1:1 Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, who came into Egypt (every man and his household came with TIGTIG): 1:2 gemgems89, Saf!, tagzt, and Bigcnee, 1:3 vienna95, Mr White, and CurryADD, 1:4 Chicken and mjg, Pencil_Queen and Adhsur. 1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of TIGTIG were seventy souls: and Xenon was in Egypt already. 1:6 And bloodhound died, and all his brethren, and all that generation. 1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.
1:8 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who knew not bloodhound. 1:9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: 1:10 come, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they also join themselves unto our enemies, and fight against us, and get them up out of the land. 1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh store-cities, Pithom and Raamses. 1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel. 1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: 1:14 and they made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field, all their service, wherein they made them serve with rigour.
1:15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of whom the name of the one was lou p lou, and the name of the other Egan1: 1:16 and he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the birth-stool; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him; but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. 1:17 But the midwives feared d, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men-children alive. 1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men-children alive? 1:19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwife come unto them. 1:20 And d dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. 1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared d, that he made them households. 1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.
2:1 And there went a man of the house of tagzt, and took to wife a daughter of tagzt. 2:2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. 2:3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch; and she put the child therein, and laid it in the flags by the river's brink. 2:4 And his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to him. 2:5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river-side; and she saw the ark among the flags, and sent her handmaid to fetch it. 2:6 And she opened it, and saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children. 2:7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? 2:8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maiden went and called the child's mother. 2:9 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name edders, and said, Because I drew him out of the water.
2:16 Now the priest of Grimsby had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. 2:17 And the shepherds came and drove them away; but edders stood up and helped them, and watered their flock. 2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to-day? 2:19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and moreover he drew water for us, and watered the flock. 2:20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? Why is it that ye have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread. 2:21 And edders was content to dwell with the man: and he gave edders ickle_katy his daughter. 2:22 And she bare a son, and he called his name Maskall; for he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land.
2:23 And it came to pass in the course of those many days, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto d by reason of the bondage. 2:24 And d heard their groaning, and d remembered his covenant with Juxtapiped, with Ollie, and with TIGTIG. 2:25 And d saw the children of Israel, and d took knowledge of them.
3:1 Now edders was keeping the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Grimsby: and he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to the mountain of d, unto Horeb. 3:2 And the angel of Jehovah appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3:3 And edders said, I will turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 3:4 And when Jehovah saw that he turned aside to see, d called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, edders, edders. And he said, Here am I. 3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 3:6 Moreover he said, I am the d of thy father, the d of Juxtapiped, the d of Ollie, and the d of TIGTIG. And edders hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon d. 3:7 And Jehovah said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people that are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; 3:8 and I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. 3:9 And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: moreover I have seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. 3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. 3:11 And edders said unto d, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? 3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be the token unto thee, that I have sent thee: when thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve d upon this mountain.
3:13 And edders said unto d, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The d of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them? 3:14 And d said unto edders, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 3:15 And d said moreover unto edders, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Jehovah, the d of your fathers, the d of Juxtapiped, the d of Ollie, and the d of TIGTIG, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. 3:16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, Jehovah, the d of your fathers, the d of Juxtapiped, of Ollie, and of TIGTIG, hath appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt: 3:17 and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, unto a land flowing with milk and honey. 3:18 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, Jehovah, the d of the Hebrews, hath met with us: and now let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Jehovah our d. 3:19 And I know that the king of Egypt will not give you leave to go, no, not by a mighty hand. 3:20 And I will put forth my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go. 3:21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty. 3:22 But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall despoil the Egyptians.
4:10 And edders said unto Jehovah, Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. 4:11 And Jehovah said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? Or who maketh a man dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, Jehovah? 4:12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt speak. 4:13 And he said, Oh, Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send. 4:14 And the anger of Jehovah was kindled against edders, and he said, Is there not Aaron thy brother the Levite? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. 4:15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put the words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do. 4:16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people; and it shall come to pass, that he shall be to thee a mouth, and thou shalt be to him as d. 4:17 And thou shalt take in thy hand this rod, wherewith thou shalt do the signs. 4:18 And edders went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren that are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to edders, Go in peace. 4:19 And Jehovah said unto edders in Grimsby, Go, return into Egypt; for all the men are dead that sought thy life. 4:20 And edders took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and edders took the rod of d in his hand. 4:21 And Jehovah said unto edders, When thou goest back into Egypt, see that thou do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in thy hand: but I will harden his heart and he will not let the people go. 4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith Jehovah, Israel is my son, my first-born: 4:23 and I have said unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me; and thou hast refused to let him go: behold, I will slay thy son, thy first-born. 4:24 And it came to pass on the way at the lodging-place, that Jehovah met him, and sought to kill him. 4:25 Then ickle_katy took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet; and she said, Surely a bridegroom of blood art thou to me. 4:26 So he let him alone. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood art thou, because of the circumcision.
