Again the king of Egypt called for Moses. He said, "All of you may go and worship the Lord. You may take your women and children with you, but you must leave your flocks and herds here."
Moses said, "You must let us have animals to use as sacrifices and burnt offerings, because we have to offer them to the Lord our God.
So we must take our animals with us; not a hoof will be left behind. We have to use some of the animals to worship the Lord our God. We won't know exactly what we will need to worship the Lord until we get there."
But the Lord made the king stubborn again, so he refused to let them go.
Then he told Moses, "Get out of here, and don't come again! The next time you see me, you will die."
Then Moses told the king, "I'll do what you say. I will not come to see you again."
