28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

28 Then the Israelites went and did this; they did just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron.

28 The Israelis did this. Moses and Aaron did just what the LORD had commanded.

28 Then the Israelites went and did [as they had been told]: just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.

31 Then (AT)he called for Moses and Aaron at night and said, “Rise up, (AU)get out from among my people, both you and the sons of Israel; and go, (ae)worship the Lord, as you have said.

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 children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.

32 Take both your sheep and your cattle, just as you demanded and go! And bless me too!"

32 Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and [ask your God to] bless me also.”

33 (AW)The Egyptians urged the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, “We will all be dead.”

33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.

33 Now the Egyptians pressured the people in order to send them quickly out of the country, for they said, “We’re all going to die!”(W)

33 The Egyptian officials urged the people to send them out of the land quickly, because they were saying, "We'll all be dead!"

33 The Egyptians [anxiously] urged the people [to leave], to send them out of the land quickly, for they said, “We will all be dead.”

35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

35 The Israelites acted on Moses’ word and asked the Egyptians for silver and gold jewelry and for clothing.(X)

35 Meanwhile, the Israelis had done as Moses said; they had asked the Egyptians for objects of silver and objects of gold, and for clothes.

35 Now the Israelites had acted in accordance with the word of Moses; and they had asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and articles of gold, and clothing.

36 and the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have their request. Thus they (AZ)plundered the Egyptians.

36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

36 And the Lord gave the people such favor in the Egyptians’ sight that they gave them what they requested. In this way they plundered the Egyptians.
