About Exodus

Exodus 1:1-5 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt. Every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin, Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls, for Joseph was in Egypt already.

Exodus 1:6 And Joseph died and all his brethren and all that generation.

Exodus 1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly and multiplied and waxed exceeding mighty and the land was filled with them.

Exodus 1:8-10 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we. Come on, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply and it come to pass, that, when there falls out any war, they join also unto our enemies and fight against us and so get them up out of the land.

Exodus 1:8-10 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.(blinded by the new power he possessed, his greedy and controlling ideas kept him from being interested enough to examine that system of government which Joseph had established; typical of the dark side he was on, he was closed-minded to anything not of his low consciousness corrupt ways:.Isaiah 59:8; Romans 3:10-18). And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we. Come on, let us deal wisely.(shrewdly).with them, lest they multiply and it come to pass, that, when there falls out any war, they join also unto our enemies and fight against us and so get them up out of the land.
   Note how the first thought was not cooperation with, but rather fear, fear that leads to control and power over others through intimidation and killing. Such is the way of the cunning, but high consciousness deficient.ignorant.dark side.influenced humans who view others as separate and feel they possess the right to put others dowm and to keep them under control using various methods. Nothing has really changed since this beginning of man on Earth. It's the same today in more ways than most know; a couple of them 1, 2.
   Notes on verses 8-10: comprised from Barnes Notes: 'A new king' is a phrase not found elsewhere. It is understood by most commentators to imply that he did not succeed his predecessor in the natural order of descent and inheritance. He 'arose up over Egypt' occupying the land, as it would seem, on different terms from the king whose place he took, either by usurpation or conquest. The fact that he knew not Joseph implies a complete separation from the traditions of Lower Egypt. At present the generality of Egyptian scholars identify this Pharaoh with Rameses II, but all the conditions of the narrative are fulfilled in the person of Amosis I, aka, Aahmes, the head of the 18th Dynasty. He was the descendant of the old Theban sovereigns, but his family was tributary to the Dynasty of the Shepherds, the Hyksos of Manetho, then ruling in the North of Egypt. Amosis married an Ethiopian princess and in the third year of his reign captured Avaris, or Zoan, the capital of the Hyksos and completed the expulsion of that race. 

Exodus 1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. 

Exodus 1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they.(the Egyptians).were grieved.(original 'loathed', 'abhorred').because of the children of Israel.

Exodus 1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour.

Exodus 1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter and in brick and in all manner of service in the field. All their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.(original for word 'rigour' is 'break apart', that is, the Egyptians were harsh in their treatment of the nation slaves called Israel and why? verses 7 and 12 above).

Exodus 1:15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah and the name of the other Puah.

Exodus 1:16 And he said, When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women and see them upon the stools, if it be a son, then you shall kill him, but if it be a daughter then she shall live.

Exodus 1:16 And he said, When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women and see them upon the stools.(giving birth in a way that the baby comes out downward into the hands of the midwives, this way being much easier on the mother and baby), if it be a son, then you shall kill him.(first recorded attempt at depopulation), but if it be a daughter then she shall live.

Exodus 1:17 But the midwives feared God and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

Exodus 1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives and said unto them, Why have you done this thing and have saved the men children alive?

Exodus 1:19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women, for they are lively.(because of their exercise they were healthier).and are delivered ere.(before).the midwives come in unto them.

Exodus 1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives and the people multiplied and waxed very mighty.

Exodus 1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives.(but they told untruths {short story starts above}, but the Creator looks on the heart {1Samuel 16:7}; so did Rahab the prostitute lie and others listed here as well).and the people multiplied and waxed very mighty.

Exodus 1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.

where before they had lived in tents where it was easier to scatter the children to protect them if there was a threat, now they had houses made by Pharoah so they could be more easily watched to see if any male children were in the houses and where surprise visits at night by Pharaoh's men would check up on them

Exodus 1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born you shall cast into the river and every daughter you shall save alive.

Exodus 2:4-7 And his sister stood afar off, to see what would be done to him. 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.(reeds, bulrushes), she sent her maid to fetch it. 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. Then said his.(Mose's sister Miriam came closer when she heard what Pharaoh's daughter was saying).sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call a nurse for you of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you? 

Exodus 2:8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.

Exodus 2:9,10 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away and nurse it for me and I will give you your wages. And the woman took the child and nursed it. And the child grew and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter and he became her son. And she called his name Moses. And she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

Exodus 2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren and looked on their burdens.

