 10:13
10:13 Moses raised his hand over Egypt, and all that day and night, God made an east wind blow over the land. When morning came, the east wind was carrying the locusts.
Vayet Moshe et-matehu al-erets Mitsrayim v'Adonay nihag ruach-kadim ba'arets kol-hayom hahu vechol-halaylah haboker hayah veruach hakadim nasa et-ha'arbeh.



Commentary:

east wind
  The east wind would often blow across the desert from Arabia, or even from Iran, Pakistan or India, carrying locusts (cf. Diodorus Siculus 3:29; Orosius 4:11; Livy 42:2; Aelien, Of the Nature of Animals 3:12).
