These are the names of the children of
, whiche came into
with Iacob, euery ma came with his housholde:
2 Ruben, Simeon, Leui, and Iuda:
3 Isachar, Zabulon, and Beniamin,
4 Dan and Nephthali, Gad & Aser.
5 All the soules that came out of the line of Iacob, were seuentie:
6 But Ioseph was in
alredy, & Ioseph dyed, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
7 And the children of
were fruitfull, encreased, multiplied, & waxed exceedyng myghtie, and the
lande was full of them.
8 But there arose vp a newe kyng in
, which knewe not Ioseph:
9 And he sayde vnto his folke, Beholde, the people of the chyldren of
are greater and myghtier then we.
10 Come on, let vs deale wyttyly with the, lest they multiplie, & lest it
come to passe, that if there be any warre, they ioyne them selues vnto our
enemies, & fight agaynst vs, & so get them vp out of ye land.
11 Therfore dyd they set taske maisters ouer them, to kepe the vnder with
burthens: And they buylt vnto Pharao treasure cities, Pithom & Raamses.
12 But the more they vexed them, the more they multiplied and grewe: so that
they abhorred at the syght of the chyldren of
13 And the Egyptians helde the children of
in bondage without mercie,
14 And they made their lyues bytter vnto them in that cruell bondage, in claye,
and bricke, and all maner of worke in the fielde: for all their bondage wherein
they serued them was ful of tirannie.
15 And the kyng of Egypt spake vnto the mydwyfes of the Hebrues women: (of which
the one was named Siphrah and the other Puah) and sayde:
16 When ye do the office of a mydwyfe to the women of the Hebrues, and see in
the birth tyme that it is a boy, ye shall kyl it: but if it be a daughter, it
17 Notwithstanding, the mydwifes feared God, and dyd not as the kyng of
commaunded them, but saued the men chyldren.
18 And the kyng of
called for the mydwyfes, and sayde vnto them: why haue ye dealt on this maner,
and haue saued the men chyldren?
19 And the mydwyfes aunswered Pharao: that ye Hebrues women are not as the women
: for they are more liuely women, and are deliuered yer the mydwyfes come at
20 And God dealt well therefore with the mydwyfes: and the people multiplied and
waxed very myghtie.
21 And it came to passe, that because the midwifes feared God, he made them
22 And Pharao charged all his people, saying: All the men chyldren that are
borne, cast into the ryuer, and saue the mayde chyldren alyue.
1 And there went a man out of the house of Leui, and toke to wyfe a daughter of
2 And the wyfe conceaued and bare a sonne: and when she sawe that it was a
proper childe, she hyd him three monethes.
3 And when she coulde no longer hyde hym, she toke a basket [made] of bull
russhes, and dawbed it with slyme and pitche, and layed the chylde therein, and
put it in the flagges by the riuers brinke
4 And his sister stoode a farre of, to wit what woulde come of it.
5 And the daughter of Pharao came downe to wasshe her selfe in the ryuer, and
her maydens walked along by the ryuers syde: And when she sawe the basket among
the flagges, she sent her mayde to fetch it.
6 And when she had opened it, she sawe it was a chylde: and beholde, the babe
wept. And she had compassion on it, and sayde: it is one of the Hebrues chyldren.
7 Then sayde his sister to Pharaos daughter: shall I go and call to thee a nurse
of the Hebrues women, to nurse thee the chylde?
8 Pharaos daughter aunswered her: go. And the mayde ranne and called the chyldes
9 To whom Pharaos daughter sayde: Take this chylde away, and nurse it for me,
and I wyll rewarde thee. And the woman toke the chylde, & nursed it vp.
10 The chylde grewe, and she brought it vnto Pharaos daughter, and it was made
her sonne. And she called ye name of it Moyses: because [sayde she] I toke hym
out of the water.
11 And in those dayes, when Moyses was waxed great, he went out vnto his
brethren, & loked on their burdens, and spyed an Egyptian smytyng an Hebrue
which was one of his brethren.
12 And he loked rounde about, and when he sawe no man by, he slewe the Egyptian,
and hyd hym in the sande.
13 And when he was gone out another day, beholde, two men of the Hebrues stroue
together: And he saide vnto him that dyd the wrong, Wherefore smytest thou thy
14 He aunswered: Who made thee a man of aucthoritie and a iudge ouer vs?
intendest thou to kyll me, as thou kylledst the Egyptian? And Moyses feared and
sayde: Of a suretie this thyng is knowen.
