“And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in euill case, after it was said, Yee shall not minish ought from your brickes of your dayly taske.”
King James Version (KJV)
16. There is no straw giuen vnto thy seruants, and they say to vs, Make bricke: and beholde, thy seruants are beaten; but the fault is in thine owne people. 17. But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let vs goe and doe sacrifice to the Lord. 18. Goe therefore now and worke: for there shall no straw bee giuen you, yet shall ye deliuer the tale of brickes. 19. And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in euill case, after it was said, Yee shall not minish ought from your brickes of your dayly taske. 20. ¶ And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came foorth from Pharaoh. 21. And they said vnto them; The Lord looke vpon you, and iudge, because you haue made our sauour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his seruants, to put a sword in their hand to slay vs. 22. And Moses returned vnto the Lord, and said, Lord, Wherefore hast thou so euill intreated this people? Why is it that thou hast sent me?
