“Then whoever feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh hurried his slaves and his livestock into the houses, but whoever did not pay attention to the word of the LORD left his slaves and his livestock in the field” (v20-21). After several plagues, many Egyptians believed Moses’ warnings about the coming hailstorm. Some magicians were convinced, and certain royal servants heeded Moses’ words. But when the hail stopped, Moses said to Pharaoh, “I know that you do not yet fear the Lord God” (v30).
“Get your livestock … into safe shelter” (v19). God never desires destruction. He warns us for our good, giving us opportunities to believe and obey.
