The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
8 God said to Moses and Aaron, "Take fistfuls of soot from a furnace and have Moses throw it into the air right before Pharaoh's eyes; 8 Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Take handfuls of soot from a furnace and have Moses toss it into the air in the presence of Pharaoh.
9 it will become a film of fine dust all over Egypt and cause sores, an eruption of boils on people and animals throughout Egypt." 9 It will become fine dust over the whole land of Egypt, and festering boils will break out on men and animals throughout the land."
10 So they took soot from a furnace, stood in front of Pharaoh, and threw it up into the air. It caused boils to erupt on people and animals. 10 So they took soot from a furnace and stood before Pharaoh. Moses tossed it into the air, and festering boils broke out on men and animals.
11 The magicians weren't able to compete with Moses this time because of the boils - they were covered with boils just like everyone else in Egypt. 11 The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils that were on them and on all the Egyptians.
12 God hardened Pharaoh in his stubbornness. He wouldn't listen, just as God had said to Moses. Strike Seven: Hail 12 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said to Moses.
