The Burning Bush

1 Now Moses was pasturing the flock of Jethro R52 his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the west F45 side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, R53 the mountain R54 of God. 2 The R55 angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a F46 bush; R56 and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed. 3 So Moses said, "I R57 F47 must turn aside now and see this marvelous F48 sight, why the bush is not burned up." 4 When the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God R58 called to him from the midst of the bush and said, "Moses, Moses!" And he said, "Here I am." 5 Then He said, "Do not come near here; remove R59 your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground." 6 He said also, "I R60 am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." Then R61 Moses hid his face, for he was afraid R62 to look at God.

7 The LORD said, "I have surely seen R63 the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings. 8 "So I have come down to R64 deliver them from the power F49 of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good R65 and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the R66 Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. 9 "Now, behold, the R67 cry of the sons of Israel has come to Me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them.

The Mission of Moses

10 "Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so R68 that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt." 11 But Moses said to God, "Who R69 am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?" 12 And He said, "Certainly I R70 will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when R71 you have brought the people out of Egypt, you R72 shall worship F50 God at this mountain."

13 Then Moses said to God, "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, `The God of your fathers has sent me to you.' Now they may say to me, `What is His name?' What shall I say to them?" 14 God said to Moses, "I R73 F51 AM WHO I F51 AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, `I F51 AM has sent me to you.' " 15 God, furthermore, said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, `The R74 LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name R75 to F52 all generations. 16 "Go and gather R76 the elders of Israel together and say to them, `The R77 LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, "I R78 F53 am indeed concerned about you and what has been done to you in Egypt. 17 "So I R79 said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the R80 Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, to a land flowing R81 with milk and honey."' 18 "They R82 will pay F54 heed to what you say; and you R83 with the elders of Israel will come to the king of Egypt and you will say to him, `The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. So now, please, let us go a three R84 days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.' 19 "But I know that the king of Egypt will R85 not permit you to go, except R86 under F55 compulsion. 20 "So I will stretch out My R87 hand and strike Egypt with all My miracles R88 which I shall do in the midst of it; and after R89 that he will let you go. 21 "I will grant this people favor R90 in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be that when you go, you will not go empty-handed. 22 "But every woman shall R91 ask of her neighbor and the woman who lives in her house, articles of silver and articles of gold, and clothing; and you will put them on your sons and daughters. Thus you will plunder R92 the Egyptians."
