Exodus 6 - KJV

1 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for ch. 3:19with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand ch. 12:31,33,39shall he drive them out of his land.

2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am [a]the Lord:

3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of Gen. 17:1;& 35:11;& 48:3God Almighty, but by my name ch. 3:14;Ps. 83:18;John 8:58JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

4 Gen. 15:18And I have also established my covenant with them, Gen. 28:4to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

5 And ch. 2:24I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and ch. 3:17;Deut. 26:8I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will Deut. 7:8;1 Chr. 17:21redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

7 And I will Deut. 4:20;2 Sam. 7:24take you to me for a people, and ch. 29:45,46;Rev. 21:7I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out ch. 5:4,5from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did Gen. 15:18;& 26:3[b]swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the Lord.

9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: ch. 5:21but they hearkened not unto Moses for [c]anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

10 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

12 And Moses spake before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, ver. 30;ch. 4:10;Jer. 1:6who am of uncircumcised lips?

13 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