15 And Pharao heard of it, and went about to slaye Moyses. And Moyses fleyng
from the face of Pharao, dwelt in the lande of Madian: and he sate downe by the
16 The priest of Madian had vij. daughters, which came and drewe [water] and
filled the troughes for to water their fathers sheepe.
17 And the shepheardes came and droue them away: but Moyses stoode vp and helped
them, and watred their sheepe.
18 And when they came to Raguel their father, he sayde: Howe came it to passe
that ye are come so soone to day?
19 And they aunswered: A man of
deliuered vs from the handes of the shepheardes, and so drewe vs water, and
watered the sheepe.
20 He saide vnto his daughters: & where is he? why haue ye so left the man?
Call hym, that he may eate bread.
21 And Moyses was content to dwell with the man: & he gaue Moyses Sephora
22 Which bare him a sonne, and he called his name Gershom: For he saide, I haue
ben a straunger in a straunge land.
23 And in processe of tyme the kyng of
dyed, and the chyldren of
syghed by the reason of bondage, and cryed.
24 And their complaynt came vp vnto God from the bondage: and God heard their
mone, and God remembred his couenaunt with Abraham, Isahac, and Iacob.
25 And God loked vpon the chyldren of
, and God had respecte vnto them.
1 Moyses kept the sheepe of Iethro his father in lawe, priest of Madian: and he
droue the flocke to the backesyde of the desert, aud came to the mountayne of
2 And the angell of the Lorde appeared vnto hym in a flambe of fire out of the
middes of a busshe: And he loked, and beholde the busshe burned with fire, and
the busshe was not consumed.
3 Therfore Moyses sayde: I wyll go nowe and see this great syght, howe it
commeth that the busshe burneth not.
4 And when ye Lorde sawe that he came for to see, God called vnto him out of the
middes of the busshe, & sayde: Moyses, Moyses? And he answered, here am
5 And he said: Draw not nigh hither, put thy shoes of thy feete, for the place
whereon thou standest, is holy ground.
6 And he sayde: I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of
Isahac, and the God of Iacob. And Moyses hid his face, for he was afrayde to
loke vpon God.
7 And the Lorde saide: I haue surely seene the trouble of my people which are in
Egypt, and haue heard their crie from the face of their taske maisters: for I
knowe their sorowes,
8 And am come downe to deliuer the out of the hande of the Egyptians, and to
bryng them out of that lande, vnto a good lande & a large, vnto a lande that
floweth with mylke and hony, euen vnto the place of the Chanaanites, and
Hethites, and Amorites, and Pherizites, and Heuites, and of the Iebusites.
9 Nowe therfore beholde the complaint of the chyldren of
is come vnto me: and I haue also seene the oppressio wherwith ye Egyptians
10 Come thou therfore, and I wyll sende thee vnto Pharao, that thou mayest bryng
my people the chyldren of
11 And Moyses saide vnto God: what am I to go vnto Pharao, and to bryng the
12 And he aunswered. For I wyll be with thee: and this shalbe a token vnto thee
that I haue sent thee, After that thou hast brought the people out of
, ye shall serue God vpon this moutayne.
13 And Moyses sayde vnto God: behold [when] I come vnto the chyldren of
, and shall say vnto them: the God of your fathers hath sent me vnto you. And if
they saye vnto me, what is thy name? what answere shall I geue the?
14 And God aunswered Moyses: I am that I am. And he said: This shalt thou say
vnto the chyldren of
, I am, hath sent me vnto you.
15 And God spake further vnto Moyses, Thus shalt thou say vnto the chyldren of
Israel: The Lorde God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isahac,
and the God of Iacob hath sent me vnto you: This is my name for euer, and this
is my memoriall into generation and generation.
16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and thou shalt saye vnto them,
The Lorde God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isahac, and the
God of Iacob appeared vnto me, and sayde: In visityng, haue I visited you, and
know that which is done to you in Egypt.
17 And I haue sayde: I wyll bryng you out of the tribulation of
, vnto the land of the Chanaanites, and Hethites, and Amorites, and Pherizites,
and Heuites, and Iebusites, euen into a land which floweth with milke & hony.
18 And they shall heare thy voyce: Then both thou and the elders of
shall go vnto the kyng of
, and say vnto him: The Lord God of the Hebrues hath met with vs, and nowe let
vs go [we beseche thee] three dayes iourney into the wyldernesse, and do
sacrifice vnto the Lorde our God.
19 And I am sure that the king of
wyl not let you go, no not in a mightie hande.
20 And I wyll stretche out my hande, & smyte
with al my wonders whiche I wyll do in the middes therof, and after that he
wyll let you go.
