Studie

1 And Jehovah said to Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh; for by a firm hand shall he send· them ·away, and by a firm hand shall he drive· them ·out of his land.

2 And God spoke to Moses, and said to him, I am Jehovah.

3 And was seen by Abraham, by Isaac, and by Jacob, in God Shaddai; and by my name Jehovah I was· not ·known to them*.

4 And I also raised·​·up My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their sojournings, in which they sojourned.

5 And I have also heard the groaning of the sons of Israel, whom the Egyptians make to serve; and I have remembered My covenant.

6 Therefore say to the sons of Israel, I am Jehovah, and I will cause you to go·​·out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rescue you from their servitude; 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 for God, and you shall·​·know that I am Jehovah your God, who leads you out from under the burdens of Egypt.

8 And I will bring you to the land where I lifted up my hand to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, and I will give it to you for a possession; I am Jehovah.
