Israel also came into Egypt *
and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
And he increased his people exceedingly *
and made them stronger than their enemies;
Whose heart turned, so that they hated his people *
and dealt untruly with his servants.
Then sent he Moses his servant *
and Aaron whom he had chosen.
And these shewed his tokens among them *
and wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and it was dark *
and they were not obedient unto his word.
He turned their waters into blood *
and slew their fish.
Their land brought forth frogs *
yea, even in their kings’ chambers.
He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies *
and lice in all their quarters.
He gave them hail-stones for rain *
and flames of fire in their land.
He smote their vines also and fig-trees *
and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts.
He spake the word, and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumerable *
and did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
He smote all the first-born in their land *
even the chief of all their strength.
He brought them forth also with silver and gold *
there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
Egypt was glad at their departing *
for they were afraid of them.
He spread out a cloud to be a covering *
and fire to give light in the night-season.
At their desire he brought quails *
and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out *
so that rivers ran in the dry places.
For why? he remembered his holy promise *
and Abraham his servant.
And he brought forth his people with joy *
and his chosen with gladness;
And gave them the lands of the heathen *
and they took the labours of the people in possession;
That they might keep his statutes *
and observe his laws.
