the nation
Genesis 15:14-16
14
but I will bring judgment on the nation which they serve, and afterward they shall come out with great possessions.
15
As for yourself, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried in a good old age.
16
And they shall come back here in the fourth generation; for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete."
Exodus 7:1-14
1
And the LORD said to Moses, "See, I make you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.
2
You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go out of his land.
3
But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my signs and wonders in the land of Egypt,
4
Pharaoh will not listen to you; then I will lay my hand upon Egypt and bring forth my hosts, my people the sons of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of judgment.
5
And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt and bring out the people of Israel from among them."
6
And Moses and Aaron did so; they did as the LORD commanded them.
7
Now Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty- three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
8
And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
9
"When Pharaoh says to you, `Prove yourselves by working a miracle,' then you shall say to Aaron, `Take your rod and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.'"
10
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did as the LORD commanded; Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent.
11
Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers; and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same by their secret arts.
12
For every man cast down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
13
Still Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them; as the LORD had said.
14
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuses to let the people go.
Nehemiah 9:9-11
9
"And thou didst see the affliction of our fathers in Egypt and hear their cry at the Red Sea,
10
and didst perform signs and wonders against Pharaoh and all his servants and all the people of his land, for thou knewest that they acted insolently against our fathers; and thou didst get thee a name, as it is to this day.
11
And thou didst divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on dry land; and thou didst cast their pursuers into the depths, as a stone into mighty waters.
Psalm 74:12-14
12
Why dost thou hold back thy hand, why dost thou keep thy right hand in thy bosom?
13
Yet God my King is from of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
14
Thou didst divide the sea by thy might; thou didst break the heads of the dragons on the waters.
Psalm 78:43-51
43
They did not keep in mind his power, or the day when he redeemed them from the foe;
44
when he wrought his signs in Egypt, and his miracles in the fields of Zo'an.
45
He turned their rivers to blood, so that they could not drink of their streams.
46
He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them, and frogs, which destroyed them.
47
He gave their crops to the caterpillar, and the fruit of their labor to the locust.
48
He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycamores with frost.
49
He gave over their cattle to the hail, and their flocks to thunderbolts.
50
He let loose on them his fierce anger, wrath, indignation, and distress, a company of destroying angels.
51
He made a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death, but gave their lives over to the plague.
Psalm 105:27-36
27
They wrought his signs among them, and miracles in the land of Ham.
28
He sent darkness, and made the land dark; they rebelled against his words.
29
He turned their waters into blood, and caused their fish to die.
30
Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings.
31
He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats throughout their country.
32
He gave them hail for rain, and lightning that flashed through their land.
33
He smote their vines and fig trees, and shattered the trees of their country.
34
He spoke, and the locusts came, and young locusts without number;
35
which devoured all the vegetation in their land, and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36
He smote all the first-born in their land, the first issue of all their strength.
Psalm 135:8
He it was who smote the first-born of Egypt, both of man and of beast;
Psalm 135:9
who in thy midst, O Egypt, sent signs and wonders against Pharaoh and all his servants;
Psalm 136:10-15
10
to him who smote the first-born of Egypt, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
11
and brought Israel out from among them, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
12
with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
13
to him who divided the Red Sea in sunder, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
14
and made Israel pass through the midst of it, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
15
but overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
Isaiah 51:9
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in days of old, the generations of long ago. Was it not thou that didst cut Rahab in pieces, that didst pierce the dragon?
Isaiah 51:10
Was it not thou that didst dry up the sea, the waters of the great deep; that didst make the depths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass over?
and serve
Exodus 3:12
He said, "But I will be with you; and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you: when you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God upon this mountain."
