I am the LORD your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you walk upright.
Read Chapter 26
George Leo Haydock
Upright; and be no longer bowed down with a heavy yoke, like oxen. "I have broken the locks of your prison, and have set you at liberty "Arabic. (Calmet)
A Greek proverb says, "Never was a slave's head right, but always crooked, like his neck. "(Menochius)
