The Second Book of Moses, Called
Exodus
6

1  Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
2  ¶ And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:
3  and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty; Ex. 3.13-15 but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
4  And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.
5  And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.
6  Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, 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 a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
8  And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for a heritage: I am the LORD.
9  And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
10  ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
11  Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.
12  And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?
13  And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
14  ¶ These be the heads of their fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these be the families of Reuben.
15  And the sons of Simeon; Jem'u-el, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Sha'ul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the families of Simeon.
16  And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Mera'ri: and the years of the life of Levi were a hundred thirty and seven years.
17  The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.
18  And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uz'zi-el: and the years of the life of Kohath were a hundred thirty and three years.
19  And the sons of Mera'ri; Ma'hali and Mushi: these are the families of Levi according to their generations. 1 Chr. 6.16-19
20  And Amram took him Joch'ebed his father's sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty and seven years.
21  And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
22  And the sons of Uz'zi-el; Mish'a-el, and Elza'phan, and Zithri.
23  And Aaron took him Elish'eba, daughter of Ammin'adab, sister of Naa'shon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab and Abi'hu, Ele-a'zar and Ith'amar.
24  And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elka'nah, and Abi'asaph: these are the families of the Korhites.
25  And Ele-a'zar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Pu'ti-el to wife; and she bare him Phin'ehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.
26  ¶ These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.
27  These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.
28  ¶ And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt,
29  that the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.
30  And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
