|And that you may recount in the hearing of your sons and of your sons’ sons how I made a mockery of the Egyptians and how I displayed My signs among them—in order that you may know that I am Hashem.Exodus 10:2 (The Israel Bible™)
וּלְמַעַן תְּסַפֵּר בְּאָזְנֵי בִנְךָ וּבֶן־בִּנְךָ אֵת אֲשֶׁר הִתְעַלַּלְתִּי בְּמִצְרַיִם וְאֶת־אֹתֹתַיאֲשֶׁר־שַׂמְתִּי בָם וִידַעְתֶּם כִּי־אֲנִי יְהוָה

The Journey to the Promised Land
Hashem (God) says the plagues that He sent to Egypt were intended to cause the Children of Israel to recognize Him. After generations of enslavement in Egypt, the Jewish people were influenced by their idolatrous surroundings. The plagues served a reminder of Hashem‘s absolute control over everything: water, earth, the animal kingdom and human life. This lesson was especially important as the Children of Israel were about to follow God into the wilderness on their journey to the Promised Land. Today, Jews around the world continue to remember the exodus story and they are inspired by the words of the Torah(Bible) to journey to Israel and to settle in the Promised Land.
