The eighth plague of the locusts. The ninth, of darkness: Pharao is still hardened.
 And the Lord said to Moses: Go in to Pharao; for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants: that I may work these my signs in him.
Et dixit Dominus ad Moysen : Egredere ad Pharaonem : ego enim induravi cor ejus, et servorum illius, ut faciam signa mea haec in eo :
 And thou mayest tell in the ears of thy sons, and of thy grandsons, how often I have plagued the Egyptians, and wrought my signs amongst them: and you may know that I am the Lord:
et narres in auribus filii tui, et nepotum tuorum, quoties contriverim Aegyptios, et signa mea fecerim in eis : et sciatis quia ego Dominus.
 Therefore Moses and Aaron went in to Pharao, and said to him: Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews: How long refusest thou to submit to me? let my people go, to sacrifice to me.
Introierunt ergo Moyses et Aaron ad Pharaonem, et dixerunt ei : Haec dicit Dominus Deus Hebraeorum : Usquequo non vis subjici mihi? dimitte populum meum, ut sacrificet mihi.
 But if thou resist, and wilt not let them go, behold I will bring in tomorrow the locust into thy coasts:
Sin autem resistis, et non vis dimittere eum : ecce ego inducam cras locustam in fines tuos :
 To cover the face of the earth that nothing thereof may appear, but that which the hail hath left may be eaten: for they shall feed upon all the trees that spring in the fields.
quae operiat superficiem terrae, ne quidquam ejus appareat, sed comedatur quod residuum fuerit grandini : corrodet enim omnia ligna quae germinant in agris.
 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of thy servants, and of all the Egyptians: such a number as thy fathers have not seen, nor thy grandfathers, from the time they were first upon the earth, until this present day. And he turned himself away, and went forth from Pharao.
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.
 And Pharao's servants said to him: How long shall we endure this scandal? let the men go to sacrifice to the Lord their God. Dost thou not see that Egypt is undone?
Dixerunt autem servi Pharaonis ad eum : Usquequo patiemur hoc scandalum? dimitte homines, ut sacrificent Domino Deo suo; nonne vides quod perierit Aegyptus?
 And they called back Moses and Aaron to Pharao: and he said to them: Go, sacrifice to the Lord your God: who are they that shall go?
Revocaveruntque Moysen et Aaron ad Pharaonem : qui dixit eis : Ite, sacrificate Domino Deo vestro : quinam sunt qui ituri sunt?
 Moses said: We will go with our young and old, with our sons and daughters, with our sheep and herds: for it is the solemnity of the Lord our God.
Ait Moyses : Cum parvulis nostris, et senioribus pergemus, cum filiis et filiabus, cum ovibus et armentis : est enim solemnitas Domini Dei nostri.
 And Pharao answered: So be the Lord with you, as I shall let you and your children go: who can doubt but that you intend some great evil?
Et respondit Pharao : Sic Dominus sit vobiscum, quomodo ego dimittam vos, et parvulos vestros, cui dubium est quod pessime cogitetis?
 It shall not be so: but go ye men only, and sacrifice to the Lord: for this yourselves also desired. And immediately they were cast out from Pharao's presence.
non fiet ita, sed ite tantum viri, et sacrificate Domino : hoc enim et ipsi petistis. Statimque ejecti sunt de conspectu Pharaonis.
 And the Lord said to Moses: Stretch forth thy hand upon the land of Egypt unto the locust, that it may come upon it, and devour every herb that is left after the hail.
Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen : Extende manum tuam super terram Aegypti ad locustam, ut ascendat super eam, et devoret omnem herbam quae residua fuerit grandini.
 And Moses stretched forth his rod upon the land of Egypt: and the Lord brought a burning wind all that day, and night: and when it was morning, the burning wind raised the locusts:
Et extendit Moyses virgam super terram Aegypti : et Dominus induxit ventum urentem tota die illa et nocte : et mane facto, ventus urens levavit locustas.
