the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that
they may serve me.
2For if thou refuse to
let them go, and wilt hold them still,
the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the
oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.
4And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing
die of all that is the children's of Israel.
the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.
6And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but
of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened,
and he did not let the people go.
LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven
in the sight of Pharaoh.
9And it shall become
small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all
the land of Egypt.
10And they took ashes of
the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains
upon man, and upon beast.
11And the magicians
could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.
12And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as
the LORD had spoken unto Moses.
LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of
the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know
that there is none like me in all the earth.
now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
16And in very deed for this cause have I raised
thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
17As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?
18Behold, to morrow about this time I will
cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
19Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field;
for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon
them, and they shall die.
20He that feared
the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
21And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle
in the field.
22And the LORD said unto Moses,
Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon
every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and
the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since
it became a nation.
25And the hail smote throughout
all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake
every tree of the field.
26Only in the land
of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
27And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the
LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no
29And Moses said unto him, As soon
as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there
be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD's.
30But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.
31And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the
flax was bolled.
32But the wheat and the rie
were not smitten: for they were not grown up.
Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and
the rain was not poured upon the earth.
when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and
35And the heart of Pharaoh was
hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.