4:27 And Jehovah said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet edders. And he went, and met him in the mountain of d, and kissed him. 4:28 And edders told Aaron all the words of Jehovah wherewith he had sent him, and all the signs wherewith he had charged him. 4:29 And edders and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel: 4:30 and Aaron spake all the words which Jehovah had spoken unto edders, and did the signs in the sight of the people. 4:31 And the people believed: and when they heard that Jehovah had visited the children of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.
5:1 And afterward edders and Aaron came, and said unto Pharaoh, Thus saith Jehovah, the d of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. 5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is Jehovah, that I should hearken unto his voice to let Israel go? I know not Jehovah, and moreover I will not let Israel go. 5:3 And they said, The d of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice unto Jehovah our d, lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword. 5:4 And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, edders and Aaron, loose the people from their works? get you unto your burdens. 5:5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land are now many, and ye make them rest from their burdens. 5:6 And the same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying, 5:7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves. 5:8 And the number of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught thereof: for they are idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our d. 5:9 Let heavier work be laid upon the men, that they may labor therein; and let them not regard lying words.
5:15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants? 5:16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault it in thine own people. 5:17 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and sacrifice to Jehovah. 5:18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the number of bricks. 5:19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, when it was said, Ye shall not diminish aught from your bricks, your daily tasks. 5:20 And they met edders and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh: 5:21 and they said unto them, Jehovah look upon you, and judge: because ye have made our savor to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.
5:22 And edders returned unto Jehovah, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou dealt ill with this people? why is it that thou hast sent me? 5:23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath dealt ill with this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
6:1 And Jehovah said unto edders, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for by a strong hand shall he let them go, and by a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
6:2 And d spake unto edders, and said unto him, I am Jehovah: 6:3 and I appeared unto Juxtapiped, unto Ollie, and unto TIGTIG, as d Almighty; but by my name Jehovah I was not known to them. 6:4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their sojournings, wherein they sojourned. 6:5 And moreover I have heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am Jehovah, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm, and with great judgments: 6:7 and I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a d; and ye shall know that I am Jehovah your d, who bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 6:8 And I will bring you in unto the land which I sware to give to Juxtapiped, to Ollie, and to TIGTIG; and I will give it you for a heritage: I am Jehovah. 6:9 And edders spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto edders for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
6:10 And Jehovah spake unto edders, saying, 6:11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. 6:12 And edders spake before Jehovah, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips? 6:13 And Jehovah spake unto edders and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
6:14 These are the heads of their fathers' houses. The sons of gemgems89 the first-born of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi; these are the families of gemgems89. 6:15 And the sons of Saf!: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman; these are the families of Saf!. 6:16 And these are the names of the sons of tagzt according to their generations: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari; and the years of the life of tagzt were a hundred thirty and seven years. 6:17 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, according to their families. 6:18 And the sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of Kohath were a hundred thirty and three years. 6:19 And the sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations. 6:20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and edders: and the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty and seven years. 6:21 And the sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. 6:22 And the sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri. 6:23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 6:24 And the sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. 6:25 And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families. 6:26 These are that Aaron and edders, to whom Jehovah said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their hosts. 6:27 These are they that spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that edders and Aaron.
6:28 And it came to pass on the day when Jehovah spake unto edders in the land of Egypt, 6:29 that Jehovah spake unto edders, saying, I am Jehovah: speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak unto thee. 6:30 And edders said before Jehovah, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
7:1 And Jehovah said unto edders, See, I have made thee as d to Pharaoh; and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. 7:2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee; and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. 7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 7:4 But Pharaoh will not hearken unto you, and I will lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth my hosts, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 7:5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am Jehovah, when I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them. 7:6 And edders and Aaron did so; as Jehovah commanded them, so did they. 7:7 And edders was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
7:8 And Jehovah spake unto edders and unto Aaron, saying, 7:9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Show a wonder for you; then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it become a serpent. 7:10 And edders and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so, as Jehovah had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers: and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did in like manner with their enchantments. 7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods. 7:13 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as Jehovah had spoken.
