Who Is God
Bricks Without Straw
SEC 6 PT 10 P11
1Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh
and said, “This is what the Lordthe God of Israel, says: ‘Let my
people go, so that they may hold a festival to me
in the wilderness.’ ”
2Pharaoh said, “Who is
the Lord, that I should obey him and let Israel
go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let
Israel go.”
3Then they said, “The
God of the Hebrews has
met with us. Now let us
take a three-day journey into the wilderness to
offer sacrifices to the Lord our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the
4But the king of Egypt said, “Moses and Aaron,
why are you taking the people away from their labor? Get back to your
5Then Pharaoh said,
Look, the people of the land are now numerous,
and you are stopping them from working.”
6That same day Pharaoh
gave this order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the
7You are no longer to supply the people with
straw for making bricks;
let them go and gather their own straw. 
8But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; dont
reduce the quota. They
are lazy; that is why they
are crying out, ‘Let us go
and sacrifice to our God.’ 
9Make the work harder
for the people so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies.”
10Then the slave drivers
and the overseers went
out and said to the people, “This is what Pharaoh says: ‘I will not
give you any more straw. 
11Go and get your own straw wherever you can
find it, but your work will not be reduced at
all.’ ” 
12So the people scattered
all over Egypt to gather
stubble to use for straw.
 13The slave drivers kept
pressing them, saying,
Complete the work required of you for each
day, just as when you had straw.” 
14And Pharaohs slave
drivers beat the Israelite
overseers they had appointed, demanding, Why havent you met
your quota of bricks yesterday or today, as before?”
15Then the Israelite overseers went and appealed to Pharaoh:
Why have you treated
your servants this way?
16Your servants are
given no straw, yet we are told, ‘Make bricks!’
Your servants are being beaten, but the fault is with your own people.”
17Pharaoh said, “Lazy, thats what you arelazy! That is why you keep saying, ‘Let us go
and sacrifice to the Lord.’
18Now get to work. You
will not be given any straw, yet you must produce your full quota of bricks.”
19The Israelite overseers
realized they were in
trouble when they were
told, “You are not to reduce the number of bricks required of you for
each day.” 
20When they left Pharaoh, they found Moses and Aaron waiting
to meet them,
21and they said, “May
the Lord look on you and
judge you! You have made us obnoxious to
Pharaoh and his officials
and have put a sword in their hand to kill us.”
God Promises
22Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Why,
Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Is this why you sent me? 
23Ever since I went to
Pharaoh to speak in your
name, he has brought
trouble on this people,
and you have not rescued
your people at all.”
1Then the Lord said to
Moses, “Now you will
see what I will do to
Pharaoh: Because of my
mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.”
2God also said to Moses,
I am the Lord. 
3I appeared to Abraham,
to Isaac and to Jacob as
God Almighty, but by my name the Lord I did not make myself fully known to them
4I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of
Canaan, where they
resided as foreigners
5Moreover, I have heard
the groaning of the Israelites, whom the
Egyptians are enslaving,
and I have remembered my covenant.
