Exodus 3

EXODUS 3

While Moses is tending the flock of Jethro, he comes to Horeb, the mountain of God. The Lord appears to him in a burning bush. "Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground." (Exodus 3:5 NIV)

God tells Moses that he is the god of Israel and would send Moses to Pharaoh to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. When Moses asks God whom he should say has sent him, God said to Moses, "I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I am has sent me to you.'" (Exodus 3:14 NIV)

God promises to deliver Israel into "a land flowing with milk and honey" and tells Moses that the Israelites will listen to him, but Egypt will refuse to let them go.

Exodus 4

An King James Bible Exodus 4.
EXODUS 4

Moses, who has been called by God to deliver Israel from Pharaoh, asks, "What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, 'The Lord did not appear to you'?" (Exodus 4:1 NIV). God gives Moses three signs that he can perform to authenticate his call - the ability to turn Moses' staff into a snake, the ability to make his hand leprous and then well again, and the ability to turn water into blood.

Moses then objects that he is "slow of speech and tongue" (Exodus 4:10 NIV). God says, "Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say." (Exodus 4:12 NIV). But Moses asks that God send someone else to speak for him and God tells him to take his brother Aaron.

In the King James Version there is reference to God moving the lips of Moses, a spiritual possession, and putting words in his mouth so that he may be an avatar[disambiguation needed], a tele-presence for imparting God's message to the people. Exodus 4 Verse 15 "And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what to do."

Moses leaves Jethro with his wife and sons. God reminds Moses that Pharaoh will refuse to let Israel go and that the firstborn son of every Egyptian will die as a result. God briefly wants to kill Moses, but a bloody foreskin changes his mind. Moses meets Aaron in the desert and they go to speak with the elders of Israel. "And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped." (Exodus 4:31 NIV).

The date can be calculated based on a 961BC date for Solomons Temple, we then add the 480 years which arrives at 1441 BC for the Exodus. The 10 Commandments would have been received some time after that - probably in 1440 or later in 1441, depending on which month the Exodus began in. The verse below indicates it took 3 months to travel from Egypt to Sinai where the commandments were given to Moses.[1]

Exodus 5

EXODUS 5

Moses and Aaron tell Pharaoh, "Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness." (Exodus 5:1 KJV). Pharaoh refuses to let the Israelites go and instead commands that they no longer be given straw with which to make brick - they must gather the straw themselves, but still produce the same quota.

The Israelite foremen realized that they could not meet this quota and they asked Pharaoh to relent, but he would not. They then accused Moses and Aaron of stirring up trouble and giving the Egyptians a reason to kill them.

After they said this, Moses asked God, "O Lord, why have you brought trouble upon this people? Is this why you sent me? Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble upon this people, and you have not rescued your people at all." (Exodus 5:22-23 NIV).

Exodus 6

EXODUS 6

God reminds Moses of His relationship with Israel, and commands him to tell the people that He will deliver them from Egypt and bring them into the land. But because they were in anguish from their bondage, the children of Israel did not listen.

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. (Exodus 6:10-11 KJV)

Moses replied that he was not an eloquent speaker and asked how Pharaoh would listen to him.

Exodus 7

EXODUS 7

God tells Moses that he and Aaron will command Pharaoh to free the children of Israel, but that Pharaoh's heart will be hardened and he will not obey. God promises to send signs and wonders so that the Egyptians will know that He is the God.

Pharaoh asks Moses and Aaron for a miracle and, as God had commanded, Aaron throws down his staff and it becomes a snake. The sorcerers and magicians then duplicate this feat - they throw down their own staffs and they too become snakes, but Aaron's "snake" then eats the other snakes.

But Pharaoh's heart is hardened and he refuses to let Israel go. Moses then, at God's command, turns the waters of Egypt into blood, killing all of the fish and ruining the water supply, but Pharaoh is unrelenting.

Exodus 9

EXODUS 9

The plagues of Egypt continue with an epidemic disease on Egyptian livestock. The Israelites' cattle are unharmed. Once again, Pharaoh makes no concessions.

God commands Moses and Aaron to each take two handfuls of soot from a furnace, and scatter it skyward in Pharaoh's presence. The soot induces boils on Egyptian men and livestock. The Egyptian sorcerers are afflicted along with everyone else, and are unable to heal themselves, much less Egypt.

God commands Moses to stretch his staff skyward, which commences a powerful shower of hail intermixed with fire. The storm heavily damages Egyptian crops, as well as men and livestock. The storm strikes all of Egypt except for the Land of Goshen. Pharaoh promises to allow the Israelites to worship God in the desert. The hail stops as soon as Moses begins praying to God. However, Pharaoh refuses to keep his promise.

Exodus 10

EXODUS 10

Moses warns Pharaoh of the impending plague of locusts. Pharaoh's officials beg him to let the men go, but he is still unwilling to give in. He proposes a compromise: the men will be allowed to go, while women, children and livestock will remain in Egypt. Moses repeats God's demand that every last person and animal shall go, but Pharaoh refuses.

God has Moses stretch his staff over Egypt, and a wind brings a locust swarm. The swarm covers the sky, casting a shadow over Egypt, consuming all remaining crops. Pharaoh again promises to allow the children of Israel to worship God in the desert. As promised, God hardens Pharaoh's heart, and Pharaoh does not allow Israel to leave.

God instructs Moses to stretch his hand over Egypt, and bringing a tangible darkness for three days. The children of Israel are able to see perfectly. Pharaoh summons Moses again to bargain with him: he offers to let all the Hebrews go, but leave their livestock in Egypt. Moses refuses this condition. Pharaoh is outraged, and he threatens Moses with death.

Exodus 12

Turnertenth.jpg

EXODUS 12

God commanded Moses to teach the ritual of Pesah. God told Moses to order the Hebrews to mark their doorpost with the lamb's blood, in order that the plague of death would pass over them.

In the middle of the night, God came upon Egypt to take the life of all the Egyptian first-born sons, including Pharaoh's own son. There was a great cry in Egypt, such as had never been heard before, or ever will be heard again. However, no Hebrew first-born was killed, as God "passed over" the Israelite houses.

Pharaoh ordered the Israelites to go away, taking whatever they wanted. The Israelites didn't hesitate; and at the end of that night Moses led them out of Egypt.

God sends a strong east wind and the Israelites enter the sea on dry ground, the water like a wall on the right and left. The Egyptians follow, but God commands Moses to stretch out his staff again, and the waters return, covering the chariots and horsemen. The people fear the LORD and have faith in Moses.

EXODUS 32

The people, impatient for Moses’ return, implore Aaron to make them a god. Aaron molds a golden calf and the people offer sacrifices, eat, drink, and dance. God tells Moses what the people have done, saying he will destroy them. Moses implores God not to do so, calling on God to remember his oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and God renounces the planned punishment. Moses goes down the mountain bearing the two tablets, and becomes enraged and shatters the tablets. He burns the calf, grinds it to powder, strews it upon the water, and makes the Israelites drink it. All the Levites, at Moses’ instruction, kills 3,000 people. God punishes the remaining sinners by means of a plague.

The Israelites bring the gifts that Moses requested. Moses announces that God has singled out Bezalel and Aholiab to endow them with the skills needed to construct the Tabernacle.

God tells Moses to set up the Tabernacle, and Moses does as God commanded him, on the first day of the second year of the Exodus. When Moses finishes the work, the cloud covers the Tabernacle, and God’s presence fills the Tabernacle. The Israelites travel only when the cloud lifts from the Tabernacle. God’s cloud rests over the Tabernacle by day, and fire appears in it by night, throughout the Israelites’ journeys.