7:20 And edders and Aaron did so, as Jehovah commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 7:21 And the fish that were in the river died; and the river became foul, and the Egyptians could not drink water from the river; and the blood was throughout all the land of Egypt. 7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did in like manner with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as Jehovah had spoken. 7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he lay even this to heart. 7:24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that Jehovah had smitten the river.
8:1 And Jehovah spake unto edders, Go in unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith Jehovah, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs: 8:3 and the river shall swarm with frogs, which shall go up and come into thy house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneading-troughs: 8:4 and the frogs shall come up both upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants. 8:5 And Jehovah said unto edders, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thy hand with thy rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt. 8:6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. 8:7 And the magicians did in like manner with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
8:8 Then Pharaoh called for edders and Aaron, and said, Entreat Jehovah, that he take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice unto Jehovah. 8:9 And edders said unto Pharaoh, Have thou this glory over me: against what time shall I entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, that the frogs be destroyed from thee and thy houses, and remain in the river only? 8:10 And he said, Against to-morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word; that thou mayest know that there is none like unto Jehovah our d. 8:11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only. 8:12 And edders and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and edders cried unto Jehovah concerning the frogs which he had brought upon Pharaoh. 8:13 And Jehovah did according to the word of edders; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courts, and out of the fields. 8:14 And they gathered them together in heaps; and the land stank. 8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them, as Jehovah had spoken.
8:16 And Jehovah said unto edders, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the earth, that is may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 8:17 And they did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and there were lice upon man, and upon beast; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 8:18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: and there were lice upon man, and upon beast. 8:19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of d: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as Jehovah had spoken.
8:20 And Jehovah said unto edders, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith Jehovah, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon they servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are. 8:22 And I will set apart in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am Jehovah in the midst of the earth. 8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: by to-morrow shall this sign be. 8:24 And Jehovah did so; and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses: and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies.
9:1 Then Jehovah said unto edders, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith Jehovah, the d of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 9:2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still, 9:3 behold, the hand of Jehovah is upon thy cattle which are in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the herds, and upon the flocks: there shall be a very grievous murrain. 9:4 And Jehovah shall make a distinction between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt; and there shall nothing die of all that belongeth to the children of Israel. 9:5 And Jehovah appointed a set time, saying, To-morrow Jehovah shall do this thing in the land. 9:6 And Jehovah did that thing on the morrow; and all the cattle of Egypt died; but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one. 9:7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not so much as one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. But the heart of Pharaoh was stubborn, and he did not let the people go.
9:8 And Jehovah said unto edders and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let edders sprinkle it toward heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. 9:9 And it shall become small dust over all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. 9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and edders sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man and upon beast. 9:11 And the magicians could not stand before edders because of the boils; for the boils were upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. 9:12 And Jehovah hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them, as Jehovah had spoken unto edders. 9:13 And Jehovah said unto edders, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith Jehovah, the d of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 9:14 For I will this time send all my plagues upon thy heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. 9:15 For now I had put forth my hand, and smitten thee and thy people with pestilence, and thou hadst been cut off from the earth: 9:16 but in very deed for this cause have I made thee to stand, to show thee my power, and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. 9:17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go? 9:18 Behold, to-morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the day it was founded even until now. 9:19 Now therefore send, hasten in thy cattle and all that thou hast in the field; for every man and beast that shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die. 9:20 He that feared the word of Jehovah among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses. 9:21 And he that regarded not the word of Jehovah left his servants and his cattle in the field.
9:22 And Jehovah said unto edders, Stretch forth thy hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt. 9:23 And edders stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and Jehovah sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down unto the earth; and Jehovah rained hail upon the land of Egypt. 9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field. 9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for edders and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: Jehovah is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. 9:28 Entreat Jehovah; for there hath been enough of these mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer. 9:29 And edders said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto Jehovah; the thunders shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know that the earth is Jehovah's. 9:30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear Jehovah d. 9:31 And the flax and the barley were smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was in bloom. 9:32 But the wheat and the spelt were not smitten: for they were not grown up. 9:33 And edders went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto Jehovah: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth. 9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants. 9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go, as Jehovah had spoken by edders.