21 And I wyll get this people fauour in the syght of the Egyptians, so that when
ye go, ye shall not go emptie:
22 But a wyfe shall borowe of her neighbour, and of her that soiourneth in her
house, iewels of syluer, and iewels of golde, and rayment: and ye shall put them
on your sonnes and daughters, & shall robbe the Egyptians.
1 Moyses aunswered, and said: See, they wyll not beleue me, nor harken vnto my
voyce: but wyll saye, The Lorde hath not appeared vnto thee.
2 And the Lorde sayde vnto him: What is that [which is] in thine hande? He
aunswered: a rodde.
3 And he sayde: Cast it on the grounde. And he cast it on the grounde, and it
became a serpent: and Moyses fled fro the syght of it.
4 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Put foorth thy hande, and take it by the
tayle. And therefore he put foorth his hande, and caught it: and it became a
rodde in his hande.
5 By this thing shall they beleue, that the Lord God of their fathers, the God
of Abraham, the God of Isahac, & the God of Iacob hath appeared vnto thee.
6 And the Lorde sayde furthermore vnto hym: Thrust thyne hande into thy bosome.
And he thruste his hande into his bosome: and when he toke it out agayne,
beholde his hande was leprous, euen as snowe.
7 And he sayde: Put thine hande into thy bosome againe. And he put his hand into
his bosome agayne: and plucked it out of his bosome, and behold, it was turned
agayne as his [other] fleshe.
8 Therfore yf they wyll not beleue thee, neither heare ye voyce of the first
signes, yet wyll they beleue for the voyce of the seconde signes.
9 But & if they wyl not beleue these two signes, neither hearken vnto thy
voyce: thou shalt take of the water of the riuer and powre it vpon the drye
lande, and the water which thou takest out of the riuer shalbe [turned] into
blood vpon the drye lande.
10 Moyses sayd vnto the Lorde: Oh my Lord, I am neither yesterday nor yer
yesterday a man eloquet, neither sence thou hast spoken vnto thy seruaunt: but I
am slowe mouthed, & slowe tounged.
11 And the Lorde sayd vnto hym: who hath made mans mouth? or who maketh the
dumbe, or deafe, the seyng, or the blynde? Haue not I the Lorde?
12 And nowe go, and I wyll be with thy mouth, and teache thee what thou shalt
13 He said: oh my Lorde, sende I pray thee, by the hande of hym whom thou wylt
14 And the Lorde was angry with Moyses, and sayde: Do not I knowe Aaron thy
brother the Leuite, that he can speake? For lo, he commeth foorth to meete thee:
and when he seeth thee, he wyll be glad in his heart.
15 Therfore thou shalt speake vnto him, and put these wordes in his mouth, and I
wilbe with thy mouth, and with his mouth: and wyll teache you what you ought to
16 And he shalbe thy spokesman vnto the people, and he shalbe [euen] he shalbe
to thee in steade of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him, in steade of God.
17 And thou shalt take this rodde in thy hande, wherewith thou shalt do
18 Therfore Moyses went and returned to Iethro his father in law againe, and
said vnto him: Let me go I pray thee nowe, and turne agayne vnto my brethren
which are in
, and see whether they be yet aliue. And Iethro said to Moyses: go in peace.
19 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses in Madian, Go and returne agayne into
: for all the men are dead whiche went about to kill thee.
20 And Moyses toke his wyfe, and his sonnes, and put them on an asse, and went
: And Moyses toke the rodde of God in his hande.
21 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: When thou art entred and come into
agayne, see that thou do all the wonders before Pharao whiche I haue put in thy
hand: but I wyll hold his heart, & he shal not let the people go.
22 And thou shalt saye vnto Pharao: Thus sayeth the Lorde,
is my sonne [euen] my first borne sonne.
23 And I sayde vnto thee, that thou let my sonne go, that he may serue me. And
if thou refuse to let him go: beholde, I do slay thy sonne [euen] thy first
24 And it came to passe by the way in the Inne that the Lorde met hym, and
woulde haue kylled hym.
25 And Sephora toke a stone, and cut away the foreskin of her sonne, and cast it
at his feete, and sayd: a blooddy husbande art thou vnto me.
26 Then he let him go, and she sayde: a blooddy husbande, because of her
27 Then said the Lorde vnto Aaron: go meete Moyses in the wyldernesse. And he
went and met him in the mounte of God, and kissed him.
28 And Moyses tolde Aaron all the wordes of the Lorde whiche had sent him, and
all the signes whiche he had charged him withall.
29 So went Moyses and Aaron, and gathered all the elders of the chyldren of
30 And Aaron told all the wordes which the Lord had spoken vnto Moyses: and did
ye miracles in the sight of the people.
