He has put an end to death for ever and the Lord God will take away all weeping and he will put an end to the shame of his people in all the earth: for the Lord has said it. Isaiah 25.8

Exodus 3


1
Now Moses was looking after the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the priest of Midian: and he took the flock to the back of the waste land and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
2
And the angel of the Lord was seen by him in a flame of fire coming out of a thorn-tree: and he saw that the tree was on fire, but it was not burned up.
3
And Moses said, I will go and see this strange thing, why the tree is not burned up,
4
And when the Lord saw him turning to one side to see, God said his name out of the tree, crying, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
5
And he said, Do not come near: take off your shoes from your feet, for the place where you are is holy.
6
And he said, I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses kept his face covered for fear of looking on God.
7
And God said, Truly, I have seen the grief of my people in Egypt, and their cry because of their cruel masters has come to my ears for I have knowledge of their sorrows
8
And I have come down to take them out of the hands of the Egyptians, guiding them out of that land into a good land and wide, into a land flowing with milk and honey into the place of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.
9
For now, truly, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me, and I have seen the cruel behaviour of the Egyptians to them.
10
Come, then, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may take my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.
11
And Moses said to God, Who am I to go to Pharaoh and take the children of Israel out of Egypt?
12
And he said, Truly I will be with you and this will be the sign to you that I have sent you: when you have taken the children of Israel out of Egypt, you will give worship to God on this mountain.
13
And Moses said to God, When I come to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you: and they say to me, What is his name? what am I to say to them?
14
And God said to him, I AM WHAT I AM: and he said, Say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.
15
And God went on to say to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has sent me to you: this is my name for ever, and this is my sign to all generations.
16
Go and get together the chiefs of the children of Israel, and say to them, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has been seen by me, and has said, Truly I have taken up your cause, because of what is done to you in Egypt
17
And I have said, I will take you up out of the sorrows of Egypt into the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, into a land flowing with milk and honey.
18
And they will give ear to your voice: and you, with the chiefs of Israel, will go to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and say to him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has come to us: let us then go three days' journey into the waste land to make an offering to the Lord our God.
19
And I am certain that the king of Egypt will not let you go without being forced.
20
But I will put out my hand and overcome Egypt with all the wonders which I will do among them: and after that he will let you go.
21
And I will give this people grace in the eyes of the Egyptians, so that when you go out you will go out with your hands full.
22
For every woman will get from her neighbour and from the woman living in her house, ornaments of silver and gold, and clothing and you will put them on your sons and your daughters you will take the best of their goods from the Egyptians.

Exodus 4


1
And Moses, answering, said, It is certain that they will not have faith in me or give ear to my voice for they will say, You have not seen the Lord.
2
And the Lord said to him, What is that in your hand? And he said, A rod.
3
And he said, Put it down on the earth. And he put it down on the earth and it became a snake and Moses went running from it.
4
And the Lord said to Moses, Put out your hand and take it by the tail: (and he put out his hand and took a grip of it and it became a rod in his hand:)
5
So that they may be certain that the Lord, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has been seen by you.
6
Then the Lord said to him again, Put your hand inside your clothing. And he put his hand inside his robe: and when he took it out it was like the hand of a leper, as white as snow.
7
And he said, Put your hand inside your robe again. (And he put his hand into his robe again, and when he took it out he saw that it had become like his other flesh.)
8
And if they do not have faith in you or give ear to the voice of the first sign, they will have faith in the second sign.
9
And if they have no faith even in these two signs and will not give ear to your voice, then you are to take the water of the Nile and put it on the dry land: and the water you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land.
10
And Moses said to the Lord, O Lord, I am not a man of words I have never been so, and am not now, even after what you have said to your servant: for talking is hard for me, and I am slow of tongue.
11
And the Lord said to him, Who has made man's mouth? who takes away a man's voice or hearing, or makes him seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
12
So go now, and I will be with your mouth, teaching you what to say.
13
And he said, O Lord, send, if you will, by the hand of anyone whom it seems good to you to send.
14
And the Lord was angry with Moses, and said, Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? To my knowledge he is good at talking. And now he is coming out to you: and when he sees you he will be glad in his heart.
15
Let him give ear to your voice, and you will put my words in his mouth and I will be with your mouth and with his, teaching you what you have to do.
16
And he will do the talking for you to the people: he will be to you as a mouth and you will be to him as God.
17
And take in your hand this rod with which you will do the signs.
18
And Moses went back to Jethro, his father-in-law, and said to him, Let me go back now to my relations in Egypt and see if they are still living. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
19
And the Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go back to Egypt, for all the men are dead who were attempting to take your life.
20
And Moses took his wife and his sons and put them on an ass and went back to the land of Egypt: and he took the rod of God in his hand.
21
And the Lord said to Moses, When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have given you power to do: but I will make his heart hard and he will not let the people go.
22
And you are to say to Pharaoh, The Lord says, Israel is the first of my sons:
23
And I said to you, Let my son go, so that he may give me worship and you did not let him go: so now I will put the first of your sons to death.
24
Now on the journey, at the night's resting-place, the Lord came in his way and would have put him to death.
25
Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cutting off the skin of her son's private parts, and touching his feet with it, she said, Truly you are a husband of blood to me.
26
So he let him go. Then she said, You are a husband of blood because of the circumcision.
27
And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the waste land and you will see Moses. So he went and came across Moses at the mountain of God, and gave him a kiss.
28
And Moses gave Aaron an account of all the words of the Lord which he had sent him to say, and of all the signs which he had given him orders to do.
29
Then Moses and Aaron went and got together all the chiefs of the children of Israel:
30
And Aaron said to them all the words the Lord had said to Moses, and did the signs before all the people.
31
And the people had faith in them and hearing that the Lord had taken up the cause of the children of Israel and had seen their troubles, with bent heads they gave him worship.