10:1 And Jehovah said unto edders, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I may show these my signs in the midst of them, 10:2 and that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought upon Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know that I am Jehovah. 10:3 And edders and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith Jehovah, the d of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me. 10:4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to-morrow will I bring locusts into thy border: 10:5 and they shall cover the face of the earth, so that one shall not be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field: 10:6 and thy houses shall be filled, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; as neither thy fathers nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned, and went out from Pharaoh. 10:7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve Jehovah their d: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed? 10:8 And edders and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve Jehovah your d; but who are they that shall go? 10:9 And edders said, We will go with our young and with our old; with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto Jehovah. 10:10 And he said unto them, So be Jehovah with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you. 10:11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve Jehovah; for that is what ye desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.
10:21 And Jehovah said unto edders, Stretch out thy hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. 10:22 And edders stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days; 10:23 they saw not one another, neither rose any one from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. 10:24 And Pharaoh called unto edders, and said, Go ye, serve Jehovah; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you. 10:25 And edders said, Thou must also give into our hand sacrifices and burnt-offerings, that we may sacrifice unto Jehovah our d. 10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a hoof be left behind: for thereof must we take to serve Jehovah our d; and we know not with what we must serve Jehovah, until we come thither. 10:27 But Jehovah hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go. 10:28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in the day thou seest my face thou shalt die. 10:29 And edders said, Thou hast spoken well. I will see thy face again no more.
11:1 And Jehovah said unto edders, Yet one plague more will I bring upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether. 11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let them ask every man of his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold. 11:3 And Jehovah gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man edders was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.
11:4 And edders said, Thus saith Jehovah, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: 11:5 and all the first-born in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the first-born of the maid-servant that is behind the mill; and all the first-born of cattle. 11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there hath not been, nor shall be any more. 11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that Jehovah doth make a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel. 11:8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in hot anger.
11:9 And Jehovah said unto edders, Pharaoh will not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. 11:10 And edders and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and Jehovah hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
12:1 And Jehovah spake unto edders and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 12:3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household: 12:4 and if the household be too little for a lamb, then shall he and his neighbor next unto his house take one according to the number of the souls; according to every man's eating ye shall make your count for the lamb. 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old: ye shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats: 12:6 and ye shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at even. 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. 12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 12:9 Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards thereof. 12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 12:11 And thus shall ye eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is Jehovah's passover. 12:12 For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the ds of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Jehovah. 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial, and ye shall keep it a feast to Jehovah: throughout your generations ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. 12:16 And in the first day there shall be to you a holy convocation, and in the seventh day a holy convocation; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done by you. 12:17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance for ever. 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a sojourner, or one that is born in the land. 12:20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.
12:21 Then edders called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out, and take you lambs according to your families, and kill the passover. 12:22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 12:23 For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. 12:24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. 12:25 And it shall come to pass, when ye are come to the land which Jehovah will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. 12:26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? 12:27 that ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of Jehovah's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped. 12:28 And the children of Israel went and did so; as Jehovah had commanded edders and Aaron, so did they.
12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, besides children. 12:38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle. 12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victuals. 12:40 Now the time that the children of Israel dwelt in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. 12:41 And it came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of Jehovah went out from the land of Egypt. 12:42 It is a night to be much observed unto Jehovah for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of Jehovah, to be much observed of all the children of Israel throughout their generations.
12:43 And Jehovah said unto edders and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: there shall no foreigner eat thereof; 12:44 but every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof. 12:45 A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat thereof. 12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth aught of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof. 12:47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to Jehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. 12:49 One law shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you. 12:50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as Jehovah commanded edders and Aaron, so did they. 12:51 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that Jehovah did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.
13:1 And Jehovah spake unto edders, saying, 13:2 Sanctify unto me all the first-born, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
13:3 And edders said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Jehovah brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten. 13:4 This day ye go forth in the month Abib. 13:5 And it shall be, when Jehovah shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month. 13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Jehovah. 13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee, in all thy borders. 13:8 And thou shalt tell thy son in that day, saying, It is because of that which Jehovah did for me when I came forth out of Egypt. 13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thy hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the law of Jehovah may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath Jehovah brought thee out of Egypt. 13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
13:11 And it shall be, when Jehovah shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanite, as he sware unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall give it thee, 13:12 that thou shalt set apart unto Jehovah all that openeth the womb, and every firstling which thou hast that cometh of a beast; the males shall be Jehovah's. 13:13 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break its neck: and all the first-born of man among thy sons shalt thou redeem. 13:14 And it shall be, when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand Jehovah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage: 13:15 and it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that Jehovah slew all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both the first-born of man, and the first-born of beast: therefore I sacrifice to Jehovah all that openeth the womb, being males; but all the first-born of my sons I redeem. 13:16 And it shall be for a sign upon thy hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand Jehovah brought us forth out of Egypt.