 And they came up over the whole land of Egypt: and rested in all the coasts of the Egyptians innumerable, the like as had not been before that time, nor shall be hereafter.
Quae ascenderunt super universam terram Aegypti : et sederunt in cunctis finibus Aegyptiorum innumerabiles, quales ante illud tempus non fuerant, nec postea futurae sunt.
 And they covered the whole face of the earth, wasting all things. And the grass of the earth was devoured, and what fruits soever were on the trees, which the hail had left: and there remained not any thing that was green on the trees, or in the herbs of the earth in all Egypt.
Operueruntque universam superficiem terrae, vastantes omnia. Devorata est igitur herba terrae, et quidquid pomorum in arboribus fuit, quae grando dimiserat : nihilque omnino virens relictum est in lignis et in herbis terrae, in cuncta Aegypto.
 Wherefore Pharao in haste called Moses and Aaron, and said to them: I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.
Quam ob rem festinus Pharao vocavit Moysen et Aaron, et dixit eis : Peccavi in Dominum Deum vestrum, et in vos.
 But now forgive me my sin this time also, and pray to the Lord your God, that he take away from me this death.
Sed nunc dimittite peccatum mihi etiam hac vice, et rogate Dominum Deum vestrum, ut auferat a me mortem istam.
 And Moses going forth from the presence of Pharao, prayed to the Lord.
Egressusque Moyses de conspectu Pharaonis, oravit Dominum.
 And he made a very strong wind to blow from the west, and it took the locusts and cast them into the Red Sea: there remained not so much as one in all the coasts of Egypt.
Qui flare fecit ventum ab occidente vehementissimum, et arreptam locustam projecit in mare Rubrum : non remansit ne una quidem in cunctis finibus Aegypti.
 And the Lord hardened Pharao's heart, neither did he let the children of Israel go.
Et induravit Dominus cor Pharaonis, nec dimisit filios Israel.
 And the Lord said to Moses: Stretch out thy hand towards heaven: and may there be darkness upon the land of Egypt, so thick that it may be felt.
Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen : Extende manum tuam in caelum : et sint tenebrae super terram Aegypti tam densae, ut palpari queant.
 And Moses stretched forth his hand towards heaven: and there came horrible darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.
Extenditque Moyses manum in caelum : et factae sunt tenebrae horribiles in universa terra Aegypti tribus diebus.
 No man saw his brother, nor moved himself out of the place where he was: but wheresoever the children of Israel dwelt there was light.
Nemo vidit fratrem suum, nec movit se de loco in quo erat : ubicumque autem habitabant filii Israel, lux erat.
 And Pharao called Moses and Aaron, and said to them: Go sacrifice to the Lord: let your sheep only, and herds remain; let your children go with you.
Vocavitque Pharao Moysen et Aaron, et dixit eis : Ite, sacrificate Domino : oves tantum vestrae et armenta remaneant, parvuli vestri eant vobiscum.
 Moses said: Thou shalt give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, to the Lord our God.
Ait Moyses : Hostias quoque et holocausta dabis nobis, quae offeramus Domino Deo nostro.
 All the flocks shall go with us: there shall not a hoof remain of them: for they are necessary for the service of the Lord our God: especially as we know not what must be offered, till we come to the very place.
Cuncti greges pergent nobiscum; non remanebit ex eis ungula : quae necessaria sunt in cultum Domini Dei nostri : praesertim cum ignoremus quid debeat immolari, donec ad ipsum locum perveniamus.
 And the Lord hardened Pharao's heart, and he would not let them go.
Induravit autem Dominus cor Pharaonis, et noluit dimittere eos.
 And Pharao said to Moses: Get thee from me, and beware thou see not my face any more: in what day soever thou shalt come in my sight, thou shalt die.
Dixitque Pharao ad Moysen : Recede a me, et cave ne ultra videas faciem meam : quocumque die apparueris mihi, morieris.
 Moses answered: So shall it be as thou hast spoken, I will not see thy face any more.
Respondit Moyses : Ita fiet ut locutus es : non videbo ultra faciem tuam.
