Therefore they did set over luem taskmasters to atflict them with their burdens, aud they made their lives bitter with hard bondage.

Auu God heard llieir gruauings, und God temembered hit Covenant with Abraham, wuu Isaac, aud with Jajoo. And Gad looked upon the Children ot Israel, and God had respect unto them. And the Cord spake uute Moses and Unto Aaron : Behold, the cry ol the Children ol Israel is come unto ma: and 1 have also seen the oppression wherewith th Egyptians oppress them, and 1 have remembered my Covenant. ^.j,. Come now, thereiore, aud 1 will send ye unto Pnaraoh, that ye may bring lorth my people, the Children ot Israel, out ol Egypt.

And ye shall know that 1 WL am the L nd your God, w no brmgcth you out lrorn under the burdeus ol the Eg) ptians. ^ And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians; aud the people leared the Lord, and believed tuo Lord and nis servant .vloses.
