Go [to Pharaoh]
Exodus
10:1−13:16

Then the Eternal One said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh. For I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his courtiers, in order that I may display these My signs among them.” – Exodus 10:1

G-d sends the plagues of locusts and darkness upon Egypt and forewarns Moses about the final plague, the death of every Egyptian firstborn. Pharaoh still does not let the Israelites leave Egypt.  G-d commands Moses and Aaron regarding the Passover festival.  G-d enacts the final plague, striking down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt except those of the House of Israel. Pharaoh now allows the Israelites to leave.  Speaking to Moses and Aaron, G-d repeats the commandments about Passover.
