Bible: Exodus 8:16-19

8:16

The Third Blow: Gnats

1 

The Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Extend your staff and strike the dust of the ground, and it will become 2  gnats 3  throughout all the land of Egypt.’ 8:17 They did so; Aaron extended his hand with his staff, he struck the dust of the ground, and it became gnats on people 4  and on animals. All the dust of the ground became gnats throughout all the land of Egypt. 8:18 When 5  the magicians attempted 6  to bring forth gnats by their secret arts, they could not. So there were gnats on people and on animals. 8:19 The magicians said 7  to Pharaoh, “It is the finger 8  of God!” But Pharaoh’s heart remained hard, 9  and he did not listen to them, just as the Lord had predicted.
