20 Description The ten plagues are enclosed within ten small rectangular panels arranged in two columns of five panels each on the full page. The panels are to be read across the page beginning from top right. An identifying Hebrew inscription is written above each panel. The first panel, for the plague Blood, shows various people standing beside a river scattered with dead fish, with a cityscape in the background. Three people on the right appear to be digging for fresh water. In the central foreground stands a bearded man (either Pharoah or Moses) wearing a hat and a long robe. The second panel, for the plague Frogs, encloses a scene illustrating the verse, "And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly which shall go ... into thy bedchamber and upon thy bed ... and into thine ovens" (Ex. 7:28). Pharoah stands in the central foreground in a bedroom scattered with frogs. He wears a crown and holds a scepter. Three of his attendants stand behind while a flaming furnace can be seen in the background on the left. The third panel, for the plague Lice, encloses a central seated figure flanked by four standing figures in an open space with an Italianate cityscape in the background. They scratch their bodies as lice swarm around them. The fourth panel, for the plague Beasts, shows wild animals pursuing a group of people who flee to the right towards the city gate for refuge. In the foreground, animals trample the corpses of two people. The city can be seen in the background. The fifth panel, for the plague Murrain, shows dead animals lying in the foreground with a cityscape in the background. People stand around them gesturing in distress. The sixth panel, for the plague Boils, shows Moses and Aaron standing on the left throwing ashes into the air bringing the plague upon Egypt (Ex. 9:10). Four figures sit or stand in the foreground. The seventh panel, for the plague Hail, shows a shower of hailstones falling from clouds onto people and animals who run to the left for shelter. The eighth panel, for the plague Locusts, shows a swarm of locusts approaching from the right towards a city. Three people stand by the city talking amongst each other. The ninth panel, for the plague Darkness, shows a city street partially obscured by darkness. The section on the left, belonging to the Egyptians, is dark and covered by hatching while the section on the right, belonging to the Israelites, remains illuminated. Two figures stand in the street by an Israelite home. The tenth panel, for the plague of the death of the firstborn, shows a woman kneeling, holding a candle before a dead figure lying on the ground in a room. Other corpses lie in the room. On the left, a man holding a candle stands by a figure lying on a canopy bed.
