Exodus 8


1  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 Go935 unto413 Pharaoh,6547 and say559 unto413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Let 853 my people5971 go,7971 that they may serve5647 me.

2  And if518 thou859 refuse3986 to let them go,7971 behold,2009 I595 will smite5062 853 all3605 thy borders1366 with frogs:6854

3  And the river2975 shall bring forth frogs abundantly,8317 6854 which shall go up5927 and come935 into thine house,1004 and into thy bedchamber,2315 4904 and upon5921 thy bed,4296 and into the house1004 of thy servants,5650 and upon thy people,5971 and into thine ovens,8574 and into thy kneading troughs:4863

4  And the frogs6854 shall come up5927 both on thee, and upon thy people,5971 and upon all3605 thy servants.5650

5  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 Say559 unto413 Aaron,175 Stretch forth5186 853 thine hand3027 with thy rod4294 over5921 the streams,5104 over5921 the rivers,2975 and over5921 the ponds,98 and cause 853 frogs6854 to come up5927 upon5921 the land776 of Egypt.4714

6  And Aaron175 stretched out5186 853 his hand3027 over5921 the waters4325 of Egypt;4714 and the frogs6854 came up,5927 and covered3680 853 the land776 of Egypt.4714

7  And the magicians2748 did6213 so3651 with their enchantments,3909 and brought up5927 853 frogs6854 upon5921 the land776 of Egypt.4714

8  Then Pharaoh6547 called7121 for Moses4872 and Aaron,175 and said,559 Entreat6279 413 the LORD,3068 that he may take away5493 the frogs6854 from4480 me, and from my people;4480 5971 and I will let 853 the people5971 go,7971 that they may do sacrifice2076 unto the LORD.3068

9  And Moses4872 said559 unto Pharaoh,6547 Glory6286 over5921 me: when4970 shall I entreat6279 for thee, and for thy servants,5650 and for thy people,5971 to destroy3772 the frogs6854 from4480 thee and thy houses,4480 1004 that they may remain7604 in the river2975 only?7535

10  And he said,559 Tomorrow.4279 And he said,559 Be it according to thy word:1697 that4616 thou mayest know3045 that3588 there is none369 like unto the LORD3068 our God.430

11  And the frogs6854 shall depart5493 from4480 thee and from thy houses,4480 1004 and from thy servants,4480 5650 and from thy people;4480 5971 they shall remain7604 in the river2975 only.7535

12  And Moses4872 and Aaron175 went out3318 from4480 5973 Pharaoh:6547 and Moses4872 cried6817 unto413 the LORD3068 because of5921 1697 the frogs6854 which834 he had brought7760 against Pharaoh.6547

13  And the LORD3068 did6213 according to the word1697 of Moses;4872 and the frogs6854 died4191 out of4480 the houses,1004 out of4480 the villages,2691 and out of4480 the fields.7704

14  And they gathered them together6651 853 upon heaps:2563 2563 and the land776 stank.887

15  But when Pharaoh6547 saw7200 that3588 there was1961 respite,7309 he hardened3513 853 his heart,3820 and hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 them; as834 the LORD3068 had said.1696

16  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Say559 unto413 Aaron,175 Stretch out5186 853 thy rod,4294 and smite5221 853 the dust6083 of the land,776 that it may become1961 lice3654 throughout all3605 the land776 of Egypt.4714

17  And they did6213 so;3651 for Aaron175 stretched out5186 853 his hand3027 with his rod,4294 and smote5221 853 the dust6083 of the earth,776 and it became1961 lice3654 in man,120 and in beast;929 all3605 the dust6083 of the land776 became1961 lice3654 throughout all3605 the land776 of Egypt.4714

18  And the magicians2748 did6213 so3651 with their enchantments3909 to bring forth3318 853 lice,3654 but they could3201 not:3808 so there were1961 lice3654 upon man,120 and upon beast.929

19  Then the magicians2748 said559 unto413 Pharaoh,6547 This1931 is the finger676 of God:430 and Pharaoh's6547 heart3820 was hardened,2388 and he hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 them; as834 the LORD3068 had said.1696

20  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Rise up early7925 in the morning,1242 and stand3320 before6440 Pharaoh;6547 lo,2009 he cometh forth3318 to the water;4325 and say559 unto413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Let my people5971 go,7971 that they may serve5647 me.