31 And the people beleued. And when they hearde that the Lorde had visited the
, and had looked vpon their tribulation, they bowed the selues, and worshipped.
1 Moyses and Aaron went in afterward and told Pharao, Thus sayeth the Lorde God
: let my people go, that they maye holde a feast vnto me in the wyldernesse.
2 And Pharao sayde: who is the Lorde that I shoulde heare his voyce, and let
go? I knowe not the Lorde, neyther wyll I let
3 And they sayde, The God of the Hebrewes is called ouer vs: let vs go we pray
thee three dayes iourney into the desert, and do sacrifice vnto the Lorde our
God: lest he smyte vs with pestilence or with the sworde.
4 Then saide the kyng of
vnto them: wherfore do ye, Moyses and Aaron let the people from their workes?
get you vnto your burthens.
5 And Pharao sayde furthermore: beholde, there is much people nowe in the lande,
and you make them leaue theyr burthens.
6 And Pharao comaunded the same day, ye taskmaisters which were amongest the
people and the officers, saying:
7 Ye shall geue the people no more strawe to make brycke withal, as ye did in
tyme passed: let them go and gather them strawe them selues.
8 And the number of bricke which they were wont to make in tyme passed, lay vnto
their charges also, and minishe nothing therof: for they be idell, and therfore
crye, saying: we wyll go, and do sacrifice vnto our God.
9 They must haue more worke layed vpon them, that they may labour therin, and
not regarde vayne wordes.
10 Then went the taskemaisters of the people, and the officers out, and tolde
the people, saying: Thus sayeth Pharao, I wyll geue you no more strawe.
11 Go your selues and gather you straw where ye can finde it: yet shall none of
your labour be minished.
12 And so were the people scattered abrode throughout all ye
, for to gather stubble in steade of strawe.
13 And the taskemaisters hasted them forwarde, saying: fulfyll your worke, your
dayly taskes in their due tyme, as if you had strawe.
14 And the officers of the children of
which Pharaos taskemasters had set ouer them, were beaten. And they sayde vnto
them: wherfore haue ye not fulfilled your taske in makyng of brycke both
yesterday and to day, as well as in tymes past?
15 The officers also of the children of
, came & complayned vnto Pharao, saying: Wherfore dealest thou thus with thy
16 There is no strawe geuen vnto thy seruauntes, and they say vnto vs, make
brycke: and thy seruauntes are beaten, and the fault is thyne owne people.
17 He sayde: you are idle, idle are you: and therfore you say, we will go, and
do sacrifice vnto the Lorde.
18 Go therfore nowe, & worke, and there shall no strawe be geuen you, &
yet shall ye deliuer the whole tale of bricke.
19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in worse
case, after it was sayde, ye shall minishe nothyng of your brycke, of your dayly
taske in due tyme:
20 And they met Moyses and Aaron, which stoode in their way as they came out
21 And saide vnto them: The Lorde looke vpon you & iudge you, which hath
made the sauour of vs to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharao, and in the eyes of
his seruauntes, and haue put a sworde in their hande to slay vs.
22 Moyses returned vnto the Lorde, and sayd: Lorde, wherfore hast thou so euyll
intreated this people? And wherfore hast thou sent me?
23 For since I came to Pharao to speake in thy name, he hath fared foule with
this folke, and yet thou hast not deliuered thy people at all.
1 Then the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Nowe shalt thou see what I wyll do vnto
Pharao: for in a mightie hande shal he let them go, and in a mightie hande shall
he dryue them out of his lande.
2 And God spake vnto Moyses, and said vnto him: I am Iehouah.
3 I appeared vnto Abraham, Isahac, and Iacob as an almightie God: but in my name
Iehouah was I not knowen vnto them.
4 Moreouer I made a couenaunt with them, to geue them the lande of Chanaan, the
land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were straungers.
5 And therefore I haue also heard the groning of the childre of
, whom the Egyptians kepe in bondage, and haue remembred my couenaunt.
6 Wherfore say vnto the children of Israel: I am Iehouah, I wil bryng you out
from the burthens of the Egyptians, and will ryd you out of their bondage, and
will deliuer you in a stretched out arme, and in great iudgementes.
7 And I will take you for my people, and wilbe to you a God: And ye shall knowe
that I am the Lord your God which bring you out from the burthens of the
8 And I will bryng you into the lande, concerning the whiche I did lift vp my
hand to geue it vnto Abraham, Isahac, and Iacob, and wyll geue it vnto you for a
possession: [for] I am Iehouah.
