The First Plague: Waters Turned to Blood
(Exodus 7:14-25)

Pharaoh's heart had grown hard after seeing Aaron's rod turn into a serpent and eat the magician's rods. Pharaoh did not fear God. So God brought ten plagues upon the Egyptians until Pharaoh let the children of Israel go to Canaan.

The Lord told Moses to meet with Pharaoh and tell him to let Israel go! The Lord told Pharaoh that He was going to turn the waters into blood. The fish would die, the water would stink, and the people could not drink the water. Then Pharaoh would know that God was the Lord.

Moses and Aaron obeyed God. They spoke to Pharaoh just like God had told them to speak. And they lifted the rod over the waters just like God had commanded them. Then the water turned to blood, the fish died, and the people could not drink the water.

The Egyptians dug wells to get water. The magicians did a trick turning some water into blood and Pharaoh's heart grew hard. Then Pharaoh went to his house just like nothing had happened. So, God brought another plague upon Egypt.
