|I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail,|
yet you did not turn to me,' declares the LORD.
|The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed|
with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth.
|lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,|
Psalm 7840How often they rebelled against him in the desert
and grieved him in the wasteland!
41Again and again they put God to the test;
they vexed the Holy One of Israel.
42They did not remember his power—
the day he redeemed them from the oppressor,
43the day he displayed his miraculous signs in Egypt,
his wonders in the region of Zoan.
44He turned their rivers to blood;
they could not drink from their streams.
45He sent swarms of flies that devoured them,
and frogs that devastated them.
46He gave their crops to the grasshopper,
their produce to the locust.
47He destroyed their vines with hail
and their sycamore-figs with sleet.
48He gave over their cattle to the hail,
their livestock to bolts of lightning.
Grace and peace
