Frogs are sent.
Exodus 8:1 The Lorde spake vnto Moyses, go vnto Pharao & tell hym, Thus sayeth the Lord: Let my people go, that they may serue me. Exodus 8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, beholde, I wyll smyte all thy borders with frogges: Exodus 8:3 And the riuer shall scraule with frogges, whiche shall go vp and come into thine house, and into thy priuie chaumber where thou slepest, and vpon thy bed, & into the house of thy seruauntes, and vpon thy people, and into thyne ouens, and vpon al thy vitayles in store: Exodus 8:4 And the frogges shall come vp vpon thee, and on thy people, and vpon all thy seruauntes.
Exodus 8:5 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses: say vnto Aaron, stretch foorth thyne hande with thy rod ouer the streames, ouer the ryuers, and ouer the pondes: and cause frogges to come vp vpon the lande of Egypt. Exodus 8:6 And Aaron stretched his hande ouer ye waters of Egypt, & the frogges came vp and couered the lande of Egypt. Exodus 8:7 And the sorcerers did likewise with their sorcerie, and brought frogges vp vpon the lande of Egypt.
Pharaoh sueth Moses,
Exodus 8:8 Then Pharao called for Moyses and Aaron, and sayde: pray ye vnto the Lorde that he maye take away the frogges from me, and from my people: and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice vnto the Lorde. Exodus 8:9 And Moyses sayde vnto Pharao: glory herein because of me, and [appoynt] when I shall pray for thee, and for thy seruauntes, and for thy people to dryue away the frogges from thee and thy houses: and they may remayne but in the ryuer onlye. Exodus 8:10 He sayd: to morowe. And he sayde, euen as thou hast said: that thou mayest knowe that there is none like vnto the Lorde our God. Exodus 8:11 And so the frogges shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, from thy seruauntes, and from thy people: and shall remayne in the ryuer onlye.
and Moses by prayer removeth them away.
Exodus 8:12 Moyses and Aaron went out from Pharao, and Moyses cryed vnto the Lorde, as touching the frogges whiche he had brought against Pharao. Exodus 8:13 And the Lorde dyd accordyng to the saying of Moyses: and the frogges dyed out of the houses, out of the courtes and fieldes. Exodus 8:14 And they gathered them together vpon heapes, and the lande had an euill smell [through them.] Exodus 8:15 But when Pharao sawe that he had rest geuen him, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not vnto them, as the Lorde had sayde.
The dust is turned into lice, which the magicians could not do.
Exodus 8:16 And the Lord sayd vnto Moses, Say vnto Aaron: Stretche out thy rod, and smyte the dust of the lande, that it may be [turned] to lyce throughout all the lande of Egypt. Exodus 8:17 And they did so: for Aaron stretched out his hande with his rodde, and smote the dust of the earth, whiche turned to lyce in man and beast: so that all the dust of the lande [turned] to lyce throughout all the lande of Egypt. Exodus 8:18 And the enchaunters assayed likewise with their enchauntmetes to bring foorth lyce, but they coulde not: and the lyce were both vpon men & beastes. Exodus 8:19 Then said the enchaunters vnto Pharao: this is the finger of God. And Pharaos heart remayned obstinate, and he hearkened not vnto them, euen as the Lorde had sayde.
The swarms of flies.
Exodus 8:20 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: ryse vp early in the mornyng, and stand before Pharao, lo, he wyll come foorth vnto the water, and thou shalt say vnto him, Thus sayeth the Lorde: Let my people go that they may serue me. Exodus 8:21 Els if thou wylt not let my people go, behold, I will send all maner of flyes both vpon thee and thy seruauntes, and thy people, & into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shalbe full of flyes, and the ground wheron they are. Exodus 8:22 And the land of Gosen where my people are, will I cause to be wonderfull in that day, so that there shal no flyes be there: wherby thou shalt know that I am the Lorde in the myddest of the earth. Exodus 8:23 And I will put a diuision betweene my people and thine: and euen to morowe shall this miracle be done. Exodus 8:24 And the Lord dyd euen so, & there came an intollerable swarme of flyes into the house of Pharao, and into his seruauntes houses, and into all the land of Egypt: and the land was corrupt with these flyes.
Pharaoh inclineth to let the people go,
Exodus 8:25 And Pharao called for Moyses and Aaron, and sayd: Go, and do sacrifice vnto your God in this lande. Exodus 8:26 And Moyses aunswered, It is not meete that we so do: for we must offer vnto the Lorde our God, that [which is] an abhomination vnto the Egyptians. Lo, if we sacrifice that which is an abhomination vnto the Egyptians before theyr eyes, wyl they not stone vs? Exodus 8:27 We wyll go three dayes iourney into the desert, and sacrifice vnto the Lorde our God, as he hath comaunded vs. Exodus 8:28 And Pharao sayd: I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice vnto the Lorde your God in the wyldernesse, but go not farre away: pray for me. Exodus 8:29 And Moyses sayd, beholde, I will go out from thee, and pray vnto the Lord, that the flyes may depart from Pharao, and from his seruauntes, and from his people to morowe: but let Pharao from hence foorth deale deceiptfully no more, that he wyll not let the people go, to sacrifice vnto the Lorde: Exodus 8:30 And Moyses went out from Pharao, and prayed vnto the Lorde. Exodus 8:31 And the Lorde did accordyng to the saying of Moyses: and the flyes departed from Pharao, and from his seruauntes, and from his people: and there remayned not one.
but yet is hardened.
Exodus 8:32 And Pharao hardened his heart once more at this time, and dyd not let the people go.
