1 And Jehovah said unto Moses, I will bring yet one more plague upon Pharaoh and
upon Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will be
driving to drive you out from here.
2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every
woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold.
3 And Jehovah gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians. Moreover the man
Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the eyes of Pharaoh's servants and in the
eyes of the people.
4 And Moses said, Thus says Jehovah: About midnight I will go out into the midst of
5 and every firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits
on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill, and every
firstborn of the animals.
6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it
before, nor shall be like it again.
7 But against the children of Israel shall not a single dog move its tongue, against man or
beast, that you may know that Jehovah makes a separation between Egypt and Israel.
8 And all these your servants shall come down to me and prostrate themselves to me,
saying, Get out, you and all the people at your feet! After that I will go out. And he went
out from Pharaoh in burning anger.
9 And Jehovah said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, so that My signs may be
multiplied in the land of Egypt.
10 And Moses and Aaron did all these signs before Pharaoh; and Jehovah hardened
Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
