and Pharaoh was flung from his throne. Judah's cries
were heard at a great distance, as far off as Succoth.
When Pharaoh learnt the reason of the mighty uproar, he
sent word to Joseph that he would have to concede the demands
of the Hebrews, else the land would suffer destruction.
"Thou canst take thy choice," were the words of
Pharaoh, "between me and the Hebrews, between Egypt
and the land of the Hebrews. If thou wilt not heed my command,
then leave me and go with them into their land."
