View In My Bible
13 Then the LORD said to Moses, "1Rise up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh and say to him, 'Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, "2Let My people go, that they may serve Me. 14 "For this time I will send all My plagues aon you and your servants and your people, so that 3you may know that there is no one like Me in all the earth. 15 "For if by now I had put forth My hand and struck you and your people with pestilence, you would then have been cut off from the earth. 16 "But, indeed, 4for this reason I have allowed you to bremain, in order to show you My power and in order to proclaim My name through all the earth. 17 "Still you exalt yourself against My people cby not letting them go.

The Plague of Hail

18 "Behold, about this time tomorrow, 5I will dsend a very heavy hail, such as has not been seen in Egypt from the day it was founded euntil now. 19 "Now therefore send, bring 6your livestock and whatever you have in the field to safety. 7Every man and beast that is found in the field and is not brought home, when the hail comes down on them, will die.""' 20 8The one among the servants of Pharaoh who ffeared the word of the LORD made his servants and his livestock flee into the houses; 21 but he who gpaid no regard to the word of the LORD hleft his servants and his livestock in the field. 22 Now the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that i9hail may fall on all the land of Egypt, on man and on beast and on every plant of the field, throughout the land of Egypt." 23 Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, and the LORD jsent kthunder and 10hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt. 24 So there was hail, and fire lflashing continually in the midst of the hail, very severe, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 25 11The hail struck all that was in the field through all the land of Egypt, both man and beast; the hail also struck every plant of the field and shattered every tree of the field. 26 12Only in the land of Goshen, where the sons of Israel were, there was no hail. 27 Then Pharaoh m13sent for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "14I have sinned this time; the LORD is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones. 28 "15Make supplication to the LORD, for there has been enough of God's nthunder and hail; and 16I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer." 29 Moses said to him, "As soon as I go out of the city, I will 17spread out my ohands to the LORD; the pthunder will cease and there will be hail no longer, that you may know that 18the earth is the LORD'S. 30 "19But as for you and your servants, I know that 20you do not yet qfear rthe LORD God." 31 (Now the flax and the 21barley were sruined, for the barley was in the ear and the flax was in bud. 32 But the wheat and the spelt were not truined, for they ripen late.) 33 22So Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread out his uhands to the LORD; and the vthunder and the hail ceased, and rain wno longer poured on the earth. 34 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the xthunder had ceased, he sinned again and yhardened his heart, he and his servants. 35 Pharaoh's heart was zhardened, and he did not let the sons of Israel go, just as the 23LORD had spoken through Moses.
