6:2 God also said to Moses, "I am the Lord .
6:3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the Lord I did not make myself known to them.
6:4 I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, where they lived as aliens.
6:5 Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, and I have remembered my covenant.
6:6 "Therefore, say to the Israelites: 'I am the Lord , and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
6:7 I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
6:8 And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the Lord .' "
1 Peter 1:13-23
1:14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
1:15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
1:16 for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."
1:17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.
1:18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,
1:19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
1:20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
1:21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
1:22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.
1:23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
