(A)You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on (B)eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. Now then, (C)if you will indeed obey My voice and (D)keep My covenant, then you shall be (E)My [a]own possession among all the peoples, for (F)all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me (G)a kingdom of priests and (H)a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.”

Moses Intercedes

12 Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘(A)Bring up this people!’ But You Yourself have not let me know (B)whom You will send with me. (C)Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’ 13 Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, (D)let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. (E)Consider too, that this nation is Your people.” 14 And He said, “(F)My presence shall go with you, and (G)I will give you rest.”

He said, “(B)If now I have found favor in Your sight, O Lord, I pray, let the Lord go along in our midst, even though [b](C)the people are so obstinate, and (D)pardon our iniquity and our sin, and (E)take us as Your own [c]possession.”

Before all your people (G)I will perform miracles which have not been [e]produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people [f]among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.