Exodus 5


1
And after that, Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and said, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, Let my people go so that they may keep a feast to me in the waste land.
2
And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, to whose voice I am to give ear and let Israel go? I have no knowledge of the Lord and I will not let Israel go.
3
And they said, The God of the Hebrews has come to us: let us then go three days' journey into the waste land to make an offering to the Lord our God, so that he may not send death on us by disease or the sword.
4
And the king of Egypt said to them, Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people away from their work? get back to your work.
5
And Pharaoh said, Truly, the people of the land are increasing in number, and you are keeping them back from their work.
6
The same day Pharaoh gave orders to the overseers and those who were responsible for the work, saying,
7
Give these men no more dry stems for their brick-making as you have been doing let them go and get the material for themselves.
8
But see that they make the same number of bricks as before, and no less: for they have no love for work and so they are crying out and saying, Let us go and make an offering to our God.
9
Give the men harder work, and see that they do it let them not give attention to false words.
10
And the overseers of the people and their responsible men went out and said to the people, Pharaoh says, I will give you no more dry stems.
11
Go yourselves and get dry stems wherever you are able for your work is not to be any less.
12
So the people were sent in all directions through the land of Egypt to get dry grass for stems.
13
And the overseers went on driving them and saying, Do your full day's work as before when there were dry stems for you.
14
And the responsible men of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's overseers had put over them, were given blows, and they said to them, Why have you not done your regular work, in making bricks as before?
15
Then the responsible men of the children of Israel came to Pharaoh, protesting and saying, Why are you acting in this way to your servants?
16
They give us no dry stems and they say to us, Make bricks: and they give your servants blows but it is your people who are in the wrong.
17
But he said, You have no love for work: that is why you say, Let us go and make an offering to the Lord.
18
Go now, get back to your work no dry stems will be given to you, but you are to make the full number of bricks.
19
Then the responsible men of the children of Israel saw that they were purposing evil when they said, The number of bricks which you have to make every day will be no less than before.
20
And they came face to face with Moses and Aaron, who were in their way when they came out from Pharaoh:
21
And they said to them, May the Lord take note of you and be your judge for you have given Pharaoh and his servants a bad opinion of us, putting a sword in their hands for our destruction.
22
And Moses went back to the Lord and said, Lord, why have you done evil to this people? why have you sent me?
23
For from the time when I came to Pharaoh to put your words before him, he has done evil to this people, and you have given them no help.

Matthew 15

29-39
29
And Jesus went from there and came to the sea of Galilee and he went up into the mountain, and took his seat there.
30
And there came to him great numbers of people having with them those who were broken in body, or blind, or without voice, or wounded, or ill in any way, and a number of others they put them down at his feet and he made them well:
31
So that the people were full of wonder when they saw that those who had no voice were talking, the feeble were made strong, those whose bodies were broken had the power of walking, and the blind were able to see: and they gave glory to the God of Israel.
32
And Jesus got his disciples together and said, I have pity for the people, because they have now been with me three days and have no food: and I will not send them away without food, or they will have no strength for the journey.
33
And the disciples say to him, How may we get enough bread in a waste place, to give food to such a number of people?
34
And Jesus says to them, How much bread have you? And they said, Seven cakes, and some small fishes.
35
Then he gave an order to the people to be seated on the earth,
36
And he took the seven cakes of bread and the fishes and having given praise, he gave the broken bread to the disciples, and the disciples gave it to the people.
37
And they all took food, and had enough and they took up of the broken bits, seven baskets full.
38
And there were four thousand men who took food, together with women and children.
39
And when he had sent the people away, he got into the boat, and came into the country of Magadan.

Matthew 16

1-12
1
And the Pharisees and Sadducees came and, testing him, made a request to him to give them a sign from heaven.
2
But in answer he said to them, At nightfall you say, The weather will be good, for the sky is red.
3
And in the morning, The weather will be bad today, for the sky is red and angry. You are able to see the face of heaven, but not the signs of the times.
4
An evil and false generation is searching after a sign and no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah. And he went away from them.
5
And when the disciples came to the other side they had not taken thought to get bread.
6
And Jesus said to them, Take care to have nothing to do with the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
7
And they were reasoning among themselves, saying, We took no bread.
8
And Jesus, seeing it, said, O you of little faith, why are you reasoning among yourselves, because you have no bread?
9
Do you still not see, or keep in mind the five cakes of bread of the five thousand, and the number of baskets you took up?
10
Or the seven cakes of bread of the four thousand, and the number of baskets you took up?
11
How is it that you do not see that I was not talking to you about bread, but about keeping away from the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?
12
Then they saw that it was not the leaven of bread which he had in mind, but the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
