Plague of locusts
10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto
Pharaoh for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his
servants, that I might show these my signs before him
10:2 And that you may tell in the ears of your son, and of your
son's son, what things I have worked in Egypt, and my signs
which I have done among them; that you may know how that I [am]
10:3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him,
This says the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long will you refuse
to humble yourself before me? let my people go, that they may
10:4 Else, if you refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow
will I bring the locusts into your coast
10:5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot
be able to see the earth and they shall eat the residue of that
which is escaped, which remains unto you from the hail, and shall
eat every tree which grows for you out of the field
10:6 And they shall fill your houses, and the houses of all your
servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians ; which neither
your fathers, nor your fathers' fathers have seen, since the day
that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned
himself, and went out from Pharaoh.
10:7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this
man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the
LORD their God know you not yet that Egypt is destroyed ?
10:8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh and he
said unto them, Go, serve the LORD your God [but] who [are] they
that shall go ?
10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old,
with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with
our herds will we go ; for we [must hold] a feast unto the LORD.
10:10 And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I
will let you go, and your little ones look [to it]; for evil [is]
10:11 Not so go now you [that are] men, and serve the LORD ; for
that you did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's
10:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out your hand over
the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the
land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, [even ] all that
the hail has left.
10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt,
and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and
all [that] night ; [and] when it was morning, the east wind
brought the locusts.
10:14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and
rested in all the coasts of Egypt very grievous [were they];
before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after
them shall be such.
10:15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the
land was darkened ; and they did eat every herb of the land, and
all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left and there
remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the
field, through all the land of Egypt.
10:16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste ; and he
said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.
10:17 Now therefore forgive, I pray you, my sin only this once,
and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this
10:18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
10:19 And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took
away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea ; there remained
not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
10:20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not
let the children of Israel go.
Plague of Darkness
10:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out your hand toward
heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even
darkness [which] may be felt.
10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven ; and
there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place
for three days but all the children of Israel had light in their
10:24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go you, serve the
LORD ; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed let your
little ones also go with you.
10:25 And Moses said, You must give us also sacrifices and burnt
offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.
10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof
be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our
God ; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we
Pharaoh's heart still hardened
10:27 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let
10:28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get you from me, take heed to
yourself, see my face no more ; for in [that] day you see my face
you shall die.
10:29 And Moses said, You have spoken well, I will see your face
again no more.
