NASB — Exodus 9 — KJV

Egyptian Cattle Die

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and speak to him, ‘Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, “aLet My people go, that they may serve Me. 2 For aif you refuse to let [them] go and Icontinue to hold them, 3 behold, athe hand of the LORD Iwill come [with] a very severe pestilence on your livestock which are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the herds, and on the flocks. 4 aBut the LORD will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, so that bnothing will die of all that belongs to the sons of Israel.”’” 5 The LORD set a definite time, saying, “Tomorrow the LORD will do this thing in the land.” 6 So the LORD did this thing on the next day, and aall the livestock of Egypt died; bbut of the livestock of the sons of Israel, not one died. 7 Pharaoh sent, and behold, there was not even one of the livestock of Israel dead. But athe heart of Pharaoh was Ihardened, and he did not let the people go.

The Plague of Boils

8 ¶ Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Take for yourselves handfuls of soot from a kiln, and let Moses throw it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 It will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and will become aboils breaking out with sores on man and beast through all the land of Egypt.” 10 So they took soot from a kiln, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses threw it toward the sky, and it became boils breaking out with sores on man and beast. 11 aThe Imagicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians IIas well as on all the Egyptians. 12 And athe LORD Ihardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had spoken to Moses.

The Plague of Hail

18 Behold, about this time tomorrow, aI will Isend a very heavy hail, such as has not been [seen] in Egypt from the day it was founded IIuntil now. 19 Now therefore send, bring ayour livestock and whatever you have in the field to safety. bEvery man and beast that is found in the field and is not brought home, when the hail comes down on them, will die.”’” 20 aThe one among the servants of Pharaoh who Ifeared the word of the LORD made his servants and his livestock flee into the houses; 21 but he who Ipaid no regard to the word of the LORD IIleft his servants and his livestock in the field.

And the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt. 24 So there was hail, and fire Iflashing continually in the midst of the hail, very severe, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 25 aThe hail struck all that was in the field through all the land of Egypt, both man and beast; the hail also struck every plant of the field and shattered every tree of the field. 26 aOnly in the land of Goshen, where the sons of Israel [were], there was no hail.

27 ¶ Then Pharaoh Iasent for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “bI have sinned this time; the LORD is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones. 28 aMake supplication to the LORD, for there has been enough of God’s Ithunder and hail; and bI will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.” 29 Moses said to him, “As soon as I go out of the city, I will aspread out my Ihands to the LORD; the IIthunder will cease and there will be hail no longer, that you may know that bthe earth is the LORDS. 30 aBut as for you and your servants, I know that byou do not yet Ifear IIthe LORD God.” 31 (Now the flax and the abarley were Iruined, for the barley was in the ear and the flax was in bud. 32 But the wheat and the spelt were not Iruined, for they [ripen] late.) 33 aSo Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread out his Ihands to the LORD; and the IIthunder and the hail ceased, and rain IIIno longer poured on the earth. 34 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the Ithunder had ceased, he sinned again and IIhardened his heart, he and his servants. 35 Pharaoh’s heart was Ihardened, and he did not let the sons of Israel go, just as the aLORD had spoken through Moses.

The murrain of beasts.

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. 2 For if thou refuse to let [them] go, and wilt hold them still, 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. 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. 5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land. 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. 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 and blains.

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 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. 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 beast. 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. 12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

The message about the hail.

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. 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. 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. 16 And in very deed for this [cause] have I raised thee up, for to shew [in] thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. 17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go? 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. 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 die. 20 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: 21 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.

The plague of hail.

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. 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. 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. 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 field. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel [were], was there no hail.

Pharaoh sueth to Moses,

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. 28 Intreat 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. 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. 30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God. 31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley [was] in the ear, and the flax [was] bolled. 32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they [were] 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 more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.
