“Goe ye, get you straw where you can find it: yet not ought of your worke shall be diminished.”
King James Version (KJV)
8. And the tale of the brickes which they did make heretofore, you shall lay vpon them: you shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us goe and sacrifice to our God. 9. Let there more worke be layde vpon the men, that they may labour therein, and let them not regard vaine wordes. 10. ¶ And the taske-masters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not giue you straw. 11. Goe ye, get you straw where you can find it: yet not ought of your worke shall be diminished. 12. So the people were scattered abroad throughout al the land of Egypt, to gather stubble in stead of straw. 13. And the taske-masters hasted them, saying; Fulfill your workes, your dayly taskes, as when there was straw. 14. And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaohs task-masters had set ouer them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore haue ye not fulfilled your taske, in making bricke, both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?
