12 For they caft down every man his rod, and they became ferpents; but Aaron's rod fwallowed up their rods. 13 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had faid.

3 And the river fhall bring forth frogs abundantly, which fhall go up, and come into thine houfe, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy fervants, and 14 And the LORD faid unto Mo-upon thy people, and into thine ovens, fes, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, hef and into thy kneading troughs: refufeth to let the people go.

17 Thus faith the LORD, In this thou fhalt know that I am the LORD behold, I will fmite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they fhall be turned to blood.

18 And the fish that is in the river fhall die, and the river fhall ftink; and the Egyptians fhall lothe to drink of the water of the river."

7 And the magicians did fo with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

8 Then Pharaoh called for Mofes, and Aaron, and faid, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do facrifice unto the LORD.

9 And Muies faid unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when fhall 1 intreat for thee, and for thy fervants, and for thy people, to deftroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

20 And Mofes and Aaron did fo, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and fmote the waters that were in the river, in the fight of Pha rach, and in the fight of his fervants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.

21 And the fifh that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 And the magicians of Egypt did fo with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had faid.

23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his houfe, neither did he fet his heart to this álfo.

24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

II And the frogs fhall depart from thee, and from thy houfes, and from thy fervants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

12 And Mofes and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Mofes cried unto the LORD, because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

13 And the LORD did according to the word of Mofes; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

14 And they gatheredthem together upon heaps; and the land itank.

15 But when Pharaoh faw that there was refpite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had faid.

16 And the Lono faid unto Mofes, Say ento Aaron, Stretch out the rod, and fmite the duft of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

17 And they did fo: for Aaron treiched out his hand with his roo,