21  Else,3588 if518 thou wilt not369 let 853 my people5971 go,7971 behold,2009 I will send7971 853 swarms6157 of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants,5650 and upon thy people,5971 and into thy houses:1004 and the houses1004 of the Egyptians4714 shall be full4390 of 853 swarms6157 of flies, and also1571 the ground127 whereon834 5921 they1992 are.

22  And I will sever6395 in that1931 day3117 853 the land776 of Goshen,1657 in5921 which834 my people5971 dwell,5975 that no1115 swarms6157 of flies shall be1961 there;8033 to the end4616 thou mayest know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 in the midst7130 of the earth.776

23  And I will put7760 a division6304 between996 my people5971 and thy people:5971 tomorrow4279 shall this2088 sign226 be.1961

24  And the LORD3068 did6213 so;3651 and there came935 a grievous3515 swarm6157 of flies into the house1004 of Pharaoh,6547 and into his servants'5650 houses,1004 and into all3605 the land776 of Egypt:4714 the land776 was corrupted7843 by reason of4480 6440 the swarm6157 of flies.

25  And Pharaoh6547 called7121 for413 Moses4872 and for Aaron,175 and said,559 Go1980 ye, sacrifice2076 to your God430 in the land.776

26  And Moses4872 said,559 It is not3808 meet3559 so3651 to do;6213 for3588 we shall sacrifice2076 the abomination8441 of the Egyptians4714 to the LORD3068 our God:430 lo,2005 shall we sacrifice2076 853 the abomination8441 of the Egyptians4714 before their eyes,5869 and will they not3808 stone5619 us?

27  We will go1980 three7969 days'3117 journey1870 into the wilderness,4057 and sacrifice2076 to the LORD3068 our God,430 as834 he shall command559 413 us.

28  And Pharaoh6547 said,559 I595 will let you go,7971 that ye may sacrifice2076 to the LORD3068 your God430 in the wilderness;4057 only7535 ye shall not3808 go1980 very far away:7368 7368 entreat6279 for1157 me.

29  And Moses4872 said,559 Behold,2009 I595 go out3318 from4480 5973 thee, and I will entreat6279 413 the LORD3068 that the swarms6157 of flies may depart5493 from Pharaoh,4480 6547 from his servants,4480 5650 and from his people,4480 5971 tomorrow:4279 but7535 let not408 Pharaoh6547 deal deceitfully2048 any more3254 in not1115 letting 853 the people5971 go7971 to sacrifice2076 to the LORD.3068

30  And Moses4872 went out3318 from4480 5973 Pharaoh,6547 and entreated6279 413 the LORD.3068

31  And the LORD3068 did6213 according to the word1697 of Moses;4872 and he removed5493 the swarms6157 of flies from Pharaoh,4480 6547 from his servants,4480 5650 and from his people;4480 5971 there remained7604 not3808 one.259

32  And Pharaoh6547 hardened3513 853 his heart3820 at this2063 time6471 also,1571 neither3808 would he let 853 the people5971 go.7971


1 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν εἰπὸν Ααρων τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου ἔκτεινον τῇ χειρὶ τὴν ῥάβδον σου ἐπὶ τοὺς ποταμοὺς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς διώρυγας καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ἕλη καὶ ἀνάγαγε τοὺς βατράχους

2 καὶ ἐξέτεινεν Ααρων τὴν χεῖρα ἐπὶ τὰ ὕδατα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀνήγαγεν τοὺς βατράχους καὶ ἀνεβιβάσθη ὁ βάτραχος καὶ ἐκάλυψεν τὴν γῆν Αἰγύπτου

