5:5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now [are] many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.
5:6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the task-masters of the people, and their officers, saying,
5:7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore; let them go and gather straw for themselves.
5:8 And the number of the bricks which they made heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish [aught] thereof; for they are idle: therefore they cry, saying, Let us go [and] sacrifice to our God.

5:16 There is no straw given to thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and behold, thy servants [are] beaten; but the fault [is] in thy own people.
5:18 Go therefore now, [and] work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the number of bricks.
5:19 And the officers of the children of Israel saw [that] they [were] in evil [case], after it was said, Ye shall not diminish [aught] from your bricks of your daily task.
5:20 ¶ And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:
5:21 And they said to them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savor 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.
5:23 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.
