'And the LORD said unto Moses, 
.. "When thou goest to return into Egypt, 
.... see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, 
...... which I have put in thine hand: 
........ but I will harden his heart, 
.......... that he shall not let the people go."

And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, 
.. "Thus saith the LORD, 
.... Israel is my son, 
...... even my firstborn:
........ And I say unto thee, 
.......... Let my son go, 
............ that he may serve me: 
.............. and if thou refuse to let him go, 
................ behold, I will slay thy son, 
.................. even thy firstborn."'

(Exodus 4:21-23) 

Praise God!

'By faith Moses, when he was come to years, 
.. refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
.... Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, 
...... than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: 
.. for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
By faith he forsook Egypt, 
.. not fearing the wrath of the king: 
.... for he endured, 
...... as seeing Him who is invisible.'

(Hebrews 11:24-27)  

Praise God!

'For He (God) saith to Moses, 
.. "I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, 
.... and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

So then it is not of him that willeth, 
.. nor of him that runneth, 
.... but of God that sheweth mercy.
For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, 
.. "Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, 
.... that I might shew My power in thee, 
....... and that My Name might be declared throughout all the earth."

Therefore hath He mercy on whom He will have mercy, 
.. and whom He will He hardeneth.
Thou wilt say then unto me, 
.. "Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?"
Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? 
.. Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, 
.... "Why hast thou made me thus?"'

(Romans 9:15-20)

Praise His Holy Name!

'And it came to pass by the way in the inn, 
that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.
.. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, 
.... and cut off the foreskin of her son, 
...... and cast it at his feet, and said, 
........ "Surely a bloody husband art thou to me."
So He let him go: 
then she said, 
.. "A bloody husband thou art, 
.... because of the circumcision."

(Exodus 4:24-26)  

Praise God! For He is a Holy God. (Genesis 17:9-13)

"It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

And the LORD said to Aaron,

"Go into the wilderness to meet Moses."

And he went,

and met him in the mount of God,

and kissed him.

And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him,

and all the signs which he had commanded him.

And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:

And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto Moses,

and did the signs in the sight of the people.

And the people believed:

and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel,

and that he had looked upon their affliction,

then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

Exodus 4:27-31

Making Bricks Without Straw

And afterward Moses and Aaron went in,

and told Pharaoh,

"Thus saith the LORD God of Israel,

Let my people go,

that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness."

And Pharaoh said,

"Who is the LORD,

that I should obey his voice to let Israel go?

I know not the LORD,

neither will I let Israel go."

Exodus 5:1-2

And they [Moses and Aaron] said,

"The God of the Hebrews hath met with us:

let us go, we pray thee,

three days' journey into the desert,

and sacrifice unto the LORD our God;

lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword."

And the king of Egypt said unto them,

"Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron,

let the people from their works?

get you unto your burdens."

And Pharaoh said,

"Behold, the people of the land now are many,

and ye make them rest from their burdens."

And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people,

and their officers, saying,

"Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore:

let them go and gather straw for themselves.

And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore,

ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof:

for they be idle;

therefore they cry, saying,

Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

Let there more work be laid upon the men,

that they may labour therein;

and let them not regard vain words."

Exodus 5:3-9

10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

Exodus 5:10-14

The Cry of the Israelites

15So the Israelite foremen went and appealed to Pharaoh: “Why are you treating your servants this way? 16No straw has been given to your servants, yet we are told, ‘Make bricks!’ Look, your servants are being beaten, but the fault is with your own people.”

17“You are slackers,” Pharaoh replied. “Slackers! That is why you keep saying, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to the LORD.’ 18Now get to work. You will be given no straw, yet you must deliver the full quota of bricks.”

19The Israelite foremen realized they were in trouble when they were told, “You must not reduce your daily quota of bricks.” 20When they left Pharaoh, they confronted Moses and Aaron, who stood waiting to meet them.

21“May the LORD look upon you and judge you,” the foremen said, “for you have made us a stench before Pharaoh and his officials; you have placed in their hand a sword to kill us!”

22So Moses returned to the LORD and asked, “Lord, why have You brought trouble upon this people? Is this why You sent me? 23Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has brought trouble on this people, and You have not delivered Your people in any way.”

Exodus 5:15-22

God Promises Deliverance


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."

And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him,

"I am the LORD:

And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob,

by the name of

God Almighty,

but by my name


was I not known to them.

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.

And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel,

whom the Egyptians keep in bondage;

and I have remembered my covenant."

Exodus 6:1-5

"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:

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.

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 an heritage:

I am the LORD."

Exodus 6:6-8
