THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

5:7Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

5:8And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

5:9Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

5:10And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

5:11Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

5:12So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

5:13And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

5:14And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

5:15Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

5:16There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.

5:17But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.

5:18Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

5:19And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

2 Samuel (Author Compiled by Isaiah from records of Samuel, David, Nathan, and Gad.)

12:31And he brought forth the people that were therein, and put them under saws, and under harrows of iron, and under axes of iron, and made them pass through the brickkiln: and thus did he unto all the cities of the children of Ammon. So David and all the people returned unto Jerusalem.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

43:9Take great stones in thine hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which is at the entry of Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of the men of Judah;

Nahum (Author Nahum)

3:14Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds: go into clay, and tread the morter, make strong the brickkiln.
