02-7:3††††† But I will harden Pharaohs heart, and multiplie my miracles and my wonders in the lande of Egypt.

02-7:4††††† And Pharaoh shall not hearken vnto you, that I may lay mine hand vpon Egypt, and bring out myne armies, euen my people, the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, by great iudgements.

02-7:5††††† Then the Egyptians shall knowe that I am the Lord, when I stretch foorth mine hand vpon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

02-7:6††††† So Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, euen so did they.

02-7:7††††† (Nowe Moses was foure score yeere olde, and Aaron foure score and three, when they spake vnto Pharaoh)

02-7:8††††† And the Lorde had spoken vnto Moses and Aaron, saying,

02-7:9††††† If Pharaoh speake vnto you, saying, Shewe a miracle for you, then thou shalt say vnto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shalbe turned into a serpent.

02-7:10†††† Then went Moses and Aaron vnto Pharaoh, and did euen as the Lord had commaunded: and Aaron cast forth his rod before Pharaoh and before his seruants, & it was turned into a serpent.

02-7:11†††† Then Pharaoh called also for the wise men and sorcerers: and those charmers also of Egypt did in like maner with their enchantmens,

02-7:12†††† For they cast downe euery man his rod, & they were turned into serpents: but Aarons rodde deuoured their rods.

02-7:13†††† So Pharaohs heart was hardened, and hee hearkened not to them, as the Lorde had saide.

02-7:14†††† The Lorde then saide vnto Moses, Pharaohs heart is obstinate, hee refuseth to let the people goe.

02-7:15†††† Goe vnto Pharaoh in the morning, (loe, he will come forth vnto the water) and thou shalt stand and meete him by the riuers brinke, and the rod, which was turned into a serpent, shalt thou take in thine hand.

02-7:16†††† And thou shalt say vnto him, The Lorde God of the Ebrewes hath sent me vnto thee, saying, Let my people goe, that they may serue mee in the wildernesse: and beholde, hitherto thou wouldest not heare.

02-7:17†††† Thus saith the Lorde, In this shalt thou know that I am the Lord: behold, I wil smite with the rodde that is in mine hand vpon the water that is in the riuer, and it shalbe turned to blood.

02-7:18†††† And the fish that is in the riuer shall dye, and the riuer shall stinke, and it shall grieue the Egyptians to drinke of the water of the riuer.

02-7:19†††† The Lord then spake to Moses, Say vnto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand ouer the waters of Egypt, ouer their streames, ouer their riuers, & ouer their pondes,, and ouer all pooles of their waters, and they shalbe blood, and there shalbe blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and of stone.

02-7:20†††† So Moses and Aaron did euen as the Lord commaunded: and hee lift vp the rodde, and smote the water that was in the riuer in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his seruants: and all the water that was in the riuer, was turned into blood.

02-7:21†††† And the fish that was in the ryuer dyed, & the riuer stanke: so that the Egyptians could not drinke of the water of the riuer: and there was blood throughout all the lande of Egypt.

02-7:22†††† And the enchanters of Egypt did likewise with their sorceries: and the heart of Phraoh was hardened: so that he did not hearken vnto them, as the Lord had sayde.

02-7:23†††† Then Pharaoh returned, and went againe into his house, neither did this yet enter into his heart.

02-7:24†††† All the Egyptians then digged rounde about the riuer for waters to drinke: for they could not drinke of the water of the riuer.

02-7:25†††† And this continued fully seuen dayes after the Lord had smitten the riuer.

02-8:1††††† Afterward the Lorde sayde vnto Moses, Goe vnto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lorde, Let my people goe, that they may serue me:

02-8:2††††† And if thou wilt not let them goe, beholde, I will smite all thy countrey with frogges:

02-8:3††††† And the riuer shal scral ful of frogges, which shall goe vp and come into thine house, and into thy chamber, where thou sleepest, and vpon thy bed, and into the house of thy seruants, and vpon thy people, and into thine ouens, and into thy kneading troughes.

02-8:4††††† Yea, the frogges shall climbe vp vpon thee, and on thy people, and vpon all thy seruants.

