“Tamarack, you're my most trusted servant. I'm going abroad to do business. You're in charge of my house and everything in it while I'm away.” said the rich Egyptian.
He gathered many valuable goods and many of his slaves and traveled to foreign lands. On return, after much time, he passed a multitude leaving Egypt, like fellow merchants carrying the wealth of a nation. When he arrived, however, people reported strange things and that Pharaoh himself was dead! The whole nation, including himself, had been stripped bare and the people's workers were gone.
“Tamarack! You had one job!”
