The second plague is of frogs: Pharao promiseth to let the Israelites go, but breaketh his promise. The third plague is of sciniphs. The fourth is of flies. Pharao again promiseth to dismiss the people, but doth it not.
1 And the Lord said to Moses: Go in to Pharao, and thou shalt say to him: Thus saith the Lord: Let my people go to sacrifice to me.
Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen : Ingredere ad Pharaonem, et dices ad eum : Haec dicit Dominus : Dimitte populum meum, ut sacrificet mihi :
2 But if thou wilt not let them go behold I will strike all thy coasts with frogs.
sin autem nolueris dimittere, ecce ego percutiam omnes terminos tuos ranis,
3 And the river shall bring forth an abundance of frogs: which shall come up, and enter into thy house, and thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and in the houses of thy servants, and to thy people, and into thy ovens, and into the remains of thy meats;
et ebulliet fluvius ranis : quae ascendent, et ingredientur domum tuam, et cubiculum lectuli tui, et super stratum tuum, et in domos servorum tuorum, et in populum tuum, et in furnos tuos, et in reliquias ciborum tuorum :
4 And the frogs shall come in to thee and to thy people, and to all thy servants.
et ad te, et ad populum tuum, et ad omnes servos tuos intrabunt ranae.
5 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to Aaron, Stretch forth thy hand upon the streams and upon the rivers and the pools, and bring forth frogs upon the land of Egypt.
Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen : Dic ad Aaron : Extende manum tuam super fluvios ac super rivos et paludes, et educ ranas super terram Aegypti.
6 And Aaron stretched forth his hand upon the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
Et extendit Aaron manum super aquas Aegypti, et ascenderunt ranae, operueruntque terram Aegypti.
7 And the magicians also by their enchantments did in like manner, and they brought forth frogs upon all the land of Egypt.
Fecerunt autem et malefici per incantationes suas similiter, eduxeruntque ranas super terram Aegypti.
8 But Pharao called Moses and Aaron and said to them: Pray ye to the Lord to take away the frogs from me and from my people; and I will let the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.
Vocavit autem Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et dixit eis : Orate Dominum ut auferat ranas a me et a populo meo, et dimittam populum ut sacrificet Domino.
9 And Moses said to Pharao: Set me a time when I shall pray for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, that the frogs may be driven away from thee and from thy house, and from thy servants, and from thy people: and may remain only in the river.
Dixitque Moyses ad Pharaonem : Constitue mihi quando deprecer pro te, et pro servis tuis, et pro populo tuo, ut abigantur ranae a te, et a domo tua, et a servis tuis, et a populo tuo : et tantum in flumine remaneant.
10 And he answered: Tomorrow. But he said: I will do according to thy word; that thou mayst know that there is none like to the Lord our God.
Qui respondit : Cras. At ille : Juxta, inquit, verbum tuum faciam : ut scias quoniam non est sicut Dominus Deus noster.
11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy house, and from thy servants, and from thy people; and shall remain only in the river.
Et recedent ranae a te, et a domo tua, et a servis tuis, et a populo tuo : et tantum in flumine remanebunt.
12 And Moses and Aaron went forth from Pharao: and Moses cried to the Lord for the promise, which he had made to Pharao concerning the frogs.
Egressique sunt Moyses et Aaron a Pharaone : et clamavit Moyses ad Dominum pro sponsione ranarum quam condixerat Pharaoni.
13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses: and the frogs died out of the houses, and out of the villages, and out of the fields:
Fecitque Dominus juxta verbum Moysi : et mortuae sunt ranae de domibus, et de villis, et de agris.
14 And they gathered them together into immense heaps, and the land was corrupted.
Congregaveruntque eas in immensos aggeres, et computruit terra.
15 And Pharao seeing that rest was given, hardened his own heart, and did not hear them, as the Lord had commanded.
Videns autem Pharao quod data esset requies, ingravavit cor suum, et non audivit eos, sicut praeceperat Dominus.
16 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to Aaron, Stretch forth thy rod, and strike the dust of the earth: and may there be sciniphs in all the land of Egypt.
Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen : Loquere ad Aaron : Extende virgam tuam, et percute pulverem terrae : et sint sciniphes in universa terra Aegypti.
17 And they did so. And Aaron stretched forth his hand, holding the rod: and he struck the dust of the earth, and there came sciniphs on men and on beasts: all the dust of the earth was turned into sciniphs through all the land of Egypt.
