Exodus 5 (WEBP)

[1] Afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said to Pharaoh, “This is what Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, ‘Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.’ ”
[2] Pharaoh said, “Who is Yahweh, that I should listen to his voice to let Israel go? I don’t know Yahweh, and moreover I will not let Israel go.”
[3] They said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh, our God, lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword.”
[4] The king of Egypt said to them, “Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens!”
[5] Pharaoh said, “Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make them rest from their burdens.”
[6] The same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying,
[7] “You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick, as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves.
[8] You shall require from them the number of the bricks which they made before. You shall not diminish anything of it, for they are idle. Therefore they cry, saying, ‘Let’s go and sacrifice to our God.’
[9] Let heavier work be laid on the men, that they may labor in it. Don’t let them pay any attention to lying words.”
[10] The taskmasters of the people went out with their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, “This is what Pharaoh says: ‘I will not give you straw.
[11] Go yourselves, get straw where you can find it, for nothing of your work shall be diminished.’ ”
[12] So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw.
[13] The taskmasters were urgent saying, “Fulfill your work quota daily, as when there was straw!”
[14] The officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and were asked, “Why haven’t you fulfilled your quota both yesterday and today, in making brick as before?”
[15] Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, “Why do you deal this way with your servants?
[16] No straw is given to your servants, and they tell us, ‘Make brick!’ and behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.”
[17] But Pharaoh said, “You are idle! You are idle! Therefore you say, ‘Let’s go and sacrifice to Yahweh.’
[18] Go therefore now, and work; for no straw shall be given to you; yet you shall deliver the same number of bricks!”
[19] The officers of the children of Israel saw that they were in trouble when it was said, “You shall not diminish anything from your daily quota of bricks!”
[20] They met Moses and Aaron, who stood along the way, as they came out from Pharaoh.
[21] They said to them, “May Yahweh look at you and judge, because you have made us a stench to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to kill us!”
[22] Moses returned to Yahweh, and said, “Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Why is it that you have sent me?
[23] For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people. You have not rescued your people at all!”

Exodus 5 (KJVS)

[1] And afterward H310 Moses H4872 and Aaron H175 went in H935 (8804), and told H559 (8799) Pharaoh H6547, Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478, Let my people H5971 go H7971 (8761), that they may hold a feast H2287 (8799) unto me in the wilderness H4057.
[2] And Pharaoh H6547 said H559 (8799), Who [is] the LORD H3068, that I should obey H8085 (8799) his voice H6963 to let Israel H3478 go H7971 (8763)? I know H3045 (8804) not the LORD H3068, neither will I let Israel H3478 go H7971 (8762).
[3] And they said H559 (8799), The God H430 of the Hebrews H5680 hath met H7122 (8738) with us: let us go H3212 (8799), we pray thee, three H7969 days H3117’ journey H1870 into the desert H4057, and sacrifice H2076 (8799) unto the LORD H3068 our God H430; lest he fall H6293 (8799) upon us with pestilence H1698, or with the sword H2719.
[4] And the king H4428 of Egypt H4714 said H559 (8799) unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses H4872 and Aaron H175, let H6544 (8686) the people H5971 from their works H4639? get H3212 (8798) you unto your burdens H5450.
[5] And Pharaoh H6547 said H559 (8799), Behold, the people H5971 of the land H776 now [are] many H7227, and ye make them rest H7673 (8689) from their burdens H5450.
[6] And Pharaoh H6547 commanded H6680 (8762) the same day H3117 the taskmasters H5065 (8802) of the people H5971, and their officers H7860 (8802), saying H559 (8800),
[7] Ye shall no more H3254 (8686) give H5414 (8800) the people H5971 straw H8401 to make H3835 (8800) brick H3843, as heretofore H8032 H8543: let them go H3212 (8799) and gather H7197 (8782) straw H8401 for themselves.
[8] And the tale H4971 of the bricks H3843, which they did make H6213 (8802) heretofore H8032 H8543, ye shall lay H7760 (8799) upon them; ye shall not diminish H1639 (8799) [ought] thereof: for they [be] idle H7503 (8737); therefore they cry H6817 (8802), saying H559 (8800), Let us go H3212 (8799) [and] sacrifice H2076 (8799) to our God H430.
[9] Let there more work H5656 be laid H3513 (8799) upon the men H582, that they may labour H6213 (8799) therein; and let them not regard H8159 (8799) vain H8267 words H1697.
[10] And the taskmasters H5065 (8802) of the people H5971 went out H3318 (8799), and their officers H7860 (8802), and they spake H559 (8799) to the people H5971, saying H559 (8800), Thus saith H559 (8804) Pharaoh H6547, I will not give H5414 (8802) you straw H8401.
[11] Go H3212 (8798) ye, get H3947 (8798) you straw H8401 where H834 ye can find H4672 (8799) it: yet H3588 not ought H1697 of your work H5656 shall be diminished H1639 (8737).
[12] So the people H5971 were scattered abroad H6327 (8686) throughout all the land H776 of Egypt H4714 to gather H7197 (8780) stubble H7179 instead of straw H8401.
[13] And the taskmasters H5065 (8802) hasted H213 (8801) [them], saying H559 (8800), Fulfil H3615 (8761) your works H4639, [your] daily H3117 tasks H1697, as when there was H1961 (8800) straw H8401.
[14] And the officers H7860 (8802) of the children H1121 of Israel H3478, which Pharaoh’s H6547 taskmasters H5065 (8802) had set H7760 (8804) over them, were beaten H5221 (8714), [and] demanded H559 (8800), Wherefore have ye not fulfilled H3615 (8765) your task H2706 in making brick H3835 (8800) both yesterday H8543 and to day H3117, as heretofore H8032 H8543?
[15] Then the officers H7860 (8802) of the children H1121 of Israel H3478 came H935 (8799) and cried H6817 (8799) unto Pharaoh H6547, saying H559 (8800), Wherefore dealest H6213 (8799) thou thus with thy servants H5650?
[16] There is no straw H8401 given H5414 (8737) unto thy servants H5650, and they say H559 (8802) to us, Make H6213 (8798) brick H3843: and, behold, thy servants H5650 [are] beaten H5221 (8716); but the fault H2398 (8804) [is] in thine own people H5971.
[17] But he said H559 (8799), Ye [are] idle H7503 (8737), [ye are] idle H7503 (8737): therefore ye say H559 (8802), Let us go H3212 (8799) [and] do sacrifice H2076 (8799) to the LORD H3068.
[18] Go H3212 (8798) therefore now, [and] work H5647 (8798); for there shall no straw H8401 be given H5414 (8735) you, yet shall ye deliver H5414 (8799) the tale H8506 of bricks H3843.
[19] And the officers H7860 (8802) of the children H1121 of Israel H3478 did see H7200 (8799) [that] they [were] in evil H7451 [case], after it was said H559 (8800), Ye shall not minish H1639 (8799) [ought] from your bricks H3843 of your daily H3117 H3117 task H1697.
[20] And they met H6293 (8799) Moses H4872 and Aaron H175, who stood H5324 (8737) in the way H7125 (8800), as they came forth H3318 (8800) from Pharaoh H6547:
[21] And they said H559 (8799) unto them, The LORD H3068 look H7200 (8799) upon you, and judge H8199 (8799); because ye have made our savour H7381 to be abhorred H887 (8689) in the eyes H5869 of Pharaoh H6547, and in the eyes H5869 of his servants H5650, to put H5414 (8800) a sword H2719 in their hand H3027 to slay H2026 (8800) us.
[22] And Moses H4872 returned H7725 (8799) unto the LORD H3068, and said H559 (8799), Lord H136, wherefore hast thou [so] evil entreated H7489 (8689) this people H5971? why [is] it [that] thou hast sent H7971 (8804) me?
[23] For since I came H935 (8804) to Pharaoh H6547 to speak H1696 (8763) in thy name H8034, he hath done evil H7489 (8689) to this people H5971; neither hast thou delivered H5337 (8689) thy people H5971 at all H5337 (8687).

