Russell Stendal Teaches on Exodus Chapters 7-9, 11-12 [Spanish]
Exodus 7 (JUB)
1 The Lord said unto Moses, See, I have constituted thee as god unto Pharaoh; and Aaron, thy brother, shall be thy prophet.
2 Thou shalt speak all that I shall command thee; and Aaron, thy brother, shall speak unto Pharaoh that he send the sons of Israel out of his land.
3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
4 And Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, but I shall lay my hand upon Egypt and bring forth my hosts, and my people, the sons of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord when I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from among them.
6 And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, so did they.
7 And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke unto Pharaoh.
8 And the Lord spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
9 If Pharaoh shall answer you, saying, Show a miracle, then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod and cast it before Pharaoh, that it shall become a dragon.
10 So Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did as the Lord had commanded; and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his slaves, and it became a dragon.
11 Then Pharaoh also called wise men and sorcerers; now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their fire worship.
12 For each one cast down his rod, and they became dragons; but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.
13 And Pharaoh’s heart became hard, that he hearkened not unto them as the Lord had said.
14 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is become grievous, for he refuses to let the people go.
15 Go unto Pharaoh in the morning; behold, he goes out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink before him and take in thy hand the rod which was turned to a serpent
16 and say unto him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews has sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness; and, behold, until now thou hast not desired to hear.
17 Thus hath the Lord said, In this thou shalt know that I am the Lord; behold, I will smite with the rod that is in my hand the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
18 And the fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink the water of the river.
19 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their rivers, upon their streams, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.
20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and lifting up the rod, he smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his slaves; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.
21 And the fish that were in the river died; and the river became corrupted, so that the Egyptians could not drink the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
22 And the magicians of Egypt did the same with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart hardened itself, and he did not hearken unto them, as the Lord had said.
23 And Pharaoh turned and returned to his house, and even with all this he did not take this to heart.
24 And in all Egypt they dug wells round about the river for water to drink, for they could not drink of the water of the river.
25 And seven days were fulfilled after the Lord had smitten the river.
Exodus 8 (JUB)
1 Then the Lord spoke unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh and say unto him, The Lord hath said thus, Let my people go that they may serve me.
2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:
3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thy house and into thy bedchamber and upon thy bed and into the houses of thy slaves and upon thy people and into thine ovens and into thy kneadingtroughs;
4 and the frogs shall come up upon thee and upon thy people and upon all thy slaves.
5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over the ponds and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.
6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.
7 And the magicians did the same with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron and said unto them, Intreat the Lord that he may take away the frogs from me and from my people, and I will let the people go that they may sacrifice unto the Lord.
9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Tell me: when shall I intreat for thee and for thy slaves and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain only in the river?
10 And he said, Tomorrow. And Moses replied, Be it according to thy word, that thou may know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.
11 And the frogs shall depart from thee and from thy houses and from thy slaves and from thy people; they shall remain only in the river.
12 Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh; and Moses cried unto the Lord because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.
13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs of the houses, of the villages, and of the fields died.
14 And they gathered them together in heaps; and the land was corrupted.
15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart and did not hearken unto them as the Lord had said.
16 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
18 And the magicians did the same with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not. And there were lice upon man and upon beast.
19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God. But Pharaoh’s heart hardened, and he did not hearken unto them as the Lord had said.
20 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh; behold, he goes forth to the water and say unto him, The Lord hath said thus, Let my people go that they may serve me.
21 For if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee and upon thy slaves and upon thy people and into thy houses; and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of all kinds of flies and also the ground upon which they are.
22 And I will separate in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no kind of flies shall be there to the end that thou may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.
23 And I will put redemption between my people and thy people. Tomorrow shall this sign be.
24 And the Lord did so: that there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh and into his slaves’ houses and into all the land of Egypt; and the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
25 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land of Egypt.
26 And Moses replied, It is not convenient to do so; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God. Behold, if we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not stone us?
27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as he has said unto us.
28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away; pray for me.
29 And Moses answered, Behold, as I go out from thy presence, I will intreat the Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his slaves, and from his people tomorrow; if Pharaoh will not deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.
30 Then Moses went out from Pharaoh, and prayed unto the Lord.
31 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses, and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his slaves, and from his people; there remained not one.
32 And Pharaoh even hardened his heart this time and did not let the people go.
Exodus 9 (JUB)
1 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go that they may serve me.
2 For if thou refuse to let them go and wilt hold them still,
3 behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy livestock which are in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the cows, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous pestilence.
4 And the Lord shall separate between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt so that nothing shall die of all that is of the sons of Israel.
5 And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land.
6 And the next day the Lord did that thing, and of all the livestock of Egypt many died, but of the livestock of the sons of Israel not one died.
7 Then Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the livestock of the sons of Israel dead. But the heart of Pharaoh hardened, and he did not let the people go.
8 And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Let each of you take handfuls of soot from the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9 And it shall become dust upon all the land of Egypt, which shall cause boils breaking forth with blisters upon man and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.
10 And they took the soot of the furnace and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and boils breaking forth with blisters came upon man and upon beast
11 until the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boils were upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.
12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not hearken unto them as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.
13 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go that they may serve me.
