Exodus 6


The LORD Remembers His Covenant

1And the  lord said to Moses, Already you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with [2hand 1a fortified] he shall send them; and with [2arm 1a high] he will cast them from out of his land. 2[3spoke 1And 2God] to Moses, and said to him, I am the  lord. 3And I appeared to Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, [3God 1being 2their]. And my name, the  lord, was not manifested to them. 4And I established my covenant with them, so as to give to them the land of Canaan, the land which they sojourned, in which also they sojourned upon it. 5And I hearkened to the moaning of the sons of Israel, in which the Egyptians reduced them to slavery. And I remembered your covenant. 6Proceed, say to the sons of Israel! saying, I am the  lord, and I will lead you from the domination of the Egyptians, and I will rescue you from their slavery, and I will ransom you with [2arm 1a high] and [2judgment 1great]. 7And I will take you to myself as a people to me. And I will be your God. And you will know that I am the  lord your God, the one leading you from out of the tyranny of the Egyptians. 8And I will bring you into the land in which I stretched out my hand to give it to Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob. And I will give it to you by lot. I am the  lord. 9[3spoke 1And 2Moses] thus to the sons of Israel, and they did not hearken to Moses because of faint-heartedness, and because of the [2works 1hard]. 10[3said 1And 2the  lord] to Moses, saying, 11Enter, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt! that he may send out the sons of Israel from his land. 12[3spoke 1And 2Moses] before the  lord, saying, Behold, the sons of Israel do not listen to me, and how shall [2listen to 3me 1Pharaoh], for I am not reckoned? 13[3spoke 1And 2the  lord] to Moses and Aaron, and he ordered them to Pharaoh king of Egypt, so as to lead out the sons of Israel from out of the land of Egypt.

The Chiefs of Israel

14And these are the chiefs of the houses of their families. The sons of Reuben first-born of Israel -- Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi -- this is the kin of Reuben. 15And the sons of Simeon -- Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the one from the Phoenician woman. These are the families of the sons of Simeon. 16And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their kin -- Gershon, Kohath and Merari; and the years of the life of Levi -- a hundred thirty-seven years. 17And these are the sons of Gershon -- Libni and Shimei; the houses of their family. 18And the sons of Kohath -- Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of Kohath -- a hundred thirty years. 19And the sons of Merari -- Mahli, and Mushi. These are the houses of the families of Levi, according to their kin. 20And Amram took Jochebed daughter of the brother of his father to himself for a wife. And she bore to him also Aaron, and Moses, and Miriam their sister. And the years of the life of Amram -- a hundred thirty-seven years. 21And the sons of Izhar -- Korah, and Nepheg, and Zithri. 22And the sons of Uzziel -- Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri. 23[3took 1And 2Aaron] Elisheba daughter of Amminadab sister of Naahshon to himself as wife. And she bore to him also Nadab, and Abihu, and Eleazar, and Ithamar. 24And the sons of Korah -- Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasar. These are the generations of Korah. 25And Eleazar the son of Aaron, took of the daughters of Putiel to himself as wife; and she bore to him Phinehas. These are the heads of the family of the Levites, according to their generations. 26This Aaron and Moses, is whom God said to them to lead the sons of Israel from out of Egypt with their force. 27These are the ones reasoning with Pharaoh king of Egypt, so as to lead the sons of Israel from out of Egypt -- Aaron himself and Moses, 28in the day the  lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt. 29And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the  lord. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt as much as I tell to you! 30And Moses said before the  lord, Behold, I am weak-voiced, and how shall [2listen to 3me 1Pharaoh]?