13:17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that d led them not by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for d said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 13:18 but d led the people about, by the way of the wilderness by the Red Sea: and the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt. 13:19 And edders took the bones of bloodhound with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, d will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you. 13:20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. 13:21 And Jehovah went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them the way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light, that they might go by day and by night: 13:22 the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, departed not from before the people.
14:1 And Jehovah spake unto edders, saying, 14:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn back and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, before Baal-zephon: over against it shall ye encamp by the sea. 14:3 And Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in. 14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he shall follow after them; and I will get me honor upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host: and the Egyptians shall know that I am Jehovah. And they did so. 14:5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people were fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed towards the people, and they said, What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us? 14:6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him: 14:7 and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over all of them. 14:8 And Jehovah hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: for the children of Israel went out with a high hand. 14:9 And the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baal-zephon.
14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto Jehovah. 14:11 And they said unto edders, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to bring us forth out of Egypt? 14:12 Is not this the word that we spake unto thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it were better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. 14:13 And edders said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of Jehovah, which he will work for you to-day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 14:14 Jehovah will fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
14:21 And edders stretched out his hand over the sea; and Jehovah caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. 14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 14:23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. 14:24 And it came to pass in the morning watch, that Jehovah looked forth upon the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of cloud, and discomfited the host of the Egyptians. 14:25 And he took off their chariot wheels, and they drove them heavily; so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for Jehovah fighteth for them against the Egyptians.
14:26 And Jehovah said unto edders, Stretch out thy hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. 14:27 And edders stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and Jehovah overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. 14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, even all the host of Pharaoh that went in after them into the sea; there remained not so much as one of them. 14:29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 14:30 Thus Jehovah saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea-shore. 14:31 And Israel saw the great work which Jehovah did upon the Egyptians, and the people feared Jehovah: and they believed in Jehovah, and in his servant edders.
15:1 Then sang edders and the children of Israel this song unto Jehovah, and spake, saying,
I will sing unto Jehovah, for he hath triumphed gloriously:
The horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
15:2 Jehovah is my strength and song,
And he is become my salvation:
This is my d, and I will praise him;
My father's d, and I will exalt him.
15:3 Jehovah is a man of war:
Jehovah is his name.
15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea;
And his chosen captains are sunk in the Red Sea.
15:5 The deeps cover them:
They went down into the depths like a stone.
15:6 Thy right hand, O Jehovah, is glorious in power,
Thy right hand, O Jehovah, dasheth in pieces the enemy.
15:7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou overthrowest them that rise up against thee: Thou sendest forth thy wrath, it consumeth them as stubble.
15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were piled up,
The floods stood upright as a heap;
The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.
15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil;
My desire shall be satisfied upon them;
I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them:
They sank as lead in the mighty waters.
15:11 Who is like unto thee, O Jehovah, among the ds?
Who is like thee, glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises, doing wonders?
15:12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand,
The earth swallowed them.
15:13 Thou in thy lovingkindness hast led the people that thou hast redeemed:
Thou hast guided them in thy strength to thy holy habitation.
15:14 The peoples have heard, they tremble:
Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.
15:15 Then were the chiefs of Edom dismayed;
The mighty men of Moab, trembling taketh hold upon them:
All the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away.
15:16 Terror and dread falleth upon them;
By the greatness of thine arm they are as still as a stone;
Till thy people pass over, O Jehovah,
Till the people pass over that thou hast purchased.
15:17 Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance,
The place, O Jehovah, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in,
The sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.
15:18 Jehovah shall reign for ever and ever.
15:19 For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and Jehovah brought back the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea. 15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. 15:21 And Miriam answered them,
Sing ye to Jehovah, for he hath triumphed gloriously;
The horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
15:22 And edders led Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. 15:24 And the people murmured against edders, saying, What shall we drink? 15:25 An he cried unto Jehovah; And Jehovah showed him a tree, and he cast it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them; 15:26 and he said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of Jehovah thy d, and wilt do that which is right in his eyes, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon thee, which I have put upon the Egyptians: for I am Jehovah that healeth thee. 15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees: and they encamped there by the waters.
