G-d tells Moshe to inform
the Jewish People that He is going to take them
out of Egypt; however, the Jewish People do not listen. G-d then
commands Moshe to go to Pharaoh and ask him to free the Jewish People.
Although Aharon shows Pharaoh a sign by turning a staff into a snake,
Pharaoh's magicians copy the sign, emboldening Pharaoh to refuse the request.
G-d punishes the Egyptians and sends plagues of blood and frogs,
but the magicians copy the miracles on a smaller scale,
again encouraging Pharaoh to refuse Moshe's request.
After the plague of lice, even Pharaoh's magicians
concede that only
The onslaught continues with wild animals, pestilence,
boils and fiery hail.
