Exodus 3


1  Now Moses4872 kept1961 7462 853 the flock6629 of Jethro3503 his father-in-law,2859 the priest3548 of Midian:4080 and he led5090 853 the flock6629 to the backside310 of the desert,4057 and came935 to413 the mountain2022 of God,430 even to Horeb.2722

2  And the angel4397 of the LORD3068 appeared7200 unto413 him in a flame3827 of fire784 out of the midst4480 8432 of a bush:5572 and he looked,7200 and, behold,2009 the bush5572 burned1197 with fire,784 and the bush5572 was not369 consumed.398

3  And Moses4872 said,559 I will now4994 turn aside,5493 and see7200 this2088 great1419 853 sight,4758 why4069 the bush5572 is not3808 burnt.1197

4  And when the LORD3068 saw7200 that3588 he turned aside5493 to see,7200 God430 called7121 unto413 him out of the midst4480 8432 of the bush,5572 and said,559 Moses,4872 Moses.4872 And he said,559 Here2009 am I.

5  And he said,559 Draw not nigh7126 408 hither:1988 put off5394 thy shoes5275 from off4480 5921 thy feet,7272 for3588 the place4725 whereon834 5921 thou859 standest5975 is holy6944 ground.127

6  Moreover he said,559 I595 am the God430 of thy father,1 the God430 of Abraham,85 the God430 of Isaac,3327 and the God430 of Jacob.3290 And Moses4872 hid5641 his face;6440 for3588 he was afraid3372 to look4480 5027 upon413 God.430

7  And the LORD3068 said,559 I have surely seen7200 7200 853 the affliction6040 of my people5971 which834 are in Egypt,4714 and have heard8085 their cry6818 by reason of4480 6440 their taskmasters;5065 for3588 I know3045 853 their sorrows;4341

8  And I am come down3381 to deliver5337 them out of the hand4480 3027 of the Egyptians,4714 and to bring them up5927 out of4480 that1931 land776 unto413 a good2896 land776 and a large,7342 unto413 a land776 flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey;1706 unto413 the place4725 of the Canaanites,3669 and the Hittites,2850 and the Amorites,567 and the Perizzites,6522 and the Hivites,2340 and the Jebusites.2983

9  Now6258 therefore, behold,2009 the cry6818 of the children1121 of Israel3478 is come935 unto413 me: and I have also1571 seen7200 853 the oppression3906 wherewith834 the Egyptians4714 oppress3905 them.

10  Come1980 now6258 therefore, and I will send7971 thee unto413 Pharaoh,6547 that thou mayest bring forth3318 853 my people5971 the children1121 of Israel3478 out of Egypt.4480 4714

11  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 God,430 Who4310 am I,595 that3588 I should go1980 unto413 Pharaoh,6547 and that3588 I should bring forth3318 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 out of Egypt?4480 4714

12  And he said,559 Certainly3588 I will be1961 with5973 thee; and this2088 shall be a token226 unto thee, that3588 I595 have sent7971 thee: When thou hast brought forth3318 853 the people5971 out of Egypt,4480 4714 ye shall serve5647 853 God430 upon5921 this2088 mountain.2022

13  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 God,430 Behold,2009 when I595 come935 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 and shall say559 unto them, The God430 of your fathers1 hath sent7971 me unto413 you; and they shall say559 to me, What4100 is his name?8034 what4100 shall I say559 unto413 them?

14  And God430 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 I AM1961 THAT834 I AM:1961 and he said,559 Thus3541 shalt thou say559 unto the children1121 of Israel,3478 I AM1961 hath sent7971 me unto413 you.

