Bible: Exodus 6:1-9

6:1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, 1  for compelled by my strong hand 2  he will release them, and by my strong hand he will drive them out of his land.” 3 

6:2 God spoke 4  to Moses and said to him, “I am the Lord. 5  6:3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as 6  God Almighty, 7  but by 8  my name ‘the Lord 9  I was not known to them. 10  6:4 I also established my covenant with them 11  to give them the land of Canaan, where they were living as resident foreigners. 12  6:5 I 13  have also heard 14  the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, 15  and I have remembered my covenant. 16  6:6 Therefore, tell the Israelites, ‘I am the Lord. I will bring you out 17  from your enslavement to 18  the Egyptians, I will rescue you from the hard labor they impose, 19  and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 6:7 I will take you to myself for a people, and I will be your God. 20  Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from your enslavement to 21  the Egyptians. 6:8 I will bring you to the land I swore to give 22  to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob – and I will give it to you 23  as a possession. I am the Lord!’

6:9 24 

Moses told this 25  to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him 26  because of their discouragement 27  and hard labor.
