Exodus 5:10 Parallel
CommentaryExodus 5:10 Parallel Commentaries
So the Egyptians made the Israelites their slaves. They appointed brutal slave drivers over them, hoping to wear them down with crushing labor. They forced them to build the cities of Pithom and Rameses as supply centers for the king.
Then the LORD told him, "I have certainly seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their cries of distress because of their harsh slave drivers. Yes, I am aware of their suffering.
That same day Pharaoh sent this order to the Egyptian slave drivers and the Israelite foremen:
Load them down with more work. Make them sweat! That will teach them to listen to lies!"
Go and get it yourselves. Find it wherever you can. But you must produce just as many bricks as before!"
This message came to me concerning the animals in the Negev: The caravan moves slowly across the terrible desert to Egypt--donkeys weighed down with riches and camels loaded with treasure--all to pay for Egypt's protection. They travel through the wilderness, a place of lionesses and lions, a place where vipers and poisonous snakes live. All this, and Egypt will give you nothing in return.
