Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro1 his father-in-law, the priest of Midian,2 and he led the flock to the far side of the desert and came to Horeb,3 the mountain4 of God.
There the angel of the LORD5 appeared to him in flames of fire6 from within a bush.7 Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.
So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight--why the bush does not burn up."
When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called8 to him from within the bush,9 "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am."10
