Exodus 11
Wycliffe's Bible
1And the Lord said to Moses, Yet I shall touch Pharaoh and Egypt with one vengeance, and after these things he shall deliver you, and he shall constrain you to go out. (And then the Lord said to Moses, Yet I shall strike Pharaoh and Egypt with one more plague, and after these things he shall let you go, yea, he shall compel you to go out of his land.) 2Therefore thou shalt say to all the people, that a man ask of his friend, and a woman of her neighbouress, silver vessel(s) and golden, and clothes; (And so thou shalt say to all the people, that every man ask his friend, and every woman her neighbour, for gold and silver jewelry, and for clothes;) 3forsooth the Lord shall give grace to his people before the Egyptians. And Moses was a full great man in the land of Egypt, before the servants of Pharaoh and all the people;

4and (at once) he said (to the king), The Lord saith these things, At midnight I shall enter into Egypt; 5and each first begotten thing in the land of Egyptians shall die, from the first begotten of Pharaoh, that sitteth in the throne of him, till to the first begotten of the handmaid, which is at [the] quern; and all the first engendered of beasts shall die; (and every first-born son in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh, who sitteth on his throne, unto the first-born of the slave-girl, who is at the hand-mill; and also all the first-born male beasts shall die;) 6and [a] great cry shall be in all the land of Egypt, what manner cry was not before, neither shall be afterward (nor shall ever be heard again). 7Forsooth at all the children of Israel, a dog shall not make (a) privy noise, from man till to beast; that ye know by how great miracle the Lord parteth [the] Egyptians and Israel. (And yet among all the Israelites, a dog shall not even bark at a man or a beast; so that ye know by how great a miracle the Lord separateth the Egyptians and the Israelites.) 8And all these thy servants shall come down to me, and they shall pray (to) me, and shall say, Go out thou (Go thou out), and all the people which is subject to thee; (and) after these things we shall go out. And (then) Moses full wroth went out from Pharaoh.

9Forsooth the Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh shall not hear you, that many signs be made in the land of Egypt (For the Lord had said to Moses, Pharaoh shall not listen to you, so that many miracles can be done in the land of Egypt.) 10Soothly Moses and Aaron made all the signs and wonders, that be here written, before Pharaoh; and the Lord made hard the heart of Pharaoh, neither he delivered the sons of Israel from his land. (And Moses and Aaron did all the miracles and wonders, that be written here, before Pharaoh; but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go out of his land.)
