THE REPTILE ARMY.
PHARAOH was a proud and wicked king of Egypt; he held the people of Israel in cruel bondage, and would not set them free, though God bade him.
And his subjects were as cruel as he was. So God, to show that he was angry with them, turned the fine river Nile, which ran through the land, into blood. And, as they were all very fond of the water, this was a great trouble; still they would not obey God's command. How hard is the human heart, and how many strokes will it bear, without being the better. It is so hard, that no one but God can soften it. O that he would give me his Spirit, to make mine humble and contrite.'
