Then the LORDsaid to Moses, "1See, I make you as God to Pharaoh, and your brotherAaron shall be your prophet.
"You shall speakall that I command you, and your brother2Aaron shall speak to Pharaoh that he let the sons of Israelgo out of his land.
"But 3I will hardenPharaoh'sheart that I may 4multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.
"When 5Pharaoh does not listen to you, then I will lay My hand on Egypt and 6bring out My hosts, My people the sons of Israel, from the land of Egypt by 7greatjudgments.
"8The Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I 9stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst."
So Moses and Aarondid it; 10as the LORDcommanded them, thus they did.
7Moses was 11eightyyearsold and Aaronaeighty-three, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
