Aaron’s Staff becomes a Snake

Exodus 7:8-13. Aaron’s staff became a snake and then turned back to a staff under God’s Command in front of the Pharaoh.

This event happened before the Plague of Blood happened, which was the first plague out of ten plagues.

Moses was eighty years old and Aaron was eighty-three years old when this happened.

Throughout the time with the Pharaoh of Egypt God spoke to Moses who talked to Aaron who then told the Pharaoh.

Aaron’s Staff Becomes a Snake

7:8 Then the LORD told Moses and Aaron, 9 “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Perform a miraculous sign,’ then you are to say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it in front of Pharaoh.’ It will become a serpent.”

10 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh and did what the LORD had commanded them. Aaron threw his staff in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and sorcerers, and they—along with the Egyptian magicians—did the same thing with their secret arts. 12 So each one threw down his staff and it became a serpent, but Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. 13 Yet Pharaoh’s heart was stubborn and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had said would happen.