Comprised with.Clark's Commentary:.The Egyptians made made the lives of the Israelites bitter by means of heavy burdens, so that they became weary of life, through the severity of their grievous.servitude. Hard.bondage was the general.character of their life in Egypt, a life painful and oppressive enough in itself, but made much more so by the cruel.manner of their treatment while performing their tasks in mortar and in brick. First, in digging the clay, kneading and preparing it and secondly, forming it into bricks and drying them in the Sun. Their service in the field included carrying these materials to the places where they were to be formed into buildings, serving the builders employed in those public works. 

Josephus says."The Egyptians contrived a variety of ways to afflict the Israelites. They enjoined them to cut a great number of channels for the river and to build walls for their cities and ramparts, that they might restrain the river and hinder its waters from stagnating upon its overrunning its own banks. The Egyptians also set them to build pyramids and wore them out also forcing them to learn all sorts of mechanic.arts and got them accustomed to severe hard labor."

Exodus 2:12-14 And he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren. And he looked this way and that way and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. And 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? And he said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Intend you to kill me as you killed the Egyptian? And Moses feared and said Surely this thing is known.(Moses was watched, but he figured no one was around).

Exodus 2:15-23 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian and he sat down by a well. Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters and they came and drew water and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. And the shepherds came and drove them away, but Moses stood up and helped them and watered their flock.

Exodus 2:18 And when they came to Reuel.(also called Raguel {Numbers 10:29} and also called Jethro {Exodus 3:1}, his official title which means 'excellency').their father, he said, How is it that you are come so soon today?

Exodus 2:19-21 And they said, an Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds and also drew water enough for us and watered the flock. And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that you have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread. And Moses was content to dwell with the man and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

Exodus 2:22,23 And she bare him a son and he called his name Gershom.(the name Gershom means 'expulsion'), for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land. And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage.(one king of Egypt dies and another, probably just as bad, took over).and they cried and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage..(it was then Mose's time to return to Egypt:.Exodus 4:21; Acts 7:23)

Exodus 2:24 And God heard their groaning and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.

Exodus 3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian and he led the flock to the backside of the desert and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

Exodus 3:2,3 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him.(Moses; one verse above).in a flame 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. And Moses said, I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

Exodus 3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him.(that is, an angel; God uses angels for such things).out of the midst of the bushes area and said Moses, Moses. And he said Here am I.

Exodus 3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh.hither. Put off your shoes from off your feet for the place whereon you stand is holy ground. 

Exodus 3:6 Moreover he said, 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 he was afraid to look upon God.

Exodus 3:7 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; 

Exodus 3:8 And I am come down.(words 'come down' not in original; simply means 'I will come' or 'go' and deliver them; or I'll deal with it now).to deliver them 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 flowing with milk.(original 'milk', 'sour milk', like buttermilk, 'cheese').and honey.(original 'the natural honeycomb'), unto the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites.and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.

Exodus 3:9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. 

Exodus 3:10 Come now therefore and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that you may bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

Exodus 3:11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

Exodus 3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be with you and this shall be a token.(the token was the burning bush:.Exodus 3:2,3.above).unto you that I have sent you. When you have brought forth the people out of Egypt you shall serve God upon this mountain.

Exodus 3:13,14 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers has sent me unto you and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM. And he said Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent me unto you.

Exodus 3:13,14 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel and shall say unto them The God of your fathers has sent me unto you and they shall say to me What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God.(Creator-God as the Word).said unto Moses I AM THAT I AM.(or, 'I AM WHAT I AM' and what God is, what God always has been, is perfect integration of mind with energy; no disharmony. The "I am what I am" could just as easily have been translated as 'I am what I will to be'. What does that mean? The Creator, also known as 'the Word' is all and all is the purpose the Creator exists. The 'I am' or 'I appear to you that which I truly am' and that is sincerity or silence, for in silence, there is pure sincerity. 'I AM' means existing in the presence of this power, for the power of the Silence surrounds everything. All vibration comes from the stillness, the silence and forms according to the original pattern God produced. This invisible reality can't be touched with our sense of touch and can't be heard with our sense of hearing. We also can't define God as the Creator, being the Word, is in the realm of the unmanifest, the being of the Silence or as some call it, the 'nothingness'. It's beyond all we know. But God is real and can be known for sure. God is a presence one knows is active and comes to be known in meditation. You too exist in this presence.{Psalms 46:10}.and when your mind is off and away from ego concerns and on love, you are then aligned with that which is only love, the stuff of the Silence). And he said Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel.(today it's a spiritual 'Israel' with everyone of love in it), I AM has sent me unto you..('I am that I am' means 'I am the reality of the present', not the past, not the future, but the present, because in the present is all and as is He, so are we. 'I AM' is 'I exist', 'I am aware', 'I create', 'I am that I am' and 'I am what I am', all mean, the universe has become my body, a cosmic consciousness (the body of the Silence). We need to plunge into this vast ocean of consciousness and when we do, we become a member of the body, the family of Creators made from the Silence)

