Today’s F260 Bible reading: Exodus 6-7

6:1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, for compelled by my strong hand he will release them, and by my strong hand he will drive them out of his land.” 2God spoke to Moses and said to him, “I am the Lord. 3I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name ‘the Lord’ I was not known to them. 4I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, where they were living as resident foreigners. 5I have also heard the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, and I have remembered my covenant. 6Therefore, tell the Israelites, ‘I am the Lord. I will bring you out from your enslavement to the Egyptians, I will rescue you from the hard labor they impose, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7I will take you to myself for a people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from your enslavement to the Egyptians. 8I will bring you to the land I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob—and I will give it to you as a possession. I am the Lord.’” 9 Moses told this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and hard labor. 10Then the Lord said to Moses, 11“Go, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt that he must release the Israelites from his land.” 12But Moses replied to the Lord, “If the Israelites did not listen to me, then how will Pharaoh listen to me, since I speak with difficulty?” 13The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron and gave them a charge for the Israelites and Pharaoh king of Egypt to bring the Israelites out of the land of Egypt. 14 These were the heads of their fathers’ households: The sons of Reuben, the firstborn son of Israel, were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi. These were the clans of Reuben. 15The sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jakin, Zohar, and Shaul, the son of a Canaanite woman. These were the clans of Simeon. 16Now these were the names of the sons of Levi, according to their records: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. (The length of Levi’s life was 137 years.) 17The sons of Gershon, by their families, were Libni and Shimei. 18The sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. (The length of Kohath’s life was 133 years.) 19The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. These were the clans of Levi, according to their records. 20Amram married his father’s sister Jochebed, and she bore him Aaron and Moses. (The length of Amram’s life was 137 years.) 21The sons of Izhar were Korah, Nepheg, and Zikri. 22The sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri. 23Aaron married Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab and sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 24The sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah, and Abiasaph. These were the Korahite clans. 25Now Eleazar son of Aaron married one of the daughters of Putiel and she bore him Phinehas.These were the heads of the fathers’ households of Levi according to their clans. 26It was the same Aaron and Moses to whom the Lord said, “Bring the Israelites out of the land of Egypt by their regiments.” 27They were the men who were speaking to Pharaoh king of Egypt, in order to bring the Israelites out of Egypt. It was the same Moses and Aaron. 28 When the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29he said to him, “I am the Lord. Tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I am telling you.” 30But Moses said before the Lord, “Since I speak with difficulty, why should Pharaoh listen to me?” 7:1 So the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. 2You are to speak everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh that he must release the Israelites from his land. 3But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and although I will multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt, 4Pharaoh will not listen to you. I will reach into Egypt and bring out my regiments, my people the Israelites, from the land of Egypt with great acts of judgment. 5Then the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I extend my hand over Egypt and bring the Israelites out from among them.” 6And Moses and Aaron did so; they did just as the Lord commanded them. 7Now Moses was eighty years old and Aaron was eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. 8The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 9“When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Do a miracle,’ and you say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh,’ it will become a snake.” 10When Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh, they did so, just as the Lord had commanded them—Aaron threw down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a snake. 11Then Pharaoh also summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the magicians of Egypt by their secret arts did the same thing. 12Each man threw down his staff, and the staffs became snakes. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. 13Yet Pharaoh’s heart became hard, and he did not listen to them, just as the Lord had predicted. 14 The Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is hard; he refuses to release the people. 15Go to Pharaoh in the morning when he goes out to the water. Position yourself to meet him by the edge of the Nile, and take in your hand the staff that was turned into a snake. 16Tell him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you to say, “Release my people, that they may serve me in the wilderness!” But until now you have not listened. 17This is what the Lord has said: “By this you will know that I am the Lord: I am going to strike the water of the Nile with the staff that is in my hand, and it will be turned into blood. 18Fish in the Nile will die, the Nile will stink, and the Egyptians will be unable to drink water from the Nile.”’” 19Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over Egypt’s waters—over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their reservoirs—so that it becomes blood.’ There will be blood everywhere in the land of Egypt, even in wooden and stone containers.” 20Moses and Aaron did so, just as the Lord had commanded. He raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile right before the eyes of Pharaoh and his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile was turned to blood. 21When the fish that were in the Nile died, the Nile began to stink, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. There was blood everywhere in the land of Egypt! 22But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts, and so Pharaoh’s heart remained hard, and he refused to listen to Moses and Aaron—just as the Lord had predicted. 23And Pharaoh turned and went into his house. He did not pay any attention to this. 24All the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink, because they could not drink the water of the Nile. 25 Seven full days passed after the Lord struck the Nile.