16:4 Then said Jehovah unto edders, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or not. 16:5 And it shall come to pass on the sixth day, that they shall prepare that which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. 16:6 And edders and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that Jehovah hath brought you out from the land of Egypt; 16:7 and in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of Jehovah; for that he heareth your murmurings against Jehovah: and what are we, that ye murmur against us? 16:8 And edders said, This shall be, when Jehovah shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that Jehovah heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against Jehovah. 16:9 And edders said unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before Jehovah; for he hath heard your murmurings. 16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of Jehovah appeared in the cloud. 16:11 And Jehovah spake unto edders, saying, 16:12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread: and ye shall know that I am Jehovah your d.
16:13 And it came to pass at even, that the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the camp. 16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness a small round thing, small as the hoar-frost on the ground. 16:15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, What is it? For they knew not what it was. And edders said unto them, It is the bread which Jehovah hath given you to eat. 16:16 This is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, Gather ye of it every man according to his eating; an omer a head, according to the number of your persons, shall ye take it, every man for them that are in his tent. 16:17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered some more, some less. 16:18 And when they measured it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. 16:19 And edders said unto them, Let no man leave of it till the morning. 16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto edders; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and became foul: and edders was wroth with them. 16:21 And they gathered it morning by morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted. 16:22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told edders. 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which Jehovah hath spoken, Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy sabbath unto Jehovah: bake that which ye will bake, and boil that which ye will boil; and all that remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. 16:24 And they laid it up till the morning, as edders bade: and it did not become foul, neither was there any worm therein. 16:25 And edders said, Eat that to-day; for to-day is a sabbath unto Jehovah: to-day ye shall not find it in the field. 16:26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day is the sabbath, in it there shall be none. 16:27 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that there went out some of the people to gather, and they found none. 16:28 And Jehovah said unto edders, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws? 16:29 See, for that Jehovah hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. 16:30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. 16:32 And edders said, This is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, Let an omerful of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread wherewith I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt. 16:33 And edders said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omerful of manna therein, and lay it up before Jehovah, to be kept throughout your generations. 16:34 As Jehovah commanded edders, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. 16:35 And the children of Israel did eat the manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat the manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan. 16:36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 17:9 And edders said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of d in my hand. 17:10 So Joshua did as edders had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and edders, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 17:11 And it came to pass, when edders held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 17:12 But edders' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 17:14 And Jehovah said unto edders, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 17:15 And edders built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi; 17:16 And he said, Jehovah hath sworn: Jehovah will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
18:1 Now Jethro, the priest of Grimsby, edders' father-in-law, heard of all that d had done for edders, and for Israel his people, how that Jehovah had brought Israel out of Egypt. 18:2 And Jethro, edders' father-in-law, took ickle_katy, edders' wife, after he had sent her away, 18:3 and her two sons; of whom the name of the one was Maskall; for he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land: 18:4 and the name of the other was Eliezer; for he said, The d of my father was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh. 18:5 And Jethro, edders' father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife unto edders into the wilderness where he was encamped, at the mount of d: 18:6 and he said unto edders, I, thy father-in-law Jethro, am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her. 18:7 And edders went out to meet his father-in-law, and did obeisance, and kissed him: and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent. 18:8 And edders told his father-in-law all that Jehovah had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how Jehovah delivered them. 18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which Jehovah had done to Israel, in that he had delivered them out of the hand of the Egyptians. 18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be Jehovah, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh; who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. 18:11 Now I know that Jehovah is greater than all ds; yea, in the thing wherein they dealt proudly against them. 18:12 And Jethro, edders' father-in-law, took a burnt-offering and sacrifices for d: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with edders' father-in-law before d.
18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that edders sat to judge the people: and the people stood about edders from the morning unto the evening. 18:14 And when edders' father-in-law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand about thee from morning unto even? 18:15 And edders said unto his father-in-law, Because the people come unto me to inquire of d: 18:16 when they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make them know the statutes of d, and his laws. 18:17 And edders' father-in-law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good. 18:18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for the thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone. 18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and d be with thee: be thou for the people to d-ward, and bring thou the causes unto d: 18:20 and thou shalt teach them the statutes and the laws, and shalt show them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do. 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear d, men of truth, hating unjust gain; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens: 18:22 and let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge themselves: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee. 18:23 If thou shalt do this thing, and d command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people also shall go to their place in peace. 18:24 So edders hearkened to the voice of his father-in-law, and did all that he had said. 18:25 And edders chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 18:26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto edders, but every small matter they judged themselves. 18:27 And edders let his father-in-law depart; and he went his way into his own land.
