Exodus 5:17
Context
The Israelites' Cry

15Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, Why deal you thus with your servants? 16There is no straw given to your servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people. 17But he said, You are idle, you are idle: therefore you say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD. 18Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall you deliver the tale of bricks. 19And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, You shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task. 20And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh: 21And they said to them, The LORD look on you, and judge; because you have made our smell to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us. 22And Moses returned to the LORD, and said, LORD, why have you so evil entreated this people? why is it that you have sent me? 23For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people; neither have you delivered your people at all.
