Pharaoh had hardened his heart after God turned the waters to blood.
So, God commanded Moses to speak to Pharaoh again commanding him
to let Israel leave Egypt.
God told Pharaoh that he would bring frogs out of the river to
make their lives miserable, if he did not let Israel go. God said
that the frogs would be so bad that they would be in their houses,
beds, and cooking utensils.
Pharaoh did not let Israel leave Egypt to serve God. So, God told
Aaron to stretch out his hand with his rod over the streams, rivers,
and ponds causing frogs to come upon the land of Egypt.
Then, the magicians did a trick and caused frogs to come upon the
land and Pharaoh hardened his heart. But after a while, Pharaoh
got tired of the frogs and asked Moses to pray to God that the frogs
would go away.
Pharaoh promised that he would let Israel leave Egypt if God took
the frogs away. So Moses prayed to God; and God took the frogs away.
But Pharaoh's heart grew hard again and he did not keep his promise.
Since Pharaoh did not keep his promise to let Israel leave Egypt,
God told Aaron to stretch out his hand turning dust to lice. The
magicians could not bring forth lice. So, they told Pharaoh that
the finger of God had made the lice in Egypt. But Pharaoh's heart
grew hard and he did not obey God.
