`And I harden the heart of Pharaoh, and have multiplied My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt,
and Pharaoh doth not hearken, and I have put My hand on Egypt, and have brought out My hosts, My people, the sons of Israel, from the land of Egypt by great judgments;
and the Egyptians have known that I [am] Jehovah, in My stretching out My hand against Egypt; and I have brought out the sons of Israel from their midst.'
And Moses doth -- Aaron also -- as Jehovah commanded them; so have they done;
and Moses [is] a son of eighty years, and Aaron [is] a son of eighty and three years, in their speaking unto Pharaoh.
And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
`When Pharaoh speaketh unto you, saying, Give for yourselves a wonder; then thou hast said unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast before Pharaoh -- it becometh a monster.'
And Moses goeth in -- Aaron also -- unto Pharaoh, and they do so as Jehovah hath commanded; and Aaron casteth his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it becometh a monster.
And Pharaoh also calleth for wise men, and for sorcerers; and the scribes of Egypt, they also, with their flashings, do so,
and they cast down each his rod, and they become monsters, and the rod of Aaron swalloweth their rods;
and the heart of Pharaoh is strong, and he hath not hearkened unto them, as Jehovah hath spoken.
