1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, "Now shalt thou see what I will do unto Pharaoh, for with a mighty hand shall he let them go, and with a mighty hand shall he drive them out of his land."
2 And God spake unto Moses, saying unto him, "I am the LORD, 3 and I appeared unto Abraham, Isaac and Jacob an Almighty God: but in my name Jehovah was I not known unto them. 4 Moreover, I made an covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan: the land of their pilgrimage wherein they were strangers. 5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, because the Egyptians keep them in bondage, and have remembered my covenant.
6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, 'I am the LORD, and will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and will rid you out of their bondage, and will deliver you with a stretched-out arm and with great judgments. 7 And I will take you for my people and will be to you a God. And ye shall know that I am the LORD your God which brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 And I will bring you unto the land over the which I did lift up my hand to give it unto Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and will give it unto you for a possession: even I the LORD.'" 9 And Moses told the children of Israel even so: But they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit and for cruel bondage.
10 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 11 "Go and bid 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 hearken not unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, seeing that I have uncircumcised lips?" 13 And the LORD spake unto Moses and 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.

26 These are that Aaron and Moses to whom the LORD said, "Carry the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, with their armies." 27 These are that Moses and Aaron which spake to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, that they might bring the children of Israel out of Egypt.
28 And in the day when the LORD spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 he spake unto him saying, "I am the LORD, see that thou speak unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt all that I say unto thee."
