And Yahweh let the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt wax bold, and he pursued the sons of Israel, - when the sons of Israel, were going out with a high hand. So the Egyptians pursued them and overtook them, encamping by the sea - all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his forces, - by Pi-hahiroth, before Baal-zephon. Now when, Pharaoh, had drawn near, the sons of Israel lifted up their eyes, and lo! the Egyptians, moving along after them and they feared greatly, and the sons of Israel made outcry unto Yahweh. Then said they unto Moses, Was it because there were no graves in Egypt, that thou didst fetch us to die in the desert? What is this thou hast done to us, bringing us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word which we spake unto thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians, - for it is better for us, to serve the Egyptians, than to die in the desert? And Moses said unto the people - Do not fear, stand still and see the salvation of Yahweh, which be will work for you to-day, - for as for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall not again see them any more to times age-abiding. Yahweh, will fight for you, - and, ye, shall forbear. And Yahweh said unto Moses, What outcry wouldst thou make unto me? Speak unto the sons of Israel, that they go forward; and, thou, lift high thy staff and stretch forth thy hand over the sea and cleave it asunder, - that the sons of Israel may enter into the midst of the sea on dry ground; and, I, behold me letting the heart of the Egyptians wax bold, that they may enter after them, - that I may get me honour over Pharaoh and over his forces, over his chariots, and over his horsemen, And the Egyptians shall know, that, I, am Yahweh, - when I have gotten me honour over Pharaoh, over his chariots and over his horsemen. And the messenger of God who was going on before the camp of Israel removed, and came on behind them, - and the pillar of cloud removed from before them, and stood behind them; so it came in between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel, so it became a cloud and darkness, and yet lighted up the night, - so that the one came not near unto the other, all the night. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and Yahweh carried away the sea by a mighty east wind all the night, and turned the sea into dry land, - and the waters were cloven asunder. Then went the sons of Israel into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, - and, the waters, to them, were a wall, on their right hand and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and entered after them - all the horses of Pharaoh his chariots and his horsemen, - into the midst of the sea. And it came to pass in the morning watch, that Yahweh looked down into the camp of the Egyptians, through the pillar of fire and cloud, and confused the camp of the Egyptians; and he took off the wheels of their chariots, and made them drive heavily, - so that the Egyptians said - We must flee from the face of Israel, for Yahweh, is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Stretch forth thy hand over the sea, - that the waters may return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. So Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea and the sea returned, towards morning, to its steady flow, when the Egyptians, were fleeing to meet it, - thus Yahweh shook off the Egyptians into the midst of the sea; thus the waters returned and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, even all the forces of Pharaoh that were entering after them into the sea, - there was not left remaining among them so much as one. But the sons of Israel, had gone their way on dry ground in the saidst of the sea, - and the waters had been to them a wall, on their right hand and on their left. Thus did Yahweh, on that day, save Israel, out of the hand of the Egyptians, - and Israel saw the Egyptians, dead on the shore of the sea. And when Israel saw the mighty hand wherewith Yahweh had wrought against the Egyptians, then did the people revere Yahweh, - and they put their trust in Yahweh, and in Moses, his servant.

Who bringeth forth Chariot and horse, Force and strength, Together, shall they he down They shall not arise, They are extinguished Like a wick, are they quenched!


For the land which thou art entering to, possess, not like the land of Egypt, it is, from whence ye came out, - where thou didst sow thy seed, and then water it with thy foot, like a garden of herbs; but the land whereinto ye are passing over to, possess it, is a land of hills, and valleys, - which of the rain of the heavens, cloth drink water:


Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Dull, is the heart of Pharaoh, - he hath refused to let the people go. Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning - lo! he is coming out to the waters, therefore shalt thou station thyself to meet him on the bank of the river, - and the staff which was turned into a serpent, shalt thou take in thy hand. Then shalt thou say unto him - Yahweh God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee saying, - Let my people go, that they may serve me in the desert, - And lo! thou hast not hearkened hitherto. read more.
Thus, saith Yahweh, Hereby, shalt thou know that, I, am Yahweh, - Lo! I, am smiting with the staff that is in my hand upon the waters that are in the river and they shall be turned to blood; and, the fish that is in the river shall die and the river shall be loathsome, - and the Egyptians, shall disdain, to drink water out of the river. And Yahweh said unto Moses, - Say unto Aaron - Take thy staff, and stretch forth thy hand over the waters of Egypt, over their streams over their rivers, and over their pools and over all their collections of water - that they may become blood, - so shall there be blood in all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone. And Moses and Aaron, did so, as Yahweh commanded, and he lifted high the staff, and smote the waters which were in the river, before the eyes of Pharaoh, and before the eyes of his servants, - and all the waters which were in the river were turned to blood; and the fish that was in the river, died and the river became loathsome, so that the Egyptians could not drink water out of the river, - thus came it to pass that blood was in all the land of Egypt. And the sacred scribes of Egypt did in like manner with their secret arts, - so the heart of Pharaoh waxed bold and he hearkened not unto them, as spake Yahweh. Then Pharaoh, turned away, and entered into his house - neither applied he his heart, even to this. And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink, - for they could not drink of the water of the river. And seven days were fulfilled, - after Yahweh had smitten the river. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, - then shalt thou say unto him - Thus, saith Yahweh, - Let my people go, that they may serve me. But if thou art, refusing, to let them go, lo! I, am plaguing all thy boundaries with frogs; so shall the river swarm with frogs, and they shall come up, and enter into thy house, and into thy bedchamber and upon thy couch, - and into the house of thy servants and among thy people, and into thine ovens and into thy kneading-troughs: both against thee, and against thy people, and against all thy servants, shall come up the frogs. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Say unto Aaron - Stretch forth thy hand with thy staff, over the streams over the rivers and over the pools, - and bring up the frogs, over the land of Egypt. So Aaron stretched forth his hand, over the waters of Egypt, - and the frog came up, and covered the land of Egypt. And the sacred scribes did in like manner, with their secret arts, - and brought up frogs over the land of Egypt. Then called Pharaoh for Moses and for Aaron and said - Make entreaty unto Yahweh, that he take away the frogs from me and from my people, - and I must lot the people go that they may sacrifice to Yahweh. And Moses said to Pharaoh - Explain thyself unto me: For what time, shall I make entreaty for thee and for thy servants and for thy people, to cause the frogs to be cut off, from thee and from thy houses, - only in the river, shall they remain? And he said - For to-morrow. And he said - According to thy word! that thou mayest know that there is none like Yahweh, our God: so the frogs shall depart - from thee and from thy houses and from thy servants and from thy people, - only in the river, shall they remain. Then went forth Moses and Aaron from Pharaoh, - and Moses made outcry unto Yahweh, over the matter of the frogs which he had appointed for Pharaoh. And Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, - and the frogs died, out of the houses and out of the yards, and out of the fields; and they piled them up, heaps - heaps, - and the land became loathsome. But when Pharaoh saw that there had come a respite, then made he his heart dull and hearkened not unto them, - as spake Yahweh. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Say unto Aaron - Stretch forth thy staff, and smite the dust of the land, - so shall it become gnats in all the land of Egypt. And they did so, and Aaron stretched forth his hand with his staff and smote the dust of the land, and there canto to be gnats, among men and among beasts, - all the dust of the land, became gnats, in all the land of Egypt. And the sacred scribes did in like manner with their secret arts, to bring forth the gnats, but they could not. So there came to be gnats, among men and among beasts. Then said the sacred scribes unto Pharaoh, The finger of God, it is! But the heart of Pharaoh waxed bold and he hearkened not unto them, as spake Yahweh. Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Rise thou early in the morning, and station thyself before Pharaoh, lo! he is coming forth to the waters, - then shalt thou say unto him - Thus, saith Yahweh: Let my people go, that they may serve me. But if thou art not letting my people go, behold me! sending forth - against thee, and against thy servants, and against thy people, and against thy houses the gad-fly, - and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of the gad-fly, moreover also the ground whereon, they are: then will I make to differ on that day, the land of Goshen wherein my people do dwell, so that there shall not be there a gad-fly! in order that thou mayest know, that I, Yahweh, am in the midst of the land; so will I put a separation betwixt my people and thy people. By to-morrow, shall come to pass this sign. And Yahweh did so, and brought a grievous gad-fly unto the house of Pharaoh and the houses of his servants and in all the land of Egypt, and the land was laid waste by reason of the gad-fly. Then did Pharaoh cry out - unto Moses and to Aaron, - and said-Go your way, sacrifice to your God, in the land. And Moses said: Not meet, is it, to do thus, for, an abomination to the Egyptians, we should sacrifice to Yahweh our God. Lo! could we sacrifice that which is an abomination to the Egyptians before their eyes and they not stone us? A journey of three days, must we go, in the desert, - then will we sacrifice to Yahweh our God, as, Yahweh, hath said unto us. Then said Pharaoh: I, will let you go - so shall ye sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the desert, only ye shall not go a, very long, journey, - make ye entreaty for me. And Moses said: Lo! I, am going out from thee and will make entreaty unto Yahweh, so will he take away the gad-fly - from Pharaoh from his servants, and from his people tomorrow, - only let not Pharaoh again deceive, in not letting the people go, to sacrifice to Yahweh. So Moses went out from Pharaoh, - and made entreaty unto Yahweh. And Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and took away the gad-fly, from Pharaoh from his servants and from his people, - there remained not, one. And Pharaoh made his heart dull, this time also, - and did not let the people go. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, - then shalt thou say unto him - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. But, if, refusing, thou art to let them go, - and still art holding them fast, lo! the hand of Yahweh, is coming on thy cattle which are in the field, on the horses, on the asses on the camels, on the herds and on the flocks, - a very grievous pestilence; and Yahweh will make a difference between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of the Egyptians, - so that there shall not die from among all that pertaineth to the sons of Israel, a thing! And Yahweh appointed a set time - saying, To-morrow, will Yahweh do this thing, in the land. So Yahweh did this thing, on the morrow, and all the cattle of the Egyptians died, - but of the cattle of the sons of Israel, died not one. And Pharaoh sent, and lo! there had not died of the cattle of Israel, so much as one. But Pharaoh's heart became dull, and he did not let the people go. Then said Yahweh unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take you your hands full of the ashes of an oven, - and Moses shall scatter them towards the heavens, before the eyes of Pharaoh: then shall they become fine dust, over all the land of Egypt, - and shall become on man and on beast, a burning sore, breaking out in pustules in all the land of Egypt. So they took the ashes of an oven and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses scattered them towards the heavens, - and it came to pass that there was a burning sore in pustules breaking out, among men, and among beasts; and the sacred scribes could not stand before Moses, because of the burning sore, - for the burning sore had come on the sacred scribes, and on all the Egyptians. But Yahweh let the heart of Pharaoh wax bold, and he hearkened not unto them, - as spake Yahweh unto Moses. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Rise thou early in the morning, and station thyself before Pharaoh, - then shalt thou say unto him - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of the Hebrews, Let my people go that they may serve me; for this time, am I, sending all my plagues unto thy heart, and amongst thy servants and amongst thy people, - to the intent thou mayest get to know, that there is none like me in all the earth. For now, might I have put forth my hand, and smitten thee and thy people with pestilence, - and thou shoulder have secretly disappeared from the earth; but, in very deed for this purpose, have I let thee remain, for the purpose of showing thee my might, - and that my name may be celebrated in all the earth. Even yet, art thou exalting thyself over my people - in not letting them go? Behold me! raining down, about this time to-morrow, an exceeding heavy hail, - such as hath not been in Egypt, from the day it was founded, even unto the present time. Now, therefore, send - bring into safety thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field, - as touching all men and beasts which shall be found in the field and shall not be withdrawn into shelter, the hail shall come down upon them and they shall die. He that feared the word of Yahweh, among the servants of Pharaoh, made his servants and his cattle flee, under shelter: but, whoso applied not his heart unto the word of Yahweh, left his servants and his cattle in the field. Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Stretch forth thy hand over the heavens, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, - on man and on beast, and on every herb of the field in the land of Egypt. So Moses stretched forth his staff over the heavens, and, Yahweh, gave forth thunderings and hail, and there came fire towards the earth, - and Yahweh rained down hail, on the land of Egypt. So there came to be hail, and fire catching hold of itself, in the midst of the hall, - exceeding heavy, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt, from the very time it became a nation. And the hail smote in all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast, - and every herb of the field, did the hail smite, and every tree of the field, did it shiver. Only in the land of Goshen, where were the sons of Israel, was there no hail. Then sent Pharaoh, and called for Moses and for Aaron, and said unto them - I have sinned this time, - Yahweh, is the righteous one, and, I and my people, are the wrong-doers. Make ye request unto Yahweh, and it shall be enough without there being any more thunderings of God, and hail, - and I must a let you go, and not again shall ye delay. And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, will I spread out my hands unto Yahweh, - the thunderings, shall cease, and, the hail, shall come no more, - that thou mayest know, that to Yahweh, belongeth the earth. But as touching thee and thy servants, I know that not yet will ye stand in awe of Yahweh Elohim. Now, the flax and the barley, were smitten, - for the barley, was in the ear, and, the flax, was in flower; but the wheat and the spelt, were not smitten, - for they were, not ripe. So Moses went away from Pharaoh out of the city, and spread out his hands unto Yahweh, - then did the thunderings and the hail cease, and, rain, was not poured out on the earth. And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunderings had ceased, he again sinned, - and made his heart dull, he, and his servants. And the heart of Pharaoh waxed bold, and he did not let the sons of Israel go, - as spake Yahweh by the hand of Moses. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, - for, I, have suffered his heart to be dull and the heart of his servants, that I may show these my signs, in their midst; and that thou mayest recount in the ears of thy son and thy sons' son, what I did in derision of the Egyptians, and my signs which I displayed among them, - so shall ye know that I, am Yahweh. And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of the Hebrews, How long hast thou refused to humble thyself before me? Let my people go that they may serve me. But if, refusing, thou art to let my people go, behold me bringing in tomorrow a locust within thy bounds; and it shall cover the eye of the land, so that one shall not be able to see the land, - and it shall eat the residue that hath escaped, that is left you from the hail, and shall eat up all the trees that sprout for you out of the field; and they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants and the houses of all the Egyptians, such as thy fathers and thy fathers' fathers have never seen, from the day they came to be on the ground, until this day. And he turned away, and came out from the presence of Pharaoh. Then said the servants of Pharaoh unto him, How long shall this man become to us a snare? Let the men go, that they may serve Yahweh their God. Not yet, knowest thou, that Egypt is, ruined? So Moses and Aaron were brought back unto pharaoh, and he said unto them - Go, serve Yahweh your God, - who, are they that are going? And Moses said, With our young and with our old, will we go, - with our sons and with our daughters with our flocks and with our herds, will we go, - for, the festival of Yahweh, is ours. Then he said unto them: Let Yahweh, so, be with you, when I let go you and your little ones! Look out for, harm, is straight before your faces. Not so! Go, I pray you, ye grown men and serve Yahweh, for, that, is what, ye, were seeking. And they were driven out from the presence of Pharaoh. Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Stretch forth thy hand over the land of Egypt for the locust, that it may come up over the land of Egypt, - and may eat up every herb of the land, all that the hail hath left. And Moses stretched forth his staff over the land of Egypt, and, Yahweh, caused an east wind to drive through the land, all that day, and all the night, - when the morning, had come, the east wind, had brought the locust. And the locust came up over all the land of Egypt, and settled in all the bounds of Egypt, - very grievous, before it, had not been such a locust as that, neither after it, should be one like it. So it covered the eye of all the land and the land was darkened, and it did eat every herb of the land and all the fruit of the trees, which the hail had left remaining, - so that there was not left remaining any green sprout in the trees or in the herb of the field in all the land of Egypt. Then hastened Pharaoh, to call for Moses and for Aaron, - and said - I have sinned against Yahweh your God, and against you. Now, therefore, forgive I pray you my sin - only this time, and make entreaty to Yahweh your God, - that he may take away from me, at least, this death. So he came out from Pharaoh, - and made entreaty unto Yahweh; and Yahweh turned back a west wind strong exceedingly, and carried away the locust and cast it into the Red Sea, - there was not left a single locust in all the bounds of Egypt. But Yahweh suffered the heart of Pharaoh to wax bold, - and he did not let the sons of Israel go. Then said Yahweh unto Moses: Stretch forth thy hand over the heavens, that there may be darkness, over the land of Egypt, - and that one may feel the darkness. So Moses stretched forth his hand over the heavens, - and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days; they saw not one another neither rose any man from his couch for three days, - but all the sons of Israel, had light in their dwellings. Then Pharaoh called out unto Moses and said - Go serve Yahweh, only, your flocks and your herds, shall be left, - even your little ones shall go with you. And Moses said, Even thou thyself, shalt give into our hands sacrifices and ascending-offerings, - so shall we present offerings to Yahweh our God. Moreover also, our own cattle, shall go with us - there shall not be left behind, a hoof, for thereof, must we take, to serve Yahweh our God, - even we ourselves, cannot know wherewith we must serve Yahweh, until we have come in thither. And Yahweh let the heart of Pharaoh wax bold, - and he was not willing to let them go. So Pharaoh said to him - Get thee from me, - take heed to thyself - do not any more! see my face, for in the day thou dost see my face, thou shalt die. And Moses said - Well hast thou spoken, - no more again to see thy face.


