Pharaoh gave this order to the slave
drivers and overseers in charge of the
people: “You are no longer to supply
the people with straw for making
bricks; let them go and gather their
own straw. But require them to make
the same number of bricks as before;
don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy;
that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us
go and sacrifice to our God.’ Make the
work harder for the people so that they
keep working and pay no attention to
lies.” Then the slave drivers and the
overseers went out and said to the
people, “This is what Pharaoh says: ‘I
will not give you any more straw. Go
and get your own straw wherever you
can find it, but your work will not be
reduced at all.’”
Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Why, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this
people? Is this why you sent me? Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he
has brought trouble on this people, and you have not rescued your people at all.” Then
the Lord said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty
hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is unyielding; he refuses to let the people
go. Go to Pharaoh in the morning as he goes out to the river. Confront him on the bank of
the Nile, and take in your hand the staff that was changed into a snake. Then say to him,
‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that
they may worship me in the wilderness. But until now you have not listened. This is what
the Lord says: By this you will know that I am the Lord: With the staff that is in my hand I will
strike the water of the Nile, and it will be changed into blood. The fish in the Nile will die,
and the river will stink; the Egyptians will not be able to drink its water.’”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says:
Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you refuse to let them go, I will send a
plague of frogs on your whole country. The Nile will teem with frogs. They will come up into
your palace and your bedroom and onto your bed, into the houses of your officials and on
your people, and into your ovens and kneading troughs. The frogs will come up on you
and your people and all your officials.’”
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. And 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. And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they
could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast. Then 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.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and confront Pharaoh as he
goes to the river and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: Let my people go, so that
they may worship me. If you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies on you
and your officials, on your people and into your houses. The houses of the Egyptians will
be full of flies; even the ground will be covered with them.“‘But on that day I will deal
differently with the land of Goshen, where my people live; no swarms of flies will be there,
so that you will know that I, the Lord, am in this land. I will make a distinction between my
people and your people. This sign will occur tomorrow.’”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the
God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worship me.” If you refuse
to let them go and continue to hold them back, the hand of the Lord will bring a terrible
plague on your livestock in the field—on your horses, donkeys and camels and on your
cattle, sheep and goats. But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel
and that of Egypt, so that no animal belonging to the Israelites will die.’”
Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of soot from a furnace and have
Moses toss it into the air in the presence of Pharaoh. It will become fine dust over the
whole land of Egypt, and festering boils will break out on people and animals throughout
the land.”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning, confront Pharaoh and say to him,
‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so that they may
worship me, or this time I will send the full force of my plagues against you and against your
officials and your people, so you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth. For
by now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people with a plague
that would have wiped you off the earth. But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I
might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth. You still set
yourself against my people and will not let them go. Therefore, at this time tomorrow I will
send the worst hailstorm that has ever fallen on Egypt, from the day it was founded till now.
Give an order now to bring your livestock and everything you have in the field to a place of
shelter, because the hail will fall on every person and animal that has not been brought in
and is still out in the field, and they will die.’”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts
of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them that you may tell your
children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my
signs among them, and that you may know that I am the Lord.” So Moses and Aaron went to
Pharaoh and said to him, “This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: ‘How long will
you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If
you refuse to let them go, I will bring locusts into your country tomorrow. They will cover the
face of the ground so that it cannot be seen. They will devour what little you have left after
the hail, including every tree that is growing in your fields. They will fill your houses and
those of all your officials and all the Egyptians—something neither your parents nor your
ancestors have ever seen from the day they settled in this land till now.’” Then Moses turned
and left Pharaoh.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness
spreads over Egypt—darkness that can be felt.”