9 And Moyses tolde the children of
euen so: but they hearkened not vnto Moyses for anguishe of spirite and for
10 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
11 Go in, and speake vnto Pharao king of Egypt, that he let the children of
Israel go out of his lande.
12 And Moyses spake before the Lorde, saying: beholde, the children of
hearken not vnto me: howe then shall Pharao heare me, whiche am of
13 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses and vnto Aaron, & gaue them a charge
concerning the chyldren of

Saul the sonne of the Chanaanitishe woman: these are the kinredes of Simeon.
16 These also are the names of the chyldren of Leui in their generations: Gerson,

whiche bare hym Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
24 The chyldren of Corah: Assir, and Elcanah, and Abiasaph: these are the
kinredes of the Corahites.
25 Eleazar Aarons sonne, toke him one of the daughters of Putiel to wyfe, whiche
bare hym Phinces: and these are the principal fathers of the Leuites throughout
26 This is that Aaron and Moyses to whom the Lorde sayd: Leade the children of
out of the lande of

27 These are that Moyses and Aaron, which spake to Pharao king of
, that they might bryng the chyldren of
28 And in the day when the Lorde spake vnto Moyses in the lande of
29 He spake vnto hym, saying: I am the Lorde: speake thou vnto Pharao the king
all that I say vnto thee.
30 And Moyses sayde before the Lorde: beholde, I am of vncircumcized lippes,
& how shall Pharao geue me audience?
1 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: behold, I haue made thee Pharaos God: and
Aaron thy brother shalbe thy prophete.
2 Thou shalt speake all that I commaunde thee, and Aaron thy brother shall
speake vnto Pharao, that he sende the children of
out of his lande.
3 And I will harden Pharaos heart, and multiplie my miracles & my wonders in
the lande of

5 And the Egyptians shall knowe that I am the Lord, when I stretch foorth my

6 Moyses and Aaron did as the Lord commaunded them, [euen] so did they.
7 Moyses was fourescore yere olde, and Aaron fourescore and three, when they
spake vnto Pharao.
8 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses and Aaron, saying:
9 If Pharao speake vnto you, saying, shewe a miracle for you: thou shalt say
vnto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharao, that it may be a serpent.
10 Then went Moyses and Aaron in vnto Pharao, and dyd euen as the Lorde had
commaunded: and Aaron caste foorth his rodde before Pharao, and before his
seruauntes, and it [turned] to a serpent.
11 Then Pharao called for the wyse men, and enchaunters: and those sorcerers of
dyd in like maner with their sorcerie.
12 For they cast downe euery man his rod, and they [turned] to serpentes: but
Aarons rodde did eate vp their roddes.
13 And he helde Pharaos heart that he hearkened not vnto them, euen as the Lorde
14 The Lorde also sayde vnto Moyses: Pharaos heart is hardened, he refuseth to
let the people go.
15 Get thee vnto Pharao in the morning, loe, he wyll come vnto the water, and
thou shalt stand vpo the ryuers brincke agaynst he come: and the rodde whiche
was turned to a serpent, shalt thou take in thyne hande:
16 And thou shalt say vnto hym: the Lorde God of the Hebrewes hath sent me vnto
thee, saying: Let my people go, that they may serue me in the wyldernesse: and
beholde, hytherto thou wouldest not heare.
17 Thus sayeth the Lord, In this thou shalt knowe that I am the Lorde: beholde,
I wyll smyte with the rodde that is in my hande, the waters whiche are in the
ryuers, and they shalbe turned to blood.
18 And the fishe that is in the riuer, shall dye: and the ryuer shall corrupt,
and it shall greeue the Egyptians to drinke of the water of the ryuer.
19 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses: say vnto Aaron, Take thy rodde, and stretche
out thyne hand ouer the waters of Egypt, ouer their streames, ouer their riuers
and pondes, and all pooles of water whiche they haue, that they may be blood,
and that there may be blood throughout all ye lande of Egypt, both in [vesselles]
of wood, & also of stone.
20 And Moyses and Aaron did euen as the Lorde commaunded: and he lyfte vp the
rodde, and smote the waters that were in the ryuer in the sight of Pharao, and
in the sight of his seruauntes: and all the water that was in the ryuer, turned

Egyptians coulde not drinke of the waters of the ryuer, and there was blood

coulde not drinke of the water of the ryuer.
25 And it continued seuen dayes after that the Lorde had smyten the ryuer.
1 The Lorde spake vnto Moyses, go vnto Pharao & tell hym, Thus sayeth the
Lord: Let my people go, that they may serue me.
