Sh’mot (Exodus) 6:2—13
2G-d spoke to Moshe and said to him, “I am HaShem. 3I appeared to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov as El Shaddai, but with My Name HaShem I did not make Myself known to them. 4Moreover, I established My covenant with them to give the land of Canaan, the land of their sojourning, in which they sojourned. 5Moreover, I have heard the groan of the Children of Yisra’el whom Mitzrayim enslaves and I have remembered My covenant. 6Therefore, say to the Children of Yisra’el, ‘I am HaShem, and I shall take you out from under the burdens of Mitzrayim; I shall rescue you from their service; I shall redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7I shall take you to Me for a people and I shall be a G-d to you; and you shall know that I am HaShem your G-d, Who takes you out from the burdens of Mitzrayim. 8I shall bring you to the land about which I raised My hand to give it to Avraham, Yitschak, and Yaakov; and I shall give it to you as a heritage—I am HaShem.’ ”
9So Moshe spoke accordingly to the Children of Yisra’el; but they did not heed Moshe, because of shortness of breath and hard work.
10HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying, 11“Come speak to Pharaoh, king of Mitzrayim, that he send the Children of Yisra’el from his land.”
12Moshe spoke to HaShem, saying, “Behold, the Children of Yisra’el have not listened to me, so how will Pharaoh listen to me? And I have sealed lips!”
13HaShem spoke to Moshe and Aharon and commanded them regarding the Children of Yisra’el and regarding Pharaoh, king of Mitzrayim, to take the Children of Yisra’el out of the land of Mitzrayim.
