Exodus 1:9-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

He said to his people, “See! The Israelite people have multiplied and become more numerous than we are! 10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them to stop their increase;[a] otherwise, in time of war they too may join our enemies to fight against us, and so leave the land.”


  1. 1:10 Increase: Pharaoh’s actions thereby immediately pit him against God’s will for the Israelites to multiply; see note on v. 7 above.
