Exodus 5

1
Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: `Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the desert.'"
2
Pharaoh said, "Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go."
3
Then they said, "The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us take a three-day journey into the desert to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the sword."
4
But the king of Egypt said, "Moses and Aaron, why are you taking the people away from their labor? Get back to your work!"
5
Then Pharaoh said, "Look, the people of the land are now numerous, and you are stopping them from working."
6
That same day Pharaoh gave this order to the slave drivers and foremen in charge of the people:
7
"You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw.
8
But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don't reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, `Let us go and sacrifice to our God.'
9
Make the work harder for the men so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies."
10
Then the slave drivers and the foremen went out and said to the people, "This is what Pharaoh says: `I will not give you any more straw.
11
Go and get your own straw wherever you can find it, but your work will not be reduced at all.'"
12
So the people scattered all over Egypt to gather stubble to use for straw.
13
The slave drivers kept pressing them, saying, "Complete the work required of you for each day, just as when you had straw."
14
The Israelite foremen appointed by Pharaoh's slave drivers were beaten and were asked, "Why didn't you meet your quota of bricks yesterday or today, as before?"
15
Then the Israelite foremen went and appealed to Pharaoh: "Why have you treated your servants this way?
16
Your servants are given no straw, yet we are told, `Make bricks!' Your servants are being beaten, but the fault is with your own people."
17
Pharaoh said, "Lazy, that's what you are--lazy! That is why you keep saying, `Let us go and sacrifice to the LORD.'
18
Now get to work. You will not be given any straw, yet you must produce your full quota of bricks."
19
The Israelite foremen realized they were in trouble when they were told, "You are not to reduce the number of bricks required of you for each day."
20
When they left Pharaoh, they found Moses and Aaron waiting to meet them,
21
and they said, "May the LORD look upon you and judge you! You have made us a stench to Pharaoh and his officials and have put a sword in their hand to kill us."
22
Moses returned to the LORD and said, "O Lord, why have you brought trouble upon this people? Is this why you sent me?
23
Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble upon this people, and you have not rescued your people at all."


Exodus 6

1
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country."
2
God also said to Moses, "I am the LORD.
3
I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD I did not make myself known to them.
4
I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, where they lived as aliens.
5
Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, and I have remembered my covenant.
6
"Therefore, say to the Israelites: `I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
7
I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
8
And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the LORD.'"
9
Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and cruel bondage.
10
Then the LORD said to Moses,
11
"Go, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the Israelites go out of his country."
12
But Moses said to the LORD, "If the Israelites will not listen to me, why would Pharaoh listen to me, since I speak with faltering lips ?"
13
Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron about the Israelites and Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he commanded them to bring the Israelites out of Egypt.
14
These were the heads of their families : The sons of Reuben the firstborn son of Israel were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi. These were the clans of Reuben.
15
The sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jakin, Zohar and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman. These were the clans of Simeon.
16
These were the names of the sons of Levi according to their records: Gershon, Kohath and Merari. Levi lived 137 years.
17
The sons of Gershon, by clans, were Libni and Shimei.
18
The sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel. Kohath lived 133 years.
19
The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. These were the clans of Levi according to their records.
20
Amram married his father's sister Jochebed, who bore him Aaron and Moses. Amram lived 137 years.
21
The sons of Izhar were Korah, Nepheg and Zicri.
22
The sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan and Sithri.
23
Aaron married Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab and sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
24
The sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph. These were the Korahite clans.
25
Eleazar son of Aaron married one of the daughters of Putiel, and she bore him Phinehas. These were the heads of the Levite families, clan by clan.
26
It was this same Aaron and Moses to whom the LORD said, "Bring the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions."
27
They were the ones who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt about bringing the Israelites out of Egypt. It was the same Moses and Aaron.
28
Now when the LORD spoke to Moses in Egypt,
29
he said to him, "I am the LORD. Tell Pharaoh king of Egypt everything I tell you."
30
But Moses said to the LORD, "Since I speak with faltering lips, why would Pharaoh listen to me?"