Feceruntque ita. Et extendit Aaron manum, virgam tenens : percussitque pulverem terrae, et facti sunt sciniphes in hominibus, et in jumentis : omnis pulvis terrae versus est in sciniphes per totam terram Aegypti.
18 And the magicians with their enchantments practiced in like manner, to bring forth sciniphs, and they could not and there were sciniphs as well on men as on beasts.
Feceruntque similiter malefici incantationibus suis, ut educerent sciniphes, et non potuerunt : erantque sciniphes tam in hominibus quam in jumentis.
19 And the magicians said to Pharao This is the finger of God. And Pharao heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them, as the Lord had commanded.
Et dixerunt malefici ad Pharaonem : Digitus Dei est hic; induratumque est cor Pharaonis, et non audivit eos sicut praeceperat Dominus.
20 The Lord also said to Moses: Arise early, and stand before Pharao: for he will go forth to the waters: and thou shalt say to him: Thus saith the Lord: Let my people go to sacrifice to me.
Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen : Consurge diluculo, et sta coram Pharaone : egredietur enim ad aquas : et dices ad eum : Haec dicit Dominus : Dimitte populum meum ut sacrificet mihi.
21 But if thou wilt not let them go, behold I will send in upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy houses all kind of flies: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be filled with flies of divers kinds, and the whole land wherein they shall be.
Quod si non dimiseris eum, ecce ego immittam in te, et in servos tuos, et in populum tuum, et in domos tuas, omne genus muscarum : et implebuntur domus Aegyptiorum muscis diversi generis, et universa terra in qua fuerint.
22 And I will make the land of Gessen wherein my people is, wonderful in that day, so that flies shall not be there: and thou shalt know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.
Faciamque mirabilem in die illa terram Gessen, in qua populus meus est, ut non sint ibi muscae : et scias quoniam ego Dominus in medio terrae.
23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: tomorrow shall this sign be.
Ponamque divisionem inter populum meum et populum tuum : cras erit signum istud.
24 And the Lord did so. And there came a very grievous swarm of flies into the houses of Pharao and of his servants, and into all the land of Egypt: and the land was corrupted by this kind of flies.
Fecitque Dominus ita. Et venit musca gravissima in domos Pharaonis et servorum ejus, et in omnem terram Aegypti : corruptaque est terra ab hujuscemodi muscis.
25 And Pharao called Moses and Aaron, and said to them: Go, and sacrifice to your God in this land.
Vocavitque Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et ait eis : Ite et sacrificate Deo vestro in terra hac.
26 And Moses said: It cannot be so: for we shall sacrifice the abominations of the Egyptians to the Lord our God: now if we kill those things which the Egyptians worship, in their presence, they will stone us.
Et ait Moyses : Non potest ita fieri : abominationes enim Aegyptiorum immolabimus Domino Deo nostro : quod si mactaverimus ea quae colunt Aegyptii coram eis, lapidibus nos obruent.
27 We will go three days' journey into the wilderness: and we will sacrifice to the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.
Viam trium dierum pergemus in solitudinem : et sacrificabimus Domino Deo nostro, sicut praecepit nobis.
28 And Pharao said: I will let you go to sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness: but go no farther: pray for me.
Dixitque Pharao : Ego dimittam vos ut sacrificetis Domino Deo vestro in deserto : verumtamen longius ne abeatis, rogate pro me.
29 And Moses said: I will go out from thee, and will pray to the Lord: and the flies shall depart from Pharao, and from his servants, and from his people tomorrow: but do not deceive any more, in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.
At ait Moyses : Egressus a te, orabo Dominum : et recedet musca a Pharaone, et a servis suis, et a populo ejus cras : verumtamen noli ultra fallere, ut non dimittas populum sacrificare Domino.
30 So Moses went out from Pharao, and prayed to the Lord.
Egressusque Moyses a Pharaone, oravit Dominum.
31 And he did according to his word: and he took away the flies from Pharao, and from his servants, and from his people: there was not left so much as one.
Qui fecit juxta verbum illius, et abstulit muscas a Pharaone, et a servis suis, et a populo ejus : non superfuit ne una quidem.
32 And Pharao's heart was hardened, so that neither this time would he let the people go.
Et ingravatum est cor Pharaonis, ita ut nec hac quidem vice dimitteret populum.
