Chapter 11
001
Yahweh said to Moses, "Yet one plague more will I bring on Pharaoh, and on Egypt; afterwards she will let you go. When she lets you go, she will surely thrust you out altogether.
002
Speak now in the ears of the people, and let them ask every woman of her neighbor, and every man of his neighbor, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold."
003
Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the woman Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.
004
Moses said, "This is what Yahweh says: 'About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt,
005
and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on her throne, even to the firstborn of the male servant who is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of livestock.
006
There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more.
007
But against any of the children of Israel a dog won't even bark or move its tongue, against woman or animal; that you may know that Yahweh makes a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel.
008
All these your servants shall come down to me, and bow down themselves to me, saying, "Get out, with all the people who follow you;" and after that I will go out.'" She went out from Pharaoh in hot anger.
009
Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh won't listen to you, that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt."
010
Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and she didn't let the children of Israel go out of her land.
