1 Et dixit Dominus ad Moy sen: "Ingredere ad pharao nem: ego enim induravi cor eius et servorum illius, ut faciam signa mea haec in medio eorum,
2 et narres in auribus filii tui et nepotum tuorum, quotiens contriverim Aegyptios et signa mea fecerim in eis; et sciatis quia ego Dominus"
3 Introierunt ergo Moyses et Aaron ad pharaonem et dixerunt ei: "Haec dicit Dominus, Deus Hebraeorum: Usquequo non vis subici mihi? Dimitte populum meum, ut sacrificet mihi.
4 Sin autem resistis et non vis dimittere eum, ecce ego inducam cras locustam in fines tuos,
5 quae operiat superficiem terrae, ne quidquam eius appareat, sed comedatur, quod residuum fuerit grandini; corrodet enim omnia ligna, quae germinant in agris.
6 Et implebunt domos tuas et servorum tuorum et omnium Aegyptiorum, quantam non viderunt patres tui et avi, ex quo orti sunt super terram usque in praesentem diem" Avertitque se et egressus est a pharaone.
7 Dixerunt autem servi pharaonis ad eum: "Usquequo patiemur hoc scandalum? Dimitte homines, ut sacrificent Domino Deo suo; nonne vides quod perierit Aegyptus?"
8 Revocaveruntque Moysen et Aaron ad pharaonem, qui dixit eis: "Ite, sacrificate Domino Deo vestro. Quinam sunt qui ituri sunt?"
9 Ait Moyses: "Cum parvulis nostris et senioribus pergemus, cum filiis et filiabus, cum ovibus et armentis; est enim sollemnitas Domini nobis"
10 Et respondit eis: "Sic Dominus sit vobiscum, quomodo ego dimittam vos et parvulos vestros. Cui dubium est quod pessime cogitetis?
11 Non fiet ita, sed ite tantum viri et sacrificate Domino; hoc enim et ipsi petistis" Statimque eiecti sunt de conspectu pharaonis.
12 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: "Extende manum tuam super terram Aegypti, ut veniat locusta et ascendat super eam et devoret omnem herbam, quidquid residuum fuerit grandini"
13 Et extendit Moyses virgam super terram Aegypti, et Dominus induxit ventum urentem tota die illa et nocte. Et mane facto, ventus urens levavit locustas;
14 quae ascenderunt super universam terram Aegypti et sederunt in cunctis finibus Aegyptiorum innumerabiles, quales ante illud tempus non fuerant nec postea futurae sunt.
15 Operueruntque universam superficiem terrae, et obscurata est terra. Devoraverunt igitur omnem herbam terrae et, quidquid pomorum in arboribus fuit, quae grando dimiserat; nihilque omnino virens relictum est in lignis et in herbis terrae in cuncta Aegypto.
16 Quam ob rem festinus pharao vocavit Moysen et Aaron et dixit eis: "Peccavi in Dominum Deum vestrum et in vos.
17 Sed nunc dimittite peccatum mihi tantum hac vice et rogate Dominum Deum vestrum, ut auferat a me saltem mortem istam"
18 Egressusque Moyses de conspectu pharaonis oravit Dominum,
19 qui flare fecit ventum ab occidente vehementissimum et arreptam locustam proiecit in mare Rubrum; non remansit ne una quidem in cunctis finibus Aegypti.
20 Et induravit Dominus cor pharaonis, nec dimisit filios Israel.
21 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: "Extende manum tuam in caelum, et sint tenebrae super terram Aegypti tam densae ut palpari queant"
22 Extenditque Moyses manum in caelum, et factae sunt tenebrae horribiles in universa terra Aegypti tribus diebus.
23 Nemo vidit fratrem suum nec movit se de loco, in quo erat. Ubicumque autem habitabant filii Israel, lux erat.
24 Vocavitque pharao Moysen et Aaron et dixit eis: "Ite, sacrificate Domino; oves tantum vestrae et armenta remaneant, parvuli vestri eant vobiscum"
25 Ait Moyses: "Etiamsi tu hostias et holocausta dares nobis, quae offeramus Domino Deo nostro,
26 tamen et greges nostri pergent nobiscum; non remanebit ex eis ungula, quoniam ex ipsis sumemus, quae necessaria sunt in cultum Domini Dei nostri; praesertim cum ignoremus quid debeat immolari, donec ad ipsum locum perveniamus"
27 Induravit autem Dominus cor pharaonis, et noluit dimittere eos.
28 Dixitque pharao ad eum: "Recede a me. Cave, ne ultra videas faciem meam; quocumque die apparueris mihi, morieris"
29 Respondit Moyses: "Ita fiet, ut locutus es; non videbo ultra faciem tuam"
King James Version
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 shew these my signs before him:
2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.
3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.
4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:
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 remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:
6 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy 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.
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: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?
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?
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 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 before you.
11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.
12 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine 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 hath left.
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.
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.
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.
16 ¶ Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.
17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this death only.
18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
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.
20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
21 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
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 dwellings.
24 ¶ And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.
25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.
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 come thither.
27 ¶ But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.
28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.
29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.
