But he said , Ye are idle , ye are idle : therefore ye say , Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.18Go 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 dailytask.20
And they metMoses and Aaron, who stood in the way , as they came forth from Pharaoh:21
And they said unto them, The LORDlook 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.
And Mosesreturned unto the LORD, and said , Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?
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 .
