"Therefore, say to the Israelites: 'I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.1 I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem2 you with an outstretched arm3 and with mighty acts of judgment.47
I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God.5 Then you will know6 that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
And I will bring you to the land7 I swore8 with uplifted hand9 to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob.10 I will give it to you as a possession. I am the LORD.' "11
