1 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Go to Pharaoh and say to him, "Yahweh, God of the Hebrews, says this: Let my people go and worship me.
Exod 8:1 Exod 8:20 Exod 9:13 Exod 3:18 Exod 4:22-23 Exod 5:1 Exod 10:3
2 If you refuse to let them go and detain them any longer,
Exod 8:2 Exod 4:23 Exod 10:4 Isa 1:20 Lev 26:14-16 Lev 26:23-24 Lev 26:27-28
3 look, the hand of Yahweh will strike your livestock in the fields, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and flocks with a deadly plague.
Exod 7:4 Acts 13:11 1Sam 5:6-11 1Sam 6:9 Exod 5:3 Exod 8:19
4 Yahweh will discriminate between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt: nothing of what belongs to the Israelites will die.
Exod 8:22 Exod 10:23 Exod 12:13 Isa 65:13-14 Mal 3:18
5 Yahweh has fixed the time. Tomorrow, he has said, Yahweh will do this in the country." '
Eccl 3:1-11 Exod 8:23 Exod 9:18 Exod 10:4 Jer 28:16-17 Matt 27:63-64 Num 16:5
6 Next day Yahweh did this: all the Egyptians' livestock died, but nothing of the livestock owned by the Israelites died.
Ps 78:48 Exod 9:25 Ps 78:50 Exod 9:19-20
7 Pharaoh had enquiries made, and found that of the livestock owned by the Israelites not a single beast had died. But Pharaoh was obstinate and did not let the people go.
Exod 7:14 Exod 8:32 Dan 5:20 Exod 9:12 Isa 48:4 Job 9:4 Rom 9:18
8 Yahweh then said to Moses and Aaron, 'Take handfuls of soot from the kiln, and before Pharaoh's eyes let Moses throw it in the air.
9 It will turn into fine dust over the whole of Egypt and produce boils breaking into sores on man and beast throughout the whole of Egypt.'
Deut 28:27 Rev 16:2 Deut 28:35 Job 2:7 Lev 13:18-20
10 So they took soot from the kiln and stood in front of Pharaoh, and Moses threw it in the air, and on man and beast it brought out boils breaking into sores.
11 And the magicians could not compete with Moses in the matter of the boils, for the magicians were covered with boils like all the other Egyptians.
2Tim 3:8-9 Exod 7:11-12 Exod 8:18-19 Isa 47:12-14 Rev 16:2
12 But Yahweh made Pharaoh stubborn and, as Yahweh had foretold to Moses, he did not listen to them.
Exod 4:21 Exod 7:13-14 Ps 81:11-12 Rev 16:10-11
13 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Get up early in the morning and confront Pharaoh. Say to him, "Yahweh, God of the Hebrews, says this: Let my people go and worship me.
Exod 8:20 Exod 7:15 Exod 9:1
14 For this time I am going to inflict all my plagues on you, on your officials and on your subjects, so that you will know that there is no one like me in the whole world.
Exod 8:10 1Chr 17:20 1Kgs 8:38 1Sam 4:8 2Sam 7:22 Deut 28:15-17 Deut 28:59-61
15 Had I stretched out my hand to strike you and your subjects with pestilence, you would have been swept from the earth.
Exod 3:20 1Kgs 13:34 Exod 9:3 Exod 9:6 Exod 9:16 Exod 11:4-6 Exod 12:29-30
16 But I have let you survive for this reason: to display my power to you and to have my name talked of throughout the world.
Rom 9:17 Prov 16:4 Ps 83:17-18 1Pet 2:8 Exod 14:17 1Chr 16:24 1Pet 2:19
17 Since you take a high hand with my people, refusing to let them go,
1Cor 10:22 Acts 12:23 Isa 10:15 Isa 26:11 Isa 37:23-24 Isa 37:29 Isa 45:9
18 very well, at about this time tomorrow, I shall cause so severe a hail to fall as was never known in Egypt from the day of its foundation until now.
1Kgs 19:2 1Kgs 20:6 2Kgs 7:1 2Kgs 7:18 Exod 9:22-25 Ps 83:15
19 So now send word to have your livestock and everything else you own in the fields put under cover. On man or beast, all that happen to be in the fields and are not brought indoors, the hail will fall and they will die." '
20 Those of Pharaoh's officials who respected what Yahweh said, brought their slaves and livestock indoors,
Heb 11:7 Jonah 3:5-6 Mark 13:14-16 Prov 13:13 Prov 16:16 Prov 22:3 Prov 22:23
21 but those who did not take to heart what Yahweh said left their slaves and livestock in the fields.
1Chr 22:19 1Sam 4:20 Dan 10:12 Exod 7:23 Ezek 40:4 Job 7:17 Job 34:14
22 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Stretch out your hand towards heaven so that it hails throughout the whole of Egypt, on man and beast and on everything growing anywhere in Egypt.'
Rev 16:21 Exod 7:19 Exod 8:5 Exod 8:16
23 Moses stretched out his staff towards heaven, and Yahweh thundered and rained down hail. Lightning struck the earth and Yahweh rained down hail on Egypt.
Ezek 38:22 Isa 30:30 Josh 10:11 Ps 18:13 Rev 8:7 Ps 78:47-48 Ps 148:8
24 And so there was hail, and lightning accompanied the hail, very severe, such as had never been known anywhere in Egypt since it first became a nation.
Exod 9:23 Exod 10:6 Matt 24:21
25 All over Egypt the hail struck down everything in the fields, man and beast, and the hail beat down everything growing in the fields and shattered all the trees in the fields.
Ps 78:47 Ps 105:32-33
26 The only place where there was no hail was in the Goshen region, where the Israelites lived.
Exod 9:4 Exod 11:7 Exod 9:6 Exod 10:23 Exod 12:13 Exod 8:22-32 Isa 32:18-19
27 Pharaoh then sent for Moses and Aaron and said, 'This time, I have sinned. Yahweh is in the right; I and my subjects are in the wrong.
2Chr 12:6 Exod 10:16 Lam 1:18 Ps 129:4 Ps 145:17 Dan 9:14 1Sam 15:24
28 Pray to Yahweh, for we cannot bear any more of this thunder and hail. I promise to let you go. You need stay no longer.'
Exod 8:8 Exod 10:17 Exod 8:28 Acts 8:24 Exod 11:1 Ps 29:3-4
29 Moses said to him, 'The moment I leave the city I shall stretch out my hands to Yahweh. The thunder will stop, and there will be no more hail, so that you may know that the earth belongs to Yahweh.
1Cor 10:26 1Kgs 8:22 1Kgs 8:38 Isa 1:15 Ps 143:6 Deut 10:14 1Cor 10:28
30 But as for you and your officials, I know very well that you still have no respect for Yahweh God.'
Isa 26:10 Isa 63:17 Prov 16:6
31 The flax and the barley were ruined, since the barley was in the ear and the flax in bud,
Ruth 1:22 Ruth 2:23 Amos 4:9 Hab 3:17
32 but the wheat and spelt were not destroyed, being late crops.
33 Moses left Pharaoh and went out of the city. He stretched out his hands to Yahweh and the thunder and hail ceased and the rain stopped pouring down on the earth.
Exod 9:29 Exod 8:12 Exod 10:18-19 Jas 5:17-18
34 When Pharaoh saw that rain and hail and thunder had stopped, he relapsed into sin,
Exod 7:14 2Chr 28:22 2Chr 33:23 2Chr 36:13 Eccl 8:11 Exod 4:21 Exod 8:15
35 and he and his officials became obstinate again. Pharaoh was stubborn and, as Yahweh had foretold through Moses, refused to let the Israelites go.
