Daily Bread welcomes you back to study
with us further in the book of Exodus. Moses and Aaron have arrived in
Egypt and have spoken to the elders of the children of Israel telling them
of Godís plan to deliver them from the bondage of Pharaoh the king of Egypt. The people
believed and worshipped God for having compassion on them.
Moses and Aaron, then went to Pharaoh
and told him that the God of Israel said, Let my people go, so they can
worship me in the wilderness. Pharaoh answered, Who is the Lord that I
should obey his voice and let Israel go? I donít know the Lord, and I wonít
let Israel go. They repeated Godís command and the king of Egypt refused
again, then asked them, Why do you take the people away from their work?

The same day, Pharaoh ordered the
taskmasters to stop giving the people straw to make brick and make them get
the straw themselves, but the quota of bricks remained the same. Pharaoh
said, If the people donít have anything better to do than cry, Let us go and
sacrifice to our God, then make them do more work to keep them busy and they
wonít have time for empty promises.
The people were scattered throughout
Egypt to find grass instead of straw and the taskmasters drove them to
produce as much as they had before when there was straw. So their
daily workload was much harder.
The Israelite officers, that the
taskmasters put in charge over the people, were beaten and asked, Why havenít
you done your job in making brick yesterday and today like before? The
officers of the children of Israel went to Pharaoh and pleaded, Why are you
treating us this way? There is no straw given to us and the taskmasters
demand brick, then they beat us, but it is the fault of your own people.
But Pharaoh insisted that the people
didnít have enough to do if they had time to ask to go sacrifice to their
Lord. He sent them back to work and didnít give them straw, but required
the same amount of bricks.
The officers of the children of Israel
knew that there was trouble coming because their task was impossible now.
They met Moses and Aaron as they left talking to Pharaoh and they said, May
the Lord look on you and judge because you have made us to stink in the eyes
of Pharaoh and his servants to put a sword in their hand to kill us.

Moses felt bad for them and he said to
the Lord, Why have you done this to these people? Why have you sent me?
Ever since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has treated them
badly and you havenít saved your people at all.
So, just as God had warned Moses,
Pharaoh didnít listen and his heart was hardened. Moses had to expect
Pharaohís resistance but making bricks without straw was something Moses
knew simply couldnít be done and he didnít understand why God would let such
evil befall them when it was His plan to deliver them.
Find out how God replies to Moses and the next part of Godís plan to make
Pharaoh let His people go. Thatís our next story in Daily Bread.
