But the LORD said to Moses, "Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh; for with a strong hand he will send them out, and with 1a strong hand he will 2drive them out of his land."
God spoke to Moses and said to him, 3"I am the LORD.
I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as 4God Almighty,a but by my name the 5LORD I did not make myself known to them.
46I also established my covenant with them 7to give them the land of Canaan, the land in which they lived as sojourners.
Moreover, 8I have heard the groaning of the people of Israel whom the Egyptians hold as slaves, and I have remembered my covenant.
Say therefore to the people of Israel, 9'I am the LORD, and 10I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from slavery to them, and 11I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment.
