Bible: Exodus 1:11-14

1:11 So they put foremen 1  over the Israelites 2  to oppress 3  them with hard labor. As a result 4  they built Pithom and Rameses 5  as store cities for Pharaoh. 1:12 But the more the Egyptians 6  oppressed them, the more they multiplied and spread. 7  As a result the Egyptians loathed 8  the Israelites, 1:13 and they 9  made the Israelites serve rigorously. 10  1:14 They made their lives bitter 11  by 12  hard service with mortar and bricks and by all kinds of service 13  in the fields. Every kind of service the Israelites were required to give was rigorous. 14
