Now Moseskept the flock of Jethro his father in law , the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.2
And the angel of the LORDappeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked , and, behold, the bushburned with fire, and the bush was not consumed .
And Mosessaid , I will now turn aside , and see this greatsight,why the bush is not burnt .
And when the LORDsaw that he turned aside to see , Godcalled unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said , Moses,Moses. And he said , Here am I.
And he said , Draw not nighhither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the placewhereon thou standest is holyground.6
Moreover he said , I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moseshid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
