King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded ; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 20 Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded. He raised his staff in the presence of Pharaoh and his officials and struck the water of the Nile, and all the water was changed into blood.
21 And the fish that was in the river died ; and the river stank , and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 21 The fish in the Nile died, and the river smelled so bad that the Egyptians could not drink its water. Blood was everywhere in Egypt.
22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened , neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said . 22 But the Egyptian magicians did the same things by their secret arts, and Pharaoh's heart became hard; he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said.
23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also. 23 Instead, he turned and went into his palace, and did not take even this to heart.
24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink ; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 24 And all the Egyptians dug along the Nile to get drinking water, because they could not drink the water of the river.
25 And seven days were fulfilled , after that the LORD had smitten the river. 25 Seven days passed after the LORD struck the Nile.
