Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am
the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is
in mine hand upon the waters which 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 stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that
there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were
in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were
in the river were turned to blood.
