Bringing the Jewish Exodus from Egypt to Life

January 25, 2015

4 min read

Every year, the Jewish nation recounts the story of the 10 plagues against Egypt in the weekly Torah portion and during the Passover seder. The 10 plagues were brought upon the Egyptians during the time of Jewish slavery to show the Israelites that the God of their fathers was alive and worthy of their worship. A new book, “Every Picture Tells a Story,” brings the story of the Jewish exodus to life with a new illustrative text, accompanied by the original Biblical Hebrew verse and an English translation.

blood exodus

1. “And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.” (Exodus 7:19)

frogs exodus

2. “And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs. And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneading troughs. And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.” (Exodus 8:2-4)

4. “Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.” (Exodus 8:21)

6. “And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 9:8-9)
