Context Readings

Israel And Oppression In Egypt

9 He told his people, "Look, the Israeli people are more numerous and more powerful than we are. 10 Come on, let's be careful how we treat them, so that when they grow numerous, if a war breaks out they won't join our enemies, fight against us, and leave our land." 11 So the Egyptians placed supervisors over them, oppressing them with heavy burdens. The Israelis built the supply cities of Pithom and Rameses for Pharaoh.
