Bible: Ps 78:44-52

78:44 He turned their rivers into blood,

and they could not drink from their streams.

78:45 He sent swarms of biting insects against them, 1 

as well as frogs that overran their land. 2 

78:46 He gave their crops to the grasshopper,

the fruit of their labor to the locust.

78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail,

and their sycamore-fig trees with driving rain.

78:48 He rained hail down on their cattle, 3 

and hurled lightning bolts down on their livestock. 4 

78:49 His raging anger lashed out against them, 5 

He sent fury, rage, and trouble

as messengers who bring disaster. 6 

78:50 He sent his anger in full force; 7 

he did not spare them from death;

he handed their lives over to destruction. 8 

78:51 He struck down all the firstborn in Egypt,

the firstfruits of their reproductive power 9  in the tents of Ham.

78:52 Yet he brought out his people like sheep;

he led them through the wilderness like a flock.
