King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 16 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, 'Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the ground,' and throughout the land of Egypt the dust will become gnats."
17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 17 They did this, and when Aaron stretched out his hand with the staff and struck the dust of the ground, gnats came upon men and animals. All the dust throughout the land of Egypt became gnats.
18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast. 18 But when the magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. And the gnats were on men and animals.
19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened , and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said . 19 The magicians said to Pharaoh, "This is the finger of God." But Pharaoh's heart was hard and he would not listen, just as the LORD had said.
