“Don’t continue to supply the people with straw for making bricks, as before. They must go and gather straw for themselves.

Tools specific to Exo 5:8

Unchecked Copy Box Exo 5:8

But require the same quota of bricks from them as they were making before; do not reduce it. For they are slackers — that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’

Unchecked Copy Box Exo 5:9

Impose heavier work on the men. Then they will be occupied with it and not pay attention to deceptive words.”

Go get straw yourselves wherever you can find it, but there will be no reduction at all in your workload.’ ”

Unchecked Copy Box Exo 5:15

So the Israelite foremen went in and cried for help to Pharaoh: “Why are you treating your servants this way?

Tools specific to Exo 5:16

Unchecked Copy Box Exo 5:16

No straw has been given to your servants, yet they say to us, ‘Make bricks! ’ Look, your servants are being beaten, but it is your own people who are at fault.”

But he said, “You are slackers. Slackers! That is why you are saying, ‘Let us go sacrifice to the LORD.’

Now get to work. No straw will be given to you, but you must produce the same quantity of bricks.”

The Israelite foremen saw that they were in trouble when they were told, “You cannot reduce your daily quota of bricks.”
