God also said, "Tell them, 'The LORD, a the God of your ancestors -- the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob -- has sent me to you.' This will be my name forever; it has always been my name, and it will be used throughout all generations.
"Now go and call together all the leaders of Israel. Tell them, 'The LORD, the God of your ancestors -- the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob -- appeared to me in a burning bush. He said, "You can be sure that I am watching over you and have seen what is happening to you in Egypt.
I promise to rescue you from the oppression of the Egyptians. I will lead you to the land now occupied by the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites -- a land flowing with milk and honey."'