So Israel came into Egypt, And, Jacob, sojourned in the land of Ham;

Wonders in the land of Ham, Terrible things by the Red Sea.


Alas! for them who are going down to Egypt for help, On horses, would rely, - And have trusted - In chariots - because they are many, and In horsemen, because they are very bold, But have not looked unto the Holy One of Israel, And onto Yahweh, have not sought.

And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, - with warriors in every one.


And it came to pass that there was a famine, in the land, - so Abram went down towards Egypt, to sojourn there, because grievous, was the famine in the land. And it came to pass when he had come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife: Behold! I beseech thee I know that a woman fair to look on, thou art: so will it come to pass when the Egyptians behold thee, that they will say, His wife, this! and will slay me while thee, they preserve alive. read more.
Say, I beseech thee that my sister, art thou, - to the end it may be well with me for thy sake, so shall my soul be preserved alive because of thee. And so it was when Abram entered into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman, that fair, was she exceedingly. And the princes of Pharaoh beheld her, and praised her unto Pharaoh, - so the woman was taken to the house of Pharaoh; and with Abram, dealt he well for her sake, - so that he came to have flocks and herds and he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and she-asses and camels. And Yahweh plagued Pharaoh with great plagues, also his house, - for the matter of Sarai, wife of Abram. And Pharaoh called out to Abram, and said, What is this thou hast done to me? Wherefore didst thou not tell me, that she was, thy wife? Wherefore saidst thou My sister, she; and so I was about to take her to me, to wife? But now, lo! thy wife take her and go thy way. And Pharaoh gave command concerning him unto certain men, - and sent him away, with his wife and all that he had.

So Abram came up out of Egypt he and his wife and all that he had and Lot with him, towards the South.


