1Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh. You will see this, for he will let them go because of my strong hand. Because of my strong hand, he will drive them out of his land.”
2God spoke to Moses and said to him, “I am Yahweh.
3I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as God Almighty; but by my name, Yahweh, I was not known to them.
4I also established my covenant with them, in order to give them the land of Canaan, the land where they lived as non-citizens, the land in which they wandered about.
5Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the Israelites whom the Egyptians have enslaved, and I have called to mind my covenant.
6Therefore, say to the Israelites, 'I am Yahweh. I will bring you out from slavery under the Egyptians, and I will free you from their power. I will rescue you with a display of my power, and with mighty acts of judgment.
7I will take you to myself as my people, and I will be your God. You will know that I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out from slavery under the Egyptians.
8I will bring you into the land that I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am Yahweh.'”
9When Moses told this to the Israelites, they would not listen to him because of their discouragement about their harsh slavery.
10Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
11“Go tell Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to let the people of Israel go from his land.”
12Moses said to Yahweh, “If the Israelites have not listened to me, why will Pharaoh listen to me, since I am not good at speaking?”
13Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron. He gave them a command for the Israelites and for Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to bring the Israelites out of the land of Egypt.

28When Yahweh spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,
29he said to him, “I am Yahweh. Say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, everything that I will tell you.”
30But Moses said to Yahweh, “I am not good at speaking, so why will Pharaoh listen to me?”
