And when we cried unto the Lord our God
As they did by reason of their hard bondage, ( Exodus 2:23 ) ;
and the Lord heard our voice, and looked upon our affliction, and our
labour, and our oppression;
with a look of pity and compassion, heard their cries, answered their petitions, and sent them a deliverer, ( Exodus 2:25 ) ( Exodus 3:7 Exodus 3:8 ) .
