Bible: Exodus 9:18-26

9:18 I am going to cause very severe hail to rain down 1  about this time tomorrow, such hail as has never occurred 2  in Egypt from the day it was founded 3  until now. 9:19 So now, send instructions 4  to gather 5  your livestock and all your possessions in the fields to a safe place. Every person 6  or animal caught 7  in the field and not brought into the house – the hail will come down on them, and they will die!”’

9:20 Those 8  of Pharaoh’s servants who feared the word of the Lord hurried to bring their 9  servants and livestock into the houses, 9:21 but those 10  who did not take 11  the word of the Lord seriously left their servants and their cattle 12  in the field.

9:22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Extend your hand toward the sky 13  that there may be 14  hail in all the land of Egypt, on people and on animals, 15  and on everything that grows 16  in the field in the land of Egypt.” 9:23 When Moses extended 17  his staff toward the sky, the Lord 18  sent thunder 19  and hail, and fire fell to the earth; 20  so the Lord caused hail to rain down on the land of Egypt. 9:24 Hail fell 21  and fire mingled 22  with the hail; the hail was so severe 23  that there had not been any like it 24  in all the land of Egypt since it had become a nation. 9:25 The hail struck everything in the open fields, both 25  people and animals, throughout all the land of Egypt. The hail struck everything that grows 26  in the field, and it broke all the trees of the field to pieces. 9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites lived, was there no hail.
