1 Yahweh said to Moses, Now you will see that I will overcome him and oblige him to let you go, even force him to drive you out of his land.
Another narrative of the call of Moses
:B:2God spoke to Moses saying, I am Yahweh! 3I appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty, but I did not make myself known to them by the name of Yahweh.4I established my covenant with them promising to give them the land of Canaan, in which they lived as strangers,5and now I remember my co venant as I hear the groaning of the Is raelites enslaved by the Egyptians.
6Therefore say this to them: I am Yahweh. I will take you away from the burden of Egypt and free you from its bondage
9This is how Moses spoke to the people of Israel but they did not listen, so discouraged were they by their cruel slavery.
10Yahweh spoke to Moses saying,11Go and speak to Pharaoh, king of Egypt and tell him to let the people of Israel leave the country. 12But Moses said, If the Israelites paid no attention to me, how then will Pharaoh listen to me, a man who has difficulty in expressing him self?13But Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron and ordered them, and Pha raoh as well, to bring the people of Israel out of Egypt.

26It was to Aaron and Moses that Yahweh said, Bring the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt in divisions.
27It was they who spoke with Pha raoh, king of Egypt, about bringing the Israelites out of Egypt. Yes, it was Moses and Aaron.
28When Yahweh spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,29he said, I am Yahweh. Say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, all that I tell you. 30But Moses replied, I am a poor speaker and why would Pharaoh listen to me?
