8 So the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Take for yourselves handfuls of ashes from a furnace, and let Moses scatter it toward the heavens in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 "And it will become fine dust in all the land of Egypt, and it will cause h boils that break out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt." 10 Then they took ashes from the furnace and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses scattered them toward heaven. And they caused i boils that break out in sores on man and beast. 11 And the j magicians could not stand before Moses because of the k boils, for the boils were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians. 12 But the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh; and he l did not heed them, just m as the LORD had spoken to Moses.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
