whose hearts he turned1 to hate his people, to conspire2 against his servants.
He sent Moses3 his servant, and Aaron,4 whom he had chosen.527
They performed6 his miraculous signs7 among them, his wonders8 in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness9 and made the land dark-- for had they not rebelled against10 his words?
He turned their waters into blood,11 causing their fish to die.1230
Their land teemed with frogs,13 which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
He spoke,14 and there came swarms of flies,15 and gnats16 throughout their country.
He turned their rain into hail,17 with lightning throughout their land;
he struck down their vines18 and fig trees19 and shattered the trees of their country.
He spoke,20 and the locusts came,21 grasshoppers22 without number;2335
they ate up every green thing in their land, ate up the produce of their soil.