3 ἐποίησαν δὲ ὡσαύτως καὶ οἱ ἐπαοιδοὶ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ταῖς φαρμακείαις αὐτῶν καὶ ἀνήγαγον τοὺς βατράχους ἐπὶ γῆν Αἰγύπτου

4 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Φαραω Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων καὶ εἶπεν εὔξασθε περὶ ἐμοῦ πρὸς κύριον καὶ περιελέτω τοὺς βατράχους ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐμοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ τὸν λαόν καὶ θύσωσιν κυρίῳ

5 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς Φαραω τάξαι πρός με πότε εὔξωμαι περὶ σοῦ καὶ περὶ τῶν θεραπόντων σου καὶ περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου ἀφανίσαι τοὺς βατράχους ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ σου καὶ ἐκ τῶν οἰκιῶν ὑμῶν πλὴν ἐν τῷ ποταμῷ ὑπολειφθήσονται

6 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν εἰς αὔριον εἶπεν οὖν ὡς εἴρηκας ἵνα εἰδῇς ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλος πλὴν κυρίου

7 καὶ περιαιρεθήσονται οἱ βάτραχοι ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἐκ τῶν οἰκιῶν ὑμῶν καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἐπαύλεων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν θεραπόντων σου καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ σου πλὴν ἐν τῷ ποταμῷ ὑπολειφθήσονται

8 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων ἀπὸ Φαραω καὶ ἐβόησεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον περὶ τοῦ ὁρισμοῦ τῶν βατράχων ὡς ἐτάξατο Φαραω

9 ἐποίησεν δὲ κύριος καθάπερ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς καὶ ἐτελεύτησαν οἱ βάτραχοι ἐκ τῶν οἰκιῶν καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἐπαύλεων καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἀγρῶν

10 καὶ συνήγαγον αὐτοὺς θιμωνιὰς θιμωνιάς καὶ ὤζεσεν ἡ γῆ

11 ἰδὼν δὲ Φαραω ὅτι γέγονεν ἀνάψυξις ἐβαρύνθη ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσεν αὐτῶν καθάπερ ἐλάλησεν κύριος

12 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν εἰπὸν Ααρων ἔκτεινον τῇ χειρὶ τὴν ῥάβδον σου καὶ πάταξον τὸ χῶμα τῆς γῆς καὶ ἔσονται σκνῖφες ἔν τε τοῖς ἀνθρώποις καὶ ἐν τοῖς τετράποσιν καὶ ἐν πάσῃ γῇ Αἰγύπτου

13 ἐξέτεινεν οὖν Ααρων τῇ χειρὶ τὴν ῥάβδον καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸ χῶμα τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐγένοντο οἱ σκνῖφες ἔν τε τοῖς ἀνθρώποις καὶ ἐν τοῖς τετράποσιν καὶ ἐν παντὶ χώματι τῆς γῆς ἐγένοντο οἱ σκνῖφες ἐν πάσῃ γῇ Αἰγύπτου

14 ἐποιήσαν δὲ ὡσαύτως καὶ οἱ ἐπαοιδοὶ ταῖς φαρμακείαις αὐτῶν ἐξαγαγεῖν τὸν σκνῖφα καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο καὶ ἐγένοντο οἱ σκνῖφες ἐν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις καὶ ἐν τοῖς τετράποσιν

15 εἶπαν οὖν οἱ ἐπαοιδοὶ τῷ Φαραω δάκτυλος θεοῦ ἐστιν τοῦτο καὶ ἐσκληρύνθη ἡ καρδία Φαραω καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσεν αὐτῶν καθάπερ ἐλάλησεν κύριος

16 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ὄρθρισον τὸ πρωὶ καὶ στῆθι ἐναντίον Φαραω καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς ἐξελεύσεται ἐπὶ τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτόν τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐξαπόστειλον τὸν λαόν μου ἵνα μοι λατρεύσωσιν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ βούλῃ ἐξαποστεῖλαι τὸν λαόν μου ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπαποστέλλω ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς θεράποντάς σου καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν σου καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς οἴκους ὑμῶν κυνόμυιαν καὶ πλησθήσονται αἱ οἰκίαι τῶν Αἰγυπτίων τῆς κυνομυίης καὶ εἰς τὴν γῆν ἐφ᾽ ἧς εἰσιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

