And the houses of the egyptians shall be ful of flyes, and the ground wheron they are.

Exodus 8:27 we wyll therfore goo thre dayes iourney into the deserte, and sacrifice vnto the Lorde oure God as he hathe commaunded vs. Exodus 8:28 And Pharao said: I wyl let you goo, that ye may do sacrifice vnto the lord your God in the wildernes: onely go not farre awaye, & se that ye pray for me. Exodus 8:29 And Moses sayed: beholde, I wyll go out frome the and praye vnto the Lord, and the flyes shall depart from Pharao & from his seruauntes and from his people to morrow. But let Pharao from hence forth deceyue no more, that he wyll not lette the people go to sacrifice vnto the Lord. Exodus 8:30 And Moses went out from Pharao and prayed vnto the Lorde.
