Bible: Exodus 8:20-23


The Fourth Blow: Flies


The Lord 2  said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and position yourself before Pharaoh as he goes out to the water, and tell him, ‘Thus says the Lord, “Release my people that they may serve me! 8:21 If you do not release 3  my people, then I am going to send 4  swarms of flies 5  on you and on your servants and on your people and in your houses. The houses of the Egyptians will be full of flies, and even the ground they stand on. 6  8:22 But on that day I will mark off 7  the land of Goshen, where my people are staying, 8  so that no swarms of flies will be there, that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of this land. 9  8:23 I will put a division 10  between my people and your people. This sign will take place 11  tomorrow.”’
