1The LORD answered Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.1וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶל־ מֹשֶׁ֔ה רְאֵ֛ה נְתַתִּ֥יךָ אֱלֹהִ֖ים לְפַרְעֹ֑ה וְאַהֲרֹ֥ן אָחִ֖יךָ יִהְיֶ֥ה נְבִיאֶֽךָ׃
2You are to speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron must declare it to Pharaoh so that he will let the Israelites go out of his land.2אַתָּ֣ה תְדַבֵּ֔ר אֵ֖ת כָּל־ אֲשֶׁ֣ר אֲצַוֶּ֑ךָּ וְאַהֲרֹ֤ן אָחִ֙יךָ֙ יְדַבֵּ֣ר אֶל־ פַּרְעֹ֔ה וְשִׁלַּ֥ח אֶת־ בְּנֵֽי־ יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מֵאַרְצֽוֹ׃
3But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and though I will multiply My signs and wonders in the land of Egypt,3וַאֲנִ֥י אַקְשֶׁ֖ה אֶת־ לֵ֣ב פַּרְעֹ֑ה וְהִרְבֵּיתִ֧י אֶת־ אֹתֹתַ֛י וְאֶת־ מוֹפְתַ֖י בְּאֶ֥רֶץ מִצְרָֽיִם׃
4Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will lay My hand on Egypt, and by mighty acts of judgment I will bring the divisions of My people the Israelites out of the land of Egypt.4וְלֹֽא־ יִשְׁמַ֤ע אֲלֵכֶם֙ פַּרְעֹ֔ה וְנָתַתִּ֥י אֶת־ יָדִ֖י בְּמִצְרָ֑יִם וְהוֹצֵאתִ֨י אֶת־ צִבְאֹתַ֜י אֶת־ עַמִּ֤י בְנֵֽי־ יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֔יִם בִּשְׁפָטִ֖ים גְּדֹלִֽים׃
5And the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD, when I stretch out My hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out from among them.”5וְיָדְע֤וּ מִצְרַ֙יִם֙ כִּֽי־ אֲנִ֣י יְהוָ֔ה בִּנְטֹתִ֥י אֶת־ יָדִ֖י עַל־ מִצְרָ֑יִם וְהוֹצֵאתִ֥י אֶת־ בְּנֵֽי־ יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מִתּוֹכָֽם׃
6So Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded them.6וַיַּ֥עַשׂ מֹשֶׁ֖ה וְאַהֲרֹ֑ן כַּאֲשֶׁ֨ר צִוָּ֧ה יְהוָ֛ה אֹתָ֖ם כֵּ֥ן עָשֽׂוּ׃
7Moses was eighty years old and Aaron was eighty-three when they spoke to Pharaoh.7וּמֹשֶׁה֙ בֶּן־ שְׁמֹנִ֣ים שָׁנָ֔ה וְאַֽהֲרֹ֔ן בֶּן־ שָׁלֹ֥שׁ וּשְׁמֹנִ֖ים שָׁנָ֑ה בְּדַבְּרָ֖ם אֶל־ פַּרְעֹֽה׃ פ
8The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,8וַיֹּ֣אמֶר יְהוָ֔ה אֶל־ מֹשֶׁ֥ה וְאֶֽל־ אַהֲרֹ֖ן לֵאמֹֽר׃
9“When Pharaoh tells you, ‘Perform a miracle,’ you are to say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh,’ and it will become a serpent.”9כִּי֩ יְדַבֵּ֨ר אֲלֵכֶ֤ם פַּרְעֹה֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר תְּנ֥וּ לָכֶ֖ם מוֹפֵ֑ת וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֶֽל־ אַהֲרֹ֗ן קַ֧ח אֶֽת־ מַטְּךָ֛ וְהַשְׁלֵ֥ךְ לִפְנֵֽי־ פַרְעֹ֖ה יְהִ֥י לְתַנִּֽין׃
