Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord: Let my people go, that they may minister me;
2 if you do not agree to let go, then, I am striking your whole area with toads;
3 and the river will condemn the frogs, and they will go out and go into your house, and into your bedroom, and into your bed, and into the houses of your servants and your people, and in your furnace, and in your quarters,
four and frogs will come upon you and your people and all your servants.
5 And the Lord said unto Moses, say unto Aaron, put thy hand with thy rod upon the rivers, the streams, and the lakes, and bring the frogs to the land of Egypt.
6 Aaron extended his hand to the waters of Egypt; and the frogs went out and covered the land of Egypt.
7 The Magi did the same with their spells and brought the toads to the land of Egypt.
8 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron and said: Pray to the Lord, that He will remove the frogs from me and from my people, and I will release the people of Israel to offer a sacrifice to the Lord.
9 Moses said to Pharaoh: appoint me when you pray for you, for your servants and for your people, so that the frogs disappear in your houses, and remain only in the river.
10 He said: tomorrow. [Moses] answered: [it will be] according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the Lord our God;
eleven and the frogs will be removed from you, from your houses, and from your servants and from your people; only in the river will they remain.
12 Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses appealed to the Lord about the frogs, which He brought to Pharaoh.
13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses: toads became extinct in houses, in the yards and in the fields;
fourteen and they gathered them together in heaps, and the earth stank.
fifteen And Pharaoh saw that relief was made, and hardened his heart, and did not listen to them, as the Lord had said.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses, say unto Aaron, put forth thy rod, and strike the earthly finger, and [perm] will become midges throughout all the land of Egypt.
17 And so they did: Aaron extended his hand with his rod and struck the earthly finger, and midges appeared on people and cattle. All the finger of the earth has become midges throughout the land of Egypt.
eighteen The magi also tried to make midges with their spells, but they could not. And there were midges on people and cattle.
19 And the magicians said to Pharaoh: This is the finger of God. But the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord said.

twenty And the Lord said to Moses: Tomorrow rise early and appear before Pharaoh. Now, he will go to the water, and you say to him: thus saith the Lord: let my people go, that he may minister to me.
21 but if you do not let my people go, then, I will send you and your servants, and your people, and your houses of dog flies, and the houses of Egypt will be filled with dog flies and the very land on which they [live];
22 and on that day I will divide the land of Goshen, on which My people abode, and there will be no dog flies, so that you know that I am the Lord among the earth;
23 I will make a division between my people and your people. Tomorrow will be this sign.
24 And so the Lord did: many dog ​​flies flew into the house of the Pharaohs, and into the houses of his slaves, and throughout the land of Egypt: the land perished from the dog flies.
25 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron and said: Go, offer a sacrifice to your God in this land.
26 But Moses said: this cannot be done, for our Egyptians abhorrently the sacrifice to the Lord our God: if we begin to offer an abhorrent sacrifice to the Egyptians in their eyes, will they not stone us?
27 we will go into the wilderness, three days' journey, and offer a sacrifice to the Lord our God, as he tells us.
28 And Pharaoh said: I will let you go to make a sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness, but do not go far; pray for me.
29th Moses said: behold, I am going out from you and praying to the Lord, and the songs of the fly will be removed from Pharaoh, and from his servants, and from his people tomorrow, only Pharaoh should stop deceiving, not letting the people sacrifice to the Lord.
thirty And Moses went out from Pharaoh and prayed to the Lord.
31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses and removed the dog flies from Pharaoh, from his servants and from his people: not one was left.
32 But Pharaoh hardened his heart, and this time did not let the people go.
