and ban a son: and 'when she saw him that he an a goodly child, she hid him three months.

3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the Hags by the river's brink.

4 'And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

5 1 And the -daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side: and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.

7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?

S And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.

0 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, aud I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, aud nursed it.

10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became 'her son. And she called his name li Moses: aud she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

11 H And it came to pass in those days, 'when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, aud looked on their »burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.

12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there wan no man, he ''slew the Egyptian, aud hid him in the sand.

18 And 1 when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong. Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

14 And he said, k\Vho made thee tn prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedstthe Egyptian" And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.

15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slayMoses. But 'Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by nia well.

16 n Now the I! priest of Midian had seven daughters: "and they came and drew water, aud tilled the troughs to water their father's flock.

17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and p watered their flock.

18 And when they came to iReuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?

19 And they said, An Egyptian

I delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may rcat bread.

21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses 1 Zipporah his daughter.

22 And she bare him a son, and he called his name II1 Gershom: for he said, I have been ua stranger in a strange land.

23 Tf And it came to pass 'in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel i sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and 2their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

24 And God "heard their groaning, and God "remembered his 'covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

25 And God 'looked upon the children of Israel, aud God t« had respect unto them.

2 And c the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a llaiue of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this 'great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called "unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: (put off thy shoes from otfthy feet; for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

6 Moreover he said, s I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for hhe was afraid to look upon God.

7 If And the Lord said, 'I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry 'by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

8 And mI am come down to "deliver thcin out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land P flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of ithe Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Pets izzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

10 'Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

111 And Moses said unto God, "Who am I, that I should go upto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

12 And he said, "Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I

have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say uuto the children of Israel, yl AM hath sent me unto you.

15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is 2 my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

16 Go, and agather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, 'I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

5 That they may 'believe that "the Lokd God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.

88 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, ■ I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

CHAPTER V.

1 Pharaoh chideth Moses and Aaron for their message. 5 He increaseth the Israelites' task. 15 lie checketh their complaints. 20 They cry out upon Moses and Aaron. 22 Moses complaineth to God.

AND afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold »n feast unto me in the wilderness.

2 And Pharaoh said, bWho is the Lord, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, c neither will I let Israel go.

3 And they said, '•The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert,

and sacrifice unto the Lord our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.

4 And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your c burdens.

5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are rmany, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,

7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

9 tLet there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Phi raoh, I will not give you straw.

aoh, I will not JUU

11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not aught of your work shall be diminished.

12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

15 If Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.

17 But he said. Ye are idle, ye! are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the Loud.

18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil ease, after it was said, Ye shall not minish aught from your bricks of your daily task.

20 1 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:

21 "And they said unto them, The Lord look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour tto be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

22 And Moses returned nnto the Lord, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?

23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; tneither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