15  And God430 said559 moreover5750 unto413 Moses,4872 Thus3541 shalt thou say559 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 The LORD3068 God430 of your fathers,1 the God430 of Abraham,85 the God430 of Isaac,3327 and the God430 of Jacob,3290 hath sent7971 me unto413 you: this2088 is my name8034 forever,5769 and this2088 is my memorial2143 unto all generations.1755 1755

16  Go,1980 and gather622 853 the elders2205 of Israel3478 together, and say559 unto413 them, The LORD3068 God430 of your fathers,1 the God430 of Abraham,85 of Isaac,3327 and of Jacob,3290 appeared7200 unto413 me, saying,559 I have surely visited6485 6485 you, and seen that which is done6213 to you in Egypt:4714

17  And I have said,559 I will bring you up5927 853 out of the affliction4480 6040 of Egypt4714 unto413 the land776 of the Canaanites,3669 and the Hittites,2850 and the Amorites,567 and the Perizzites,6522 and the Hivites,2340 and the Jebusites,2983 unto413 a land776 flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey.1706

18  And they shall hearken8085 to thy voice:6963 and thou shalt come,935 thou859 and the elders2205 of Israel,3478 unto413 the king4428 of Egypt,4714 and ye shall say559 unto413 him, The LORD3068 God430 of the Hebrews5680 hath met7136 with5921 us: and now6258 let us go,1980 we beseech thee,4994 three7969 days'3117 journey1870 into the wilderness,4057 that we may sacrifice2076 to the LORD3068 our God.430

19  And I589 am sure3045 that3588 the king4428 of Egypt4714 will not3808 let5414 you go,1980 no,3808 not by a mighty2389 hand.3027

20  And I will stretch out7971 853 my hand,3027 and smite5221 853 Egypt4714 with all3605 my wonders6381 which834 I will do6213 in the midst7130 thereof: and after310 that3651 he will let you go.7971

21  And I will give5414 this2088 people5971 853 favor2580 in the sight5869 of the Egyptians:4714 and it shall come to pass,1961 that, when3588 ye go,1980 ye shall not3808 go1980 empty:7387

22  But every woman802 shall borrow7592 of her neighbor,4480 7934 and of her that sojourneth4480 1481 in her house,1004 jewels3627 of silver,3701 and jewels3627 of gold,2091 and raiment:8071 and ye shall put7760 them upon5921 your sons,1121 and upon5921 your daughters;1323 and ye shall spoil5337 853 the Egyptians.4714


1 καὶ Μωυσῆς ἦν ποιμαίνων τὰ πρόβατα Ιοθορ τοῦ γαμβροῦ αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἱερέως Μαδιαμ καὶ ἤγαγεν τὰ πρόβατα ὑπὸ τὴν ἔρημον καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς τὸ ὄρος Χωρηβ

2 ὤφθη δὲ αὐτῷ ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐν φλογὶ πυρὸς ἐκ τοῦ βάτου καὶ ὁρᾷ ὅτι ὁ βάτος καίεται πυρί ὁ δὲ βάτος οὐ κατεκαίετο

3 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς παρελθὼν ὄψομαι τὸ ὅραμα τὸ μέγα τοῦτο τί ὅτι οὐ κατακαίεται ὁ βάτος

4 ὡς δὲ εἶδεν κύριος ὅτι προσάγει ἰδεῖν ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν κύριος ἐκ τοῦ βάτου λέγων Μωυσῆ Μωυσῆ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν τί ἐστιν

5 καὶ εἶπεν μὴ ἐγγίσῃς ὧδε λῦσαι τὸ ὑπόδημα ἐκ τῶν ποδῶν σου ὁ γὰρ τόπος ἐν ᾧ σὺ ἕστηκας γῆ ἁγία ἐστίν

6 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ θεὸς τοῦ πατρός σου θεὸς Αβρααμ καὶ θεὸς Ισαακ καὶ θεὸς Ιακωβ ἀπέστρεψεν δὲ Μωυσῆς τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εὐλαβεῖτο γὰρ κατεμβλέψαι ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ

7 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἰδὼν εἶδον τὴν κάκωσιν τοῦ λαοῦ μου τοῦ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ τῆς κραυγῆς αὐτῶν ἀκήκοα ἀπὸ τῶν ἐργοδιωκτῶν οἶδα γὰρ τὴν ὀδύνην αὐτῶν

