1 H4872 And Moses H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said, H539 [H8686] But, behold, they will not believe H8085 [H8799] me, nor hearken H6963 to my voice: H559 [H8799] for they will say, H3068 The LORD H7200 [H8738] hath not appeared to thee.
2 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H3027 to him, What is that in thine hand? H559 [H8799] And he said, H4294 A rod.
3 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7993 [H8685] Cast H776 it on the earth. H7993 [H8686] And he cast H776 it on the earth, H5175 and it became a serpent; H4872 and Moses H5127 [H8799] fled H6440 from the face of it.
4 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H4872 to Moses, H7971 [H8798] Put forth H3027 thine hand, H270 [H8798] and take H2180 it by the tail. H7971 [H8799] And he put forth H3027 his hand, H2388 [H8686] and caught H4294 it, and it became a rod H3709 in his palm:
5 H539 [H8686] That they may believe H3068 that the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers, H430 the God H85 of Abraham, H430 the God H3327 of Isaac, H430 and the God H3290 of Jacob, H7200 [H8738] hath appeared to thee.
6 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H5750 furthermore H935 [H8685] to him, Put H3027 now thine hand H2436 into thy bosom. H935 [H8686] And he put H3027 his hand H2436 into his bosom: H3318 [H8686] and when he took H3027 it out, behold, his hand H6879 [H8794] was leprous H7950 as snow.
7 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7725 0 Put H3027 thine hand H2436 into thy bosom H7725 [H8685] again. H7725 0 And he put H3027 his hand H2436 into his bosom H7725 [H8686] again; H3318 [H8686] and drew H2436 it out of his bosom, H7725 [H8804] and, behold, it was turned again H1320 as his other flesh.
8 H539 [H8686] And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe H8085 [H8799] thee, neither hearken H6963 to the voice H7223 of the first H226 sign, H539 [H8689] that they will believe H6963 the voice H314 of the latter H226 sign.
9 H539 [H8686] And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe H8147 also these two H226 signs, H8085 [H8799] neither hearken H6963 to thy voice, H3947 [H8804] that thou shalt take H4325 of the water H2975 of the river, H8210 [H8804] and pour H3004 it upon the dry H4325 land: and the water H3947 [H8799] which thou takest H2975 out of the river H1818 shall become blood H3006 upon the dry land.
10 H4872 And Moses H559 [H8799] said H3068 to the LORD, H994 O H136 my Lord, H376 I H1697 am not eloquent, H8032 H8543 neither ereyesterday, H227 nor since H1696 [H8763] thou hast spoken H5650 to thy servant: H3515 but I am slow H6310 of speech, H3515 and of a slow H3956 tongue.
11 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7760 [H8804] to him, Who hath made H120 man's H6310 mouth? H7760 [H8799] or who maketh H483 the dumb, H2795 or deaf, H6493 or the seeing, H5787 or the blind? H3068 have not I the LORD?
12 H3212 [H8798] Now therefore go, H6310 and I will be with thy mouth, H3384 [H8689] and teach H1696 [H8762] thee what thou shalt say.
13 H559 [H8799] And he said, H994 O H136 my Lord, H7971 [H8798] send, H3027 I pray thee, by the hand H7971 [H8799] of him whom thou wilt send.
14 H639 And the anger H3068 of the LORD H2734 [H8799] was kindled H4872 against Moses, H559 [H8799] and he said, H175 Is not Aaron H3881 the Levite H251 thy brother? H3045 [H8804] I know H1696 [H8762] that he can speak H1696 [H8763] well. H3318 [H8802] And also, behold, he cometh forth H7125 [H8800] to meet H7200 [H8804] thee: and when he seeth H8055 [H8804] thee, he will be glad H3820 in his heart.
15 H1696 [H8765] And thou shalt speak H7760 [H8804] to him, and put H1697 words H6310 in his mouth: H6310 and I will be with thy mouth, H6310 and with his mouth, H3384 [H8689] and will teach H6213 [H8799] you what ye shall do.
16 H1696 [H8765] And he shall speak for thee H5971 to the people: H6310 and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, H430 and thou shalt be to him instead of God.
17 H3947 [H8799] And thou shalt take H4294 this rod H3027 in thine hand, H6213 [H8799] with which thou shalt perform H226 signs.
18 H4872 And Moses H3212 [H8799] went H7725 [H8799] and returned H3500 to Jethro H2859 [H8802] his father in law, H559 [H8799] and said H3212 [H8799] to him, Let me go, H7725 [H8799] I pray thee, and return H251 to my brethren H4714 who are in Egypt, H7200 [H8799] and see H5750 whether they are yet H2416 alive. H3503 And Jethro H559 [H8799] said H4872 to Moses, H3212 [H8798] Go H7965 in peace.
19 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H4872 to Moses H4080 in Midian, H3212 [H8798] Go, H7725 [H8798] return H4714 into Egypt: H582 for all the men H4191 [H8804] are dead H1245 [H8764] who sought H5315 thy life.
20 H4872 And Moses H3947 [H8799] took H802 his wife H1121 and his sons, H7392 [H8686] and set H2543 them upon a donkey, H7725 [H8799] and he returned H776 to the land H4714 of Egypt: H4872 and Moses H3947 [H8799] took H4294 the rod H430 of God H3027 in his hand.
21 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H4872 to Moses, H3212 [H8800] When thou goest H7725 [H8800] to return H4714 into Egypt, H7200 [H8798] see H6213 [H8804] that thou perform H4159 all those wonders H6440 at the face of H6547 Pharaoh, H7760 [H8804] which I have put H3027 in thine hand: H2388 [H8762] but I will harden H3820 his heart, H5971 that he shall not let the people H7971 [H8762] go.
22 H559 [H8804] And thou shalt say H6547 to Pharaoh, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H3478 Israel H1121 is my son, H1060 even my firstborn:
23 H559 [H8799] And I say H1121 to thee, Let my son H7971 [H8761] go, H5647 [H8799] that he may serve H3985 [H8762] me: and if thou shalt refuse H7971 [H8763] to let him go, H2026 [H8802] behold, I will slay H1121 thy son, H1060 even thy firstborn.
24 H1870 And it came to pass by the way H4411 in the inn, H3068 that the LORD H6298 [H8799] met H1245 [H8762] him, and sought H4191 [H8687] to kill him.
25 H6855 Then Zipporah H3947 [H8799] took H6864 a sharp stone, H3772 [H8799] and cut off H6190 the foreskin H1121 of her son, H5060 [H8686] and cast H7272 it at his feet, H559 [H8799] and said, H1818 Surely a bloody H2860 husband art thou to me.
26 H7503 [H8799] So he let him go: H559 [H8804] then she said, H1818 A bloody H2860 husband H4139 thou art, because of the circumcision.
27 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H175 to Aaron, H3212 [H8798] Go H4057 into the wilderness H7125 [H8800] to meet H4872 Moses. H3212 [H8799] And he went, H6298 [H8799] and met H2022 him in the mount H430 of God, H5401 [H8799] and kissed him.
28 H4872 And Moses H5046 [H8686] told H175 Aaron H1697 all the words H3068 of the LORD H7971 [H8804] who had sent H226 him, and all the signs H6680 [H8765] which he had commanded him.
29 H4872 And Moses H175 and Aaron H3212 [H8799] went H622 [H8799] and gathered together H2205 all the elders H1121 of the sons H3478 of Israel:
30 H175 And Aaron H1696 [H8762] spoke H1697 all the words H3068 which the LORD H1696 [H8765] had spoken H4872 to Moses, H6213 [H8799] and performed H226 the signs H5869 in the eyes H5971 of the people.
