Below are excerpt taken from a ancient Egyptian text called the Ipuwer Papyrus.  The text was discovered in the Papyrus Leiden 334, having been copied by 19th Dynasty scribes (c.1200 BCE; 6th century BC)  The Ipuwer Papyrus is very interesting.  It describes a Disaster in Egypt that is similar almost word for word with the Exodus story..