2 And if thou refuse to let them go, beholde, I wyll smyte all thy borders with

that he maye take away the frogges from me, and from my people: and I will let
the people go, that they may do sacrifice vnto the Lorde.
9 And Moyses sayde vnto Pharao: glory herein because of me, and [appoynt] when I
shall pray for thee, and for thy seruauntes, and for thy people to dryue away
the frogges from thee and thy houses: and they may remayne but in the ryuer
10 He sayd: to morowe. And he sayde, euen as thou hast said: that thou mayest
knowe that there is none like vnto the Lorde our God.
11 And so the frogges shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, from thy
seruauntes, and from thy people: and shall remayne in the ryuer onlye.
12 Moyses and Aaron went out from Pharao, and Moyses cryed vnto the Lorde, as
touching the frogges whiche he had brought against Pharao.
13 And the Lorde dyd accordyng to the saying of Moyses: and the frogges dyed out
of the houses, out of the courtes and fieldes.
14 And they gathered them together vpon heapes, and the lande had an euill smell
15 But when Pharao sawe that he had rest geuen him, he hardened his heart, and
hearkened not vnto them, as the Lorde had sayde.
16 And the Lord sayd vnto Moses, Say vnto Aaron: Stretche out thy rod, and smyte
the dust of the lande, that it may be [turned] to lyce throughout all the lande
17 And they did so: for Aaron stretched out his hande with his rodde, and smote
the dust of the earth, whiche turned to lyce in man and beast: so that all the
dust of the lande [turned] to lyce throughout all the lande of
18 And the enchaunters assayed likewise with their enchauntmetes to bring foorth
lyce, but they coulde not: and the lyce were both vpon men & beastes.
19 Then said the enchaunters vnto Pharao: this is the finger of God. And Pharaos
heart remayned obstinate, and he hearkened not vnto them, euen as the Lorde had
20 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: ryse vp early in the mornyng, and stand
before Pharao, lo, he wyll come foorth vnto the water, and thou shalt say vnto
him, Thus sayeth the Lorde: Let my people go that they may serue me.
21 Els if thou wylt not let my people go, behold, I will send all maner of flyes
both vpon thee and thy seruauntes, and thy people, & into thy houses: and
the houses of the Egyptians shalbe full of flyes, and the ground wheron they
22 And the
where my people are, will I cause to be wonderfull in that day, so that there
shal no flyes be there: wherby thou shalt know that I am the Lorde in the
myddest of the earth.
23 And I will put a diuision betweene my people and thine: and euen to morowe
shall this miracle be done.
24 And the Lord dyd euen so, & there came an intollerable swarme of flyes
into the house of Pharao, and into his seruauntes houses, and into all the
: and the land was corrupt with these flyes.
25 And Pharao called for Moyses and Aaron, and sayd: Go, and do sacrifice vnto
your God in this lande.
26 And Moyses aunswered, It is not meete that we so do: for we must offer vnto
the Lorde our God, that [which is] an abhomination vnto the Egyptians. Lo, if we
sacrifice that which is an abhomination vnto the Egyptians before theyr eyes,
wyl they not stone vs?
27 We wyll go three dayes iourney into the desert, and sacrifice vnto the Lorde
our God, as he hath comaunded vs.
28 And Pharao sayd: I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice vnto the Lorde your
God in the wyldernesse, but go not farre away: pray for me.
29 And Moyses sayd, beholde, I will go out from thee, and pray vnto the Lord,
that the flyes may depart from Pharao, and from his seruauntes, and from his
people to morowe: but let Pharao from hence foorth deale deceiptfully no more,
that he wyll not let the people go, to sacrifice vnto the Lorde:
30 And Moyses went out from Pharao, and prayed vnto the Lorde.
31 And the Lorde did accordyng to the saying of Moyses: and the flyes departed
from Pharao, and from his seruauntes, and from his people: and there remayned
32 And Pharao hardened his heart once more at this time, and dyd not let the
1 The Lorde said vnto Moyses, go in vnto Pharao, and thou shalt tell hym, Thus
sayeth the Lorde God of the Hebrues: Let my people go, that they may serue me.
2 If thou refuse to let them go, and wylt holde them styll,
3 Beholde, the hande of the Lorde is vpon thy flocke which is in the fielde,
[for] vpon Horses, vpon asses, vpon camelles, vpon oxen, and vpon sheepe, there
shalbe a mightie great morayne.
4 And the Lorde shall do wonderfully betweene the beastes of
, and the beastes of
, so that there shall nothyng dye of all that pertayneth to the children of
5 And the Lorde appoynted a tyme, saying: to morowe the Lorde shall finishe this
worde in the lande.
