Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And the Lord said unto Moses, Come in unto Pharaoh, for I have softened his heart and the heart of his servants, so that these My signs may appear among them,
2 and that you tell your son and the son of your son about what I did in Egypt, and about My signs that I showed in it, and that you know that I am the Lord.
3 Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh and said to him: Thus says the Lord, the God of the Jews: How long will you not humble yourself before Me? let my people go, that he may serve me;
4 and if you do not let My people go, then tomorrow I will bring locusts to your area:
5 she will cover the face of the earth in such a way that it will be impossible to see the earth, and you will eat the rest that has survived from the city; also eat all the trees growing in your field,
6 and it will fill your houses, the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all Egyptians, which your fathers have not seen, nor the fathers of your fathers from the day they live on the earth, even to this day. [Moses] turned and went out of Pharaoh.
7 Then the Pharaoh slaves said to him: How long will he torment us? let these people go, may they serve the Lord their God; Can't you see that Egypt is dying?
eight And they returned Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh, and [Pharaoh] said to them: Go, do service to the Lord your God; who and who will go?
nine And Moses said: we will go with our young and our old men, with our sons and our daughters, and with our sheep and with our oxen we will go, for we have a holiday to the Lord.
ten [Pharaoh] said to them: So be it, the Lord is with you! I am ready to let you go: but why with the children? You see, you have a bad intention!
eleven no: go [alone] men and render service to the Lord, as you have requested this. And they drove them from Pharaoh.

12 Then the Lord said to Moses: stretch out your hand on the land of Egypt, and let the locust attack the land of Egypt and eat all the grass of the earth [and] everything that has survived from the city.
thirteen And Moses stretched out his rod to the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind to this land, which [continued] all that day and all night. The morning came, and the east wind caused locusts.
fourteen And the locusts attacked all the land of Egypt and lay down in all the land of Egypt in great numbers: before there was no such locust, and after that it would not be so;
fifteen she covered the face of the whole earth, so that the earth was not visible, and ate all the grass of the earth and all the fruits of the tree that survived the hail, and there was no greenery either on the trees or on the field grass in all the land of Egypt.
sixteen Pharaoh hastily called Moses and Aaron and said: I have sinned before the Lord your God and before you;
17 now forgive my sin again and pray to the Lord your God that He will only turn away this death from me.
18 [Moses] went out from Pharaoh and prayed to the Lord.
19 And the Lord raised an extremely strong western wind from the opposite side, and he carried the locusts and threw them into the Red Sea: not a single locust remained in the whole country of Egypt.
twenty But the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not release the sons of Israel.

21 And the Lord said unto Moses, stretch thy hand unto heaven, and there will be darkness in the land of Egypt, tangible darkness.
22 Moses extended his hand to heaven, and there was a thick darkness throughout the land of Egypt for three days;
23 they did not see each other, and no one got up from their place for three days; All the sons of Israel had light in their dwellings.
24 Pharaoh called Moses and said: go, do the service of the Lord, if only your cattle and herds remain, and let your children go with you.
25 But Moses said: also give into our hands sacrifices and burnt offerings, so that they may bring unto the Lord our God;
26 let our herds go with us, not a hoof will remain; for of them we shall sacrifice to the Lord our God; but until we get there, we don’t know what to sacrifice to the Lord.
27 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not want to let them go.
28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Go away from me; beware, do not appear before my face; that day when you see my face, you will die.
29th And Moses said: as you said, so it will be; I will not see your face again.