8 καὶ κατέβην ἐξελέσθαι αὐτοὺς ἐκ χειρὸς Αἰγυπτίων καὶ ἐξαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς γῆς ἐκείνης καὶ εἰσαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς γῆν ἀγαθὴν καὶ πολλήν εἰς γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι εἰς τὸν τόπον τῶν Χαναναίων καὶ Χετταίων καὶ Αμορραίων καὶ Φερεζαίων καὶ Γεργεσαίων καὶ Ευαίων καὶ Ιεβουσαίων

9 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ κραυγὴ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἥκει πρός με κἀγὼ ἑώρακα τὸν θλιμμόν ὃν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι θλίβουσιν αὐτούς

10 καὶ νῦν δεῦρο ἀποστείλω σε πρὸς Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐξάξεις τὸν λαόν μου τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

11 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς τὸν θεόν τίς εἰμι ὅτι πορεύσομαι πρὸς Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ὅτι ἐξάξω τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

12 εἶπεν δὲ ὁ θεὸς Μωυσεῖ λέγων ὅτι ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ καὶ τοῦτό σοι τὸ σημεῖον ὅτι ἐγώ σε ἐξαποστέλλω ἐν τῷ ἐξαγαγεῖν σε τὸν λαόν μου ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ λατρεύσετε τῷ θεῷ ἐν τῷ ὄρει τούτῳ

13 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς τὸν θεόν ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐλεύσομαι πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἐρῶ πρὸς αὐτούς ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ἀπέσταλκέν με πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐρωτήσουσίν με τί ὄνομα αὐτῷ τί ἐρῶ πρὸς αὐτούς

14 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ὤν καὶ εἶπεν οὕτως ἐρεῖς τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ὁ ὢν ἀπέσταλκέν με πρὸς ὑμᾶς

15 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεὸς πάλιν πρὸς Μωυσῆν οὕτως ἐρεῖς τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν θεὸς Αβρααμ καὶ θεὸς Ισαακ καὶ θεὸς Ιακωβ ἀπέσταλκέν με πρὸς ὑμᾶς τοῦτό μού ἐστιν ὄνομα αἰώνιον καὶ μνημόσυνον γενεῶν γενεαῖς

16 ἐλθὼν οὖν συνάγαγε τὴν γερουσίαν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ὦπταί μοι θεὸς Αβρααμ καὶ θεὸς Ισαακ καὶ θεὸς Ιακωβ λέγων ἐπισκοπῇ ἐπέσκεμμαι ὑμᾶς καὶ ὅσα συμβέβηκεν ὑμῖν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ

17 καὶ εἶπον ἀναβιβάσω ὑμᾶς ἐκ τῆς κακώσεως τῶν Αἰγυπτίων εἰς τὴν γῆν τῶν Χαναναίων καὶ Χετταίων καὶ Αμορραίων καὶ Φερεζαίων καὶ Γεργεσαίων καὶ Ευαίων καὶ Ιεβουσαίων εἰς γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι

18 καὶ εἰσακούσονταί σου τῆς φωνῆς καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ σὺ καὶ ἡ γερουσία Ισραηλ πρὸς Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτόν ὁ θεὸς τῶν Εβραίων προσκέκληται ἡμᾶς πορευσώμεθα οὖν ὁδὸν τριῶν ἡμερῶν εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ἵνα θύσωμεν τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν

19 ἐγὼ δὲ οἶδα ὅτι οὐ προήσεται ὑμᾶς Φαραω βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου πορευθῆναι ἐὰν μὴ μετὰ χειρὸς κραταιᾶς

20 καὶ ἐκτείνας τὴν χεῖρα πατάξω τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς θαυμασίοις μου οἷς ποιήσω ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐξαποστελεῖ ὑμᾶς

21 καὶ δώσω χάριν τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ ἐναντίον τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ὅταν δὲ ἀποτρέχητε οὐκ ἀπελεύσεσθε κενοί

22 αἰτήσει γυνὴ παρὰ γείτονος καὶ συσκήνου αὐτῆς σκεύη ἀργυρᾶ καὶ χρυσᾶ καὶ ἱματισμόν καὶ ἐπιθήσετε ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν καὶ σκυλεύσετε τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους

1 Moyses autem pascebat oves Jethro soceri sui sacerdotis Madian: cumque minasset gregem ad interiora deserti, venit ad montem Dei Horeb.

