Exodus 6:1-7 MSG

1 God said to Moses, "Now you'll see what I'll do to Pharaoh: With a strong hand he'll send them out free; with a strong hand he'll drive them out of his land."
2 God continued speaking to Moses, reassuring him, "I am God.
3 I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as The Strong God, but by my name God (I-Am-Present) I was not known to them.
4 I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, the country in which they lived as sojourners.
5 But now I've heard the groanings of the Israelites whom the Egyptians continue to enslave and I've remembered my covenant.
6 Therefore tell the Israelites:
7 I'll take you as my own people and I'll be God to you. You'll know that I am God, your God who brings you out from under the cruel hard labor of Egypt.