Now, therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh God of hosts God of Israel - Wherefore, are ye committing a great wickedness against your own lives, that ye should cut off from you man and woman child and suckling, out of the midst of Judah, - so that there should not be left you a remnant: in that ye provoke me to anger by the works of your own hands, burning incense to other gods, in the land of Egypt, which ye have been entering to sojourn, - that ye should cut them off from you, and that ye should become a contempt and a reproach among all the nations of the earth? Have ye forgotten the wicked ways of your fathers and the wicked ways of the kings of Judah, and the wicked ways of his wives, and your own wicked ways, and the wicked ways of your own wives, - which they committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem? read more.
They have not been crushed, unto this day; neither have they been afraid, neither have they walked in my law, and in ray statutes, which I set before you and before your fathers, Therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts God of Israel, Behold me! setting my face against you for calamity, - even to cut off all Judah; and I will take the remnant of Judah who did set their faces to enter the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, in the land of Egypt, shall they fall by the sword, by famine, shall they be consumed, from the least even unto the greatest, by sword and by famine, shall they die, - so shall they become a curse, and an astonishment, and a contempt and a reproach; and I will bring punishment upon them who are dwelling in the land of Egypt, just as I brought punishment upon Jerusalem, - by sword, by famine and by pestilence; and there shall be neither escape nor survival, unto the remnant of Judah who have been entering, to sojourn there into the land of Egypt, - that they should return to the land of Judah even when they are lifting up their soul to return to dwell there, for none shall return, saving fugitives. Then all the men who knew that their wives were burning incense to other gods, and all the women standing by, a great convocation, - with all the people who were dwelling in the land of Egypt in Pathros, made answer unto Jeremiah, saying: As touching the word which thou hast spoken unto us, in the name of Yahweh we are not going to hearken unto thee; but, we will certainly do, the whole thing that hath gone forth out of our own mouth, by burning incense to the queen of the heavens, and pouring out to her drink-offerings, just as we and our fathers, and our kings and our princes, did, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, then were we filled with bread and became prosperous, and calamity, saw we none; whereas, from the very time we ceased burning incense to the queen of the heavens and pouring out to her drink-offerings, we have lacked everything, - and by sword and by famine, have we been consumed. And, though we are burning incense to the queen of the heavens and pouring out to her drink-offerings, is it, without our men that we have made to her sacrificial cakes as images of her and poured out to her, drink-offerings? Then spake Jeremiah unto all the people, - against the men and against the women, and against all the people who had been making any answer unto him, saying: Was it not, the very incense which ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye and your fathers your kings and your princes and the people of the land, was it not those very things, that Yahweh did remember, and that came up on his heart; so that Yahweh could no longer forbear because of the wickedness of your doings, because of the abominations which ye committed, - and your land became a desolation, and an astonishment, and a contempt without inhabitant - as at this day? Because that ye burned incense, and that ye sinned against Yahweh and hearkened not unto the voice of Yahweh, and, in his law and in his statutes and in his testimonies, did not walk, for this cause, did this calamity befall you - as at this day. And Jeremiah said unto all the people, and unto all the women, - Hear ye the word of Yahweh, all Judah, who are in the land of Egypt, - Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, saying, Ye and your wives, have both spoken with your mouth and with your hands, have ye fulfilled saying, We will, certainly perform, our vows which we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of the heavens, and to pour out to her drink-offerings: the women will certainly confirm, your vows, and, certainly perform, your vows. Therefore, hear ye the word of Yahweh, all Judah, who are dwelling in the land of Egypt, - Behold me! I have sworn by my great Name, Saith Yahweh, That my Name shall no more be invoked by the mouth of any man of Judah saying - By the life of My Lord, Yahweh in all the land of Egypt. Behold me! watching over them for calamity, and not for blessing, - so shall all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt, be consumed, by sword and by famine until there be an end of them. Yet, the fugitives of the sword, shall certainly return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah men easily counted, - that all the remnant of Judah who are entering Egypt to sojourn there, may know, whose word, shall stand, mine or theirs!


Son of man Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, hath made his army undergo a long service against Tyre, Every head, hath been made bald, and Every shoulder worn beret - But pay, hath he had none nor hath his army, out of Tyre, for the service wherewith he hath served against it. Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord Yahweh, Behold me! giving to Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, the land of Egypt, - And he shall carry off her multitude And capture her spoil And seize her prey, So shall she become pay for his army. As a reward for his labour wherewith he hath served, have I given to him the land of Egypt, - in that they wrought for me, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.

Let not the swift, flee, Nor let the hero, escape, - Northward, beside the river Euphrates, have they stumbled, and fallen. Who is it that is like the Nile when it riseth, Like rivers when his waters are tossed? Egypt was like the Nile when it riseth, And like rivers, when the waters are tossed: So he said - I will rise, I will cover the earth, I will destroy the city, and the dwellers therein. Mount the horses, And drive the chariots madly on, So let the heroes, go forth, - Ethiopians and Libyans that grasp the buckler, And Lydians that grasp - that tread - the bow, But, that day, belongeth to My Lord Yahweh of hosts - A day of avenging, to avenge him of his adversaries, When the sword shall devour and be filled, and be sated with their blood, - For, a sacrifice, hath My Lord, Yahweh of hosts, In the land of the North Towards the river Euphrates. Go up to Gilead and fetch balsam, O virgin daughter of Egypt! In vain, hast thou multiplied remedies, Healing, there is none for thee. The nations have heard of thy disgrace, And, thine outcry, hath filled the earth, - For hero against hero, have they stumbled, Together, have fallen, the twain!

And her daughter into captivity, shall wend their way.

