12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up on the land of Egypt and eat 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 [a]brought the locusts.14 The locusts came up over all the land of Egypt and settled in all the territory of Egypt; they were very [b]numerous. There had never been so many[c]locusts, nor would there be so many[d]again.15 For they covered the surface of the whole land, so that the land was darkened; and they ate 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.16 Then Pharaoh hurriedly called for Moses and Aaron, and he said, “I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you.17 Now therefore, please forgive my sin only this once, and make supplication to the Lord your God, that He would only remove this death from me.”18 He 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 [e]Red Sea; not one locust was left in all the territory of Egypt.