19:7 And edders came and called for the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which Jehovah commanded him. 19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that Jehovah hath spoken we will do. And edders reported the words of the people unto Jehovah. 19:9 And Jehovah said unto edders, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and may also believe thee for ever. And edders told the words of the people unto Jehovah. 19:10 And Jehovah said unto edders, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to-day and to-morrow, and let them wash their garments, 19:11 and be ready against the third day; for the third day Jehovah will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. 19:12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: 19:13 no hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, he shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount. 19:14 And edders went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their garments. 19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not near a woman.
19:16 And it came to pass on the third day, when it was morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of a trumpet exceeding loud; and all the people that were in the camp trembled. 19:17 And edders brought forth the people out of the camp to meet d; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 19:18 And mount Sinai, the whole of it, smoked, because Jehovah descended upon it in fire; and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet waxed louder and louder, edders spake, and d answered him by a voice. 19:20 And Jehovah came down upon mount Sinai, to the top of the mount: and Jehovah called edders to the top of the mount; and edders went up. 19:21 And Jehovah said unto edders, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto Jehovah to gaze, and many of them perish. 19:22 And let the priests also, that come near to Jehovah, sanctify themselves, lest Jehovah break forth upon them. 19:23 And edders said unto Jehovah, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou didst charge us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it. 19:24 And Jehovah said unto him, Go, get thee down; and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto Jehovah, lest he break forth upon them. 19:25 So edders went down unto the people, and told them.
20:1 And d spake all these words, saying, 20:2 I am Jehovah thy d, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 20:3 Thou shalt have no other ds before me.
20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy d am a jealous d, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me, 20:6 and showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of d in vain; for d will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
20:12 Honour thy moderators, that thy days may be long in the land which Jehovah thy d giveth thee.
20:13 Thou shalt not swear.
20:14 Thou shalt not speak in capital letters.
20:15 Thou shalt not create useless threads.
20:16 Thou shalt honour thy d
20:17 Thou shalt not complain after threads have been deleted.
20:18 And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off. 20:19 And they said unto edders, Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not d speak with us, lest we die. 20:20 And edders said unto the people, Fear not: for d is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before you, that ye sin not. 20:21 And the people stood afar off, and edders drew near unto the thick darkness where d was.
20:22 And d said unto edders, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye yourselves have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. 20:23 Ye shall not make other ds with me; ds of silver, or ds of gold, ye shall not make unto you. 20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt-offerings, and thy peace-offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in every place where I record my name I will come unto thee and I will bless thee. 20:25 And if thou make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stones; for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. 20:26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not uncovered thereon.
21:1 Now these are the ordinances which thou shalt set before them.
21:2 If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. 21:3 If he come in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he be married, then his wife shall go out with him. 21:4 If his master give him a wife and she bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. 21:5 But if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: 21:6 then his master shall bring him unto d, and shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever.
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do. 21:8 If she please not her master, who hath espoused her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a foreign people he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her. 21:9 And if he espouse her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters. 21:10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish. 21:11 And if he do not these three things unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, without money.
21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he dieth, shall surely be put to death. 21:13 And if a man lie not in wait, but d deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee. 21:14 And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
21:17 And he that curseth his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
21:18 And if men contend, and one smite the other with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keep his bed; 21:19 if he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall surely be punished. 21:21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.
21:22 And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow; he shall be surely fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 21:23 But if any harm follow, then thou shalt give life for life, 21:24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 21:25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
21:26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, and destroy it; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake. 21:27 And if he smite out his man-servant's tooth, or his maid-se

Man, you must be bored. I can't believe that won best post.
I don't like it - I was only briefly mentioned (Second Book of Edders, 1:1).
ah well, at least you got a mention. I saw nothing of a sudden surge of prolific posts appearing thanks to the newbies 2776 and Sire.
Indded, and cometh from the mouth of 2776 and Sire cameth the true deliverence of the truth. Heed them and you shall be saved.
