13 And 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.

1+ And they gathered them together upon heaps; and the land stank.

15 But when Pharaoh saw that there ■was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

16 tj And the Lor D said unto Moseg, 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.

17 And they d id so; for Aaron stretch ed 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.

18 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.

19 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 Lo R D had said.

10 «I And the Lor D said unto Moses, Rife up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and fay unto him, Thus faith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me:

»i Else, 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 (hall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shalt this sign be.

24. And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarrn 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.

25 And Pharaoh called forMoscs and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

16 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomi

nation of the Egyptians to the Lori our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abo mutation of the Egyptians before thei eyes, and will they not stone us?

27 We will go three days' journey in to the wilderness, and sacrifice to th Lo R D our God, as he (hall command us

28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go that ye may sacrifice to the Lo R D youi God in the wilderness; only ye shall no go very far away: intreat for me.

29 And Moses said. Behold, I go oul from thee, and I will intreat the Lo R D 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 Lo R D .

30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lor D.

4 And the Lord ihall fever between the cattle of Israel, and the cattle os Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel.

5 And the Lord appointed a set time, siying, To morrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land.

land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the held throughout the land of K/ypt.

13 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lo R D rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

14. So there was hail, and tire mingled with the hail, very grievous, luch as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

15 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that -was in the field, both man and beast: and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

16 Only in the land of Gostien, where the children of Uriel -were, was there no hail.

17 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moles and Aaron, and laid unto them, I have sinned this time: the Loud is righteous, and I and my people wr wicked.

*8 Intreat the Lo R D (torit is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye (hall stay no longer.

29 And Moles said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lok D : and the thunder (hall cease, neither (hall there be any more hail; that thou inayelt know how that the earth is the Lord's.

30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.

31 And the flax and the barl»/ was smitten: for the bailey •was in the ear, and the flax ivas boiled.

3z But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they •were not grown up.

33 And Moles went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad hu hands unto the Lord : and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.

34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the Thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Ilrael go; as the Lord had spoken by Moles. . .

» And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I em the Lord.

3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus faith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me:

+ F-lse, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coasts:

5 And they mail cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to fee the earth: and they (hall eat the residue of that which isescaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat

-every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

6 And they (hall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.

7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long (hall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord theirGod: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

S And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: tut who are they that (hall go?

9 And Moses said, We will go with Our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go: for we must hold a feast unto the Lord.

Io And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

ii Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

n ^f And the Lor D said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the lafld, even all that the hail hath left.

13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought au taft wind upon the land all

that day and all that night: and when it was morning, the east wuid brought the locusts.

1+ And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous <were they, before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them sl:all be such.

15 For they covered the face of the w?ioIe earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of theland, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field,-through all the land of Egypt.

»6 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, 1 have finned against the Lord your God, and against you.

17 Now therefore, forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

i8_And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.

19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red lea; there remained not one locust in. all the coasts of Egypt.

20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

21 fl And the Lord said untoMosei, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness ivhick may be felt.

22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven: and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

13 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days; but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

14 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord : only let your flocks and your herds be stayed; let your little ones also go with you.

25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices, and bnrnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lor D our God.

16 Our cattle also (hall go with us; there (hall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lo R B, until we <jo»* thither.
