Exodus Chapter 5

, , , -: - , , -, . 1 And afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said unto Pharaoh: 'Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.'
-- , -: -, - . 2 And Pharaoh said: 'Who is the LORD, that I should hearken unto His voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, and moreover I will not let Israel go.'
, ; , ---, . 3 And they said: 'The God of the Hebrews hath met with us. Let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest He fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.'
, , , - ; , . 4 And the king of Egypt said unto them: 'Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, cause the people to break loose from their work? get you unto your burdens.'
, - ; , . 5 And Pharaoh said: 'Behold, the people of the land are now many, and will ye make them rest from their burdens?'
, , - , - . 6 And the same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying:
, -- : , , , . 7 'Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore. Let them go and gather straw for themselves.
- , -- , : - --- , . 8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make 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.
-, -; -, -. 9 Let heavier work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard lying words.'
, , -, : , . 10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying: 'Thus saith Pharaoh: I will not give you straw.
, , , : , . 11 Go yourselves, get you straw where ye can find it; for nought of your work shall be diminished.'
, - , , . 12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw.
, : - , . 13 And the taskmasters were urgent, saying: 'Fulfil your work, your daily task, as when there was straw.'
, , - , : , ---, -. 14 And the officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, saying: 'Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your appointed task in making brick both yesterday and today as heretofore?'
, , -, : , . 15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying: 'Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?
, , , ; , . 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 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 bricks.'
-, -- : - , - . 19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were set on mischief, when they said: 'Ye shall not diminish aught from your bricks, 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 hand to slay us.'
-, : , -- , . 22 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said: 'Lord, wherefore hast Thou dealt ill with this people? why is it that Thou hast sent me?
-, , , ; -, -. 23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Thy name, he hath dealt ill with this people; neither hast Thou delivered Thy people at all.'
