But Moses said to God, "Who am I,1 that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"
And God said, "I will be with you.2 And this will be the sign3 to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, youa will worship God on this mountain.4"
Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?'5 Then what shall I tell them?"
God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM.b This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM6 has sent me to you.' "
God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, 'The LORD,c the God of your fathers7--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob8--has sent me to you.' This is my name9 forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.10
