1aThen the LORDsaid to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, 'Thussays the LORD, "1Let My peoplego, that they may serve Me.
"But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite your wholeterritory with frogs.
"The Nile will 2swarm with frogs, which will come up and go into your house and into your bedroom and on your bed, and into the houses of your servants and on your people, and into your ovens and into your kneadingbowls.
"So the frogs will come up on you and your people and all your servants.""'
5bThen the LORDsaid to Moses, "Say to Aaron, '3Stretch out your hand with your staffover the rivers, over the cstreams and over the pools, and make frogscome up on the land of Egypt.' "
So Aaronstretched out his handover the waters of Egypt, and the d4frogscame up and covered the land of Egypt.
75The emagiciansdidfthe same with their secretarts, gmaking frogscome up on the land of Egypt.
Then Pharaoh6called for Moses and Aaron and said, "7Entreat the LORD that He remove the frogs from me and from my people ; and 8I will let the peoplego, that they may sacrifice to the LORD."
9Mosessaid to Pharaoh, "hThe honor is yours to tell me: when shall I entreat for you and your servants and your people, that the frogs be idestroyed from you and your houses, that they may be leftonly in the Nile ?"
Then he said, "Tomorrow." So he said, "May it be according to your word, that you may know that there is 9noone like the LORD our God.
"The 10frogs will depart from you and your houses and your servants and your people ; they will be leftonly in the Nile."
Then Moses and Aaronwent out from Pharaoh, and 11Mosescried to the LORDconcerning the frogswhich He had jinflicted upon Pharaoh.
The LORDdid according to the word of Moses, and the frogsdied out of the houses, the courts, and the fields.
So they piled them in heaps, and the landkbecamefoul.
But when Pharaohsaw that there was relief, he lhardened his heart and 12did not listen to them, as the LORD had said.
