Exodus 4

LXX 1 And Moses answered and said, If they believe me not, and do not hearken to my voice (for they will say, God has not appeared to thee), what shall I say to them? NIV 1 Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The LORD did not appear to you’?” LXX 2 And the Lord said to him, What is this thing that is in thine hand? and he said, A rod. NIV 2 Then the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he replied. LXX 3 And he said, Cast it on the ground: and he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent, and Moses fled from it. NIV 3 The LORD said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it. LXX 4 And the Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth thine hand, and take hold of its tail: so he stretched forth his hand and took hold of the tail, NIV 4 Then the LORD said to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. LXX 5 and it became a rod in his hand, —that they may believe thee, that the God of thy fathers has appeared to thee, the God of Abraam, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob. NIV 5 “This,” said the LORD, “is so that they may believe that the LORD, the God of their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared to you.” LXX 6 And the Lord said again to him, Put thine hand into thy bosom; and he put his hand into his bosom, and brought his hand out of his bosom, and his hand became as snow. NIV 6 Then the LORD said, “Put your hand inside your cloak.” So Moses put his hand into his cloak, and when he took it out, the skin was leprous —it had become as white as snow. LXX 7 And he said again, Put thy hand into thy bosom; and he put his hand into his bosom, and brought his hand out of his bosom, and it was again restored to the complexion of his flesh. NIV 7 “Now put it back into your cloak,” he said. So Moses put his hand back into his cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored, like the rest of his flesh. LXX 8 And if they will not believe thee, nor hearken to the voice of the first sign, they will believe thee of the voice of the second sign. NIV 8 Then the LORD said, “If they do not believe you or pay attention to the first sign, they may believe the second. LXX 9 And it shall come to pass if they will not believe thee for these two signs, and will not hearken to thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river and pour it upon the dry land, and the water which thou shalt take from the river shall be blood upon the dry land. NIV 9 But if they do not believe these two signs or listen to you, take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground. The water you take from the river will become blood on the ground.” LXX 10 And Moses said to the Lord, I pray, Lord, I have not been sufficient in former times, neither from the time that thou hast begun to speak to thy servant: I am weak in speech, and slow-tongued. NIV 10 Moses said to the LORD, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” LXX 11 And the Lord said to Moses, Who has given a mouth to man, and who has made the very hard of hearing, and the deaf, the seeing and the blind? have not I, God? NIV 11 The LORD said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD? LXX 12 And now go and I will open thy mouth, and will instruct thee in what thou shalt say. NIV 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” LXX 13 And Moses said, I pray thee, Lord, appoint another able whom thou shalt send. NIV 13 But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.” LXX 14 And the Lord was greatly angered against Moses, and said, Lo! is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he will surely speak to thee; and, behold, he will come forth to meet thee, and beholding thee he will rejoice within himself. NIV 14 Then the LORD’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. LXX 15 And thou shalt speak to him; and thou shalt put my words into his mouth, and I will open thy mouth and his mouth, and I will instruct you in what ye shall do. NIV 15 You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. LXX 16 And he shall speak for thee to the people, and he shall be thy mouth, and thou shalt be for him in things pertaining to God. NIV 16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. LXX 17 And this rod that was turned into a serpent thou shalt take in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt work miracles. NIV 17 But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.” LXX 18 And Moses went and returned to Jothor his father-in-law, and says, I will go and return to my brethren in Egypt, and will see if they are yet living. And Jothor said to Moses, Go in health. And in those days after some time, the king of Egypt died. NIV 18 Then Moses went back to Jethro his father-in-law and said to him, “Let me return to my own people in Egypt to see if any of them are still alive.” Jethro said, “Go, and I wish you well.” LXX 19 And the Lord said to Moses in Madiam, Go, depart into Egypt, for all that sought thy life are dead. NIV 19 Now the LORD had said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all those who wanted to kill you are dead.” LXX 20 And Moses took his wife and his children, and mounted them on the beasts, and returned to Egypt; and Moses took the rod from God in his hand. NIV 20 So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand. LXX 21 And the Lord said to Moses, When thou goest and returnest to Egypt, see—all the miracles I have put into thine hands. charged thee with, thou shalt work before Pharao: and I will harden his heart, and he shall certainly not send away the people. NIV 21 The LORD said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. LXX 22 And thou shalt say to Pharao, These things saith the Lord, Israel my first-born. NIV 22 Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son, LXX 23 And I said to thee, Send away my people, that they may serve me: now if thou wilt not send them away, see, I will slay thy first-born son. NIV 23 and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’ ” LXX 24 And it came to pass the angel of the Lord met him by the way in the inn, and sought to slay him. NIV 24 At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him. LXX 25 and Sepphora having taken a stone cut off the foreskin of her son, and fell at his feet and said, The blood of the circumcision of my son is staunched: NIV 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it. “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. LXX 26 and he departed from him, because she said, The blood of the circumcision of my son is staunched. NIV 26 So the LORD let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.) LXX 27 And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses; and he went and met him in the mount of God, and they kissed each other. NIV 27 The LORD said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him. LXX 28 And Moses reported to Aaron all the words of the Lord, which he sent, and all the things which he charged him. NIV 28 Then Moses told Aaron everything the LORD had sent him to say, and also about all the signs he had commanded him to perform. LXX 29 And Moses and Aaron went and gathered the elders of the children of Israel. NIV 29 Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites, LXX 30 And Aaron spoke all these words, which God spoke to Moses, and wrought the miracles before the people. NIV 30 and Aaron told them everything the LORD had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, LXX 31 and the people believed and rejoiced, because God visited the children of Israel, and because he saw their affliction: and the people bowed and worshipped. NIV 31 and they believed. And when they heard that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
