Commentary on
The Book of Jasher
Chapter 81:1-10.

LXXXI:1  And the children of Israel journeyed from Raamses to Succoth, about six hundred
          thousand men on foot, besides the little ones and their wives.
LXXXI:2  Also a mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and herds, even much cattle.
LXXXI:3  And the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in the land of Egypt in hard
          labor, was two hundred and ten years.
LXXXI:4  And at the end of the two hundred and ten years,
Yehuveh brought forth the
          children of Israel from Egypt with a strong hand.
LXXXI:5  And the children of Israel traveled from Egypt and from Goshen and from Raamses,
          and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.
LXXXI:6  And the Egyptians buried all their first born whom Yehuveh had smitten, and all
          the Egyptians buried their slain for three days.
LXXXI:7  And the children of Israel traveled from Succoth and encamped in Ethom, at the end
          of the wilderness.
LXXXI:8  And on the third day after the Egyptians had buried their first born, many men rose
          up from Egypt and went after Israel to make them return to Egypt, for they repented
          that they had sent the Israelites away from their servitude.
LXXXI:9  And one man said to his neighbor, Surely Moses and Aaron spoke to Pharaoh, saying,
          We will go a three daysí journey in the wilderness and sacrifice to Yehuveh our Elohim.
LXXXI:10  Now therefore let us rise up early in the morning and cause them to return, and it
          shall be that if they return with us to Egypt to their masters, then shall we know that
          there is faith in them, but if they will not return, then will we fight with them, and
          make them come back with great power and a strong hand.
