They did not remember1 his power-- the day he redeemed them from the oppressor,243
the day he displayed his miraculous signs3 in Egypt, his wonders4 in the region of Zoan.
He turned their rivers to blood;5 they could not drink from their streams.
He sent swarms of flies6 that devoured them, and frogs7 that devastated them.
He gave their crops to the grasshopper,8 their produce to the locust.947
He destroyed their vines with hail10 and their sycamore-figs with sleet.
He gave over their cattle to the hail, their livestock11 to bolts of lightning.
He unleashed against them his hot anger,12 his wrath, indignation and hostility-- a band of destroying angels.1350
He prepared a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death but gave them over to the plague.
He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt,14 the firstfruits of manhood in the tents of Ham.1552
But he brought his people out like a flock;16 he led them like sheep through the desert.
