Now there arose; And the children of Israel (from Israel in Egypt) (Exodus 1:8,11,13; 2:23) – George Frideric Handel
8 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.