Exodus 3:15 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 my name for ever and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exodus 3:16 Go and gather 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:

Exodus 3:17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt.(Exodus 3:7-10).unto the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey..(Exodus 6:7,8; 33:1; Joshua 1:2)

Exodus 3:18-20 And they shall hearken to thy voice and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and you shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us. Now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God. And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand. And I will stretch out my hand and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof and after that he will let you go.

Exodus 3:21 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians and it shall come to pass that, when you go you shall not go empty.

Exodus 3:22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour and of her that sojourns in her house, jewels of silver and jewels of gold and raiment.(clothing).and you shall put them upon your sons and upon your daughters and you shall spoil the Egyptians.

Exodus 4:1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice, for they will say, The LORD has not appeared unto you.

Exodus 4:2 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

Exodus 4:3 And he said cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground and it became a serpent and Moses fled from before it.

Exodus 4:4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth your hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand and caught it and it became a rod in his hand.

Exodus 4:5 That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob has appeared unto you..(the Creator always wanted humans to believe in Him)

Exodus 4:6-9 And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom and when he took it out behold, his hand was leprous as snow. And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again and plucked it out of his bosom and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh. And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe you, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that you shall take of the water of the river and pour it upon the dry land and the water which you take out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

Exodus 4:10 And Moses said unto the LORD O my Lord I am not eloquent, neither heretofore nor since you have spoken unto your servant. But I am slow of speech and of a slow tongue..(Moses needed to learn public speaking)

Exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him Who has made man's mouth? or who makes the dumb or deaf or the seeing or the blind? Have not I the LORD?

The Creator is responsible for all:.John 9:1-3

Exodus 4:12-15 Now therefore go and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.(Matthew 10:19,20). And he said O my Lord send I pray you by the hand of him whom you will send.(send someone else). And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite.your brother? I know that he can speak well. And also behold, he comes forth to meet you. And when he sees you he will be glad in his heart. And you shall speak unto him and put words in his mouth. And I will be with your mouth and with his mouth and will teach you what you shall do. 

Exodus 4:16 And he.(Aaron, brother of Moses).shall be your spokesman unto the people. And he shall be to you instead of a.(your mouth).mouth and you shall be to him instead of God.(you can tell him what to say).

Exodus 4:19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt, for all the men are dead which sought your life..(Exodus 2:11-23)

Exodus 4:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, When you go to return into Egypt, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in your hand. But I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go..(?)

Exodus 5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh.(which pharaoh was this?), Thus says the LORD.God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. 

Exodus 5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

Exodus 5:3 And they said, The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Let us go, we pray thee.(they were respectful), three days journey into the desert and sacrifice.(what sacrifices?).unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword. 

Exodus 5:4 And the king of Egypt said unto them. Wherefore do you, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works.(what's this crazy idea you have to get the people out of their work)? get you unto your burdens.(go and do your work for us).

Exodus 5:5-8 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many and you make them rest from their burdens. And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying, You shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, you shall lay upon them. You shall not diminish ought thereof, for they be idle, therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

Exodus 5:5-8 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many and you make them rest from their burdens. And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people.(Egyptians who were over the Israelites).and their officers.(Israelites selected by the Egyptian taskmasters to be over other Israelites), saying, You shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. And the tale.(tally).of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, you shall lay upon them. You shall not diminish ought thereof, for they be idle.(it's their fault; they're lazy, but Pharaoh's real concern was to keep them so busy with daily concerns, so that they their minds would be off rising up against the cruel Egyptians; as today, men and women kept busy have little if any interest in changing those things that daily afflict them adversely), therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

Exodus 5:9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein and let them not regard vain words.

