After Moses and Aaron spoke to the people and got them on board with God’s plan to rescue them, they went to Pharaoh. Baby steps. All they wanted at first was three days off for the people to go into the desert and hold a feast to the LORD. Not only did Pharaoh tell them no, he punished the Hebrews for even trying to get three days off by telling his taskmasters not to deliver straw to the Hebrews for their bricks. From that day forward, the Hebrews were to gather their own straw for their bricks, but they were also required to deliver the same number of bricks every day that they did when the straw was given to them.

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

The Hebrews complained to Moses, and Moses complained to God that so far his mission had only made things worse for the Israelites, and God hadn’t delivered the people from slavery at all.

God answered that he was the God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, though they did not know him as YHWH but as God Almighty. And he remembered his covenant with them to make of them a great nation in the land of Canaan, and the time was come for God to take the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt and lead them to that promised land.

“And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”
