i Moses is encouraged to go to Pharaoh: 8 His Rod is turv^t into a Serpent. 13 Pharaoh's Heart is hardened. 19 Tbt River is turned into Blood.
Ver. 1 A ND the Lord said unto Moses, Sec, I have made Jljl thee God to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy Brother shall be thy Prophet.
2 And thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy Brother shall speak unto Pharaohx that he send the Children of Israel out of his Land.
3 And I will harden Pharaoh's Heart, and multiply my Signs and my Wonders in the Land of Egypt.
4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my Hand upon Egypt, and bring forth "mine Armies, and my People the Children of Israel, out of the Land of Egypt, by great Judgments.
5 And the Egyptians shall know, that I am the Lord, when I stretch forth mine Hand upon Egypt, and bring out the Children of Israel from among them.
6 And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, so did they.
7 And Moses was Fourscore Years old, and Aaron fourscore and three Years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh. ,
8 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,
9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a Miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy Rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a Serpent.
10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his Rod before Pharaoh, and before his Servants, and it became a Serpent.
11 Then Pharaoh also called the Wife-men, and the Sorcerers: now the Magicians of Egypt, they also did in like Manner with their Inchantments.
12 For they cast down every Man his Rod, and they became Serpents: but Aaron's Rod swallowed up their Rods.
* 3 And he hardened Pharaoh's Henrt, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.
14 Arid the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh's Heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the People go.
1 5 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the Morning, lo, he goeth oat unto the Water, and thou shalt stand by the River's Brink against he come: and the Rod which was turned to a Serpent shalt thou take in thine Hand.
16 And thou shalt say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my People •go, that they may serve me in the Wilderness: and behold, hitherto, thou wouldest not hear.
17 Thus faith the Lord, In this thou-shalt know that I am the Lord: behold, I will smite with the Rod that is in mine Hand, upon the Waters which are in the River, and they shall be turned to Blood.
18 And the Fish that is in the River shall die, and the River shall stink; and the Egyptians will loath to drink of die Water of the River.
1 g And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy Rod, and stretch out thine Hand upon the Waters of Egypt, upon their Streams, upon their Rivers, and upon their Ponds, and upon all their Pools of Water, that they may become Blood; and that there may be Blood throughout all the Land of Egypt, both in Vessels of Wood, and in Vessels of Stone.

2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy Borders with Frogs.
3 And the River shall bring forth Frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine House, and into thy Bed-chamber, and upon thy Bed, and into the House of thy Servants, and upon thy People, and into thine Ovens, and into thy Kneading-troughs.
4 And the Frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy People, and upon all thy Servants.
5 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch fcrth thine Hand with thy Ron over the Streams, over the Rivers, and over the Ponds, and cause Frogs to come up upon the Land of Egypt,
6 And Aaron stretched out his Hand over the Waters of Egypt; and the Frogs came up, and covered the Land of Egypt.
7 And the Magicians did so with their Inchantments, and brought up Frogs upon the Land of Egypt.
8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the Lord that he may take away the Frogs from me, and from my People: and I will let the People go, that they may do Sacrifice unto the Lord. 9 And
