Exodus 11

And the Lord said to Moses, I will yet bring one plague upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt, and after that he will send you forth from here; and whenever he sends you forth with everything, he will indeed cast you out altogether. Therefore speak secretly in the ears of the people, and let everyone ask of his neighbor jewels of silver and gold, and clothing. And the Lord gave His people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and they lent to them; and the man Moses was very great before the Egyptians, and before Pharaoh, and before his servants. And Moses said, Thus says the Lord: About midnight I will go forth into the midst of Egypt. And every firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sits on the throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant that is by the mill, and to the firstborn of all cattle. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as never before, the likes of which shall not be repeated again. But among all the children of Israel shall not a dog snarl with his tongue, either at man or beast; that you may know how wide a distinction the Lord will make between the Egyptians and Israel. And all these your servants shall come down to me, and reverence me, saying, Go forth, you and all the people over whom you presided, and afterwards I will go forth. And Moses went forth from Pharaoh with great anger. And the Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, that I may greatly multiply My signs and wonders in the land of Egypt. 10 And Moses and Aaron did all these signs and wonders in the land of Egypt before Pharaoh; and the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not hearken to send forth the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
