Moses went out from Pharaoh…and spread out his hands to the LORD, and the thunder stopped and the hail and the rain were not flooding earthward. And Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunder had stopped…When Moses spread his hands to the heavens, the thunder, hail and rain stopped – in that order. Pharaoh, however, perceived things in reverse, the rain and the hail and the thunder stopped. Another subtle reminder, explains R. Hayim Paltiel, that sometimes the way we see the world is the opposite of the way that God runs the world.
