Exodus 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Moshe was feeding the flock of Yatherwan his father in Law, Priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the wilderness and came to the mountain of God at Khurib. 2And the Angel of LORD JEHOVAH appeared to him in a flame of fire from within the bush, and he saw the bush that was on fire with fire in it, and the bush was not burned. 3And Moshe said, “I shall turn aside, I shall see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” 4And LORD JEHOVAH saw that he turned aside to see, and God called to him from within the bush, and he said, “Moshe, Moshe”, and he said, “Here I am.” 5And he said to him, “Do not come near here. Take off your shoes from your feet, because the place where you are standing is holy.” 6And he said, “I AM the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Yaquuv”, and Moshe hid his face because he was afraid to gaze on the Presence of God.

7And LORD JEHOVAH said: “Looking, I have seen the oppression of my people who are in Egypt and I have heard their groans from before their oppressors, because I know their suffering; 8And I have come down for its salvation from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up from this land to a land that is enlarged and good, to a land that flows milk and honey, to the land of Canaanites and of Khethites and of Amorites and Perizites and of Khivites and of Yebusites. 9And now, behold, the cries of the children of Israel have entered my Presence, also I have seen the suffering that the Egyptians are inflicting on them.

10Now come, I shall send you to Pharaoh and I shall bring out my people, the children of Israel, from Egypt.” 11And Moshe said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring out the house of Israel from Egypt?” 12And God said to him, “I shall be with you, and this is the sign that I have sent you; when I shall bring out the people from Egypt, you will serve before God on this mountain.”

13And Moshe said to God, “Behold, I shall go to the children of Israel and I shall say to them, LORD JEHOVAH, God of your fathers has sent me unto you”, and they will say to me, ‘What is his name?’ What shall I say to them?” 14And God said to Moshe: Ahiah Ashra High“I AM what I AM”, and he said, thus say to the children of Israel: Ahiah – “I AM” has sent me unto you.” 15And God said again to Moshe: “In this way speak to the children of Israel: ‘LORD JEHOVAH, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Yaquuv has sent me unto you’; this is my Name to eternity and this is my memorial to a generation of generations. 16Go gather the Elders of the children of Israel and say to them: ‘LORD JEHOVAH the God of your fathers was revealed to me, the God of Abraham and of Ishaq and of Yaquuv, saying, “Remembering, I have remembered you and whatever was done to you in Egypt 17And I said, ‘I shall bring you from the oppression of the Egyptians to the land of Canaanites and of the Khethites and of the Amorites and of Perezites and of Khivites and of Yebusites, to the land that flows milk and honey.' 18And they shall hear your voice and you shall enter, you and the Elders of the children of Israel, unto the King of Egypt, and you shall say to him, ‘LORD JEHOVAH God of the Hebrews was revealed to us; now let us go a journey of three days in the wilderness and we will sacrifice to LORD JEHOVAH our God.’ 19And I know that the King of Egypt will not allow you to go, and it is not in his power. 20And I shall reach my hands and I shall strike the Egyptians to do all wonders among them, and after that they shall send you away. 21And I shall give the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and when you go, you shall not go with nothing: 22A woman shall ask for a vessel of gold and a vessel of silver and garments from her neighbor and from the foreign woman in her house, and clothe your sons and your daughters and empty the Egyptians.”
