56 Pharaoh's severity. spake to the people, saying, Thus saith haraoh, I will not give you straw. 11 Goye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not aught 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 task-masters 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 task-masters 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 T Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants 2 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 %. 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 :* 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 hands 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 lo in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