Now, Joseph, was thirty years old, when he took his station, before Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Joseph went forth from before Pharaoh, and passed along through all the land of Egypt. And the land produced, in the seven years of plenty, by handfuls, And he gathered up all the food of the seven years in which there was plenty in the land of Egypt, and laid up food in cities - the food of the fields of the city. which were round about it, laid he up within it. read more.
Thus did Joseph heap up corn like the sand of the sea making it exceeding abundant, - until one hath left off reckoning, because it cannot be reckoned. Now to Joseph, were born two sons, ere yet came in the year of famine, - whom Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, bare to him. And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, - For God hath made me forget all my trouble, and all the house of my father. And, the name of the second, called he Ephraim, For God hath made me fruitful in the land of my humiliation. Then came to an end the seven years of the plenty, - which was in the land of Egypt; and the seven years of famine began to come in, according as Joseph had said, - and it came to pass that there was a famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt, there was bread. Yet was famine felt in all the land of Egypt, and the people made outcry; unto Pharaoh for bread, - and Pharaoh said to all Egypt, - Go ye unto Joseph, that which he saith to you, shall ye do. Now, the famine, was over all the face of the land, - so Joseph opened all places wherein it was and sold corn to the Egyptians, and the famine laid fast hold of the land of Egypt.


Then sent Pharaoh and summoned Joseph, and they hastened him out of the dungeon, - so he shaved himself and changed his garments, and came in unto Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, A dream, have I dreamed, but none can interpreted it, - but, I, have heard say concerning thee, that on hearing a dream, thou canst interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh saying, Not to me, doth it pertain! May, God grant in answer, the prosperity of Pharaoh! read more.
Then spake Pharaoh unto Joseph, - In my dream, there was I, standing on the lip of the river; When lo! out of the river, were coming up seven heifers, fat in flesh and comely in form, - and they fed among the rushes. And lo! seven other heifers, coming up after them, poor and very uncomely in form and lean in flesh, - I had never seen such in all the land of Egypt, for uncomeliness. Then did the lean and uncomely heifers eat up the first seven fat heifers; and they passed into their stomach yet could it not be known that they had passed into them, their appearance, being uncomely, as at the beginning. So I awoke. Then looked I in my dream, - And lo! seven ears, coming up on one stalk, full and good; And lo! seven ears, withered lean shrivelled by an east wind growing up after them. Then did the lean ears swallow up, the seven good ears. So I told these things unto the sacred scribes, but there was none that could explain them to me. Then said Joseph unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh, is, one. What God is about to do hath he announced to Pharaoh. The seven good heifers, are, seven years, and, the seven good ears are, seven years, - the dream, is, one. And the seven lean and uncomely heifers that were coming up after them, are seven years, and the seven lean ears, shrivelled by an east wind, will turn out to be - seven years of famine. The very word that I spake unto Pharaoh, what, God, is about to do, hath he showed unto Pharaoh. Lo! seven years, coming in, - of great plenty, in all the land of Egypt. Then shall arise seven years of famine, after them, so shall be forgotten all the plenty in the land of Egypt, - and the famine shall consume the land; neither shall the plenty in the land be discernible, because of that famine coming after, - for it shall be livery severe. And for that there was a repeating of the dream unto Pharaoh, twice, it is because the thing, is established, from God, and God is hastening to do it.


Now, the report, was heard by the house of Pharaoh, saying, The brethren of Joseph have come in, And it was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. So then Pharaoh said unto Joseph - Say unto thy brethren This, do, - lade your asses, and go enter into the land of Canaan; and fetch your father and your households and come in unto me, - that I may give you the best of the land of Egypt, and eat ye the fat of the land. read more.
Thou, therefore command them, This, do ye, - Take you out of the land of Egypt, waggons for your little ones and for your wives, so shall ye bring your father and come in. Your eye, moreover, let it not look with pity upon your goods, - for, the best of all the land of Egypt, is, yours.


But, bread, was there none in all the land, - for the famine was, very severe, - so that the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine, So Joseph gathered up all the silver that was found in the land of Egypt. and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which, they, were buying, - and Joseph brought the silver into the house of Pharaoh. And the silver was spent out of the land of Egypt and out of the land of Canaan, so all the Egyptians came in unto Joseph, saying - Do give us bread, for why should we die before thee, although, silver, hath failed? read more.
Then said Joseph: Give your cattle, and I will give you for your cattle, - if silver hath failed. So they brought in their cattle unto Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses and for the cattle of the flock and for the cattle of the herd, and for the asses, - and he provided them with bread for all their cattle, throughout that year. When that year was ended, then came they unto him in the second year and said to him - We will not hide from my lord, how that the silver and the herds of beasts for my lord are come to an end, - there is nothing left before my lord, save only our bodies and our ground: Wherefore should we die before thine eyes both we, and our ground? Buy thou us and our ground, for bread, - and we and our ground will become servants to Pharaoh, and give seed, that we may live, and not die, and the ground, not lie waste. So Joseph bought all the ground of the Egyptians for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine had laid fast hold upon them, - so the land became Pharaohs. And as for the people, he brought them into bondage as servants, - from one end of the boundary of Egypt unto the other end thereof. Only, the ground of the priests, bought he not, - for the priests had a statutory-portion, from Pharaoh and they had been eating their statutory-portion, which Pharaoh had given them, for which cause, they had not sold their ground. And Joseph said unto the people, Lo! I have bought you this day, and your ground for Pharaoh, - see, here is seed for you, so shall ye sow the ground; and it shall come to pass that, of the yield, ye shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, - but the four parts, shall be your own - for seed for the field, and for your food and for them who are in your households and for food for your little ones. And they said - Thou hast saved our lives! let us find favour in the eyes of my lord, so will we become Pharaohs servants. And Joseph appointed it for a statute - until this day, regarding the ground of Egypt, that Pharaoh, should take a fifth, - only, the ground of the priests, was, theirs alone, it had not become Pharaohs.


