Exodus 11 ©
God commands the Israelites to ask or borrow gold and silver vessels from their neighbors, vs. 1, etc. Moses threatens Pharaoh with the death of all the firstborn, 4. And foretells that with the Israelites all would be well and quiet, 7. Pharaoh remains hardened, 9.
AND the LORD 1said unto Moses, Yet will I bring 2one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely 3thrust you out hence altogether.
Speak now in the ears of the 4people, anda let 5every man 6borrow of 7his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
And the LORD gaveb the people 8favour in the sight of the Egyptians. 9Moreover the man Moses was 10very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight 11of the people.
And Moses 12said, Thus 13saith the LORD, About midnight willc I go out into the midst of Egypt:
And alld the 14firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh 15that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is 16behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
And there shall be 17a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
But against any of the children of Israel 18shall not a dog move his tongue, against 19man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
Ande all these thy servants shall come down 20unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that 21follow thee: and after that 22I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh 23in a great anger.
And the LORD 24said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that 25my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: andf the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he 26would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
