Exodus 8


8:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, Go to Pharaoh, and say to him,
 Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go that they may serve me.
8:2 And if thou shalt refuse to let [them] go, behold, I will
 smite all thy borders with frogs:
8:3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which
 shall go up and come into thy house, and into thy bed-chamber,
 and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon
 thy people, and into thy ovens, and into thy kneading troughs:
8:4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy
 people, and upon all thy servants.
8:5 And the LORD spoke to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth thy
 hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over
 the ponds, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.
8:6 And Aaron stretched his hand over the waters of Egypt; and
 the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
8:7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and
 brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat
 the LORD that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my
 people: and I will let the people go, that they may do
 sacrifice to the LORD.
8:9 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I
 entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to
 destroy the frogs from thee, and thy houses, [that] they may
 remain in the river only?
8:10 And he said, To-morrow. And he said, [Be it] according to
 thy word; that thou mayest know that [there is] none like the
 LORD our God.
8:11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses,
 and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain
 in the river only.
8:12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried
 to the LORD, because of the frogs which he had brought against
 Pharaoh.
8:13 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses: and the
 frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of
 the fields.
8:14 And they gathered them into heaps: and the land was
 offensive in smell.
8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respit, he hardened his
 heart, and hearkened not to them, as the LORD had said.
8:16 And the LORD said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch out thy
 rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice
 throughout all the land of Egypt.
8:17 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.
8:18 And the magicians did so with their inchantments to bring
 forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man and
 upon beast.
8:19 Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, This [is] the finger of
 God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not to
 them; as the LORD had said.
8:20 And the LORD said to Moses, Rise early in the morning, and
 stand before Pharaoh; (lo, he cometh forth to the water) and
 say to him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they
 may serve me.
8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will
 send swarms [of flies] upon thee, and upon thy servants, and
 upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the
 Egyptians shall be full of swarms [of flies], and also the
 ground on which they [are].
8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which
 my people dwell, that no swarms [of flies] shall be there; to
 the end thou mayest know that I [am] the LORD in the midst of
 the earth.
8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people:
 to-morrow shall this sign be.
8:24 And the LORD did so: and there came a grievous swarm [of
 flies] into the house of Pharaoh, and [into] his servants'
 houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted
 by reason of the swarm [of flies].
8:25 And Pharaoh called for Moses, and for Aaron, and said, Go
 ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.
8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall
 sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God:
 Lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before
 their eyes, and will they not stone us?
8:27 We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and
 sacrifice to the LORD our God as he shall command us.
8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice
 to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go
 very far away: entreat for me.
8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will
 entreat the Lord that the swarms [of flies] may depart from
 Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to-morrow: but
 let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more, in not letting the
 people go to sacrifice to the LORD.
8:30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and entreated the LORD:
8:31 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he
 removed the swarms [of flies] from Pharaoh, from his servants,
 and from his people; there remained not one.
8:32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither
 would he let the people go.
