23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven; and the LORD sent thunder and p hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground: and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

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.

And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinued this time: the LORD is righteous, s and I and my people are wicked.

28 Entreat the LORD (for t it is enough) that there be no more 3 mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands u 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, v 30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet w fear the LORD God.

31 And the flax and the barley was smitten; r for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.

32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten; for they were 4 not grown up.

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. 34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet y more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken 5 by Moses. CHAPTER X.

19 And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and 4 cast them p into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt. 20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

21 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness q over the land of Egypt, 5 even darkness which may be felt.

22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had r light in their dwellings. 24 T And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.

25 And Moses said, Thou must give 6 us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.

26 Our cattle s also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither. 27 T But the LORD hardened / Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.

28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more: u for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.

36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required: and they spoiled the Egyptians.

37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses y to Succoth, about z six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

38 And 10 a mixed multitude a went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.

40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was b four hundred and thirty years.

41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the self-same day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
