Exodus 9

Great(i) 1 The Lorde sayd vnto Moses: go in vnto Pharao and thou shalt tell him: thus sayth the Lorde God of the Ebrues: lett my people go, that they maye serue me. 2 If thou wilt not let them go, and wylt holde them styll, 3 beholde, the hande of the Lorde is vpon thy flocke which is in the felde: for vpon hostes, asses, camels, oxen and shepe, there shalbe a mighty great morayne. 4 And the Lorde shall do wonderfully betwene the beastes of Israel and the beastes of Egypt: so that there shall nothynge dye of all that pertayneth to the children of Israel. 5 And the Lorde appointed a tyme, saying: to morow the Lorde shall finysh this worde in the lande. 6 And the Lorde dyd it on the morow, and all the catell of Egipt dyed: but of the catell of the chyldren of Israel dyed not one. 7 And Pharao sent, and beholde, ther was not one of the catell of the Israelites deed. And the hert of Pharao was hardened that he wolde not let the people go. 8 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses and Aaron: take youre handes full of asshes out of the fornace, and Moses shall sprynkle it vp into the ayre, in the syght of Pharao, 9 and it shall turne to dust in all the lande of Egipt: that ther maye be swellyng sores with blaynes both on man and beaste thorowout all the lande of Egipte. 10 And they toke asshes oute of the fornace, and stode before Pharao, and Moses sprynkled it vp into the ayre. And there were sores with blaynes both in men and in beastes: 11 and the sorcerers coulde not stande before Moses because of the blaines: for ther were botches vpon the enchaunters & vpon all the Egipcians. 12 And the Lord hardened the hert of Pharao, & he herkened not vnto them, as the Lorde had sayd vnto Moses. 13 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses: ryse vp early in the mornynge, and stande before Pharao, & thou shalt tell hym: thus sayth the Lord God of the Ebrues: Let my people go, that they maye serue me: 14 or els I will at this tyme sende all my plages vpon thine herte, and vpon thy seruauntes and on thy people, that thou mayest knowe, that there is none lyke me in all the earth. 15 For nowe I wyll stretch out my hande, that I maye smyte the and thy people with pestilence: and thou shalt perysh from the earth. 16 And in very dede for this cause haue I kepte the, for to shewe the my power: and that they might declare my name thorowout all the world. 17 Yet thou exaltest thy selfe agaynste my people, that thou wylt not let them go: 18 beholde, to morowe thys tyme I wyll sende downe a myghty great hayle: euen soche a one as was not in Egipt, sens it was grounded vnto thys tyme. 19 Sende therfore nowe, and gather thy beastes, and all that thou hast in the felde. For vpon all the men and the beastes which are founde in the felde, and not brought home, shall the hayle fall, and they shall dye. 20 And as many as feared the worde of the Lorde among the seruauntes of Pharao, made their seruauntes and their beastes flee into the houses: 21 but he that regarded not the worde of the Lorde, left his seruauntes and his beastes in the felde. 22 And the Lorde said vnto Moses: stretch forth thyne hande vnto heauen, that there maye be hayle in all the lande of Egipt: vpon man and vpon beastes and vpon all the herbes of the felde, thorowout the lande of Egipt. 23 And Moses stretched out his rod vnto heauen: and the Lord thondred and hayled, and the fyrr ran a longe vpon the grounde. And the Lorde so hayled in the lande of Egypt, 24 that there was hayle and fyer mengled with the hayle, so greuous, and such as there was none thorowout all the lande of Egipte, sence people inhabited it. 25 And the hayle smote thorowout all the lande of Egipt, all that was in the felde both man and beast. And the hayle smote all the herbes of the felde, and broke all the trees of the felde: 26 onely in the lande of Gozan, where the children of Israel were, was there no hayle. 27 And Pharao sent & called for Moses and Aaron, and sayde vnto them: I haue nowe synned: the Lorde is ryghteous: and I and my people are vngodly. 28 Praye ye vnto the Lorde: for it is moch that there shulde be thonders of God & hayle. I will let you go, and ye shall tary no longer. 29 Moses sayde vnto him: assone as I am out of the citye, I will sprede abrode my handes vnto the Lorde, & the thonder shall cease. nether shall there be eny more hayle, that thou mayst knowe howe that the erth is the Lordes. 30 But I knowe that thou and thy seruauntes yet feare not the face of the Lorde God. 31 And so the flaxe and the barly were smyten: for the barly was shot vp, and the flaxe was boulled: 32 but the whete and the rye were not smytten: for they were late sowne. 33 And Moses went out of the citye from Pharao and sprede abrode his handes vnto the Lorde: and the thonder and hayle ceased nether rayned it vpon the earth. 34 And when Pharao sawe that the rayne and the hayle and thonder were ceased, he synned agayne: and hardened his herte, he and his seruauntes. 35 And the hert of Pharao was hardened: nether wolde he let the children of Israel go, as the Lorde had sayde by the hande of Moses.
