Take handfuls of ashes and sprinkle them toward heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9 This will cause boils and blains to break out on people and animals throughout Egypt.
10 So Moses and Aaron took ashes and sprinkled them toward heaven. And boils broke out on all the people and animals in Egypt. 11 The boils and blains were so bad that Pharoah's magicians couldn't stand before Moses.
Tomorrow about this time I'll cause it to hail like it's never before hailed in Egypt.
Any animals or people that are in the field will be killed.
23 So Moses stretched out his rod and God sent thunder, hail, and fire on Egypt. 25 And the hail killed every person, animal, and tree that remained outside. 26 (Except in the land of Goshen where the Israelites lived.)
27 After God's hailstorm, the Pharaoh called Moses and said to him,
I have sinned, God is righteous, and my people are wicked.
28 Ask God to stop the thunder and hail, and I'll let you go.
33 So Moses spread his hands to God, and the thunder, hail, and rain stopped.
34 But the Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go.
I have hardened the Pharaoh's heart so I can show him all my signs and wonders, and so you can tell your sons and grandsons about all the things I did in Egypt. That way you'll know that I am God.
3 Moses and Aaron went to the Pharaoh and said to him,
This is what God says,
4-6 If you refuse to let my people go, I'll bring locusts to cover the ground, fill all the houses, and eat every plant in Egypt. There will be more locusts than anyone has ever seen before and they'll destroy whatever has survived my previous plagues.
10-11 The Pharaoh said, "Okay. Go with God. Take your children with you."
Go and serve God. Keep your flocks and herds here in Egypt but take your children with you.
27 But then God hardened the Pharaoh's heart (again) so he wouldn't let the people go.
A few more words about this episode
Tell your sons and grandsons about all the things I did in Egypt. (10:2)
God wants to be remembered forever for turning water to blood; covering the land with darkness, frogs, lice, flies, and locusts; killing animals with plagues and hail; creating boils on man and beast; and for the mass murder of little children.
