Then God told Moses that he had seen Israel's tough time in Egypt
and had heard their cries. God said that He had come to deliver
Israel from the Egyptians. God told Moses that he would send him
to Pharaoh to bring His people out of Israel.
Moses was worried that he was not able to bring Israel out of Egypt.
God told Him not to worry because He would be with him.
And Moses was worried that Israel would want to know God's name.
God said: "I AM WHO I AM." Moses was to tell them: "I

Then Moses was worried that the people would not believe him. So
God gave him three miracles to perform so that they would believe.
First his rod would turn into a serpent and then back to a rod.
Second, his hand would turn white and then back to normal. And third,
water from the river would turn into blood.
Then Moses was worried because he was not a good speaker. God told
him that He would teach him what to say. And God gave him Aaron,
his brother, to be his spokesman.
