The LORD said to Moses, "I'll bring one more disaster on Pharaoh and on Egypt. After that, he'll let you go from here. In fact, when he lets you go, he'll eagerly chase you out of here.
Tell every man to ask his neighbor and every woman to ask her neighbor for all their silver and gold jewelry."
The LORD made sure that the Egyptians were kind to the Hebrew people. In addition, Pharaoh's officials and the Egyptian people even came to honor Moses as a great and important man in the land.
Moses said, "This is what the LORD says: At midnight I'll go throughout Egypt.
Every oldest child in the land of Egypt will die, from the oldest child of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the oldest child of the servant woman by the millstones, and all the first offspring of the animals.
Then a terrible cry of agony will echo through the whole land of Egypt unlike any heard before or that ever will be again.
