1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh; for Iaunder compulsion he will let them go, and Iunder compulsion he will drive them out of his land.”

2 ¶ God spoke further to Moses and said to him, “I am athe LORD; 3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as IaGod Almighty, but [by] bMy name, IILORD, I did not make Myself known to them. 4 I also established aMy covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the Iland in which they sojourned. 5 Furthermore I have aheard 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, ‘aI am the LORD, and bI will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also credeem you with dan outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 Then I will take you Iafor My people, and bI will be IIyour God; and cyou 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 aI Iswore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and bI will give it to you [for] a possession; cI am the LORD.’” 9 So Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses on aaccount of [their] Idespondency and cruel bondage.

God reneweth his promise by his name JEHOVAH.

1 ¶ Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. 2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I [am] the LORD: 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by [the name of] God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. 4 And I have also established my 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, 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 I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: 7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I [am] the LORD.
