Egypt: the Plagues and the Exodus Quoting: aether
God commanded Moses to go to Egypt and deliver his fellow Hebrews from bondage. On the way Moses was nearly killed by God because his son was not circumcised. He was met on the way by his elder brother, Aaron, and gained a hearing with his oppressed kindred after they returned to Egypt, who believed Moses and Aaron after they saw the signs that were performed in the midst of the Israelite assembly. Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and told him that the Lord God of Israel wanted Pharaoh to permit the Israelites to celebrate a feast in the wilderness. Pharaoh replied that he did not know their God and would not permit them to go. They gained a second hearing with Pharaoh and changed Moses' rod into a serpent, but Pharaoh's magicians did the same with their rods. Moses and Aaron met Pharaoh at the Nile riverbank, and Moses had Aaron turn the river to blood, but Pharaoh's magicians could do the same. Moses obtained a fourth meeting, and had Aaron bring frogs from the Nile to overrun Egypt, but Pharaoh's magicians were able to do the same thing. Pharaoh asked Moses to remove the frogs and promised to let the Israelites go observe their feast in the wilderness in return. Pharaoh decided against letting the Israelites leave to observe the feast. Eventually Pharaoh let the Hebrews depart after Moses' God sent ten plagues upon the Egyptians. The third and fourth were the plague of gnats and flies. The fifth was diseases on the Egyptians' cattle, oxen, goats, sheep, camels, and horses. The sixth was boils on the skins of Egyptians. Seventh, fiery hail and thunder. The eighth plague was locusts. The ninth plague was total darkness. The tenth plague was the slaying of the Egyptian male first-born children, whereupon such terror seized the Egyptians that they ordered the Hebrews to leave. The events are commemorated as Passover, referring to how the plague "passed over" the houses of the Israelites while smiting the Egyptians Quoting: observation

Here is as it is described in the Kolbrin.
The Ten Plagues of Egypt Quoting: Seer777
THE DARK DAYS
The people cried out to the Pharaoh in their distress, but he stopped his ears and acted like a deaf man.
Dust and smoke clouds darkened the sky and coloured the waters upon which they fell with a bloody hue.
Plague was throughout the land, the river was bloody and blood was everywhere. The water was vile and menís
stomachs shrank from drinking. Those who did drink from the river vomited it up, for it was polluted.
The dust tore wounds in the skin of man and beast. In the glow of the Destroyer the Earth was filled with
redness. Vermin bred and filled the air and face of the Earth with loathsomeness. Wild beascs, afflicted with
torments under the lashing sand and ashes, came out of their lairs in the wastelands and caveplaces and stalked
the abodes of men. All the tame beasts whimpered and the land was filled with the cries of sheep and moans of
Trees, throughout the land, were destroyed and no herb or fruit was to be found. The face of the land was
battered and devastated by a hail of stones which smashed down all that stood in the path of the torrent. They
swept down in hot showers, and strange flowing fire ran along the ground in their wake.
The fish of the river died in the polluted waters; worms, insects and reptiles sprang up from the Earth in huge
numbers. Great gusts of wind brought swarms of locusts which covered the sky.
As the Destroyer flung itself through the Heavens, it blew great gusts of cinders across the face of the land. The gloom of a long night spread a dark mantle of blackness which extinguished every ray of light. None knew when it was day and when it was
night, for the sun cast no shadow.
The darkness was not the clean blackness of night, but a thick darkness in which the breath of men was stopped
in their throats. Men gasped in a hot cloud of vapour which enveloped all the land and snuffed out all lamps and
fires. Men were benumbed and lay moaning in their beds. None spoke to another or took food, for they were
overwhelmed with despair. Ships were sucked away from their moorings and destroyed in great whirlpools. It
was a time of undoing.
The Earth turned over, as clay spun upon a potterís wheel. The whole land was filled with uproar from the thunder of the Destroyer overhead and the cry of the people. There as the sound of moaning and lamentation on every side.