Now, therefore, let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, - and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, that he may appoint overseers over the land, - so shall he take up a fifth of the land of Egypt, during the seven years of plenty. And let them gather up all the food of these seven good years that are coming in, - and let them heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh as food in cities so shall they keep it. read more.
So shall the food become a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which shall come about in the land of Egypt, - and the land shall not be cut off in the famine.


And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, - See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. So Pharaoh took his ring from off his hands and put it upon Joseph's hand, - and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put the chain of gold upon his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which belonged to him, and they cried out before him. Bow the knee! thus setting him over all the land of Egypt. read more.

So he asked Pharaoh's courtiers who were with him in the ward of his lord's house, saying, Why are your faces troubled to-day! read more.

And they said unto Pharaoh - To sojourn in the land, are we come in, for there is no pasture for the flocks which pertain to thy servants, for, severe, is the famine in the land of Canaan.

Then said they unto Moses, Was it because there were no graves in Egypt, that thou didst fetch us to die in the desert? What is this thou hast done to us, bringing us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word which we spake unto thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians, - for it is better for us, to serve the Egyptians, than to die in the desert? And Moses said unto the people - Do not fear, stand still and see the salvation of Yahweh, which be will work for you to-day, - for as for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall not again see them any more to times age-abiding. Yahweh, will fight for you, - and, ye, shall forbear. And Yahweh said unto Moses, What outcry wouldst thou make unto me? Speak unto the sons of Israel, that they go forward; and, thou, lift high thy staff and stretch forth thy hand over the sea and cleave it asunder, - that the sons of Israel may enter into the midst of the sea on dry ground; and, I, behold me letting the heart of the Egyptians wax bold, that they may enter after them, - that I may get me honour over Pharaoh and over his forces, over his chariots, and over his horsemen, And the Egyptians shall know, that, I, am Yahweh, - when I have gotten me honour over Pharaoh, over his chariots and over his horsemen. And the messenger of God who was going on before the camp of Israel removed, and came on behind them, - and the pillar of cloud removed from before them, and stood behind them; so it came in between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel, so it became a cloud and darkness, and yet lighted up the night, - so that the one came not near unto the other, all the night. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and Yahweh carried away the sea by a mighty east wind all the night, and turned the sea into dry land, - and the waters were cloven asunder. Then went the sons of Israel into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, - and, the waters, to them, were a wall, on their right hand and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and entered after them - all the horses of Pharaoh his chariots and his horsemen, - into the midst of the sea. And it came to pass in the morning watch, that Yahweh looked down into the camp of the Egyptians, through the pillar of fire and cloud, and confused the camp of the Egyptians; and he took off the wheels of their chariots, and made them drive heavily, - so that the Egyptians said - We must flee from the face of Israel, for Yahweh, is fighting for them against the Egyptians.


And Joseph could not restrain himself before all who were stationed near him, so he cried out - Have forth every man from me! And there stood no man with him, when Joseph made himself known unto his brethren, Then gave he forth his voice in weeping, - and the Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard. Then said Joseph unto his brethren: I, am Joseph, is my father yet alive? But his brethren could not answer him, for they were terrified because of him. read more.
Then said Joseph unto his brethren - Draw near I pray you, unto me. And they drew near. And he said - I, am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. But, now, do not grieve, neither let it be vexing in your eyes, that ye sold me hither, - for, to save life, did God send me before you. For these two years, hath the famine been in the midst of the land, - and, yet five years, are there, in which there shall be neither ploughing, nor harvest. So then God sent me before you, to plant for you a remainder in the earth, - and to save you alive, by a great deliverance, Now, therefore it was not ye, who sent me hither, but, God, himself, - who also appointed me to be a father to Pharaoh, and a lord to all his house, and a ruler over all the land of Egypt.


And it came to pass that Yahweh, was with Joseph, so that he became a prosperous man, - and was in the house of his lord the Egyptian.

So Joseph found favour in his eyes and waited upon him, - and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had, gave he into his hand. read more.
And it came to pass from the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, that Yahweh blessed the house of the Egyptian, for Joseph's sake, - yea it came to pass, that the blessing of Yahweh, was with all that he had, in the house and in the field; so that he left all that he had in the hand of Joseph, and took note with him of nothing, save only the bread which, he himself, was eating.

So Joseph's ten brethren went down, - to buy corn from the Egyptians; read more.
but, Benjamin, Joseph's own brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren, - for he said, Lest there befall him any mischief. Thus came in the sons of Israel, to buy corn in the midst of them that came - for the famine was in the land of Canaan. Now, Joseph - he, it was, that was in power over the land, he, it was that was selling corn to all the people of the land, - so Joseph's brethren came in, and bowed themselves down to him, with their faces to the earth.


