Note to As You Like It, 2.5.61: "first-born of Egypt"
first-born of Egypt: For the cruel story of how God killed all the first-born of Egypt in an attempt to persuade the Pharaoh to release the Israelites from captivity, see Exodus 11-12. As for Jaques' point, I don't get it, unless he thinks he's God.
