, and upon all their f pools
of water, that they may become blood : and
that there may be blood throughout all the
land of Egypt, both in vessels o/wood, and
in vessels of stone.

20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the
Lord commanded; and he ^ lifted up the.
rod and smote the waters that were in the
river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the
sight of his servants ; and all the ^ waters
that were in the river were turned into blood.

21 And the fish that was in the river
died ; and the river stank, and the Egyptians
'could not drink of the water of the river ;
and there was blood throughout all the land
of Egypt.

22 ''And the magicians of Egypt did so
with their enchantments : and Pharaoh's
heart was hardened, neither did he hearken
unto them; 'as the Lord had said.

23 And Pharaoh turned and went into
his house, neither did he set his heart to this
also.

24 And all the Egyptians digged round
about the river for water to drink ; for they
could not drink of the water of the river.

25 And seven days were fulfilled after
that the Lord had smitten the river.

The plague of frogs, and lice.

3 And the river shall bring forth frogs
abundantly, which shall go up and come into
thine house, and into '' thy bed-chamber, and
upon thy bed, and into the house of thy ser-
vants, and upon thy people, and into thine
ovens, and into thy || kneading troughs :

4 And the frogs shall come up both on
thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy
servants.

5 IT And the Lord spake unto Moses,
Say unto Aaron, "Stretch forth thine hand
with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers,
and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come
up upon the land of Egypt.

6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over
the waters of Egypt; and ""the frogs came up,
and covered the land of Egypt.

7 eAnd the magicians did so with their
enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the
land of Egypt.

8 II Then Pharaoh called for Moses and
Aaron, and said, ''Entreat the Lord that
he may take away the frogs from me, and
from my people : and I will let the people go,
that they may do sacrifice unto the Lord.

9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, |( Glory
over me : || when shall I entreat for thee -and
for thy servants, and for thy people, f to de-
stroy the frogs from thee, and thy houses, that
they may remain in the river only ?

10 And he said, || To-morrow. And he
said, Be it according to thy word : that thou
mayest know that ' there is none like unto
the Lord our God.

1 1 And the frogs shall depart from thee,
and from thy houses, and from thy servants,
and from thy people ; they shall remain in
the river only.

12 And Moses and Aaron went out from
Pharaoh : and Moses ''cried unto the Lord,
because of the frogs which he had brought
against Pharaoh.

13 And the Lord did according to the
word of Moses : and the frogs died out of
the houses, out of the villages, and out of
the fields.

14 And they gathered them together upon
heaps : and the land stank*

15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was
'respite, "he hardened his heart, and heark-
ened not unto them ; as the Lord had said.

16 IT And the Lord said unto Moses, Say
unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite
the dust of the land, that it may become lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.

17 And they did so ; for Aaron stretched
out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust
of the earth, and" it became Hce in man and
in beast : all the dust of the land became lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.

58



The plague of flies.

18 And "the magicians did so with their
enchantments to bring forth lice, but they
P could not: so there were lice upon man, and
upon beast.

19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh,
This is ithe finger of God: and Pharaoh's
'heart was hardened, and he hearkened not
unto them ; as the Lord had said.

20 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
'Rise up early in the morning, and stand
before Pharaoh ; (lo, he cometh forth to the
water ;) and say unto him, Thus saith the
Lord, 'Let my people go, that they may
serve me :

21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people
go, behold, I will send || swarms of Jlies
upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon
thy people, and into thy houses : and the
houses of the Egyptians shall be full of
swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon
they are.

22 And "I will sever in that day the land
of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that
no swarms of flies shall be there ; to the end
thou mayest know that I am the Lord in
the midst of the earth.

23 And I will put f a division between my
people and thy people : || to-morrow shall this
sign be.

24 And the Lord did so : and ^ there
came a grievous swarm of flies into the house
of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses,
and into all the land of Egypt : the land was
II corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies,

25 TT And Pharaoh called for Moses, and
for Aaron, and said. Go ye, sacrifice to year
God in the land.

26 And Moses said. It is not meet so to
do ; for we shall sacrifice y the abomination of
the Egyptians to the Lord our God : Lo,
shall we sacrifice the abomination of the
Egyptians before their eyes, and will they
not stone us ?

27 We will go ^ three days' journey into
the wilderness, and sacrifice to the Lord our
God, as *he shall command us,

28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go,
that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your God
in the wilderness ; only ye shall not go very
far away : *• entreat for me.

29 And Moses said. Behold, I go out from
thee, and I will entreat the Lord that the
swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh,
from his servants, and from his people, to-
morrow : but let not Pharaoh •'deal deceit-
fully any more, in not letting the people go to
sacrifice to the Lord.

30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh,
and ^ entreated the Lord :

of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and
from his people ; there remained not one.

32 And Pharaoh "hardened his heart at
this time also, neither would he let the people
go.

CHAP. IX.

1 The murrain of beasts. 8 The plague of boils and
blains. 13 His message about the hail. 22 The
plague of hail. 27 Fharaoh sueth to Moses, 35 biit
yet is hardeiied.

THEN the Lord said unto Moses, ''Go
in unto Pharaoh, and tell him. Thus
saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let mv
people go, that they may serve me.

2 For if thou ''refuse to let them go, and
wilt hold them still,

3 Behold, the *= hand of the Lord is upon
thy cattle which is in the field, upon the
horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon
the oxen, and upon the sheep : there shall
he a very grievous murrain.

4 And ''the Lord shall sever between the
cattle of Israel, and the cattJe of Egypt: and
there shall nothing die of all that is the chil-
dren's of Israel.

