The Exodus page 5
The Lord spoke again to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, and say to him, The Lord says, ‘Let my people go, so they may serve Me. And if you refuse to let them go, indeed, I will strike your whole territory with frogs’.”
Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron and said, “Go, beg the Lord to take away the frogs, and I will let the people go.”
But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief from the plague, he hardened his heart, just as the Lord had said. So God continued to bring plagues upon the land of Egypt. Each time Pharaoh pleaded for the plague to stop, and it would. And then each time he would break his promise to let the Children of Israel go.
Next, God sent swarms of flies upon Pharaoh and upon his servants. He sent a horrible plague that killed all the cattle of Egypt; but none of the cattle of the Children of Israel died.
Then Moses stood before Pharaoh and sprinkled ashes up toward heaven, which caused boils to break out on all the Egyptians and their animals. Next God warned everyone that he would bring a torrential hail storm on Egypt. All who believed the word of the Lord, made their servants and cattle hide inside their houses: But those who disregarded the word of the Lord left their servants and their cattle in the field.
Then hail, mingled with fire, came down, ruining every planted field, breaking every tree and killing the servants and animals which were not inside. Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel lived, there was no hail.
The Lord then brought locusts over all the land of Egypt. They covered everything, so that the land was darkened; and they ate every plant which the hail hadn’t destroyed. Nothing green remained throughout the land of Egypt.
Then the Lord brought darknessa darkness so thick it could be felt covered all the land of Egypt for three days. People could not see each other and they did not go outside of their houses; but all the Children of Israel had light in their homes.
Pharaoh still wouldn’t let all the people go and even threatened Moses by saying, “Get away from me. The day you see my face again, you will die.”
Moses answered, “You have spoken correctly, I will never see your face again.”
