God said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and tell him, 'God, the God of the Hebrews, says: Release my people so they can worship me.
If you refuse to release them and continue to hold on to them,
I'm giving you fair warning: God will come down hard on your livestock out in the fields - horses, donkeys, camels, cattle, sheep - striking them with a severe disease.
God will draw a sharp line between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt. Not one animal that belongs to the Israelites will die.'"
Then God set the time: "Tomorrow God will do this thing."
And the next day God did it. All the livestock of Egypt died, but not one animal of the Israelites died.
