Pray to the LORD, for we have had enough thunder and hail. I will let you go; you don't have to stay any longer."
Pharaoh said, "The LORD be with you--if I let you go, along with your women and children! Clearly you are bent on evil.
But Moses said, "You must allow us to have sacrifices and burnt offerings to present to the LORD our God.
