Exodus 6:1-13

God Promises Action

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh; for 1under compulsion * he will let them go, and under compulsion * he will drive them out of his land."
2 God spoke further to Moses and said to him, "I am 2the LORD;
3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as 3God Almighty, but by 4My name, LORD, I did not make Myself known to them.
4 "I also established 5My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land in which they sojourned.
5 "Furthermore I have 6heard the groaning of the sons of Israel, because the Egyptians are holding them in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant.
6 "Say, therefore, to the sons of Israel, '7I am the LORD, and 8I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also 9redeem you with 10an outstretched arm and with great judgments.
7 'Then I will take you 11for My people, and 12I will be your God; and 13you shall know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
8 'I will bring you to the land which 14I swore * to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and 15I will give it to you for a possession; 16I am the LORD.' "
9 So Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses on 17account of their despondency * and cruel bondage.
10 Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
11 "18Go, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the sons of Israel go out of his land."
12 But Moses spoke before the LORD, saying, "Behold, the sons of Israel have not listened to me; 19how then will Pharaoh listen to me, for I am 20unskilled in speech?"
13 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and gave them a charge to the sons of Israel and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