18 καὶ παραδοξάσω ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τὴν γῆν Γεσεμ ἐφ᾽ ἧς ὁ λαός μου ἔπεστιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἐφ᾽ ἧς οὐκ ἔσται ἐκεῖ ἡ κυνόμυια ἵνα εἰδῇς ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος ὁ κύριος πάσης τῆς γῆς

19 καὶ δώσω διαστολὴν ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ ἐμοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σοῦ λαοῦ ἐν δὲ τῇ αὔριον ἔσται τὸ σημεῖον τοῦτο ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

20 ἐποίησεν δὲ κύριος οὕτως καὶ παρεγένετο ἡ κυνόμυια πλῆθος εἰς τοὺς οἴκους Φαραω καὶ εἰς τοὺς οἴκους τῶν θεραπόντων αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐξωλεθρεύθη ἡ γῆ ἀπὸ τῆς κυνομυίης

21 ἐκάλεσεν δὲ Φαραω Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων λέγων ἐλθόντες θύσατε τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ γῇ

22 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς οὐ δυνατὸν γενέσθαι οὕτως τὰ γὰρ βδελύγματα τῶν Αἰγυπτίων θύσομεν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν ἐὰν γὰρ θύσωμεν τὰ βδελύγματα τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ἐναντίον αὐτῶν λιθοβοληθησόμεθα

23 ὁδὸν τριῶν ἡμερῶν πορευσόμεθα εἰς τὴν ἔρημον καὶ θύσομεν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν καθάπερ εἶπεν ἡμῖν

24 καὶ εἶπεν Φαραω ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω ὑμᾶς καὶ θύσατε κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἀλλ᾽ οὐ μακρὰν ἀποτενεῖτε πορευθῆναι εὔξασθε οὖν περὶ ἐμοῦ πρὸς κύριον

25 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς ὅδε ἐγὼ ἐξελεύσομαι ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ εὔξομαι πρὸς τὸν θεόν καὶ ἀπελεύσεται ἡ κυνόμυια ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν θεραπόντων σου καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου αὔριον μὴ προσθῇς ἔτι Φαραω ἐξαπατῆσαι τοῦ μὴ ἐξαποστεῖλαι τὸν λαὸν θῦσαι κυρίῳ

26 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Μωυσῆς ἀπὸ Φαραω καὶ ηὔξατο πρὸς τὸν θεόν

27 ἐποίησεν δὲ κύριος καθάπερ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς καὶ περιεῖλεν τὴν κυνόμυιαν ἀπὸ Φαραω καὶ τῶν θεραπόντων αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη οὐδεμία

28 καὶ ἐβάρυνεν Φαραω τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ καιροῦ τούτου καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν ἐξαποστεῖλαι τὸν λαόν

1 Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen: Ingredere ad Pharaonem, et dices ad eum: Hæc dicit Dominus: Dimitte populum meum, ut sacrificet mihi:

2 sin autem nolueris dimittere, ecce ego percutiam omnes terminos tuos ranis,

3 et ebulliet fluvius ranas: quæ ascendent, et ingredientur domum tuam, et cubiculum lectuli tui, et super stratum tuum, et in domos servorum tuorum, et in populum tuum, et in furnos tuos, et in reliquias ciborum tuorum:

4 et ad te, et ad populum tuum, et ad omnes servos tuos intrabunt ranæ.

5 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: Dic ad Aaron: Extende manum tuam super fluvios ac super rivos et paludes, et educ ranas super terram Ægypti.

