Frogs over the Land

1 Then F125 the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, `Thus says the LORD, "Let R222 My people go, that they may serve Me. 2 "But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite your whole territory with frogs. 3 "The Nile will swarm R223 with frogs, which will come up and go into your house and into your bedroom and on your bed, and into the houses of your servants and on your people, and into your ovens and into your kneading bowls. 4 "So the frogs will come up on you and your people and all your servants.""' 5 Then F126 the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, `Stretch R224 out your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the streams F127 and over the pools, and make frogs come up on the land of Egypt.' " 6 So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs R225 F128 came up and covered the land of Egypt. 7 The R226 magicians F129 did the F130 same with their secret arts, making F131 frogs come up on the land of Egypt.

8 Then Pharaoh called R227 for Moses and Aaron and said, "Entreat R228 the LORD that He remove the frogs from me and from my people; and I R229 will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to the LORD." 9 Moses said to Pharaoh, "The F132 honor is yours to tell me: when shall I entreat for you and your servants and your people, that the frogs be destroyed F133 from you and your houses, that they may be left only in the Nile?"

10 Then he said, "Tomorrow." So he said, "May it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no R230 one like the LORD our God. 11 "The frogs R231 will depart from you and your houses and your servants and your people; they will be left only in the Nile." 12 Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses R232 cried to the LORD concerning the frogs which He had inflicted F134 upon Pharaoh. 13 The LORD did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died out of the houses, the courts, and the fields. 14 So they piled them in heaps, and the land became F135 foul. 15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened F136 his heart and did R233 not listen to them, as the LORD had said.

The Plague of flies

16 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, `Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become gnats F137 through all the land of Egypt.' " 17 They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were gnats F138 on man and beast. All the dust of the earth became gnats R234 F138 through all the land of Egypt. 18 The magicians F139 tried with their secret arts to bring forth gnats, F140 but they R235 could not; so there were gnats F140 on man and beast. 19 Then the magicians F141 said to Pharaoh, "This R236 is the finger of God." But Pharaoh's heart was hardened, F142 and he did not listen to them, as the LORD had said.

20 Now the LORD said to Moses, "Rise R237 early in the morning and present yourself before Pharaoh, as F143 he R238 comes out to the water, and say to him, `Thus says the LORD, "Let R239 My people go, that they may serve Me. 21 "For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into your houses; and the houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they dwell. 22 "But R240 on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where My people are living, F144 so that no swarms of flies will be there, in order that you may know that I, R241 F145 the LORD, am in the midst of the land. 23 "I will put F146 a division between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign will occur.""' 24 Then the LORD did so. And there came great F147 swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and the houses of his servants and the land was laid R242 waste because of the swarms of flies in all the land of Egypt.

25 Pharaoh called R243 for Moses and Aaron and said, "Go, R244 sacrifice to your God within the land." 26 But Moses said, "It is not right to do so, for we will sacrifice to the LORD our God what F148 is an R245 abomination to the Egyptians. If we sacrifice what F148 is an abomination to the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not then stone us? 27 "We must go a three R246 days' journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the LORD our God as He commands F149 us." 28 Pharaoh said, "I R247 will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Make R248 supplication for me." 29 Then Moses said, "Behold, I am going out from you, and I shall make supplication to the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow; only do not let Pharaoh deal R249 deceitfully again in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD."

30 So Moses R250 went out from Pharaoh and made supplication to the LORD. 31 The LORD did as F150 Moses asked, and removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants and from his people; not one remained. 32 But Pharaoh hardened F151 his heart this time also, and he R251 did not let the people go.
