And the LORDsaid unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and standbeforePharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORDGod of the Hebrews, Let my peoplego , that they may serve me.
For I will at this timesend 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.15
For 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.16
And in verydeed 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.17
As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go ?
Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a verygrievoushail, such as hath not been in Egyptsince 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 broughthome, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die .
He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattleflee into the houses:21
And he that regardeda not the word of the LORDleft his servants and his cattle in the field.22
And the LORDsaid 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.23
And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORDsentthunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORDrainedhail upon the land of Egypt.24
So there was hail, and firemingled with the hail,verygrievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.25
And the hailsmote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hailsmote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.26
Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.27
And Pharaohsent , 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.28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mightybthunderings and hail; and I will let you go , and ye shall stay no longer .
And Mosessaid 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.30
But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORDGod.31
And the flax and the barley was smitten : for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.32
But the wheat and the rie were not smitten : for they were not grown up.33
And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hailceased , and the rain was not poured upon the earth.34
And when Pharaohsaw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased , he sinned yet more , and hardened his heart, he and his servants.35
And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened , neither would he let the children of Israelgo ; as the LORD had spokenbyMoses.c
