Exodus 10:6

Context
10:6 They will fill your houses, the houses of your servants, and all the houses of Egypt, such as 1  neither 2  your fathers nor your grandfathers have seen since they have been 3  in the land until this day!’” Then Moses 4  turned and went out from Pharaoh.

1 tn The relative pronoun אֲשֶׁר (’asher) is occasionally used as a comparative conjunction (see GKC 499 §161.b).

2 tn Heb “which your fathers have not seen, nor your fathers’ fathers.”

3 tn The Hebrew construction מִיּוֹם הֱיוֹתָם (miyyom heyotam, “from the day of their being”). The statement essentially says that no one, even the elderly, could remember seeing a plague of locusts like this. In addition, see B. Childs, “A Study of the Formula, ‘Until This Day,’” JBL 82 (1963).

4 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Moses) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
