Moshe said, “Here is what YHVH says: ‘About midnight I will go out into Egypt, and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the slave-girl at the handmill, and all the firstborn of the livestock. There will be a horrendous wailing throughout all the land of Egypt — there has never been another like it, and there never will be again. ~ Exodus 11:4-7
This was to be the final plague against Pharaoh and Egypt – the death of the firstborn. YHVH gave His people, and any Egyptian who followed, instructions on how to survive this plague. A sign of their faith that He would pass over their homes.
