... hail ...

Exodus 9
13And 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.
14For 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.
15For 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.
16And 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.
17As yet exaltest thou thyself against My people, that thou wilt not let them go?
18Behold, 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.
19Send 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.
20He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh
made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
21And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.
22And 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.
23And 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.
24So 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.
25And 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.
26Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were,
was there no hail.
27And 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.
28Intreat 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.
29And 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.
30But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.
31And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.32But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.
33And 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.
34And 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.
35And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened,
neither would he let the children of Israel go;
as the LORD had spoken by Moses.
