God Promises Deliverance

1The LORDE sayde vnto Moses: Now shalt thou se, what I will do vnto Pharao, for thorow a mightie hande must he let them go, thorow a mightie hande must he dryue them from him out of his londe.

2And God spake vnto Moses, & sayde vnto him: I am ye LORDE, 3& I appeared vnto Abraham, Isaac & Iacob, an Allmightie God: but my name, LORDE, haue I not shewed vnto them: 4My couenaunt also haue I made with them, that I wil geue them the londe of Canaan, the londe of their pilgremage, wherin they haue bene straungers. 5Morouer I haue herde the complaynte of the children of Israel, whom ye Egipcians oppresse with laboure, and haue remembred my couenaunt. 6Therfore saye vnto the childre of Israel: I am the LORDE, & wil brynge you out from yor burthens in Egipte, & wil rydd you from youre laboure, and wil delyuer you thorow a stretched out arme & greate iudgmetes, 7and will receaue you for my people, & will be yor God: so that ye shal knowe, that I the LORDE am yor God, which brynge you out from the burthen of Egipte, 8and will brynge you into the lande, ouer the which I haue lift vp my hande, to geue it vnto Abraham, Isaac and Iacob, ye same wil I geue vnto you for a possession. I the LORDE. 9Moses tolde this vnto the childre of Israel. But they herkened not vnto him, for very anguysh of sprete, & for sore laboure.

10The spake the LORDE vnto Moses, & sayde: 11Go thy waye, & speake vnto Pharao the kynge of Egypte, yt he let the childre of Israel go out of his lande. 12But Moses spake before ye LORDE, & saide: Beholde, ye childre of Israel herke not vnto me, how shulde Pharao the heare me? And I am also of vncircumcised lyppes.

13So the LORDE spake vnto Moses & Aaron, & gaue the a commaundemet vnto the childre of Israel, & vnto Pharao the kynge of Egipte, yt they shulde brynge the childre of Israel out of Egipte.
