The Third Plague: Gnats

Exodus 8

16 So the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become 1 lice throughout all the land of Egypt.' " 17 And they did so. For Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and struck the dust of the earth, and n it became lice on man and beast. All the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 18 Now o the magicians so worked with their 2 enchantments to bring forth lice, but they p could not. So there were lice on man and beast. 19 Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, "This is q the 3 finger of God." But Pharaoh's r heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, just as the LORD had said.
