God Promises Deliverance

1Then the Lord sayd vnto Moses, Nowe shalt thou see, what I will doe vnto Pharaoh: for by a strong hand shall he let them goe, and euen be constrained to driue them out of his land.

2Moreouer God spake vnto Moses, and sayd vnto him, I am the Lord, 3And I appeared vnto Abraha, to Izhak, & to Iaakob by the Name of Almightie God: but by my Name Iehouah was I not knowen vnto the. 4Furthermore as I made my couenant with them to giue them ye land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers: 5So I haue also hearde the groning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keepe in bondage, and haue remembred my couenant. 6Wherefore say thou vnto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out fro the burdens of the Egyptians, & will deliuer you out of their bondage, and will redeeme you in a stretched out arme, and in great iudgements. 7Also I will take you for my people, & will be your God: then ye shall knowe that I the Lord your God bring you out from the burdens of the Egyptians. 8And I will bring you into the land which I sware that I woulde giue to Abraham, to Izhak, and to Iaakob, and I will giue it vnto you for a possession: I am the Lord. 9So Moses told the children of Israel thus: but they hearkened not vnto Moses, for anguish of spirit and for cruel bondage.

10Then the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, 11Go speak to Pharaoh King of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel goe out of his land. 12But Moses spake before the Lorde, saying, Beholde, the children of Israel hearken not vnto me, howe then shall Pharaoh heare mee, which am of vncircumcised lippes?

13Then the Lord spake vnto Moses & vnto Aaron, & charged them to goe to the children of Israel & to Pharaoh King of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the lande of Egypt.

26These are Aaron and Moses to whom the Lord said, Bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, according to their armies. 27These are that Moses and Aaron, which spake to Pharaoh King of Egypt, that they might bring the children of Israel out of Egypt.

28And at that time when the Lorde spake vnto Moses in the land of Egypt, 29When the Lorde, I say, spake vnto Moses, saying, I am the Lord, speake thou vnto Pharaoh the King of Egypt all that I say vnto thee, 30Then Moses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of vncircumcised lippes, & how shall Pharaoh heare me?
