Exodus 10


1  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Go in935 unto413 Pharaoh:6547 for3588 I589 have hardened3513 853 his heart,3820 and the heart3820 of his servants,5650 that4616 I might show7896 these428 my signs226 before7130 him:

2  And that4616 thou mayest tell5608 in the ears241 of thy son,1121 and of thy son's1121 son,1121 853 what things834 I have wrought5953 in Egypt,4714 and my signs226 which834 I have done7760 among them; that ye may know3045 how that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

3  And Moses4872 and Aaron175 came in935 unto413 Pharaoh,6547 and said559 unto413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of the Hebrews,5680 How long5704 4970 wilt thou refuse3985 to humble thyself6031 before4480 6440 me? let my people5971 go,7971 that they may serve5647 me.

4  Else,3588 if518 thou859 refuse3986 to let 853 my people5971 go,7971 behold,2009 tomorrow4279 will I bring935 the locusts697 into thy coast:1366

5  And they shall cover3680 853 the face5869 of the earth,776 that one cannot3808 be able3201 to see7200 853 the earth:776 and they shall eat398 853 the residue3499 of that which is escaped,6413 which remaineth7604 unto you from4480 the hail,1259 and shall eat398 853 every3605 tree6086 which groweth6779 for you out of4480 the field:7704

6  And they shall fill4390 thy houses,1004 and the houses1004 of all3605 thy servants,5650 and the houses1004 of all3605 the Egyptians;4714 which834 neither3808 thy fathers,1 nor thy fathers'1 fathers1 have seen,7200 since the day4480 3117 that they were1961 upon5921 the earth127 unto5704 this2088 day.3117 And he turned6437 himself, and went out3318 from4480 5973 Pharaoh.6547

7  And Pharaoh's6547 servants5650 said559 unto413 him, How long5704 4970 shall this man2088 be1961 a snare4170 unto us? let 853 the men376 go,7971 that they may serve5647 853 the LORD3068 their God:430 knowest3045 thou not yet2962 that3588 Egypt4714 is destroyed?6

8  And 853 Moses4872 and Aaron175 were brought again7725 unto413 Pharaoh:6547 and he said559 unto413 them, Go,1980 serve5647 853 the LORD3068 your God:430 but who4310 4310 are they that shall go?1980

9  And Moses4872 said,559 We will go1980 with our young5288 and with our old,2205 with our sons1121 and with our daughters,1323 with our flocks6629 and with our herds1241 will we go;1980 for3588 we must hold a feast2282 unto the LORD.3068

10  And he said559 unto413 them, Let the LORD3068 be1961 so3651 with5973 you, as834 I will let you go,7971 and your little ones:2945 look7200 to it; for3588 evil7451 is before5048 6440 you.

11  Not3808 so:3651 go1980 now4994 ye that are men,1397 and serve5647 853 the LORD;3068 for3588 that ye859 did desire.1245 And they were driven out1644 from4480 854 Pharaoh's6547 presence.6440

12  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Stretch out5186 thine hand3027 over5921 the land776 of Egypt4714 for the locusts,697 that they may come up5927 upon5921 the land776 of Egypt,4714 and eat398 853 every3605 herb6212 of the land,776 even 853 all3605 that834 the hail1259 hath left.7604

13  And Moses4872 stretched forth5186 853 his rod4294 over5921 the land776 of Egypt,4714 and the LORD3068 brought5090 an east6921 wind7307 upon the land776 all3605 that1931 day,3117 and all3605 that night;3915 and when it was1961 morning,1242 the east6921 wind7307 brought5375 853 the locusts.697

14  And the locusts697 went up5927 over5921 all3605 the land776 of Egypt,4714 and rested5117 in all3605 the coasts1366 of Egypt:4714 very3966 grievous3515 were they; before6440 them there were1961 no3808 such3651 locusts697 as they, neither3808 after310 them shall be1961 such.3651

15  For they covered3680 853 the face5869 of the whole3605 earth,776 so that the land776 was darkened;2821 and they did eat398 853 every3605 herb6212 of the land,776 and all3605 the fruit6529 of the trees6086 which834 the hail1259 had left:3498 and there remained3498 not3808 any3605 green thing3418 in the trees,6086 or in the herbs6212 of the field,7704 through all3605 the land776 of Egypt.4714

16  Then Pharaoh6547 called7121 for Moses4872 and Aaron175 in haste;4116 and he said,559 I have sinned2398 against the LORD3068 your God,430 and against you.

