Yovel Jubilees 48
:And in the sixth year of the third week of the forty-ninth jubilee thou didst depart and
dwell <in [2372 A.M.] the land of Mid'yan (4080)>, five weeks and one year. And thou didst return into
Mits'rayim (4714) in the second week
in the second year in the fiftieth jubilee.
:And thou thyself knowest what He spake unto
thee on [2410 A.M.] Mount Sinay (5514), and what prince Mastêmâ desired to do with thee when thou
wast returning into Mits'rayim (4714)
<on the way when thou didst meet him at the lodging-place>.
:Did he not with all his
power seek to slay thee and deliver Mits'rayim (4714) out of thy hand when he saw that thou wast
sent to execute
judgment and vengeance on Mits'rayim (4714) ?
:And I delivered thee out of his hand, and
thou didst perform the signs and wonders which thou wast sent to perform in Mits'rayim (4714) against
against all his house, and against his servants and his people.
:And Y'hovah (3068) executed a
great vengeance on them for Yis'ra'el (3478) sake, and smote them through (the plagues of) blood and
frogs, lice and dog-flies, and malignant boils breaking forth in blains; and their cattle by death; and
by hail-stones, thereby He destroyed everything that grew for them; and by locusts which
devoured the residue which had been left by the hail, and by darkness; and <by the death> of the
men and animals, and on all their idols Y'hovah (3068) took vengeance and burned them with

:And everything took place according to thy words; ten great and terrible judgments
came on the
land of Mits'rayim (4714) that thou mightest execute vengeance on it for Yis'ra'el (3478).
:And Y'hovah (3068) did
everything for Yis'ra'el (3478) sake, and according to His covenant, which he had ordained with Av'raham (85)
would take vengeance on them as they had brought them by force into bondage.
the prince Mastêmâ stood up against thee, and sought to cast thee into the hands of Pharaoh, and
the Mits'rayim (4714) sorcerers,
:and they stood up and wrought before thee the evils indeed we
them to work, but the remedies we did not allow to be wrought by their hands.
Y'hovah (3068) smote them with malignant ulcers, and they were not able to stand, for we destroyed
them so that
they could not perform a single sign.
:And notwithstanding all (these) signs and
wonders the prince Mastêmâ was not put to shame because he took courage and cried to the
Mits'rayim (4714) s to pursue after thee with all the powers of Mits'rayim (4714), with their chariots, and with
their horses, and with all the
hosts of the peoples of Mits'rayim (4714).
:And I stood between Mits'rayim (4714) and Yis'ra'el (3478), and we
delivered Yis'ra'el (3478) out of his hand, and out of the hand of his people, and Y'hovah (3068) brought them
midst of the sea as if it were dry land.
:And all the peoples whom he brought to pursue
after Yis'ra'el (3478), Y'hovah (3068) our Elohim (430) cast them into the midst of the sea, into the depths of the abyss
beneath the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478), even as the people of Mits'rayim (4714) had cast their children into the river He
took vengeance on 1,000,000 of them, and one thousand strong and energetic men were

:And on the nineteenth we let them loose that they might help
Mits'rayim (4714) s and pursue the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478).
:And he hardened their hearts and made
them stubborn, and the device was devised by Y'hovah (3068) our Elohim (430) that He might smite the
Mits'rayim (4714) s and
cast them into the sea.
:And on the fourteenth we bound him that he might not accuse
the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478) on the day when they asked Mits'rayim (4714) for vessels and garments, vessels
of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of bronze, in order to despoil Mits'rayim (4714) in return for
the bondage in
which they had forced them to serve.
:And we did not lead forth the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478)
from Mits'rayim (4714) empty handed.