Exodus 7

1
Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.
2
You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country.
3
But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt,
4
he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites.
5
And the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it."
6
Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD commanded them.
7
Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three when they spoke to Pharaoh.
8
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
9
"When Pharaoh says to you, `Perform a miracle,' then say to Aaron, `Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh,' and it will become a snake."
10
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the LORD commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake.
11
Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts:
12
Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs.
13
Yet Pharaoh's heart became hard and he would not listen to them, just as the LORD had said.
14
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is unyielding; he refuses to let the people go.
15
Go to Pharaoh in the morning as he goes out to the water. Wait on the bank of the Nile to meet him, and take in your hand the staff that was changed into a snake.
16
Then say to him, `The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the desert. But until now you have not listened.
17
This is what the LORD says: By this you will know that I am the LORD: With the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water of the Nile, and it will be changed into blood.
18
The fish in the Nile will die, and the river will stink; the Egyptians will not be able to drink its water.'"
19
The LORD said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, `Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt--over the streams and canals, over the ponds and all the reservoirs'--and they will turn to blood. Blood will be everywhere in Egypt, even in the wooden buckets and stone jars."
20
Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded. He raised his staff in the presence of Pharaoh and his officials and struck the water of the Nile, and all the water was changed into blood.
21
The fish in the Nile died, and the river smelled so bad that the Egyptians could not drink its water. Blood was everywhere in Egypt.
22
But the Egyptian magicians did the same things by their secret arts, and Pharaoh's heart became hard; he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said.
23
Instead, he turned and went into his palace, and did not take even this to heart.
24
And all the Egyptians dug along the Nile to get drinking water, because they could not drink the water of the river.
25
Seven days passed after the LORD struck the Nile.


Exodus 8

1
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, `This is what the LORD says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me.
2
If you refuse to let them go, I will plague your whole country with frogs.
3
The Nile will teem with frogs. They will come up into your palace and your bedroom and onto your bed, into the houses of your officials and on your people, and into your ovens and kneading troughs.
4
The frogs will go up on you and your people and all your officials.'"
5
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, `Stretch out your hand with your staff over the streams and canals and ponds, and make frogs come up on the land of Egypt.'"
6
So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land.
7
But the magicians did the same things by their secret arts; they also made frogs come up on the land of Egypt.
8
Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Pray to the LORD to take the frogs away from me and my people, and I will let your people go to offer sacrifices to the LORD."
9
Moses said to Pharaoh, "I leave to you the honor of setting the time for me to pray for you and your officials and your people that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs, except for those that remain in the Nile."
10
"Tomorrow," Pharaoh said. Moses replied, "It will be as you say, so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God.
11
The frogs will leave you and your houses, your officials and your people; they will remain only in the Nile."
12
After Moses and Aaron left Pharaoh, Moses cried out to the LORD about the frogs he had brought on Pharaoh.
13
And the LORD did what Moses asked. The frogs died in the houses, in the courtyards and in the fields.
14
They were piled into heaps, and the land reeked of them.
15
But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said.
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
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
But when the magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. And the gnats were on men and animals.
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.
20
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Get up early in the morning and confront Pharaoh as he goes to the water and say to him, `This is what the LORD says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me.
21
If you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies on you and your officials, on your people and into your houses. The houses of the Egyptians will be full of flies, and even the ground where they are.
22
"`But on that day I will deal differently with the land of Goshen, where my people live; no swarms of flies will be there, so that you will know that I, the LORD, am in this land.
23
I will make a distinction between my people and your people. This miraculous sign will occur tomorrow.'"
24
And the LORD did this. Dense swarms of flies poured into Pharaoh's palace and into the houses of his officials, and throughout Egypt the land was ruined by the flies.
25
Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Go, sacrifice to your God here in the land."
26
But Moses said, "That would not be right. The sacrifices we offer the LORD our God would be detestable to the Egyptians. And if we offer sacrifices that are detestable in their eyes, will they not stone us?
27
We must take a three-day journey into the desert to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God, as he commands us."
28
Pharaoh said, "I will let you go to offer sacrifices to the LORD your God in the desert, but you must not go very far. Now pray for me."
29
Moses answered, "As soon as I leave you, I will pray to the LORD, and tomorrow the flies will leave Pharaoh and his officials and his people. Only be sure that Pharaoh does not act deceitfully again by not letting the people go to offer sacrifices to the LORD."
30
Then Moses left Pharaoh and prayed to the LORD,
31
and the LORD did what Moses asked: The flies left Pharaoh and his officials and his people; not a fly remained.
32
But this time also Pharaoh hardened his heart and would not let the people go.