Exodus 5:9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein and let them.(the officers selected by Pharoah out of the Israelites to oversee the work of the other Israelites; control of others to the benefit of the few in control).not regard vain words.(don't respond favorably to any excuses).

Exodus 5:10-14 And the taskmasters of the people and their officers went out and spoke to the people, saying, Thus said Pharaoh, I will not give you straw. Go you, get you straw where you can find it, yet not ought of your work shall be diminished. So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw. And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw. And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten and demanded, Wherefore have you not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and today, as heretofore?

Exodus 5:10-14 And the taskmasters of the people and their officers.(the Egyptians had placed some of the Israelites to superintend the work of the other Israelites; these were called officers).went out and spoke to the people, saying, Thus said Pharaoh, I will not give you straw. Go you, get you straw where you can find it, yet not ought.(none).of your work shall be diminished.(do it on your own time; plan was as today, keep them so busy that they would stay away from becoming a threat to those in power). So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw. And the taskmasters hasted them.(forced them constantly, to purposely make it difficult for them), saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw. And the officers of the children of Israel.(the Egyptians had a few of the Israelites over groups of other Israelites, like various supervisors in a construction project, who don't actually work for the construction company, instead being selected from laborers to head other laborers), which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them.(over other Israelites), were beaten and demanded.(these officers were told they were not doing their job of getting their fellow Israelites to work hard enough and were therefor beaten by the Egyptians for this), Wherefore have you not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and today, as heretofore?

Exodus 5:15,16 Then the.officers of the children of Israel.came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore deal you thus with your servants? There is no straw given unto your servants and they say to us, Make brick and behold, your servants are beaten, but the fault is in your own people.

Exodus 5:15,16 Then the.officers.(Israelites placed by the Egyptians to superintend the work of other Israelites).of the children of Israel.came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore deal you thus with your servants? There is no straw given unto your servants and they say to us, Make brick and behold, your servants are beaten.(us, in these positions under your taskmasters and over the working Israelites), but the fault is in your own people.

Exodus 5:17,18 But he said, You are idle, you are idle. Therefore you say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD. Go therefore now and work, for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall you deliver the tale.(the tally, the amount of bricks each man had to daily produce).of bricks.

Exodus 5:19-21 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, You shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task. And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh. And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you and judge, because you have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

Exodus 5:19-21 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case.(Pharaoh lied; they saw there was no truth to what Pharoah was saying and concluded that they were evil and unfair), after it was said, You shall not minish.(diminish).ought from your bricks of your daily task. And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh. And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you and judge, because you have made our savour.(scent; used metaphorically to here mean, our good reputation recently with the Egyptians).to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.(they blamed Moses and Aaron for making things worse for them at the hand of the Egyptians).

Exodus 5:22,23 And Moses returned unto the LORD and said Lord, wherefore have you so evil entreated this people? why is it that you have sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he has done evil to this people, neither have you delivered your people at all.

Exodus 6:1,2 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with a strong hand shall he let them go and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. And God spake unto Moses and said unto him, I am the LORD. 

Exodus 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty.(all powerful God), but by my name JEHOVAH.(means 'the forever existing One').was I not known to them.

Exodus 6:4,5 And I have also established my covenant.(agreement) with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage and I have remembered my covenant. 

Exodus 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians and I will rid you out of their bondage and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm and with great judgments.

Exodus 6:7,8 And I will take you to me for a people and I will be to you a God and you shall know that I am the LORD your God, which brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob and I will give it you for an heritage. I am the LORD.

Exodus 6:9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel, but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit and for cruel.bondage..(they were upset with Moses, blaming him for their plight)

Exodus 6:10-12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me, how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips.(Moses couldn't speak fluently)?

Exodus 6:16 And these are the names of the sons of Levi.(who became the ancient Levitical priesthood).according to their generations; Gershon and Kohath and Merari and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.

Exodus 6:17-18 The sons of Gershon; Libni and Shimi, according to their families. And the sons of Kohath; Amram and Izhar and Hebron and Uzziel and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and three years. 

Exodus 6:19 And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi. These are the families of Levi according to their generations. 

Exodus 6:20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife and she bare him Aaron and Moses.(and also Miriam:.Numbers 26:59).and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years. 

Exodus 6:21-24 And the sons of Izhar; Korah and Nepheg and Zichri. And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael and Elzaphan and Zithri. And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Naashon, to wife and she bare him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. And the sons of Korah; Assir and Elkanah and Abiasaph. These are the families of the Korhites.
