The condition of the Israelites at this time became one of complete vassalage or slavery, probably owing to the fact that the Hyksos were driven out and a new dynasty was established, which knew nothing of Joseph and his people.SARIS">RAB-SARIS /Jl(which see) and Jl:jump,"RABSHEKAH"rabshakeh /Jl(which see) with a great host against Jerusalem. The names of the-two officials are not known.
