6 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh; for [a]under compulsion he will let them go, and [b]under compulsion he will drive them out of his land.”
2 God spoke further to Moses and said to him, “I am the Lord;3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as [c]God Almighty, but byMy name, [d]Lord, I did not make Myself known to them.4 I also established My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the [e]land in which they sojourned.5 Furthermore I have heard 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, ‘I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.7 Then I will take you [f]for My people, and I will be [g]your God; and you 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 I [h]swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you for a possession; I am the Lord.’”9 So Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses on account of their[i]despondency and cruel bondage.
10 Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,11 “Go, [j]tell Pharaoh king of Egypt [k]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; how then will Pharaoh listen to me, for I am [l]unskilled 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.