2 Apparuitque ei Dominus in flamma ignis de medio rubi: et videbat quod rubus arderet, et non combureretur.

3 Dixit ergo Moyses: Vadam, et videbo visionem hanc magnam, quare non comburatur rubus.

4 Cernens autem Dominus quod pergeret ad videndum, vocavit eum de medio rubi, et ait: Moyses, Moyses. Qui respondit: Adsum.

5 At ille: Ne appropies, inquit, huc: solve calceamentum de pedibus tuis: locus enim, in quo stas, terra sancta est.

6 Et ait: Ego sum Deus patris tui, Deus Abraham, Deus Isaac et Deus Jacob. Abscondit Moyses faciem suam: non enim audebat aspicere contra Deum.

7 Cui ait Dominus: Vidi afflictionem populi mei in Ægypto, et clamorem ejus audivi propter duritiam eorum qui præsunt operibus:

8 et sciens dolorem ejus, descendi ut liberem eum de manibus Ægyptiorum, et educam de terra illa in terram bonam, et spatiosam, in terram quæ fluit lacte et melle, ad loca Chananæi et Hethæi, et Amorrhæi, et Pherezæi, et Hevæi, et Jebusæi.

9 Clamor ergo filiorum Israël venit ad me: vidique afflictionem eorum, qua ab Ægyptiis opprimuntur.

10 Sed veni, et mittam te ad Pharaonem, ut educas populum meum, filios Israël, de Ægypto.

11 Dixitque Moyses ad Deum: Quis sum ego ut vadam ad Pharaonem, et educam filios Israël de Ægypto?

12 Qui dixit ei: Ego ero tecum: et hoc habebis signum, quod miserim te: cum eduxeris populum meum de Ægypto, immolabis Deo super montem istum.

13 Ait Moyses ad Deum: Ecce ego vadam ad filios Israël, et dicam eis: Deus patrum vestrorum misit me ad vos. Si dixerint mihi: Quod est nomen ejus? quid dicam eis?

14 Dixit Deus ad Moysen: Ego sum qui sum. Ait: Sic dices filiis Israël: Qui est, misit me ad vos.

15 Dixitque iterum Deus ad Moysen: Hæc dices filiis Israël: Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum, Deus Abraham, Deus Isaac et Deus Jacob, misit me ad vos: hoc nomen mihi est in æternum, et hoc memoriale meum in generationem et generationem.

16 Vade, et congrega seniores Israël, et dices ad eos: Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum apparuit mihi, Deus Abraham, Deus Isaac et Deus Jacob, dicens: Visitans visitavi vos: et vidi omnia quæ acciderunt vobis in Ægypto.

17 Et dixi ut educam vos de afflictione Ægypti in terram Chananæi, et Hethæi, et Amorrhæi, et Pherezæi, et Hevæi, et Jebusæi, ad terram fluentem lacte et melle.

18 Et audient vocem tuam: ingredierisque tu, et seniores Israël, ad regem Ægypti, et dices ad eum: Dominus Deus Hebræorum vocavit nos: ibimus viam trium dierum in solitudinem, ut immolemus Domino Deo nostro.

19 Sed ego scio quod non dimittet vos rex Ægypti ut eatis nisi per manum validam.

20 Extendam enim manum meam, et percutiam Ægyptum in cunctis mirabilibus meis, quæ facturus sum in medio eorum: post hæc dimittet vos.

21 Daboque gratiam populo huic coram Ægyptiis: et cum egrediemini, non exibitis vacui:

22 sed postulabit mulier a vicina sua et ab hospita sua, vasa argentea et aurea, ac vestes: ponetisque eas super filios et filias vestras, et spoliabitis Ægyptum.
