5 ‘They shall cover the surface of the land, so that no one will be able to see the land. aThey will also eat the rest of what has escaped—what is left to you from the hail—and they will eat every tree which sprouts for you out of the field.
6 ‘Then ayour houses shall be filled and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians, something which neither your fathers nor your grandfathers have seen, from the day that they 1came upon the earth until this day.’ ” And he turned and went out from Pharaoh.
12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “aStretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up on the land of Egypt and beat every plant of the land, even all that the hail has left.”
13 So Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and the Lord directed an east wind on the land all that day and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind 1brought the alocusts.
15 For they covered the surface of the whole land, so that the land was darkened; and they aate every plant of the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Thus nothing green was left on tree or plant of the field through all the land of Egypt.
17 “Now therefore, please forgive my sin only this once, and amake supplication to the Lord your God, that He would only remove this death from me.”
18 aHe went out from Pharaoh and made supplication to the Lord.
19 So the Lord shifted the wind to a very strong west wind which took up the locusts and drove them into the 1Red Sea; not one locust was left in all the territory of Egypt.
22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and there was athick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.
23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, abut all the sons of Israel had light in their dwellings.
26 “aTherefore, our livestock too shall go with us; not a hoof shall be left behind, for we shall take some of them to serve the Lord our God. And until we arrive there, we ourselves do not know with what we shall serve the Lord.”
29 Moses said, “You are right; aI shall never see your face again!”
