17 Thus says the Lord: “By this (A)you shall know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will strike the waters which are in the river with the rod that is in my hand, and (B)they shall be turned (C)to blood. 18 And the fish that are in the river shall die, the river shall stink, and the Egyptians will (D)loathe[a] to drink the water of the river.” ’ ”

19 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and (E)stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their streams, over their rivers, over their ponds, and over all their pools of water, that they may become blood. And there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in buckets of wood and pitchers of stone.’ ” 20 And Moses and Aaron did so, just as the Lord commanded. So he (F)lifted up the rod and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants. And all the (G)waters that were in the river were turned to blood.
