Moses Given Powers

1 Then Moses said, "What if they will not believe me or 1listen ato what I say? For they may say, '2The LORD has not appeared to you.' " 2 The LORD said to him, "What is that in your hand?" And he said, "3A staff." 3 Then He said, "Throw it on the ground." So he threw it on the ground, and 4it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. 4 But the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand and grasp it by its tail "-so he stretched out his hand and caught it, and it became a staff in his bhand - 5 "that 5they may believe that 6the LORD, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you." 6 The LORD furthermore said to him, "Now put your hand into your bosom." So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was 7leprous like snow. 7 Then He said, "Put your hand into your bosom again." So he put his hand into his bosom again, and when he took it out of his bosom, behold, 8it was restored like the rest of his flesh. 8 "If they will not believe you or cheed the dwitness of the first sign, they may believe the ewitness of the last sign. 9 "But if they will not believe even these two signs or heed what you say, then you shall take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground; and the water which you take from the Nile 9will become blood on the dry ground." 10 Then Moses said to the LORD, "Please, Lord, 10I have never been feloquent , neither grecently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am hslow of speech and islow of tongue." 11 The LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Or 11who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? 12 "Now then go, and 12I, even I, will be with your mouth, and 13teach you what you are to say." 13 But he said, "Please, Lord, now jsend the message by whomever You will."
