||The administrators and foremen went out and told the people, 'Pharaoh has said that he will no longer give you straw.
Vayetse'u nogsey ha'am veshoterav vayomru el-ha'am lemor koh amar Par'oh eyneni noten lachem teven.
||You must go and get your own straw wherever you can find it. Meanwhile, you may not reduce the amount of work you must complete.'
Atem lechu kchu lachem teven me'asher timtsa'u ki eyn nigra me'avodatchem davar.
||The people spread out all over Egypt to gather grain stalks for straw.
Vayafets ha'am bechol-erets Mitsrayim lekoshesh kash lateven.
