Exodus 8 Frogs, Gnats, Flies

Exodus 8
The Plague of Frogs
The Lord said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go, or I will send a plague of frogs.”
The Lord told Moses, “Tell Aaron to stretch his staff over the streams and make frogs come.”
As Aaron stretched his hand and staff over the waters, so did the magicians and frogs came.
Pharaoh came to Moses and Aaron and said, “Take the frogs away from the land of Egypt.”
Moses said to Pharaoh to set a time to pray to remove the frogs.
The Pharaoh said, “tomorrow.” Moses cried to God and the frogs died in big heaps.
The Pharaoh saw what happened and continued to harden his heart.
The Plague of Gnats
The Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron to stretch his staff over the land of Egypt.”
The gnats came on all the people and animals in the land of Egypt.
The magicians could not do the same and told the Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.”
The Pharaoh continued to harden his heart.
The Plague of Flies
The Lord told Moses to go early and tell Pharaoh to let my people go to worship me.
If not, the Lord will send a swarm of flies except in the land of Goshen where my people live.
The land of Egypt poured into Pharaoh’s palace and ruined the land of Egypt.
Pharaoh said to Moses, “Go sacrifice and worship your God in the land of Egypt.”
Moses said to Pharaoh, “We cannot worship here because of the Egyptians would despise us.”
Moses said, “We must take a 3-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to our God.”
Pharaoh said, “Do not go far into the wilderness and pray for me.”
Moses said, “As soon as I leave, I will pray to the Lord for you and tomorrow the flies leave.”
The Lord granted Moses prayer to remove the flies–not a fly remained.
Pharaoh continued to harden his heart and did not let the Lord’s people go.
