1 7:26 And Jehovah said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh, and say to him, Thus says Jehovah, Send My people away, and they shall serve Me.

2 7:27 And if thou refuse to send, behold I will strike all thy border with frogs.

3 7:28 And the river shall make frogs to crawl, and they shall go·​·up and come into thy house, and into thy bed chamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and on thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneading-troughs.

4 7:29 And on thee, and on thy people, and on all thy servants, shall the frogs go·​·up.

5 1 And Jehovah said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch thy hand with thy rod over the rivers, over the channels of the Nile, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to go·​·up on the land of Egypt.

6 2 And Aaron stretched his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs went·​·up, and covered the land of Egypt.

7 3 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments, and caused frogs to go·​·up on the land of Egypt.

8 4 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron, and said, Supplicate ye to Jehovah, and He shall remove the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will send· the people ·away, and they shall sacrifice to Jehovah.

9 5 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Have honor* over me. How·​·long shall I supplicate for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to cut·​·off the frogs from thee, and from thy houses? Only in the Nile shall they be left.

10 6 And he said, To tomorrow. And he said, Be it according·​·to thy word; therefore thou mayest know that there is none as Jehovah our God.

11 7 And the frogs shall be removed from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; only in the Nile shall they be left.

12 8 And Moses and Aaron went out from before Pharaoh; and Moses cried to Jehovah upon the word of the frogs which He had laid on Pharaoh.

13 9 And Jehovah did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courts, and out of the fields.

14 10 And they piled· them ·up, heaps and heaps; and the land stank.

15 11 And Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, and he made heavy his heart, and heard them not, as Jehovah had spoken.

16 12 And Jehovah said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, and it shall become lice in all the land of Egypt.

17 13 And they did so; and Aaron stretched·​·out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the land, and there was lice on man and on beast; all the dust of the land became lice in all the land of Egypt.

18 14 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring·​·out lice, and they were· not ·able; and there was louse on man and on beast.

19 15 And the magicians said to Pharaoh, This is the finger of God; and the heart of Pharaoh was made·​·firm, and he hearkened not to them, as Jehovah had spoken.

20 16 And Jehovah said to Moses, Get·​·up·​·early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he goes forth to the waters; and say to him, Thus says Jehovah, Let My people go, that they may serve Me.

21 17 For if thou send· not My people ·out, behold I send among thee, and among thy servants, and among thy people, and into thy houses, a flying·​·swarm; and the houses of the Egyptians shall be filled with the flying·​·swarm, and even the ground on which it is.

22 18 And I will set·​·apart in that day the land of Goshen, upon which My people stand, that no flying·​·swarm be there; to the end that thou mayest·​·know that I am Jehovah in the midst of the land.

23 19 And I will set redemption between My people and thy people; tomorrow shall this sign be.

24 20 And Jehovah did so; and there came the heavy flying·​·swarm into the house of Pharaoh, and into the house of his servants, and into all the land of Egypt; the land was destroyed from before the flying·​·swarm.

25 21 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

26 22 And Moses said, It is not right to do so, for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to Jehovah our God; lo, we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to their eyes, and will they not stone us?

27 23 We will go a way of three days into the wilderness, and will sacrifice to Jehovah our God, as He has said to us.

28 24 And Pharaoh said, I will send you, and you shall sacrifice to Jehovah your God in the wilderness; only being·​·far be· not ·far in going; supplicate for me.

29 25 And Moses said, Behold I go·​·out from thee, and I will supplicate to Jehovah that He may remove the flying·​·swarm from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, tomorrow; only let not Pharaoh delude us again in not sending· the people ·out to sacrifice to Jehovah.

30 26 And Moses went·​·out from with Pharaoh, and he supplicated to Jehovah.

31 27 And Jehovah did according·​·to the word of Moses; and He removed the flying·​·swarm from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; not one was left.

32 28 And Pharaoh made·​·heavy his heart this time also, and he did not let· the people ·go.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Exodus 8      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 7378. In this chapter, in the internal sense, the subject is continued of the vastation of those who are in falsities, and who infest the upright in the other life. The first two degrees of vastation were described in the preceding chapter, also the third degree in part, which was that they reasoned only from mere falsities. Reasonings from mere falsities are signified by "the frogs;" which subject is continued in this chapter; and then the fourth and fifth degrees of the vastation of those who are in falsities and infest the upright in the other life are treated of. The fourth degree is that they were in evils which destroyed every good with them, also whatever they had from natural good; these are signified by the lice from the dust of the land. The fifth degree is that they were in falsities from these evils, whereby every truth would be destroyed; these are signified by the noisome fly.