17  Now6258 therefore forgive,5375 I pray thee,4994 my sin2403 only389 this once,6471 and entreat6279 the LORD3068 your God,430 that he may take away5493 from4480 5921 me this2088 853 death4194 only.7535

18  And he went out3318 from4480 5973 Pharaoh,6547 and entreated6279 413 the LORD.3068

19  And the LORD3068 turned2015 a mighty3966 strong2389 west3220 wind,7307 which took away5375 853 the locusts,697 and cast8628 them into the Red5488 sea;3220 there remained7604 not3808 one259 locust697 in all3605 the coasts1366 of Egypt.4714

20  But the LORD3068 hardened2388 853 Pharaoh's6547 heart,3820 so that he would not3808 let 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 go.7971

21  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Stretch out5186 thine hand3027 toward5921 heaven,8064 that there may be1961 darkness2822 over5921 the land776 of Egypt,4714 even darkness2822 which may be felt.4959

22  And Moses4872 stretched forth5186 853 his hand3027 toward5921 heaven;8064 and there was1961 a thick653 darkness2822 in all3605 the land776 of Egypt4714 three7969 days:3117

23  They saw7200 not3808 one376 853 another,251 neither3808 rose6965 any376 from his place4480 8478 for three7969 days:3117 but all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 had1961 light216 in their dwellings.4186

24  And Pharaoh6547 called7121 unto413 Moses,4872 and said,559 Go1980 ye, serve5647 853 the LORD;3068 only7535 let your flocks6629 and your herds1241 be stayed:3322 let your little ones2945 also1571 go1980 with5973 you.

25  And Moses4872 said,559 Thou859 must give5414 us3027 also1571 sacrifices2077 and burnt offerings,5930 that we may sacrifice6213 unto the LORD3068 our God.430

26  Our cattle4735 also1571 shall go1980 with5973 us; there shall not3808 a hoof6541 be left behind;7604 for3588 thereof4480 must we take3947 to serve5647 853 the LORD3068 our God;430 and we587 know3045 not3808 with what4100 we must serve5647 853 the LORD,3068 until5704 we come935 thither.8033

27  But the LORD3068 hardened2388 853 Pharaoh's6547 heart,3820 and he would14 not3808 let them go.7971

28  And Pharaoh6547 said559 unto him, Get1980 thee from4480 5921 me, take heed8104 to thyself, see7200 my face6440 no408 more;3254 for3588 in that day3117 thou seest7200 my face6440 thou shalt die.4191

29  And Moses4872 said,559 Thou hast spoken1696 well,3651 I will see7200 thy face6440 again3254 no3808 more.5750


1 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων εἴσελθε πρὸς Φαραω ἐγὼ γὰρ ἐσκλήρυνα αὐτοῦ τὴν καρδίαν καὶ τῶν θεραπόντων αὐτοῦ ἵνα ἑξῆς ἐπέλθῃ τὰ σημεῖα ταῦτα ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς

2 ὅπως διηγήσησθε εἰς τὰ ὦτα τῶν τέκνων ὑμῶν καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις τῶν τέκνων ὑμῶν ὅσα ἐμπέπαιχα τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις καὶ τὰ σημεῖά μου ἃ ἐποίησα ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ γνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος

3 εἰσῆλθεν δὲ Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων ἐναντίον Φαραω καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν Εβραίων ἕως τίνος οὐ βούλει ἐντραπῆναί με ἐξαπόστειλον τὸν λαόν μου ἵνα λατρεύσωσίν μοι

4 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ θέλῃς σὺ ἐξαποστεῖλαι τὸν λαόν μου ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ταύτην τὴν ὥραν αὔριον ἀκρίδα πολλὴν ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ὅριά σου

5 καὶ καλύψει τὴν ὄψιν τῆς γῆς καὶ οὐ δυνήσῃ κατιδεῖν τὴν γῆν καὶ κατέδεται πᾶν τὸ περισσὸν τῆς γῆς τὸ καταλειφθέν ὃ κατέλιπεν ὑμῖν ἡ χάλαζα καὶ κατέδεται πᾶν ξύλον τὸ φυόμενον ὑμῖν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

6 καὶ πλησθήσονταί σου αἱ οἰκίαι καὶ αἱ οἰκίαι τῶν θεραπόντων σου καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ οἰκίαι ἐν πάσῃ γῇ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ἃ οὐδέποτε ἑωράκασιν οἱ πατέρες σου οὐδὲ οἱ πρόπαπποι αὐτῶν ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας γεγόνασιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐκκλίνας Μωυσῆς ἐξῆλθεν ἀπὸ Φαραω

7 καὶ λέγουσιν οἱ θεράποντες Φαραω πρὸς αὐτόν ἕως τίνος ἔσται τοῦτο ἡμῖν σκῶλον ἐξαπόστειλον τοὺς ἀνθρώπους ὅπως λατρεύσωσιν τῷ θεῷ αὐτῶν ἢ εἰδέναι βούλει ὅτι ἀπόλωλεν Αἴγυπτος

