Exodus 8:16-19 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Plague of Insects

16 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become [a]gnats through all the land of Egypt.’” 17 They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were [b]gnats on man and beast. All the dust of the earth became [c]gnats through all the land of Egypt. 18 The [d]magicians tried with their secret arts to bring forth [e]gnats, but they could not; so there were [f]gnats on man and beast. 19 Then the [g]magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh’s heart was [h]hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had said.
