And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘See, I have set thee in God’s stead to Pharaoh; and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.NoneThou 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.NoneAnd I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.NoneBut 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.NoneAnd the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth My hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.’NoneAnd Moses and Aaron did so; as the LORD commanded them, so did they.NoneAnd Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spoke unto Pharaoh.NoneAnd the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:None’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.’NoneAnd Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so, as the LORD had commanded; and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.NoneThen Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers; and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did in like manner with their secret arts.NoneFor they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents; but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.NoneAnd Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken.NoneAnd the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn, he refuseth to let the people go.NoneGet thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thy hand.NoneAnd thou shalt say unto him: The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, hath sent me unto thee, saying: Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness; and, behold, hitherto thou hast not hearkened;Nonethus saith the LORD: In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD—behold, I will smite with the rod that is in my hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.NoneAnd the fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall become foul; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink water from the river.’NoneAnd the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Say unto Aaron: Take thy rod, and stretch out thy hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their streams, and over their pools, and over all their ponds of water, that they may become blood; and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.’NoneAnd Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD 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.NoneAnd 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.NoneAnd the magicians of Egypt did in like manner with their secret arts; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken.NoneAnd Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he lay even this to heart.NoneAnd all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.NoneAnd seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river.NoneAnd the LORD spoke unto Moses: ‘Go in unto Pharaoh, and say unto him: Thus saith the LORD: Let My people go, that they may serve Me.NoneAnd if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs.NoneAnd the river shall swarm with frogs, which shall go up and come into thy house, and into thy bed-chamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneading-troughs.NoneAnd the frogs shall come up both upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.’None

Sefaria doesn't yet know about the text "".
Please provide some basic information about this text.
The primary title of a text. Texts may have multiple titles which can be entered below, but this will be the default way of referring to this text.
Titles in this field must use Roman chacters, but may be transliterations. Add titles in Hebrew characters below.
The primary title of a text in Hebrew characters. Alternate Hebrew titles may also be added under "Alternate Titles" below.
Alternate Titles can include alternate translations, alternate transliterations spellings, and abbreviations.
Enter each alternate separated by a comma.
A category for the text. Categories are used in searching and grouping texts.
A Text's Structure is represented by the hieracrchy of different types of sections that make up the text.
For example, texts of the Tanach like Genesis are divided into "Chapters" which are then divided into "Verses".
Larger texts, such as the Mishneh Torah, may have more levels in their hierarchy, for example "Book" > "Section" > "Chapter" > "Law".
> Xadd level of structure
Shorthands are alternative ways of refering to a particular point or passage in a text.
For example "Rambam, Hilchot Tshuva" is shorter and more common way to refer to the 7th topic in the first book of Mishneh Torah. From Sefaria's perpective, this segment of text is "Mishneh Torah 1:7", but we we want to capture more human readable forms.
Shorthands are also used to capture multiple ways to refer to a text. For example, since Sefaria stores Genesis in terms of chapters and verses, "Parsha Toledot" is a shorthand for "Genesis 25:19-28:9".
Enter the shorthand text in the box on the left, then enter either a single reference or a range on the right.
