Exodus 5:4  (King James Version)
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.

Jeremiah 38:4 ; Amos 7:10 ; Luke 23:2 ; Acts 16:20 Acts 16:21 ; 24:5

{Taphreeoo,} from {pard,} to loose, disengage; and which we render let, from the Anglo-Saxon {lettan,} to hinder. Ye hinder the people from their work: "Get you unto your burdens
" "Let religion alone and mind your work." The language not only of tyranny, but of thoughtless irreligion.
