Moses was brought up as a rich Egyptian boy, he felt very unhappy about the treatment of his people, the Hebrew in Egypt. He killed an Egyptian man who beat up a Hebrew and hid him in the sand. When Pharaoh heard about this, he wanted to kill Moses, so Moses fled from Egypt and went to live in the land of Midian where he married, had children and led a happy life.

One day, when Moses was leading the flock to the far side of the desert and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. The angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. God told Moses to go back to Egypt and lead his people out of their lives of slavery, because they were cruelly treated by Pharaoh.

Moses returned to Egypt and with his brother Aaron, went to see Pharaoh. They told Pharaoh that God wanted him to set the Hebrews free and allowed them to leave Egypt, but Pharaoh refused to do it.

To show Pharaoh the power of God, Aaron threw his rod to the ground and immediately it turned into a snake. Pharaoh was not impressed and ordered his magicians to use their tricks to do the same with their own rods.

Later, while taking a walk by the riverside, Moses met Pharaoh and told him that God wanted him to set the Hebrews free or he shall turn the river into blood. Again, Pharaoh refused. Moses waved his rod towards the river and the water turned to blood. All the fish in the river died and the water was unfit for the people to drink This made Pharaoh more determined than ever to defy God. He treated the Hebrews more cruelly than before.

God rained down multitudes of frogs from the sky, lice appeared all over the land and came swarms of flies carrying diseases. Pharaoh continued to defy God.

God sent plague to Egypt and all the cattle in Egypt died. Egyptians themselves suffered an outbreak of boils on their bodies. Hailstones and fireballs fell on their homes. A huge wind brought clouds of locusts which blotted out the sky and or three days darkness covered the land.

The last plague that God sent on Pharaoh was to kill all their firstborn-both men and animals of all the Egyptian families. At midnight, God swept through Egypt and brought death to the first born of every family whose door was not smeared with blood. Even Pharaoh’s own son died that night and finally he gave in and told Moses and Aaron that at last the Hebrews were allowed to leave the land of Egypt.
