CommentaryExodus 5:13 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.
That same day Pharaoh sent this order to the Egyptian slave drivers and the Israelite foremen:
So the people scattered throughout the land of Egypt in search of stubble to use as straw.
Then they whipped the Israelite foremen they had put in charge of the work crews. "Why haven't you met your quotas either yesterday or today?" they demanded.
