Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:3 - Then they said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please let us go a three days’ journey into the wilderness that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God, lest he fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:4 - But the king of Egypt said to them, “Moses and Aaron, why do you take the people away from their work? Get back to your burdens.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:6 - The same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their foremen,

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:7 - “You shall no longer give the people straw to make bricks, as in the past; let them go and gather straw for themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:8 - But the number of bricks that they made in the past you shall impose on them, you shall by no means reduce it, for they are idle. Therefore they cry, ‘Let us go and offer sacrifice to our God.’

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:9 - Let heavier work be laid on the men that they may labor at it and pay no regard to lying words.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:10 - So the taskmasters and the foremen of the people went out and said to the people, “Thus says Pharaoh, ‘I will not give you straw.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:15 - Then the foremen of the people of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, “Why do you treat your servants like this?

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:16 - No straw is given to your servants, yet they say to us, ‘Make bricks!’ And behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:17 - But he said, “You are idle, you are idle; that is why you say, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to the LORD.’

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:18 - Go now and work. No straw will be given you, but you must still deliver the same number of bricks.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:19 - The foremen of the people of Israel saw that they were in trouble when they said, “You shall by no means reduce your number of bricks, your daily task each day.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:21 - and they said to them, “The LORD look on you and judge, because you have made us stink in the sight of Pharaoh and his servants, and have put a sword in their hand to kill us.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:22 - Then Moses turned to the LORD and said, “O Lord, why have you done evil to this people? Why did you ever send me?

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 5:23 - For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all.”