6 Et extendit Aaron manum super aquas Ægypti, et ascenderunt ranæ, operueruntque terram Ægypti.

7 Fecerunt autem et malefici per incantationes suas similiter, eduxeruntque ranas super terram Ægypti.

8 Vocavit autem Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et dixit eis: Orate Dominum ut auferat ranas a me et a populo meo, et dimittam populum ut sacrificet Domino.

9 Dixitque Moyses ad Pharaonem: Constitue mihi quando deprecer pro te, et pro servis tuis, et pro populo tuo, ut abigantur ranæ a te, et a domo tua, et a servis tuis, et a populo tuo: et tantum in flumine remaneant.

10 Qui respondit: Cras. At ille: Juxta, inquit, verbum tuum faciam: ut scias quoniam non est sicut Dominus Deus noster.

11 Et recedent ranæ a te, et a domo tua, et a servis tuis, et a populo tuo: et tantum in flumine remanebunt.

12 Egressique sunt Moyses et Aaron a Pharaone: et clamavit Moyses ad Dominum pro sponsione ranarum quam condixerat Pharaoni.

13 Fecitque Dominus juxta verbum Moysi: et mortuæ sunt ranæ de domibus, et de villis, et de agris.

14 Congregaveruntque eas in immensos aggeres, et computruit terra.

15 Videns autem Pharao quod data esset requies, ingravavit cor suum, et non audivit eos, sicut præceperat Dominus.

16 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: Loquere ad Aaron: Extende virgam tuam, et percute pulverem terræ: et sint sciniphes in universa terra Ægypti.

17 Feceruntque ita. Et extendit Aaron manum, virgam tenens: percussitque pulverem terræ, et facti sunt sciniphes in hominibus, et in jumentis: omnis pulvis terræ versus est in sciniphes per totam terram Ægypti.

18 Feceruntque similiter malefici incantationibus suis, ut educerent sciniphes, et non potuerunt: erantque sciniphes tam in hominibus quam in jumentis.

19 Et dixerunt malefici ad Pharaonem: Digitus Dei est hic; induratumque est cor Pharaonis, et non audivit eos sicut præceperat Dominus.

20 Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen: Consurge diluculo, et sta coram Pharaone: egredietur enim ad aquas: et dices ad eum: Hæc dicit Dominus: Dimitte populum meum ut sacrificet mihi.

21 Quod si non dimiseris eum, ecce ego immittam in te, et in servos tuos, et in populum tuum, et in domos tuas, omne genus muscarum: et implebuntur domus Ægyptiorum muscis diversi generis, et universa terra in qua fuerint.

22 Faciamque mirabilem in die illa terram Gessen, in qua populus meus est, ut non sint ibi muscæ: et scias quoniam ego Dominus in medio terræ.

23 Ponamque divisionem inter populum meum et populum tuum: cras erit signum istud.

24 Fecitque Dominus ita. Et venit musca gravissima in domos Pharaonis et servorum ejus, et in omnem terram Ægypti: corruptaque est terra ab hujuscemodi muscis.

25 Vocavitque Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et ait eis: Ite et sacrificate Deo vestro in terra hac.

26 Et ait Moyses: Non potest ita fieri: abominationes enim Ægyptiorum immolabimus Domino Deo nostro: quod si mactaverimus ea quæ colunt Ægyptii coram eis, lapidibus nos obruent.

27 Viam trium dierum pergemus in solitudinem: et sacrificabimus Domino Deo nostro, sicut præcepit nobis.

28 Dixitque Pharao: Ego dimittam vos ut sacrificetis Domino Deo vestro in deserto: verumtamen longius ne abeatis, rogate pro me.

29 At ait Moyses: Egressus a te, orabo Dominum: et recedet musca a Pharaone, et a servis suis, et a populo ejus cras: verumtamen noli ultra fallere, ut non dimittas populum sacrificare Domino.

30 Egressusque Moyses a Pharaone, oravit Dominum.

31 Qui fecit juxta verbum illius, et abstulit muscas a Pharaone, et a servis suis, et a populo ejus: non superfuit ne una quidem.

32 Et ingravatum est cor Pharaonis, ita ut nec hac quidem vice dimitteret populum.
