The Plague of Frogs

8:1 (7:26)

And YEHOVAH (יהוה) speak to Mosheh:

Go to Paroh  (פּרעה), and say to him,

Thus says YEHOVAH (יהוה),

Let My people go, that they may serve Me.

8:2 (7:27) And if you refuse to let them go, Hinnei, I will smite all your borders with frogs:

8:3 (7:28) And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedroom, and upon your bed, and into the house your servants, and upon your people, and into your ovens (爐灶), and into your  kneading bowls (摶麵盆):

8:4 (7:29) And the frogs shall come up both on you, and upon your people, and upon all your servants.

8:5 (8:1) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) speak to Mosheh:

Say to Aharon, Stretch forth your hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Mitzrayim.

8:6 (8:2) And Aharon stretched out his hand over the waters of Mitzrayim; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Mitzrayim.

8:7 (8:3) And the kharetumei did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Mitzrayim.

8:8 (8:4) Then Paroh  (פּרעה) called for Mosheh and Aharon, and said, Intreat YEHOVAH (יהוה), 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 YEHOVAH (יהוה).

8:9 (8:5) And Mosheh said to Paroh  (פּרעה):

Be pleased to command me when I am to plead for you and for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only?

8:10 (8:6) And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to your word: that you mayest know that there is none like to YEHOVAH (יהוה) Eloheinu.

8:11 (8:7)(v)

And the frogs shall depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people; they shall remain in the river only.

8:12 (8:8) And Mosheh and Aharon went out from Paroh  (פּרעה): and Mosheh cried to YEHOVAH (יהוה) because of the frogs which he had brought against Paroh  (פּרעה).

8:13 (8:9) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) did according to the word of Mosheh; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

8:14 (8:10) And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

8:15 (8:11) But when Paroh  (פּרעה) saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not to them; as YEHOVAH (יהוה) had said.

The Plague of lice - Magician could not do

8:16 (8:12) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) said to Mosheh, Say to Aharon, Stretch out your rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Mitzrayim.

8:17 (8:13) And they did so; for Aharon 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 Mitzrayim.

8:18 (8:14) And the kharetumei did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

8:19 (8:15) Then the kharetumei said to Paroh  (פּרעה), This is the finger of Elohim: and Paroh  (פּרעה)'s heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them, as YEHOVAH (יהוה) had said.

 

Swarms of Flies

 

8:20 (8:16)

And YEHOVAH (יהוה) said to Mosheh:

Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Paroh  (פּרעה); behold, he comes forth to the water; and say to him,

Thus says YEHOVAH (יהוה),

"Let My people go, that they may serve Me. "

8:21 (8:17) Else, if you wilt not let My people go, Hinnei, I will send swarms of flies upon you, and upon your servants, and upon your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Mitzrites shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they [are].

8:22(8:18) And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there, in order that you may know that ANI YEHOVAH (יהוה) in the midst of the land.

8:23 (8:19)(vi)

And I shall put a distinction between My people and your people: tomorrow shall this sign be.

8:24 (8:20) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the beit Paroh  (פּרעה), and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Mitzrayim: the land was corrupted by reason the swarm of flies.

8:25 (8:21) And Paroh  (פּרעה) called for Mosheh and for Aharon, and said, Go , sacrifice to  your Elohim in the land.

8:26 (8:22) And Mosheh said:

It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Mitzrites to YEHOVAH (יהוה) Eloheinu: behold, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Mitzrites before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

8:27(8:23) We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to YEHOVAH (יהוה) Eloheinu, as he shall command us.

8:28(8:24) And Paroh  (פּרעה) said:

"I will let you go, that you may sacrifice YEHOVAH (יהוה) Eloheichem in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away: Intercede for me.

8:29 (8:25) And Mosheh said, Hinnei, I go out from you, and I will make supplication to  YEHOVAH (יהוה) that the swarms of flies may depart from Paroh  (פּרעה), from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Paroh  (פּרעה) deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to YEHOVAH (יהוה).

8:30 (8:26) And Mosheh went out from Paroh  (פּרעה), and interceded with YEHOVAH (יהוה).

8:31(8:27) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) did according to the word of Mosheh; and he removed the swarms of flies from Paroh  (פּרעה), from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

8:32 (8:28) And Paroh  (פּרעה) hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.
