Bo: "Come"

 The Torah Reading portion this week is from Exodus 10:1-13:16.

 Exodus 10:1-13

Invasion of locusts
 1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh. I’ve made him and his officials stubborn so that I can show them my signs 2 and so that you can tell your children and grandchildren how I overpowered the Egyptians with the signs I did among them. You will know that I am the LORD.”  3 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said to him, “This is what the LORD, the Hebrews’ God, says: How long will you refuse to respect me? Let my people go so that they can worship me. 4 Otherwise, if you refuse to let my people go, I’m going to bring locusts into your country tomorrow. 5 They will cover the landscape so that you won’t be able to see the ground. They will eat the last bit of vegetation that was left after the hail. They will eat all your trees growing in the fields. 6 The locusts will fill your houses and all your officials’ houses and all the Egyptians’ houses. Your parents and even your grandparents have never seen anything like it during their entire lifetimes in this fertile land.” Then Moses turned and left Pharaoh.
 7 Pharaoh’s officials said to him, “How long will this man trap us in a corner like this? Let the people go so that they can worship the LORD their God. Don’t you get it? Egypt is being destroyed!”
 8 So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, “Go! Worship the LORD your God! But who exactly is going with you?”
 9 Moses said, “We’ll go with our young and old, with our sons and daughters, and with our flocks and herds, because we all must observe the LORD’s festival.”
 10 Pharaoh said to them, “Yes, the LORD will be with you, all right, especially if I let your children go with you! Obviously, you are plotting some evil scheme. 11 No way! Only your men can go and worship the LORD, because that’s what you asked for.” Then Pharaoh had them chased out of his presence.
 12 Then the LORD said to Moses: “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt so that the locusts will swarm over the land of Egypt and eat all of the land’s grain and everything that the hail left.” 13 So Moses stretched out his shepherd’s rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD made an east wind blow over the land all that day and all that night. When morning came, the east wind had carried in the locusts.
