Shemot 7:19 states:
The Lord said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Take your staff and stretch forth your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their bodies of water, and they will become blood, and there will be blood throughout the entire land of Egypt, even in wood and in stone.' "
Yet, when bringing on the plague we see that not only did Aharon strech forth his hand, he also struck the water: Shemot 7:20:
Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord had commanded, and he raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile before the eyes of Pharaoh and before the eyes of his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile turned to blood.
On the other hand, the verse sates that "Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord had commanded" - so does this mean that really Hashem commanded Aharon to strike the water,( even though it wasn't clearly mentioned in the command in the previous verse)?
