Description This page from Walters manuscripts W.106 depicts a scene from Exodus, in which God rained plagues upon Egypt. Moses (shown horned as a sign of his encounter with divinity) stretched out his hand, and there came forth hail throughout the land of Egypt. Thunder, hail, and fire rained down from heaven. Yet still the Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites leave Egypt.
