Locusts (אַרְבֶּה): Ex. 10:1–20


The Eight Plague: The Plague of Locusts, illustration from the 1890Holman Bible

This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? 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.

— Exodus 10:3–6


Just a random though of how things repeat in the different times, different countries, under different circumstances, but vicious circle of time will never be broken.
