5:7 'Do not give the people straw for bricks as before. Let them go and gather their own straw.
Lo tosifun latet teven la'am lilbon halevenim kitmol shilshom hem yelchu vekosheshu lahem teven.



Commentary:

straw for bricks
  Unbaked mud bricks were used, and these had to be held together with straw. Such bricks can still be found.
