Exodus 5

1 - And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.
2 - And Pharaoh said, Who [is] the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.
3 - And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.
4 - And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.
5 - And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now [are] many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.
6 - And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,
7 - Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.
8 - And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish [ought] thereof: for they [be] idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go [and] sacrifice to our God.
9 - Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.
10 - And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.
11 - Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.
12 - So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.
13 - And the taskmasters hasted [them], saying, Fulfil your works, [your] daily tasks, as when there was straw.
14 - And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, [and] demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?
15 - Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?
16 - There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants [are] beaten; but the fault [is] in thine own people.
17 - But he said, Ye [are] idle, [ye are] idle: therefore ye say, Let us go [and] do sacrifice to the LORD.
18 - Go therefore now, [and] work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.
19 - And the officers of the children of Israel did see [that] they [were] in evil [case], after it was said, Ye shall not minish [ought] from your bricks of your daily task.
20 - And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:
21 - And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.
22 - And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou [so] evil entreated this people? why [is] it [that] thou hast sent me?
23 - For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
