10:4 But if you refuse to release my people, I am going to bring 1 locusts 2 into your territory 3 tomorrow. 10:5 They will cover 4 the surface 5 of the earth, so that you 6 will be unable to see the ground. They will eat the remainder of what escaped 7 – what is left over 8 for you – from the hail, and they will eat every tree that grows for you from the field. 10:6 They will fill your houses, the houses of your servants, and all the houses of Egypt, such as 9 neither 10 your fathers nor your grandfathers have seen since they have been 11 in the land until this day!’” Then Moses 12 turned and went out from Pharaoh.
10:7 Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “How long 13 will this man be a menace 14 to us? Release the people so that they may serve the Lord their God. Do you not know 15 that Egypt is destroyed?”
10:8 So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, “Go, serve the Lord your God. Exactly who is going with you?” 16 10:9 Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, and with our sheep and our cattle we will go, because we are to hold 17 a pilgrim feast for the Lord.”
10:10 He said to them, “The Lord will need to be with you 18 if I release you and your dependents! 19 Watch out! 20 Trouble is right in front of you! 21 10:11 No! 22 Go, you men 23 only, and serve the Lord, for that 24 is what you want.” 25 Then Moses and Aaron 26 were driven 27 out of Pharaoh’s presence.
10:12 The Lord said to Moses, “Extend your hand over the land of Egypt for 28 the locusts, that they may come up over the land of Egypt and eat everything that grows 29 in the ground, everything that the hail has left.” 10:13 So Moses extended his staff over the land of Egypt, and then the Lord 30 brought 31 an east wind on the land all that day and all night. 32 The morning came, 33 and the east wind had brought up 34 the locusts! 10:14 The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt and settled down in all the territory 35 of Egypt. It was very severe; 36 there had been no locusts like them before, nor will there be such ever again. 37 10:15 They covered 38 the surface 39 of all the ground, so that the ground became dark with them, 40 and they ate all the vegetation of the ground and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Nothing green remained on the trees or on anything that grew in the fields throughout the whole land of Egypt.