02-8:5††††† Also the Lord said vnto Moses, Say thou vnto Aaron, Stretch out thine hande with thy rod vpon the streames, vpon the riuers, and vpon the ponds, and cause frogs to come vp vpon the land of Egypt.

02-8:6††††† Then Aaron stretched out his hand vpon the waters of Egypt, and the frogges came vp, and couered the land of Egypt.

02-8:7††††† And the sorcerers did likewise with their sorceries, and brought frogges vp vpon the land of Egypt.

02-8:8††††† Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Pray ye vnto the Lord, that hee may take away the frogges from mee, and from my people, and I will let the people goe, that they may doe sacrifice vnto the Lord.

02-8:9††††† And Moses said vnto Pharaoh, Concerning me, euen command when I shall pray for thee, and for thy seruants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogges from thee and from thine houses, that they may remaine in the riuer only.

02-8:10†††† Then he said, To morowe; he answered, Be it as thou hast said, that thou maiest know, that there is none like vnto the Lord our God.

02-8:11†††† So the frogges shall depart from thee, and from thine houses, and from thy seruantes, and from thy people: onely they shall remaine in the riuer.

02-8:12†††† Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cryed vnto the Lorde concerning the frogges, which hee had sent vnto Pharaoh.

02-8:13†††† And the Lorde did according to the saying of Moses: so the frogges died in the houses, in the townes, and in the fieldes.

02-8:14†††† And they gathered the together by heaps, and the land stanke of them.

02-8:15†††† But when Pharaoh sawe that hee had rest giuen him, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not vnto them, as the Lord had said.

02-8:16†††† Againe the Lord sayd vnto Moses, Say vnto Aaron, Stretche out the rod, and smite the dust of the earth, that it may bee turned to lyce throughout all the land of Egypt.

02-8:17†††† And they did so: for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth: and lyce came vpon man and vpon beast: all the dust of the earth was lyce throughout all the land of Egypt.

02-8:18†††† Nowe the enchanters assaied likewise with their enchantments to bring forth lyce, but they could not. So the lyce were vpon man & vpon beast.

02-8:19†††† Then saide the enchanters vnto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God. But Pharaohs heart remained obstinate, and hee hearkened not vnto them, as the Lorde had said.

02-8:20†††† Moreouer the Lorde sayd to Moses, Rise vp earely in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh (lo, hee will come forth vnto the water) and say vnto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serue me.

02-8:21†††† Els, if thou wilt not let my people goe, behold, I will send swarmes of flies both vpon thee, and vpon thy seruants, and vpon thy people, and into thine houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shalbe full of swarmes of flies, and the ground also whereon they are.

02-8:22†††† But ye land of Goshe, where my people are, wil I cause to be wonderfull in that day, so that no swarmes of flies shalbe there, that thou maiest know that I am the Lorde in the middes of the earth.

02-8:23†††† And I will make a deliuerance of my people from thy people: to morowe shall this miracle be.

02-8:24†††† And the Lorde did so: for there came great swarmes of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his seruants houses, so that through all the lande of Egypt, the earth was corrupt by the swarmes of flies.

02-8:25†††† Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and saide, Goe, doe sacrifice vnto your God in this lande.

02-8:26†††† But Moses answered, It is not meete to do so: for then we shoulde offer vnto the Lorde our God that, which is an abomination vnto the Egyptians. Loe, can we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and they not stone vs?

02-8:27†††† Let vs go three dayes iourney in the desert, and sacrifice vnto the Lord our God, as he hath commanded vs.

02-8:28†††† And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice vnto the Lord your God in the wildernesse: but goe not farre away, pray for me.

02-8:29†††† And Moses said, Behold, I will go out from thee, and pray vnto the Lord, that the swarmes of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his seruants, and from his people to morowe: but let Pharaoh from hencefoorth deceiue no more, in not suffering the people to sacrifice vnto the Lorde.

02-8:30†††† So Moses went out from Pharaoh & prayed vnto the Lorde.

02-8:31†††† And the Lord did according to the saying of Moses, and the swarmes of flies departed from Pharaoh, from his seruants, and from his people, and there remained not one.

02-8:32†††† Yet Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, and did not let the people goe.
