10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw. 11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished. 12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw. 13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw. 14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as iheretofore? 15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants? 16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people. 17 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the Lord. 18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks. 19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of kyour daily task. 20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh: 21 lAnd they said unto them, The Lord look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

22 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me? 23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.

6 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for awith a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand bshall he drive them out of his land. And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am ||the Lord: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of cGod Almighty, but by my name dJEHOVAH was I not known to them. eAnd I have also established my covenant with them, fto give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. And gI have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, hI am the Lord, and iI will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will kredeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: And I will ltake you to me for a people, and mI will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out nfrom under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did oswear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the Lord. And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: pbut they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

10 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. 12 And Moses spake before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have qnot hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, rwho am of uncircumcised lips? 13 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

14 These be the heads of their fathers’ houses: sThe sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these be the families of Reuben. 15 tAnd the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the families of Simeon. 16 And these are the names of uthe sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were xan hundred thirty and seven years. 17 yThe sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families. 18 And zthe sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and three years. 19 And athe sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the families of Levi according to their generations. 20 And bAmram took him Jochebed his father’s sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years. 21 And cthe sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. 22 And dthe sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri. 23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of eAmminadab, sister of fNaashon, to wife; and she bare him gNadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 24 And the sons of Korah; hAssir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these are the families of the Korhites. 25 And Eleazar Aaron’s son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and ishe bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families. 26 These are that Aaron and Moses, kto whom the Lord said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their larmies. 27 These are they which mspake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

28 And it came to pass on the day when the Lord spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 That the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, nI am the Lord: ospeak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee. 30 And Moses said before the Lord, Behold, pI am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?

7 And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee aa god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be bthy prophet. Thou cshalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. And dI will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and emultiply fmy signs and emy wonders in the land of Egypt. But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, gthat 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 gby great judgments. And the Egyptians hshall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them. And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, so did they. And Moses was ifourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, kShew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a lserpent. 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 mthe wise men and nthe sorcerers: now mthe magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. 13 And ohe hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go. 15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink against he come; and pthe rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand. 16 And thou shalt say unto him, qThe Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, rthat they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, shitherto thou wouldest not hear. 17 Thus saith the Lord, In this sthou 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 tto blood. 18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall ulothe to drink of the water of the river. 19 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and xstretch 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. 20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he ylifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the zwaters that were in the river were turned to blood. 21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians acould not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 bAnd the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and cPharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; das the Lord had said. 23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also. 24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the Lord had smitten the river.

8 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, athat they may serve me. And if thou brefuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with cfrogs: And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into …