Then said the king of Egypt to the Hebrew midwives, - of whom, the name of the one was, Shiphrah, and, the name of the other Puah; - then he said - When ye act as midwives unto the Hebrew women, then shall ye look out for the sex, - If it is, a son, then shall ye kill it, But, if it is, a daughter, then shall it live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt spake unto them, - but suffered the male children to live. read more.
Then called the king of Egypt for the midwives, and said to them - Wherefore have ye done this thing, that ye should let the male children live? And the midwives said unto Pharaoh. Because not like the Egyptian women, are the Hebrew women, for they are full of life, ere yes the midwife can come in unto them, they have given birth, So then God dealt well with the midwives, - and the people multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty. And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made for them households. Then gave Pharaoh command to all his people saying - Every son that is born to the Hebrews, into the river, shall ye cast him; But every daughter, shall ye suffer to live.


Then spake Yahweh, unto Moses and unto Aaron, in the land of Egypt saying - This month, is, to you, a beginning of months, - the first, it is, to you, of the months of the year. Speak ye unto all the assembly of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month, then let them take to them, each man a lamb for his ancestral household, a lamb for a household. read more.
But if the household be too small for a lamb, then shall he and his neighbour that is near unto his house take one, according to the number of souls, - each man according to his eating, shall ye number for the lamb. A lamb without defect a male a year old, shall yours be, - from the sheep or from the goats, shall ye take it. So shall it be yours, to keep, until the fourteenth day of this month, - then shall all the convocation of the assembly of Israel slay it between the two evenings. And they shall take of the blood, and put upon the two door-posts and upon the upper-beam, - upon the houses wherein they are to eat it. Then shall they eat the flesh, in the same night, - roast with fire, and with unleavened cakes, with bitter herbs, shall they eat it. Do not eat of it underdone, nor cooked by boiling in water, - but roast with fire, its head with it, legs, and with its inward parts. And ye shall let nothing thereof remain until morning, - but that which is left remaining until morning, in the fire shall ye consume. And, thus, shall ye eat it, - your loins, girded, your sandals, on your feet, and, your staff, in your hand, - so shall ye eat it in haste, it is Yahweh's, passing over. I will pass along, therefore, throughout the land of Egypt this night, and will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from man even to beast, - and against all the gods of Egypt, will I execute judgments - I, Yahweh. Then shall the blood serve you for a sign, on the houses wherein ye are, then will I behold the blood, and will pass over you, - and there shall be among you no plague to destroy, when I smite the laud of Egypt. So shall this day serve you for a memorial, and ye shall celebrate it, as a festival to Yahweh, - to your generations - as an age-abiding statute, shall ye celebrate it. Seven days, unleavened cakes, shall ye eat, surely, on the first day, shall ye put away leaven, out of your houses, - for whosoever eateth what is leavened, then shall that soul be cut off out of Israel, from the first day, unto the seventh day. Both on the first day, a holy convocation, and on the seventh day - a holy convocation, shall there be to you, - no work, shall be done therein, save only what must be eaten by every soul, that alone, shall be done by you. So then ye shall observe the unleavened cakes, because on this self-same day, brought I forth your hosts out of the land of Egypt, - so then ye shall observe this day to your generations, as a statute age-abiding, In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, shall ye eat unleavened cakes, - until the one-and-twentieth day of the month in the evening, For seven days, leaven, shall not be found in your houses, - for, whosoever eateth what is leavened, then shall that soul be cut off out of the assembly of Israel, whether sojourner or native of the land. Nothing leavened, shall ye eat, - in all your dwellings, shall ye eat unleavened cakes. So then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, - Proceed and take for yourselves one of the flock according to your families, and slay the passover. Then shall ye take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and strike the upper beam and the two door-posts, with the blood which is in the basin, - and, ye, shall not go forth any man out of the entrance of his house, until morning, And Yahweh will pass along to plague the Egyptians, and when he beholdeth the blood upon the upper beam and upon the two door-pests, then will Yahweh pass over the entrance, and not suffer the destroyer to enter into your houses to inflict on you the plague. And ye shall observe this thing, - for a statute to thee and to thy sons unto times age-abiding. And so it shall come to pass when ye shall enter into the land which Yahweh will give you as he hath spoken, - and ye shall observe this service; and it shall come to pass that your sons shall say unto you, - What is this your service? Then shall ye say - A passover sacrifice, it is to Yahweh, who passed-over the houses of the sons of Israel, in Egypt, when he plagued the Egyptians but our houses, he delivered. Then did the people bend their heads and bow themselves down. And the sons of Israel went their way and did, - as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron, so, did they.

Come on! let us shew ourselves wise with regard to them, lest they so multiply that it shall come to pass when war befalleth us, that they also, shall join themselves unto them who hate us, and shall make war upon us. and then go up out of the land. So they set over them chiefs of tribute, to the end they might humiliate them with their burdens, - and they built store-cities for Pharaoh, even Pithom and Raamses.
