New King James Version
23 Now it happened (A)in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel (B)groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and (C)their cry came up to God because of the bondage. 24 So God (D)heard their groaning, and God (E)remembered His (F)covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 And God (G)looked upon the children of Israel, and God (H)acknowledged them.
Moses at the Burning Bush(I)
3 Now Moses was tending the flock of (J)Jethro his father-in-law, (K)the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to (L)Horeb, (M)the mountain of God. 2 And (N)the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. 3 Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this (O)great sight, why the bush does not burn.”
4 So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called (P)to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”
And he said, “Here I am.”
5 Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. (Q)Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” 6 Moreover He said, (R)“I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for (S)he was afraid to look upon God.
7 And the Lord said: (T)“I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry (U)because of their taskmasters, (V)for I know their [a]sorrows. 8 So (W)I have come down to (X)deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land (Y)to a good and large land, to a land (Z)flowing with milk and honey, to the place of (AA)the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites. 9 Now therefore, behold, (AB)the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the (AC)oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. 10 (AD)Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”
11 But Moses said to God, (AE)“Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
