English Standard Version
Chapter 8 22
But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where my people dwell, so that no swarms of flies shall be there, that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. 23
Thus I will put a division between my people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall happen.”’” 24
And the LORD did so. There came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and into his servants’ houses. Throughout all the land of Egypt the land was ruined by the swarms of flies. 25
Then Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron and said, “Go, sacrifice to your God within the land.” 26
But Moses said, “It would not be right to do so, for the offerings we shall sacrifice to the LORD our God are an abomination to the Egyptians. If we sacrifice offerings abominable to the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not stone us?
