‘I am the LORD. I will take you out from under the burdens of Egypt…The word for “burdens” in Hebrew is sivlot, and is related to the word svalanut which means patience. Tolerance is a fantastic character trait but sometimes we learn to tolerate the intolerable. God was promising not only to take us out of the “burdens” of Egypt but also to take us out from under our tolerance of an intolerable solution, for this too we needed Divine intervention.
