Aaron's Rod Turning into a Serpent Before Pharaoh and His Magicians
“And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so, as Jehovah had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.” Exodus 7:10 ASV
Illustration of Moses and Aaron standing before Pharaoh and his advisers. Aaron holds the tale of a serpent that used to be his rod. Moses stands next to him and gestures toward the serpent. Pharaoh, wearing a crown, holding a sceptre, and sitting on a throne, stares at the snake. His arm is outstretched. One of Pharaoh’s servants gapes at the scene. Others stand behind him, befuddled. A doorway displays a pyramid and palm trees in the background.
