2 And God spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am 1the Lord. 3 cI appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as dGod Almighty, but by My name eLord 2I was not known to them. 4 fI have also 3established My covenant with them, gto give them the land of Canaan, the land of their 4pilgrimage, hin which they were 5strangers. 5 And iI have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. 6 Therefore say to the children of Israel: j‘I am the Lord; kI will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will lrescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with 6an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 I will mtake you as My people, and nI will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out ofrom under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 And I will bring you into the land which I pswore 7to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord.’ ”
