ADONAI said to Moshe, "I'm going to bring still one more plague on Pharaoh and Egypt, and after that he will let you leave here. When he does let you go, he will throw you out completely!
Now tell the people that every man is to ask his neighbor and every woman her neighbor for gold and silver jewelry."
ADONAI made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people. Moreover, Moshe was regarded by Pharaoh's servants and the people as a very great man in the land of Egypt.
Moshe said, "Here is what ADONAI says: 'About midnight I will go out into Egypt,
and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the slave-girl at the handmill, and all the firstborn of the livestock.
There will be a horrendous wailing throughout all the land of Egypt - there has never been another like it, and there never will be again.
