Exodus 3:1-6

The Burning Bush

1Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the a  mountain of God. 2 b  And c  the angel of the  Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. 3And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” 4When the  Lord saw that he turned aside to see, d  God called to him e  out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” 5Then he said, “Do not come near; f  take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” 6And he said, g  “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for h  he was afraid to look at God.
