Staff of Moses in Lore

The Staff of Moses was used by Moses when leading the Israelites out of Egypt. In order to convince the Pharaoh to release the Israelites, God inflicted ten plagues on the Egyptians. Moses uses the staff to part the Red Sea, produce water from a rock, and invoke plague. The staff could also transform itself into a snake.