Young’s Literal Translation

Exodus 5 (YLT)

[1] And afterwards have Moses and Aaron entered, and they say unto Pharaoh, ‘Thus said Jehovah, God of Israel, Send My people away, and they keep a feast to Me in the wilderness;’
[2] and Pharaoh saith, ‘Who is Jehovah, that I hearken to His voice, to send Israel away? I have not known Jehovah, and Israel also I do not send away.’
[3] And they say, ‘The God of the Hebrews hath met with us, let us go, we pray thee, a journey of three days into the wilderness, and we sacrifice to Jehovah our God, lest He meet us with pestilence or with sword.’
[4] And the king of Egypt saith unto them, ‘Why, Moses and Aaron, do ye free the people from its works? go to your burdens.’
[5] Pharaoh also saith, ‘Lo, numerous now is the people of the land, and ye have caused them to cease from their burdens!’
[6] And Pharaoh commandeth, on that day, the exactors among the people and its authorities, saying,
[7] ‘Ye do not add to give straw to the people for the making of the bricks, as heretofore-they go and have gathered straw for themselves;
[8] and the proper quantity of the bricks which they are making heretofore ye do put on them, ye do not diminish from it, for they are remiss, therefore they are crying, saying, Let us go, let us sacrifice to our God;
[9] let the service be heavy on the men, and let them work at it, and not be dazzled by lying words.’
[10] And the exactors of the people, and its authorities, go out, and speak unto the people, saying, ‘Thus said Pharaoh, I do not give you straw,
[11] ye-go ye, take for yourselves straw where ye find it, for there is nothing of your service diminished.’
[12] And the people is scattered over all the land of Egypt, to gather stubble for straw,
[13] and the exactors are making haste, saying, ‘Complete your works, the matter of a day in its day, as when there is straw.’
[14] And the authorities of the sons of Israel, whom the exactors of Pharaoh have placed over them, are beaten, saying, ‘Wherefore have ye not completed your portion in making brick as heretofore, both yesterday and to-day?’
[15] And the authorities of the sons of Israel come in and cry unto Pharaoh, saying, ‘Why dost thou thus to thy servants?
[16] Straw is not given to thy servants, and they are saying to us, Make bricks, and lo, thy servants are smitten-and thy people hath sinned.’
[17] And he saith, ‘Remiss-ye are remiss, therefore ye are saying, Let us go, let us sacrifice to Jehovah;
[18] and now, go, serve; and straw is not given to you, and the measure of bricks ye do give.’
[19] And the authorities of the sons of Israel see them in affliction, saying, ‘Ye do not diminish from your bricks; the matter of a day in its day.’
[20] And they meet Moses and Aaron standing to meet them, in their coming out from Pharaoh,
[21] and say unto them, ‘Jehovah look upon you, and judge, because ye have caused our fragrance to stink in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants-to give a sword into their hand to slay us.’
[22] And Moses turneth back unto Jehovah, and saith, ‘Lord, why hast Thou done evil to this people? why is this?-Thou hast sent me!
[23] and since I have come unto Pharaoh, to speak in Thy name, he hath done evil to this people, and Thou hast not at all delivered Thy people.’