8 καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν τόν τε Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων πρὸς Φαραω καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς πορεύεσθε καὶ λατρεύσατε τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν τίνες δὲ καὶ τίνες εἰσὶν οἱ πορευόμενοι

9 καὶ λέγει Μωυσῆς σὺν τοῖς νεανίσκοις καὶ πρεσβυτέροις πορευσόμεθα σὺν τοῖς υἱοῖς καὶ θυγατράσιν καὶ προβάτοις καὶ βουσὶν ἡμῶν ἔστιν γὰρ ἑορτὴ κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν

10 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἔστω οὕτως κύριος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν καθότι ἀποστέλλω ὑμᾶς μὴ καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν ὑμῶν ἴδετε ὅτι πονηρία πρόκειται ὑμῖν

11 μὴ οὕτως πορευέσθωσαν δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες καὶ λατρεύσατε τῷ θεῷ τοῦτο γὰρ αὐτοὶ ζητεῖτε ἐξέβαλον δὲ αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου Φαραω

12 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἔκτεινον τὴν χεῖρα ἐπὶ γῆν Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀναβήτω ἀκρὶς ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ κατέδεται πᾶσαν βοτάνην τῆς γῆς καὶ πάντα τὸν καρπὸν τῶν ξύλων ὃν ὑπελίπετο ἡ χάλαζα

13 καὶ ἐπῆρεν Μωυσῆς τὴν ῥάβδον εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν καὶ κύριος ἐπήγαγεν ἄνεμον νότον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν ἐκείνην καὶ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα τὸ πρωὶ ἐγενήθη καὶ ὁ ἄνεμος ὁ νότος ἀνέλαβεν τὴν ἀκρίδα

14 καὶ ἀνήγαγεν αὐτὴν ἐπὶ πᾶσαν γῆν Αἰγύπτου καὶ κατέπαυσεν ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ὅρια Αἰγύπτου πολλὴ σφόδρα προτέρα αὐτῆς οὐ γέγονεν τοιαύτη ἀκρὶς καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα οὐκ ἔσται οὕτως

15 καὶ ἐκάλυψεν τὴν ὄψιν τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐφθάρη ἡ γῆ καὶ κατέφαγεν πᾶσαν βοτάνην τῆς γῆς καὶ πάντα τὸν καρπὸν τῶν ξύλων ὃς ὑπελείφθη ἀπὸ τῆς χαλάζης οὐχ ὑπελείφθη χλωρὸν οὐδὲν ἐν τοῖς ξύλοις καὶ ἐν πάσῃ βοτάνῃ τοῦ πεδίου ἐν πάσῃ γῇ Αἰγύπτου

16 κατέσπευδεν δὲ Φαραω καλέσαι Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων λέγων ἡμάρτηκα ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ εἰς ὑμᾶς

17 προσδέξασθε οὖν μου τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ἔτι νῦν καὶ προσεύξασθε πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν καὶ περιελέτω ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ τὸν θάνατον τοῦτον

18 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Μωυσῆς ἀπὸ Φαραω καὶ ηὔξατο πρὸς τὸν θεόν

19 καὶ μετέβαλεν κύριος ἄνεμον ἀπὸ θαλάσσης σφοδρόν καὶ ἀνέλαβεν τὴν ἀκρίδα καὶ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὴν εἰς τὴν ἐρυθρὰν θάλασσαν καὶ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη ἀκρὶς μία ἐν πάσῃ γῇ Αἰγύπτου

20 καὶ ἐσκλήρυνεν κύριος τὴν καρδίαν Φαραω καὶ οὐκ ἐξαπέστειλεν τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ

21 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἔκτεινον τὴν χεῖρά σου εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν καὶ γενηθήτω σκότος ἐπὶ γῆν Αἰγύπτου ψηλαφητὸν σκότος

22 ἐξέτεινεν δὲ Μωυσῆς τὴν χεῖρα εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν καὶ ἐγένετο σκότος γνόφος θύελλα ἐπὶ πᾶσαν γῆν Αἰγύπτου τρεῖς ἡμέρας

23 καὶ οὐκ εἶδεν οὐδεὶς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ οὐκ ἐξανέστη οὐδεὶς ἐκ τῆς κοίτης αὐτοῦ τρεῖς ἡμέρας πᾶσι δὲ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἦν φῶς ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς κατεγίνοντο