6 And the Lorde dyd that thyng on the morowe, and all the cattell of
dyed: but of the cattell of the children of
, dyed not one.
7 And Pharao sent, and beholde, there was not one of the cattell of the
Israelites dead: And the heart of Pharao hardened, and he did not let the people
8 And the Lord said vnto Moyses and Aaron: take your handes full of asshes out
of ye furnace, & Moyses shal sprinckle it vp into the ayre in ye sight of
9 And it shalbe dust in all the lande of
, and shalbe swelling sores with blaynes both on man & beast throughout all
the lande of
10 And they toke asshes out of the furnace, and stoode before Pharao: and Moyses
sprinkled it vp into the ayre, and there were swellyng sores with blaynes, both
in men and in beastes:
11 And the sorcerers could not stande before Moyses because of the blaynes: for
there were botches vpon the enchaunters, and vpon al the Egyptians.
12 And the Lorde hardened the heart of Pharao, and he hearkened not vnto them,
as ye Lord had said vnto Moyses.
13 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: rise vp early in the morning, and stande
before Pharao, and thou shalt tell him, Thus sayeth the Lorde God of the Hebrues:
Let my people go, that they may serue me:
14 Or els I wyll at this tyme sende all my plagues vpon thine heart, and vpon
thy seruauntes, and on thy people, that thou mayest knowe that there is none
lyke me in all the earth.
15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smyte thee and thy people with
pestilence, and thou shalt peryshe from the earth.
16 And in very deede for this cause haue I kept thee, for to shewe thee my
power, and that my name may be declared throughout all the worlde.
17 Yet exaltest thou thy selfe agaynst my people, that thou wylt not let them
18 Beholde, to morowe this time I wyl sende downe a mightie great hayle, euen
suche a one as was not in Egypt since the foundation thereof was layde, vnto
19 Sende therfore nowe, and gather thy beastes, & all that thou hast in the
fielde: For vpon all the men and the beastes whiche are founde in the fielde,
and not brought home, shall the hayle fall, and they shall dye.
20 And as many as feared the worde of the Lorde amongest the seruauntes of
Pharao, made their seruauntes and their beastes flee into the houses.
21 But he that regarded not the worde of the Lord, left his seruauntes and his
beastes in the fielde.
22 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: stretche foorth thyne hande vnto heauen,
that there may be hayle in all the lande of
, vpon man, and vpon beastes, and vpon all the hearbes of the fielde throughout
the lande of
23 And Moyses stretched foorth his rod vnto heauen, and the Lord thundred and
hayled, and the fire ranne a long vpon the grounde, and the Lorde hayled in the
24 So there was hayle, and fire mingled with the hayle, so greeuous, and such as
there was none throughout al the
since people inhabited it.
25 And the hayle smote throughout all the lande of
all that was in the fielde, both man & beast: and the hayle smote all the
hearbes of the fielde, and broke all the trees of the fielde.
26 Only in the lande of Gosen where the chyldren of
were, was there no hayle.
27 And Pharao sent and called for Moyses and Aaron, and sayde vnto them, I haue
nowe sinned: the Lorde is righteous, and I & my people are vngodly.
28 Pray ye vnto the Lorde, that these thundringes of God and hayle may be
sufficient, and I will let you go, and ye shall tary no longer.
29 Moyses sayd vnto him: Assoone as I am out of the citie, I wyll spreade abrode
my handes vnto the Lorde, and the thunder shall ceasse, neyther shall there be
any more hayle: that thou mayest knowe howe that the earth is the Lordes.
30 But I knowe that thou and thy seruauntes yet feare not the face of the Lorde
31 And so the flaxe and the barlye were smytten, for the barly was shot vp, and
the flaxe was boulled:
32 But the wheate and the rye were not smytten, for they were late sowen.
33 And Moyses went out of the citie fro Pharao, and spread abrode his handes
vnto the Lorde: and the thunder and hayle ceassed, neyther rayned it vpon the
34 And when Pharao sawe that the rayne, and the hayle, and thunder were ceassed,
he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his seruauntes:
35 And the heart of Pharao was hardened, neyther woulde he let the chyldren of
go, as the Lorde had sayd by the hande of Moyses,
1 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses, go in vnto Pharao: for I haue hardened his
heart, & the heart of his seruauntes, that I might shewe these my signes
2 And that thou tell in the audience of thy sonne, & of thy sonnes sonne
what thinges I haue done in Egypt, and the miracles which I haue done amongest
them: that they may know howe that I am the Lorde.
