1The LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh and tell him, ‘The LORD the God of the Hebrews says: Let my people go in order to worship me.

2If you refuse to let them go, if you still keep them in subjection,

3the LORD will strike your livestock out in the country, the horses and donkeys, camels, cattle, and sheep with a devastating pestilence.

4But the LORD will make a distinction between Israel's livestock and the livestock of the Egyptians. Of all that belong to Israel not a single one will die.’”

5The LORD fixed a time and said, “Tomorrow I shall do this throughout the land.”

6The next day the LORD struck. All the livestock of Egypt died, but from Israel's livestock not one single beast died.

7Pharaoh made enquiries and was told that from Israel's livestock not an animal had died; and yet he remained obdurate and would not let the people go.

8The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of soot from a kiln, and when Moses tosses it into the air in Pharaoh's sight,

9it will turn into a fine dust over the whole of Egypt. Throughout the land it will produce festering boils on man and beast.”

10They took the soot from the kiln and when they stood before Pharaoh, Moses tossed it into the air, and it produced festering boils on man and beast.

11The magicians were no match for Moses because of the boils, which attacked them and all the Egyptians.

12But the LORD made Pharaoh obstinate; as the LORD had foretold to Moses, he would not listen to Moses and Aaron.

13The LORD then told Moses to rise early and confront Pharaoh, saying to him, “The LORD the God of the Hebrews has said: Let my people go in order to worship me.

14This time I shall strike home with all my plagues against you yourself, your courtiers, and your people, so that you may know that there is none like me in all the world.

15By now I could have stretched out my hand, and struck you and your people with pestilence, and you would have vanished from the earth.

16I have let you live only to show you my power and to spread my fame all over the world.

17Since you still obstruct my people and will not let them go,

18tomorrow at this time I shall cause a violent hailstorm to come, such as has never been in Egypt from its first beginnings until now.

19Send now and bring your herds under cover, and everything you have out in the open field. Anything which happens to be left out in the open, whether man or beast, will die when the hail falls on it.”

20Those of Pharaoh's subjects who feared the warning of the LORD hurried their slaves and livestock into shelter;

21but those who did not take it to heart left them in the open.

22The LORD said to Moses, “Stretch your hand towards the sky to bring down hail on the whole land of Egypt, on man and beast and every growing thing throughout the land.”

23As Moses stretched his staff towards the sky, the LORD sent thunder and hail, with fire flashing to the ground. The LORD rained down hail on the land of Egypt,

24hail and fiery flashes through the hail, so heavy that there had been nothing like it in all Egypt from the time that Egypt became a nation.

25Throughout Egypt the hail struck down everything in the fields, both man and beast; it beat down every growing thing and shattered every tree.

26Only in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites lived, was there no hail.

27Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron. “This time I have sinned,” he said; “the LORD is in the right; I and my people are in the wrong.

28Intercede with the LORD, for we can bear no more of this thunder and hail. I shall let you go; you need stay no longer.”

29Moses said, “As soon as I leave the city I shall spread out my hands in prayer to the LORD. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, so that you may know that the earth is the LORD's.

30But you and your subjects, I know, do not yet fear the LORD God.”

31(The flax and barley were destroyed because the barley was in the ear and the flax in bud,

32but the wheat and vetches were not destroyed because they come later.)

33Moses left Pharaoh's presence and went out of the city, where he lifted up his hands to the LORD in prayer: the thunder and hail ceased, and no more rain fell.

34When Pharaoh saw that the downpour, the hail, and the thunder had ceased, he went back to his sinful obduracy, he and his courtiers.

35Pharaoh remained obstinate; as the LORD had foretold through Moses, he would not let the people go.
