King James Version (KJV)

Exodus 5:8

5. And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, & you make them rest from their burdens. 6. And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taske-masters of the people, and their officers, saying; 7. Yee shall no more giue the people straw to make bricke, as heretofore: let them goe and gather straw for themselues. 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.