5 And the Lord appointed a set time,
saying, To-morrow the Lord shall do this
thing in the land.

6 And the Lord did that thing on the
morrow, and * all the cattle of Egypt died :
but of the cattle of the children of Israel died
not one.

7 And Pharaoh sent, and behold, there
was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead.
And ''the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and
he did not let the people go.

. 8 IT And the Lord said unto Moses and
unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of
the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward
the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

9 And it shall become small dust in all the
land of Egypt, and shall be sa boil breaking
forth with blains upon man, and upon beast,
throughout all the land of Egypt.

10 And they took ashes of the furnace,
and stood before Pharaoh ; and Moses sprink-
led it up toward heaven : and it became ''a
boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and
upon beast.

11 And the 'magicians could not stand
before Moses, because of the boils: for the
boil was upon the magicians, and upon all
the Egyptians.

12 And the Lord hardened the heart of
Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them ;
''as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

13 HAnd the Lord said unto Moses,
'Rise up early in the morning, and stand
before Pharaoh, and say unto him. Thus saith

59



The plague of hail.

the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my
people go, that they may serve me.

14 For I will at this time send all my
plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy ser-
vants, and upon thy people: "that thou
mayest know that there is none like me in
all the earth.

15 For now I will "stretch out my hand,
that I may smite thee and thy people with
pestilence ; and thou shalt be cut ofT from
the earth.

16 And in very deed for "this cause have
1 1 raised thee up, for to shew m thee my
power ; and that my name may be de-
clared throughout all the earth.

17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against
my people, that thou wilt not let them go ?

18 Behold, to-morrow about this time
I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail,
such as hath not been in Egypt since the
foundation thereof even until now.

19 Send therefore now, and gather thy
cattle, and all that thou hast in the field :
for upon every man and beast which shall be
found in the field, and shall not be brought
home, the hail shall come down upon them,
and they shall die.

20 He that feared the word of the Lord
among the servants of Pharaoh made his ser-
vants and his cattle flee into the houses :

21 And he that f regarded not the word
of the Lord left his servants and his cattle
in the field.

22 II And the Lord said unto Moses,
Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that
there may be Phail in all the land of Eg3rpt,
upon man, and upon beast, and upon every
herb of the field, throughout the land of
Egypt.

23 And Moses stretched forth his rod
toward heaven, and ithe Lord sent thunder
and hail, and the fire ran along upon the
ground : and the Lord rained hail upon the
land of Egypt.

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with
the hail, very grievous, such as there was
none like it in all the land of Egypt since it
became a nation.

25 And the hail smote throughout all the
land of Egypt all that was in the field, both
man and beast, and the hail "■ smote every
herb of the field and brake every tree of the
field.

26 'Only in the land of Goshen, where the
children of Israel were, was there no hail.

27 H And Pharaoh sent and called for
Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, 'I
have sinned this time : " the Lord is right-
eous, and I and my people are wicked.

29 And Moses said unto him. As soon as
I am gone out' of the city, I will y spread
abroad my hands unto the Lord ; and the
thunder shall cease, neither shall there be
any more hail ; that thou mayest know how
that the ^ earth is the Lord's.

31 And the flax and the barley was smit-

flax was boiled.

32 But the wheat and the rye were not
smitten : for they were t not grown up.

33 And Moses went out of the city from
Pharaoh, and ' spread abroad his hands unto
the Lord : and the thunders and hail ceased,
and the rain was not poured upon the earth.

34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain
and the hail and the thunders were ceased,
he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart,
he and his servants.

35 And "^the heart of Pharaoh was har-
dened, neither would he let the children of
Israel go ; as the Lord had spoken f by
Moses.

2 And that Hhou mayest tell in the ears

I have done among them ; that ye may know

from Pharaoh.

7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him.
How long shall this man be '' a snare unto
us ? Let the men go, that they may serve the
Lord their God : Knowest thou not yet that
Egypt is destroyed?

8 And Moses and Aaron were brought
again unto Pharaoh : and he said unto them,
Go, serve the Lord your God: hut "[ who
are they that shall go?

9 And Moses said. We will go with our
young and with our old, with our sons and
with our daughters, with our flocks and with
our herds will we go : for ' we must hold a
feast unto the Lord.

10 And he said unto them. Let the Lord
be so with you, as I will let you go, and your
little ones : look to it; for evil is before you.

11 Not so : go now ye that are men, and
serve the Lord ; for that ye did desire.
And they were driven out from Pharaoh's
presence.

13 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
'^ Stretch out thine hand over the land of
Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up
upon the land of Egypt, and ' eat every herb
of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over
the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an
east wind upon the land all that day, and all
that night : and when it was morning, the
east wind brought the locusts.

14 And ""the locusts went up over all the
land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts
of Egypt: very grievous were they; "before
them there were no such locusts as they,
neither after them shall be such.

,15 For they "covered the face of the whole
earth, so that the land was darkened ; and
Ihey Pdid eat every herb of the land, and all
the fruit of the trees which the hail had left :
and there remained not any green thing in
the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through
all the land of Egypt.

16 IT Then Pharaoh f called for Moses and
Aaron in haste ; and he said, il have sinned
against the Lord your God, and against you.

17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my
sin only this once, and "^entreat the Lord
your God that he may take away from me

west wind which took away the locusts,

heart, so that he would not let the children
of Israel go.

flocks and your herds be stayed : let your
''little ones also go with you.

25 And Moses said. Thou must give fus
also sacrifices, and burnt-offerings, that we

thou shalt die.

29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken
well, ''I will see thy face again no more.