24 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Φαραω Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων λέγων βαδίζετε λατρεύσατε κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν πλὴν τῶν προβάτων καὶ τῶν βοῶν ὑπολίπεσθε καὶ ἡ ἀποσκευὴ ὑμῶν ἀποτρεχέτω μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν

25 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς ἀλλὰ καὶ σὺ δώσεις ἡμῖν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ θυσίας ἃ ποιήσομεν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν

26 καὶ τὰ κτήνη ἡμῶν πορεύσεται μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν καὶ οὐχ ὑπολειψόμεθα ὁπλήν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν γὰρ λημψόμεθα λατρεῦσαι κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν ἡμεῖς δὲ οὐκ οἴδαμεν τί λατρεύσωμεν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν ἡμᾶς ἐκεῖ

27 ἐσκλήρυνεν δὲ κύριος τὴν καρδίαν Φαραω καὶ οὐκ ἐβουλήθη ἐξαποστεῖλαι αὐτούς

28 καὶ λέγει Φαραω ἄπελθε ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ ἔτι προσθεῖναι ἰδεῖν μου τὸ πρόσωπον ᾗ δ᾽ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ ὀφθῇς μοι ἀποθανῇ

29 λέγει δὲ Μωυσῆς εἴρηκας οὐκέτι ὀφθήσομαί σοι εἰς πρόσωπον

1 Et dixit Dominus ad Moysen: Ingredere ad Pharaonem: ego enim induravi cor ejus, et servorum illius, ut faciam signa mea hæc in eo:

2 et narres in auribus filii tui, et nepotum tuorum, quoties contriverim Ægyptios, et signa mea fecerim in eis: et sciatis quia ego Dominus.

3 Introierunt ergo Moyses et Aaron ad Pharaonem, et dixerunt ei: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Hebræorum: Usquequo non vis subjici 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 quæ operiat superficiem terræ, ne quidquam ejus appareat, sed comedatur quod residuum fuerit grandini: corrodet enim omnia ligna quæ germinant in agris.

6 Et implebunt domos tuas, et servorum tuorum, et omnium Ægyptiorum, quantam non viderunt patres tui, et avi, ex quo orti sunt super terram, usque in præsentem 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 Ægyptus?

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 solemnitas Domini Dei nostri.

10 Et respondit Pharao: 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 ejecti sunt de conspectu Pharaonis.

12 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: Extende manum tuam super terram Ægypti ad locustam, ut ascendat super eam, et devoret omnem herbam quæ residua fuerit grandini.

13 Et extendit Moyses virgam super terram Ægypti: et Dominus induxit ventum urentem tota die illa et nocte: et mane facto, ventus urens levavit locustas.

14 Quæ ascenderunt super universam terram Ægypti: et sederunt in cunctis finibus Ægyptiorum innumerabiles, quales ante illud tempus non fuerant, nec postea futuræ sunt.

15 Operueruntque universam superficiem terræ, vastantes omnia. Devorata est igitur herba terræ, et quidquid pomorum in arboribus fuit, quæ grando dimiserat: nihilque omnino virens relictum est in lignis et in herbis terræ, in cuncta Ægypto.

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 etiam hac vice, et rogate Dominum Deum vestrum, ut auferat a me mortem istam.

18 Egressusque Moyses de conspectu Pharaonis, oravit Dominum.

19 Qui flare fecit ventum ab occidente vehementissimum, et arreptam locustam projecit in mare Rubrum: non remansit ne una quidem in cunctis finibus Ægypti.

20 Et induravit Dominus cor Pharaonis, nec dimisit filios Israël.

21 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: Extende manum tuam in cælum: et sint tenebræ super terram Ægypti tam densæ, ut palpari queant.

22 Extenditque Moyses manum in cælum: et factæ sunt tenebræ horribiles in universa terra Ægypti tribus diebus.

23 Nemo vidit fratrem suum, nec movit se de loco in quo erat: ubicumque autem habitabant filii Israël, lux erat.

24 Vocavitque Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et dixit eis: Ite, sacrificate Domino: oves tantum vestræ et armenta remaneant, parvuli vestri eant vobiscum.

25 Ait Moyses: Hostias quoque et holocausta dabis nobis, quæ offeramus Domino Deo nostro.

26 Cuncti greges pergent nobiscum; non remanebit ex eis ungula: quæ necessaria sunt in cultum Domini Dei nostri: præsertim cum ignoremus quid debeat immolari, donec ad ipsum locum perveniamus.

27 Induravit autem Dominus cor Pharaonis, et noluit dimittere eos.

28 Dixitque Pharao ad Moysen: Recede a me, et cave ne ultra videas faciem meam: quocumque die apparueris mihi, morieris.

29 Respondit Moyses: Ita fiet ut locutus es: non videbo ultra faciem tuam.
