Exodus 1:8,11,13; 2:23

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

“Now there arose,” “And the children of Israel” (from Israel in Egypt), composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and premiered in London on April 4, 1739

Psalm 114:1-8 [German]

When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.

The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.

What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?

Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?

Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalm 114, “When Israel out of Egypt came,” for double chorus and orchestra, op. 51 (premiered 1840, published 1841), composed by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847)
