1 H310 And afterward H4872 Moses H175 and Aaron H935 [H8804] went in H559 [H8799] , and told H6547 Pharaoh H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H5971 , Let my people H7971 [H8761] go H2287 [H8799] , that they may hold a feast H4057 to me in the wilderness.
2 H6547 And Pharaoh H559 [H8799] said H3068 , Who is the LORD H8085 [H8799] , that I should obey H6963 his voice H3478 to let Israel H7971 [H8763] go H3045 [H8804] ? I know H3068 not the LORD H3478 , neither will I let Israel H7971 [H8762] go.
3 H559 [H8799] And they said H430 , The God H5680 of the Hebrews H7122 [H8738] hath met H3212 [H8799] with us: let us go H7969 , we pray thee, three H3117 days H1870 ' journey H4057 into the desert H2076 [H8799] , and sacrifice H3068 to the LORD H430 our God H6293 [H8799] ; lest he fall H1698 upon us with pestilence H2719 , or with the sword.
4 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H559 [H8799] said H4872 to them, Why do ye, Moses H175 and Aaron H6544 [H8686] , loose H5971 the people H4639 from their works H3212 [H8798] ? go H5450 to your burdens.
5 H6547 And Pharaoh H559 [H8799] said H5971 , Behold, the people H776 of the land H7227 now are many H7673 [H8689] , and ye make them rest H5450 from their burdens.
6 H6547 And Pharaoh H6680 [H8762] commanded H3117 the same day H5065 [H8802] the taskmasters H5971 of the people H7860 [H8802] , and their officers H559 [H8800] , saying,
7 H3254 [H8686] Ye shall no more H5414 [H8800] give H5971 the people H8401 straw H3835 [H8800] to make H3843 brick H8032 H8543 , as before H3212 [H8799] : let them go H7197 [H8782] and gather H8401 straw for themselves.
8 H4971 And the number H3843 of the bricks H6213 [H8802] , which they made H8032 H8543 before H7760 [H8799] , ye shall lay H1639 [H8799] upon them; ye shall not diminish H7503 [H8737] any of it: for they are idle H6817 [H8802] ; therefore they cry H559 [H8800] , saying H3212 [H8799] , Let us go H2076 [H8799] and sacrifice H430 to our God.
9 H5656 Let more work H3513 [H8799] be laid H582 upon the men H6213 [H8799] , that they may labour H8159 [H8799] in it; and let them not regard H8267 vain H1697 words.
10 H5065 [H8802] And the taskmasters H5971 of the people H3318 [H8799] went out H7860 [H8802] , and their officers H559 [H8799] , and they spoke H5971 to the people H559 [H8800] , saying H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H6547 Pharaoh H5414 [H8802] , I will not give H8401 you straw.
11 H3212 [H8798] Go H3947 [H8798] ye, get H8401 for yourselves straw H834 where H4672 [H8799] ye can find H3588 it: yet H1697 not any H5656 of your work H1639 [H8737] shall be diminished.
12 H5971 So the people H6327 [H8686] were scattered abroad H776 throughout all the land H4714 of Egypt H7197 [H8780] to gather H7179 stubble H8401 instead of straw.
13 H5065 [H8802] And the taskmasters H213 [H8801] hastened H559 [H8800] them, saying H3615 [H8761] , Fulfil H4639 your works H3117 , your daily H1697 tasks H1961 [H8800] , as when there was H8401 straw.
14 H7860 [H8802] And the officers H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H6547 , which Pharaoh's H5065 [H8802] taskmasters H7760 [H8804] had set H5221 [H8714] over them, were beaten H559 [H8800] , and demanded H3615 [H8765] , Why have ye not fulfilled H2706 your task H3835 [H8800] in making brick H8543 both yesterday H3117 and to day H8032 H8543 , as before?
15 H7860 [H8802] Then the officers H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H935 [H8799] came H6817 [H8799] and cried H6547 to Pharaoh H559 [H8800] , saying H6213 [H8799] , Why dealest H5650 thou thus with thy servants?
16 H8401 There is no straw H5414 [H8737] given H5650 to thy servants H559 [H8802] , and they say H6213 [H8798] to us, Make H3843 brick H5650 : and, behold, thy servants H5221 [H8716] are beaten H2398 [H8804] ; but the fault H5971 is in thy own people.
17 H559 [H8799] But he said H7503 [H8737] , Ye are idle H7503 [H8737] , ye are idle H559 [H8802] : therefore ye say H3212 [H8799] , Let us go H2076 [H8799] and sacrifice H3068 to the LORD.
18 H3212 [H8798] Go H5647 [H8798] therefore now, and work H8401 ; for there shall no straw H5414 [H8735] be given H5414 [H8799] you, yet shall ye deliver H8506 the number H3843 of bricks.
19 H7860 [H8802] And the officers H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H7200 [H8799] saw H7451 that they were in trouble H559 [H8800] , after it was said H1639 [H8799] , Ye shall not diminish H3843 the number of your bricks H3117 of your daily H1697 task.
20 H6293 [H8799] And they met H4872 Moses H175 and Aaron H5324 [H8737] , who stood H7125 [H8800] in the way H3318 [H8800] , as they came forth H6547 from Pharaoh:
21 H559 [H8799] And they said H3068 to them, The LORD H7200 [H8799] look H8199 [H8799] upon you, and judge H7381 H887 [H8689] ; because ye have made us odious H5869 in the eyes H6547 of Pharaoh H5869 , and in the eyes H5650 of his servants H5414 [H8800] , to put H2719 a sword H3027 in their hands H2026 [H8800] to slay us.
22 H4872 And Moses H7725 [H8799] returned H3068 to the LORD H559 [H8799] , and said H136 , Lord H7489 [H8689] , why hast thou so oppressed H5971 this people H7971 [H8804] ? why is it that thou hast sent me?
