Plague on Livestock
9:1 Then 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.
9:2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them
9:3 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.
9:4 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 children's of Israel.
9:5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow
the LORD shall do this thing in the land.
9:6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the
cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of
Israel died not one.
9:7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the
cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was
hardened, and he did not let the people go.
The Plague of Boils
9:8 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 heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9:9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of
Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon
man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.
9:10 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
9:11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because
of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon
all the Egyptians.
9:12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he
hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.
The Plague of Hail
9:13 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in
the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him,
Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go,
that they may serve me.
9:14 For I will at this time send all 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.
9:15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite
thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut
off from the earth.
9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up,
for to show in thee my power; and that my name may be
declared throughout all the earth.
9:17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that
thou wilt not let them go?
9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to
rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt
since the foundation thereof even until now.
9:19 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 down upon them, and they shall
9:20 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants
of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the
9:21 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his
servants and his cattle in the field.
9:22 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.
9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and
the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon
the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail,
very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the
land of Egypt since it became a nation.
9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt
all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail
smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the
9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of
Israel were, was there no hail.
9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and
said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is
righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
9:28 Entreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no
more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and
ye shall stay no longer.
9:29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of
the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and
the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more
hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD's.
9:30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will
not yet fear the LORD God.
9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the
barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.
9:32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten: for they
were not grown up.
9:33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and
spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and
hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.
9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and
the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened
his heart, he and his servants.
9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would
he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by
