HEN 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. 2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still, * 3 Behold, 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. 4 And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the chil dren's of Israel. 5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To-morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land. 6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and a all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one. 7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold there was not one of the cattle o the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go. 8 *| And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the hea: ven in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boilbbreaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. 10 And 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. 11 And the magicians could note stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. 12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkenedd not unto them; as the LORD The plagite of htt). had spoken e unto Moses. 13's And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, thus saith the foot, God of the Hebrews, Let my people §. that they may serve me. 14 For I will at this time send allf 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 §, Smite thee and g thy people wit thoushalt be cut off from the earth. 16And in very deed for h this cause have I 1 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 thyselfi against my people, that thou wilt not let them go? 18 Benold, to-morrowk about this time, I will cause it to rain l a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now. 19 Send 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 m down upon them, and they shall die. 20 He that feared the word n of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: 21 And he that 2 regarded o not the word of the LORD left his serwants and his cattle in the field. 22*. And 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. 23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven; and the LoRD sent thunder and p hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground: and the LORD rained hail upon the land
