Russell Stendal Teaches on Exodus Chapters 5-7 [Spanish]
Exodus 5 (JUB)
1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go that they may celebrate a feast unto me in the wilderness.
2 And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should hearken to his voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.
3 And they said, The God of the Hebrews has found us; therefore we shall go three days’ journey into the desert and sacrifice unto the Lord our God lest he encounter us with pestilence or with the sword.
4 Then the king of Egypt said unto them, Why do ye, Moses and Aaron, keep the people from their works? Go unto your burdens.
5 Pharaoh also said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them cease from their burdens.
6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying,
7 Ye shall no longer give the people firewood to make brick as until now; let them go and gather firewood for themselves.
8 And the tally of the bricks which they made before, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish any of it; for they are idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.
9 Let more work be laid upon them that they may occupy themselves with it; and let them not regard words of deception.
10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you firewood.
11 Go ye, gather firewood where ye can find it; yet none of your work shall be diminished.
12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather brush for firewood.
13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily quotas, as when there was firewood.
14 And the officers of the sons of Israel, whom Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and they demanded, Why have ye not fulfilled your quotas in making brick both yesterday and today, as until now?
15 Then the officers of the sons of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Why doest thou deal thus with thy slaves?
16 There is no firewood given unto thy slaves, yet they say to us, Make brick. Behold, thy slaves are beaten; and thy people sin.
17 And he replied, Ye are idle, ye are idle, therefore ye say, Let us go and sacrifice unto the Lord.
18 Go therefore now and work, for no firewood shall be given you, yet ye shall deliver the tally of bricks.
19 Then the officers of the sons of Israel saw that they were afflicted after it was said, Ye shall not diminish any from the bricks of your daily quota.
20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh;
21 and they said unto them, The Lord look upon you and judge because ye have made our savour to be a stench before Pharaoh and his slaves, putting a sword in their hands to slay us.
22 Then Moses returned unto the Lord and said, Lord, why hast thou so afflicted this people? Why is it that thou hast sent me?
23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he has afflicted this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
Exodus 6 (JUB)
1 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now thou shalt see what I will do to Pharaoh; for with a strong hand he must let them go, and with a strong hand he shall drive them out of his land.
2 And God spoke unto Moses and said unto him, I am the Lord;
3 and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name the Lord (YHWH) I was not known to them.
4 And I also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, in which they were strangers.
5 And likewise I have heard the groaning of the sons of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered my covenant.
6 Therefore say unto the sons of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will free you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm and with great judgments.
7 And I will take you as my people, and I will be your God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning which I raised my hand to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it unto you for a heritage: I am the Lord.
9 In this manner Moses spoke unto the sons of Israel, but they did not hearken unto Moses because of their anguish of spirit and cruel bondage.
10 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh, king of Egypt, that he let the sons of Israel go out of his land.
12 And Moses answered before the Lord, saying, Behold, the sons of Israel do not hearken unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, seeing I am of uncircumcised lips?
13 Then the Lord spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron and gave them a commandment unto the sons of Israel and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
14 These are the heads of their fathers’ families: The sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel: Enoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi; these are the families of Reuben.
15 And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Saul the son of a Canaanite woman; these are the families of Simeon.
16 And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their lineages: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were one hundred thirty-seven years.
17 The sons of Gershon: Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.
18 And the sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred thirty-three years.
19 And the sons of Merari: Mahali and Mushi; these are the families of Levi according to their lineages.
20 And Amram took Jochebed, his father’s sister to wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were one hundred thirty-seven years.
21 And the sons of Izhar: Korah, Nepheg, and Zichri.
22 And the sons of Uzziel: Mishael, Elzaphan, and Zithri.
23 And Aaron took Elizabeth, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Naashon, to wife; and she bore him Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
24 And the sons of Korah: Assir, Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korhites.
25 And Eleazar, Aaron’s son, took one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.
26 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Bring out the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their hosts.
27 These are those who spoke to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to bring out the sons of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.
28 And it came to pass on the day when the Lord spoke unto Moses in the land of Egypt,
29 that the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, I am the Lord; speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.
30 And Moses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
Exodus 7 (JUB)
1 The Lord said unto Moses, See, I have constituted thee as god unto Pharaoh; and Aaron, thy brother, shall be thy prophet.
2 Thou shalt speak all that I shall command thee; and Aaron, thy brother, shall speak unto Pharaoh that he send the sons of Israel out of his land.
3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
4 And Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, but I shall lay my hand upon Egypt and bring forth my hosts, and my people, the sons of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord when I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from among them.
6 And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, so did they.
7 And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke unto Pharaoh.
8 And the Lord spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
9 If Pharaoh shall answer you, saying, Show a miracle, then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod and cast it before Pharaoh, that it shall become a dragon.
10 So Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did as the Lord had commanded; and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his slaves, and it became a dragon.
11 Then Pharaoh also called wise men and sorcerers; now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their fire worship.
12 For each one cast down his rod, and they became dragons; but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.
13 And Pharaoh’s heart became hard, that he hearkened not unto them as the Lord had said.
14 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is become grievous, for he refuses to let the people go.
15 Go unto Pharaoh in the morning; behold, he goes out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink before him and take in thy hand the rod which was turned to a serpent
16 and say unto him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews has sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness; and, behold, until now thou hast not desired to hear.
17 Thus hath the Lord said, In this thou shalt know that I am the Lord; behold, I will smite with the rod that is in my hand the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
18 And the fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink the water of the river.
19 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their rivers, upon their streams, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.
20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and lifting up the rod, he smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his slaves; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.
21 And the fish that were in the river died; and the river became corrupted, so that the Egyptians could not drink the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
22 And the magicians of Egypt did the same with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart hardened itself, and he did not hearken unto them, as the Lord had said.
23 And Pharaoh turned and returned to his house, and even with all this he did not take this to heart.
24 And in all Egypt they dug wells round about the river for water to drink, for they could not drink of the water of the river.
25 And seven days were fulfilled after the Lord had smitten the river.
