Announcement of the Tenth Plague: Death of the Firstborn

1 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Still one plague I will bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterward he will release you from here. At the moment of his releasing, he will certainly drive you completely out from here. 2 Speak in the ears of the people, and let them ask, a man from his neighbor and a woman from her neighbor, [for] objects of silver and objects of gold." 3 And Yahweh gave the people favor in the eyes of Egypt. Also the man Moses [was] very great in the land of Egypt, in the eyes of the servants of Pharaoh and in the eyes of the people. 4 And Moses said, "Thus says Yahweh, 'About the middle of the night I [will] go out through the midst of Egypt, 5 and every firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the slave woman who [is] behind the pair of millstones and every firstborn animal.a 6 And there will be a great cry of distress in all the land of Egypt, the like of which has not been nor will be again.b 7 But against all the {Israelites},c from a man to an animal, a dog will not [even] {bark},d so that you will know that Yahweh makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.' 8 And all of these your servants will come down to me and bow to me, saying, 'Go out, you and all the people who [are] at your feet.' And afterward I will go out." And he went out from Pharaoh {in great anger}.e 9 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh will not listen to you, {so that my wonders may multiply}f in the land of Egypt." 10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not release the {Israelites}g from his land.
