John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 78:48

He gave up their cattle also to the hail
For the hail fell upon man and beast, as well as upon herbs and trees, ( Exodus 9:22 Exodus 9:25 ) ,

and their flocks to hot thunderbolts:
which were killed by them: this is to be understood of the fire that was mingled with the hail, and ran upon the ground, and destroyed their flocks, ( Exodus 9:23 Exodus 9:24 ) . Jarchi, out of the Midrash, interprets the words of fowls which devoured the sheep killed by the hail.
