Exodus 33:1-2 New English Translation (NET Bible)

33 The Lord said to Moses, “Go up[a] from here, you and the people whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land I promised on oath[b] to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’[c] I will send an angel[d] before you, and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.[e]

  2. Exodus 33:1 tn Or “the land which I swore.”
  3. Exodus 33:1 tn Heb “seed.”
  4. Exodus 33:2 sn This seems not to be the same as the Angel of the Presence introduced before.
  5. Exodus 33:2 sn See T. Ishida, “The Structure and Historical Implications of Lists of Pre-Israelite Nations,” Bib (1979): 461-90.