10So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the LORD had commanded. Aaron threw his staff down before Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a serpent.10וַיָּבֹ֨א מֹשֶׁ֤ה וְאַהֲרֹן֙ אֶל־ פַּרְעֹ֔ה וַיַּ֣עַשׂוּ‪‬ כֵ֔ן כַּאֲשֶׁ֖ר צִוָּ֣ה יְהוָ֑ה וַיַּשְׁלֵ֨ךְ אַהֲרֹ֜ן אֶת־ מַטֵּ֗הוּ לִפְנֵ֥י פַרְעֹ֛ה וְלִפְנֵ֥י עֲבָדָ֖יו וַיְהִ֥י לְתַנִּֽין׃
11But Pharaoh called the wise men and sorcerers and magicians of Egypt, and they also did the same things by their magic arts.11וַיִּקְרָא֙ גַּם־ פַּרְעֹ֔ה לַֽחֲכָמִ֖ים וְלַֽמְכַשְּׁפִ֑ים וַיַּֽעֲשׂ֨וּ גַם־ הֵ֜ם חַרְטֻמֵּ֥י מִצְרַ֛יִם בְּלַהֲטֵיהֶ֖ם כֵּֽן׃
12Each one threw down his staff, and it became a serpent. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up the other staffs.12וַיַּשְׁלִ֙יכוּ֙ אִ֣ישׁ מַטֵּ֔הוּ וַיִּהְי֖וּ לְתַנִּינִ֑ם וַיִּבְלַ֥ע מַטֵּֽה־ אַהֲרֹ֖ן אֶת־ מַטֹּתָֽם׃
13Still, Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had said.13וַיֶּחֱזַק֙ לֵ֣ב פַּרְעֹ֔ה וְלֹ֥א שָׁמַ֖ע אֲלֵהֶ֑ם כַּאֲשֶׁ֖ר דִּבֶּ֥ר יְהוָֽה׃ פ
14Then the LORD said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn; he refuses to let the people go.14וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶל־ מֹשֶׁ֔ה כָּבֵ֖ד לֵ֣ב פַּרְעֹ֑ה מֵאֵ֖ן לְשַׁלַּ֥ח הָעָֽם׃
15Go to Pharaoh in the morning as you see him walking out to the water. Wait on the bank of the Nile to meet him, and take in your hand the staff that was changed into a snake.15לֵ֣ךְ אֶל־ פַּרְעֹ֞ה בַּבֹּ֗קֶר הִנֵּה֙ יֹצֵ֣א הַמַּ֔יְמָה וְנִצַּבְתָּ֥ לִקְרָאת֖וֹ עַל־ שְׂפַ֣ת הַיְאֹ֑ר וְהַמַּטֶּ֛ה אֲשֶׁר־ נֶהְפַּ֥ךְ לְנָחָ֖שׁ תִּקַּ֥ח בְּיָדֶֽךָ׃
16Then say to him, ‘The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to tell you: Let My people go, so that they may worship Me in the wilderness. But you have not listened until now.16וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֵלָ֗יו יְהוָ֞ה אֱלֹהֵ֤י הָעִבְרִים֙ שְׁלָחַ֤נִי אֵלֶ֙יךָ֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר שַׁלַּח֙ אֶת־ עַמִּ֔י וְיַֽעַבְדֻ֖נִי בַּמִּדְבָּ֑ר וְהִנֵּ֥ה לֹא־ שָׁמַ֖עְתָּ עַד־ כֹּֽה׃
17This is what the LORD says: By this you will know that I am the LORD. Behold, with the staff in my hand I will strike the water of the Nile, and it will turn to blood.17כֹּ֚ה אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֔ה בְּזֹ֣את תֵּדַ֔ע כִּ֖י אֲנִ֣י יְהוָ֑ה הִנֵּ֨ה אָנֹכִ֜י מַכֶּ֣ה ׀ בַּמַּטֶּ֣ה אֲשֶׁר־ בְּיָדִ֗י עַל־ הַמַּ֛יִם אֲשֶׁ֥ר בַּיְאֹ֖ר וְנֶהֶפְכ֥וּ לְדָֽם׃
