They will cover 1 the surface 2 of the earth, so that you 3 will be unable to see the ground. They will eat the remainder of what escaped 4 – what is left over 5 for you – from the hail, and they will eat every tree that grows for you from the field.
The Lord said to Moses, “Extend your hand over the land of Egypt for 1 the locusts, that they may come up over the land of Egypt and eat everything that grows 2 in the ground, everything that the hail has left.”
When it was reported 1 to the king of Egypt that the people had fled, 2 the heart of Pharaoh and his servants was turned against the people, and the king and his servants said, 3 “What in the world have we done? 4 For we have released the people of Israel 5 from serving us!”
“This is what 1 the Lord has commanded: 2 ‘Each person is to gather 3 from it what he can eat, an omer 4 per person 5 according to the number 6 of your people; 7 each one will pick it up 8 for whoever lives 9 in his tent.’”
Moses said, “This is what 1 the Lord has commanded: ‘Fill an omer with it to be kept 2 for generations to come, 3 so that they may see 4 the food I fed you in the desert when I brought you out from the land of Egypt.’”

Then he must remove all of its fat (just as fat was removed from the peace offering sacrifice) and the priest must offer it up in smoke on the altar for a soothing aroma to the Lord. So the priest will make atonement 1 on his behalf and he will be forgiven. 2
and he must bring his penalty for guilt 1 to the Lord for his sin that he has committed, a female from the flock, whether a female sheep or a female goat, for a sin offering. So the priest will make atonement 2 on his behalf for 3 his sin.
“‘If he cannot afford an animal from the flock, 1 he must bring his penalty for guilt for his sin that he has committed, 2 two turtledoves or two young pigeons, 3 to the Lord, one for a sin offering and one for a burnt offering.
And whatever holy thing he violated 1 he must restore and must add one fifth to it and give it to the priest. So the priest will make atonement 2 on his behalf with the guilt offering ram and he will be forgiven.” 3
