110-111 : The Plague Of Frogs

110-111 : The Plague Of Frogs


Seven days passed after the Lord had struck the waters.
 Then God said to Moses: "Go to Pharaoh, and say to him,'These are the words of the Lord:"Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you refuse to let them go, then I will send a plague of frogs over all your country. The river shall bring forth quantities of frogs, which shall come up into your house, and into your bedroom and on to your bed, and into the houses of your servants and upon your people, and into your ovens and into your cooking bowls. And the frogs shall swarm over
you and your people and over all your servants." "'

And God commanded Moses, saying: "Tell Aaron to stretch out his hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers and over the ponds, and cause the frogs to come upon the land of Egypt.'

Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land.
But the magicians did the same with their enchantments, and they brought up frogs upon the land of

Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said: "Pray to the Lord, and ask him to take the frogs away from me and from my people.
And I will let the people go, in order that they may make sacrifices to the Lord:

Moses said to Pharaoh:"When shall I pray for you, and for your servants and for your people, to
have the frogs destroyed among you and your houses, so that they may remain only in the river?"
"Tomorrow," Pharaoh said.

 Then Moses said:"It shall be as you ask,
 so that you may know that there is no one like the Lord our God.
 The frogs shall be taken from you and from your houses,
 and from your servants and from your people. They shall remain only in the river."

Moses and Aaron left Pharaoh,
and Moses prayed to the Lord about the frogs which he had brought down upon Pharaoh.
 The Lord did according to the prayer of Moses.
 The frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.
 And they were gathered up in heaps, and the whole land smelled of them.


But when Pharaoh saw that they were gone,
 he hardened his heart and would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the Lord had said.

 So God said to Moses: "Tell Aaron to stretch out his hand with his rod and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt."

Moses did so. Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and struck the dust of the earth.
And it became lice on the men and on the beasts throughout all Egypt.
The magicians tried to do the same with their enchantments, but they could not.
 So they said to Pharaoh: "This is the work of God."
