the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
2And if thou refuse to let them go, behold,
I will smite all thy borders with frogs:
the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon
thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:
4And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy
5And 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.
stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
7And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the
land of Egypt.
8Then Pharaoh called for Moses
and Aaron, and said, Intreat 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.
Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy
the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?
10And 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.
the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the
12And Moses and Aaron went out
from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.
13And 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.
they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.
when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
16And 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.
17And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth,
and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
18And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they
could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.
the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them;
as the LORD had said.
20And 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.
if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies 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.
22And 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.
23And I will put a
division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
24And 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 corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
25And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your
God in the land.
26And Moses said, It is not
meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice 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?
will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.
28And 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: intreat for me.
29And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat 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 deceitfully any more
in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.
Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from
his people; there remained not one.
Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.