18The fish in the Nile will die, the river will stink, and the Egyptians will be unable to drink its water.’”18וְהַדָּגָ֧ה אֲשֶׁר־ בַּיְאֹ֛ר תָּמ֖וּת וּבָאַ֣שׁ הַיְאֹ֑ר וְנִלְא֣וּ מִצְרַ֔יִם לִשְׁתּ֥וֹת מַ֖יִם מִן־ הַיְאֹֽר׃ ס
19And the LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt—over their rivers and canals and ponds and reservoirs—that they may become blood.’ There will be blood throughout the land of Egypt, even in the vessels of wood and stone.”19וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יְהוָ֜ה אֶל־ מֹשֶׁ֗ה אֱמֹ֣ר אֶֽל־ אַהֲרֹ֡ן קַ֣ח מַטְּךָ֣ וּנְטֵֽה־ יָדְךָ֩ עַל־ מֵימֵ֨י מִצְרַ֜יִם עַֽל־ נַהֲרֹתָ֣ם ׀ עַל־ יְאֹרֵיהֶ֣ם וְעַל־ אַגְמֵיהֶ֗ם וְעַ֛ל כָּל־ מִקְוֵ֥ה מֵימֵיהֶ֖ם וְיִֽהְיוּ־ דָ֑ם וְהָ֤יָה דָם֙ בְּכָל־ אֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֔יִם וּבָעֵצִ֖ים וּבָאֲבָנִֽים׃
20Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded; in the presence of Pharaoh and his officials, Aaron raised the staff and struck the water of the Nile, and all the water was turned to blood.20וַיַּֽעֲשׂוּ־ כֵן֩ מֹשֶׁ֨ה וְאַהֲרֹ֜ן כַּאֲשֶׁ֣ר ׀ צִוָּ֣ה יְהוָ֗ה וַיָּ֤רֶם בַּמַּטֶּה֙ וַיַּ֤ךְ אֶת־ הַמַּ֙יִם֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בַּיְאֹ֔ר לְעֵינֵ֣י פַרְעֹ֔ה וּלְעֵינֵ֖י עֲבָדָ֑יו וַיֵּהָֽפְכ֛וּ כָּל־ הַמַּ֥יִם אֲשֶׁר־ בַּיְאֹ֖ר לְדָֽם׃
21The fish in the Nile died, and the river smelled so bad that the Egyptians could not drink its water. There was blood throughout the land of Egypt.21וְהַדָּגָ֨ה אֲשֶׁר־ בַּיְאֹ֥ר מֵ֙תָה֙ וַיִּבְאַ֣שׁ הַיְאֹ֔ר וְלֹא־ יָכְל֣וּ מִצְרַ֔יִם לִשְׁתּ֥וֹת מַ֖יִם מִן־ הַיְאֹ֑ר וַיְהִ֥י הַדָּ֖ם בְּכָל־ אֶ֥רֶץ מִצְרָֽיִם׃
22But the magicians of Egypt did the same things by their magic arts. So Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said.22וַיַּֽעֲשׂוּ־ כֵ֛ן חַרְטֻמֵּ֥י מִצְרַ֖יִם בְּלָטֵיהֶ֑ם וַיֶּחֱזַ֤ק לֵב־ פַּרְעֹה֙ וְלֹא־ שָׁמַ֣ע אֲלֵהֶ֔ם כַּאֲשֶׁ֖ר דִּבֶּ֥ר יְהוָֽה׃
23Instead, Pharaoh turned around, went into his palace, and did not take even this to heart.23וַיִּ֣פֶן פַּרְעֹ֔ה וַיָּבֹ֖א אֶל־ בֵּית֑וֹ וְלֹא־ שָׁ֥ת לִבּ֖וֹ גַּם־ לָזֹֽאת׃
24So all the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink, because they could not drink the water from the river.24וַיַּחְפְּר֧וּ כָל־ מִצְרַ֛יִם סְבִיבֹ֥ת הַיְאֹ֖ר מַ֣יִם לִשְׁתּ֑וֹת כִּ֣י לֹ֤א יָֽכְלוּ֙ לִשְׁתֹּ֔ת מִמֵּימֵ֖י הַיְאֹֽר׃
25And seven full days passed after the LORD had struck the Nile.25וַיִּמָּלֵ֖א שִׁבְעַ֣ת יָמִ֑ים אַחֲרֵ֥י הַכּוֹת־ יְהוָ֖ה אֶת־ הַיְאֹֽר׃ פ
