God Promises Deliverance

Exodus 6

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. For a with a strong hand he will let them go, and with a strong hand b he will drive them out of his land."

2 And God spoke to Moses and said to him: "I am 1 the LORD. 3 c "I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as d God Almighty, but by My name e LORD 2 I was not known to them. 4 f "I have also 3 established My covenant with them, g to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their 4 pilgrimage, h in which they were 5 strangers. 5 "And i I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. 6 "Therefore say to the children of Israel: j 'I am the LORD; k I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will l rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with 6 an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 'I will m take you as My people, and n I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God who brings you out o from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 'And I will bring you into the land which I p swore 7 to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the LORD.' " 9 So Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel; q but they did not heed Moses, because of r anguish 8 of spirit and cruel bondage.

10 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 11 "Go in, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the children of Israel go out of his land." 12 And Moses spoke before the LORD, saying, "The children of Israel have not heeded me. How then shall Pharaoh heed me, for s I am 9 of uncircumcised lips?" 13 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, and gave them a t command 10 for the children of Israel and for Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
