Context Readings

Death Of Firstborn And Deliverance From Egypt

28 And the children of Israel went and did so; as the Lord had given orders to Moses and Aaron, so they did. 29 And in the middle of the night the Lord sent death on every first male child in the land of Egypt, from the child of Pharaoh on his seat of power to the child of the prisoner in the prison; and the first births of all the cattle. 30 Then Pharaoh got up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians; and a great cry went up from Egypt; for there was not a house where someone was not dead.
