The Fifth Plague: Death of Livestock

1 Then the Lord said to Moses, "Go in to Pharaoh and say to him: This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let My people go, so that they may worship Me.
2 But if you refuse to let [them] go and keep holding them,
3 then the Lord's hand will bring a severe plague against your livestock in the field-the horses, donkeys, camels, herds, and flocks.
4 But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, so that nothing of all that the Israelites own will die."
5 And the Lord set a time, saying, "Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land."
6 The Lord did this the next day. All the Egyptian livestock died, but none among the Israelite livestock died.
7 Pharaoh sent [messengers] who saw that not a single one of the Israelite livestock was dead. But Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the people go.
