PLAGUE OF 30 million locusts hits Egypt…just in time for Passover

HOLY MOSES! One down, nine to go.


The Atlantic Wire A plague of over 30 million locusts swarmed over Egypt’s cities and farms just 3 weeks before Passover begins. Although this happens every year as part of the locusts’ natural migration pattern, this year’s swarms are  larger than ever before. Egyptians are freaked out by millions of nasty bugs buzzing through the air at all hours of day and night, descending upon the agriculture fields where they’re known to destroy entire crops, just like the Passover story.

Plague of locusts (אַרְבֶּה): Ex. 10:1–20

This is what the LORD,the God of the Hebrews, says: ‘Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you refuse to let them go, I will bring locusts into your country tomorrow. They will cover the face of the ground so that it cannot be seen. They will devour what little you have left after the hail, including every tree that is growing in your fields. They will fill your houses and those of all your officials and all the Egyptians—something neither your fathers nor your forefathers have ever seen from the day they settled in this land till now.

Fast Forward to 1:00 to hear the sounds of these swarms