14 For otherwise this time I will send all my plagues upon thine heart and upon thy slaves and upon thy people that thou may know that there is none like me in all the earth.
15 For now I will stretch out my hand that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence, and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
16 For in truth I have placed thee to declare my power in thee, and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
17 Thou even so dost exalt thyself against my people that thou wilt not let them go.
18 Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
19 Send therefore now and gather thy livestock and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the slaves of Pharaoh made his slaves and his livestock flee into the houses;
21 and he that did not regard the word of the Lord left his slaves and his livestock in the field.
22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon the men and upon the beasts and upon all the grass of the field throughout the land of Egypt.
23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven, and the Lord raised his voice and it hailed, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
24 So there was hail and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became inhabited.
25 And that hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both men and beasts; and the hail smote all the grass of the field and broke all the trees of the field.
26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the sons of Israel were, was there no hail.
27 Then Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron and said unto them, I have sinned this time; the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
28 Intreat the Lord that the thunderings of God and the hail might cease; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay here no longer.
29 And Moses replied unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will extend my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou may know how that the earth is the Lord’s.
30 But I know thee and thy slaves from before ye began to fear the presence of the Lord God.
31 The flax, therefore, and the barley were smitten, for the barley was headed out, and the flax was in stalk.
32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten; for they were late.
33 And Moses went out from the presence of Pharaoh and out of the city and extended his hands unto the Lord; and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.
34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he persevered in his sin and hardened his heart, he and his slaves.
35 And the heart of Pharaoh hardened, and he did not let the sons of Israel go as the Lord had spoken by Moses.
Exodus 11 (JUB)
1 And the Lord said unto Moses, I will bring one more plague upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt, after which he will let you go from here; when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out of here altogether.
2 Speak now to the people and let each man demand of his neighbour and each woman of her neighbour, vessels of silver and of gold.
3 And the Lord gave the people grace in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s slaves, and in the sight of the people.
4 And Moses said, The Lord hath said thus, About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt,
5 and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sits upon his throne even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill and all the firstborn of beasts.
6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has never been one like it, nor shall there ever be any like it again.
7 But among all the sons of Israel, from man to beast, not a dog shall move his tongue, that ye may know that the Lord shall make a difference between the Egyptians and the Israelites.
8 And all these thy slaves shall come down unto me and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Go out, and all the people that follow thee; and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.
9 And the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: but the Lord had hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the sons of Israel go out of his land.
Exodus 12 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of the months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.
3 Speak unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month let each man take a lamb according to the families of the fathers, a lamb per family;
4 and if the household is too small and is not able to eat the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of persons; each one according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5 The lamb shall be without blemish, a male of one year; ye shall take it out from the sheep or from the goats;
6 and ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month, and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it between the two evenings.
7 And they shall take of the blood and put it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses in which they shall eat it.
8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
9 Eat none of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire, his head with his legs, and with the entrails thereof.
10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remains of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
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 the Lord’s passover.
12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both among man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord.
13 And this blood shall be to you for a sign upon the houses where ye are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it as a feast unto the Lord throughout your ages; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.
15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
16 And in the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, except that which every person must eat, that only may be done of you.
17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread, for in this same day have I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt; therefore, shall ye observe this day for your ages by an ordinance forever.
18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, ye shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the month in the evening.
19 For seven days there shall be no leaven found in your houses; for whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a stranger or born in the land.
20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations ye shall eat unleavened bread.
21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said unto them, Draw out and take lambs according to your families and sacrifice the passover.
22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin and touch 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.
23 For the Lord will pass through smiting the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood upon the lintel and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over that door and will not allow the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons forever.
25 And it shall come to pass, when ye have entered into the land which the Lord will give you, according as he has promised, that ye shall keep this service.
26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What do you mean by this service?
27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s passover, who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians and delivered our houses. Then the people bowed and worshipped.
28 And the sons of Israel went away, and as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the animals.
30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his slaves and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the sons of Israel, and go, serve the Lord as ye have said.
32 Also take your sheep and your cows, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.
33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people that they might send them out of the land in haste, for they said, We are all dead men.
34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.
35 And the sons of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they asked the Egyptians for vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and clothing.
36 And the Lord gave the people grace in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they gave unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
37 And the sons of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, not counting the children.
38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them and many sheep and cows.
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 nor prepare food for themselves.
40 Now the time that the sons of Israel dwelt in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.
41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even that same day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.
42 It is a night to be much observed unto the Lord for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this night should be observed unto the Lord by all the sons of Israel in their ages.
43 And the Lord said unto Moses and Aaron, This shall be the ordinance of the passover: No stranger shall eat of it,
44 but every man’s slave that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.
45 The foreigner and the hired servant shall not eat of it.
46 It shall be eaten in one house; thou shalt not carry forth any of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.
47 All the congregation of Israel shall make this sacrifice.
48 And if a stranger shall sojourn with thee and desire to make the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and make this sacrifice; and he shall be as one that is natural in the land, but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.
49 The same law shall be for the one who is natural, and for the stranger that sojourns among you.
50 Thus did all the sons of Israel; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
51 And it came to pass that same day that the Lord did bring the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.
