He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes;
And when the dew that lay round it was gone up, behold, on the face of the wilderness there was something fine, granular, fine as hoar-frost, on the ground.
Out of whose womb cometh the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who bringeth it forth?
And it shall come to pass in that day, that there shall not be light; the shining shall be obscured.

He killed their vines with hail, and their sycamore trees with hail-stones;
From the chamber of the south cometh the whirlwind; and cold from the winds of the north.
He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes; He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold? He sendeth his word, and melteth them; he causeth his wind to blow the waters flow.