3 And so Moyses and Aaron came vnto Pharao, and said vnto him, Thus sayeth the
Lord God of the Hebrues: How long wilt thou refuse to submit thy selfe vnto me?
Let my people go, that they may serue me.
4 Or els if thou refuse to let my people go, beholde, to morowe wyll I bryng
greshoppers into thy coastes:
5 And they shall couer the face of the earth, that it can not be seene: and they
shall eate the residue which remayneth vnto you and is escaped from the hayle,
and they shall eate euery greene tree that beareth you fruite in the fielde.
6 And they shall fill thy houses, and all thy seruauntes houses, and the houses
of all the Egyptians, after suche a maner, as neyther thy fathers, nor thy
fathers fathers haue seene since the tyme they were vpon the earth vnto this
day. And he turned him selfe about, and went out from Pharao.
7 And Pharaos seruauntes sayde vnto him: howe long shall he be hurtfull vnto vs?
Let the men go, that they may serue the Lorde their God: knowest thou not yet
8 And Moyses & Aaron were brought againe vnto Pharao, and he sayde vnto
them, Go and serue the Lorde your God: but who are they that shall go?
9 And Moyses aunswered: we will go with our young, and with our olde, yea, and
with our sonnes, & with our daughters, and with our sheepe, and with our
oxen we must go: for we must holde a feast vnto the Lorde.
10 And he said vnto them: Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and
your chyldren: take heede, for ye haue some mischiefe in hande.
11 Nay not so, but go they that are men, and serue the Lorde: for that was your
desire. And they were thrust out of Pharaos presence.
12 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Stretch out thyne hand ouer the lande of
for greshoppers, that they may come vpon the land of
, and eate all the hearbes of the lande, and all that the hayle left behynde.
13 And Moyses stretched foorth his rod ouer the lande of
, and the Lorde brought an east winde vpon the lande all that day, and all that
nyght: and in the morning the east winde brought the greshoppers.
14 And the greshoppers went vp ouer all the lande of
, and remayned in all quarters of
very greeuouslye: before them were there no suche greshoppers, neither after
15 For they couered all the face of the earth, so that the lande was darke, and
they did eate al the hearbes of the land, and all the fruites of the trees
whatsoeuer the hayle had lefte: there was no greene thyng left in the trees
& hearbes of the fielde through al ye land of
16 Therefore Pharao called for Moyses and Aaron in haste, and sayde: I haue
sinned agaynst the Lord your God, and agaynst you:
17 And nowe forgeue me my sinne only this once, and pray vnto the Lord your God
that he may take awaye from me this death only.
18 And [Moyses] went out from Pharao, and prayed vnto the Lorde.
19 And the Lorde turned a myghtie strong west wynde, and it toke awaye the
grashoppers, and cast them into the red sea: so that there was not one
grashopper in all the coastes of
20 And the Lorde hardened Pharaos heart, so that he woulde not let the children
21 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Stretche out thy hande vnto heauen, that
there may be vpon the lande of
darknesse which may be felt.
22 And Moyses stretched foorth his hand vnto heauen: and there was a thicke
darkenesse vpon all the lande of
three dayes long.
23 No man sawe another, neither rose vp from the place where he was by the space
of three dayes: But al the children of
had light where thei dwelled.
24 And Pharao called for Moyses, and sayde, Go, and serue the Lorde: onlye let
your sheepe & your oxen abyde, and let your chyldren go with you.
25 And Moyses sayde: Thou must geue vs also offeringes and burnt offeringes, for
to do sacrifice vnto the Lorde our God.
26 Our cattell also shall go with vs, and there shall not one hoofe be left
behynd, for therof must we take to serue ye Lorde our God: neither do we knowe
with what we must do seruice vnto the Lord vntyll we come thyther.
27 But the Lorde hardened Pharaos heart, and he woulde not let them go.
28 And Pharao sayde vnto hym: Get thee from me, and take heede vnto thy selfe
that thou seest my face no more: for whensoeuer thou commest in my syght, thou
29 And Moyses sayde: Let it be as thou hast sayde, I wyll see thy face no more.
1 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Yet wyl I brynge one plague more vpo Pharao,
, and after that, he wyll let you go hence: when he shal let you go quite, he
shall vtterly dryue you hence.
2 Speake thou therfore in the eares of the people, that euery man borowe of his
neighbour, and euery woman of her neighbour, iewels of syluer, and iewels of
3 And the Lorde shall geue the people fauour in the syght of the Egyptians:
Moreouer, Moyses was a very great man in the lande of
in the syght of Pharaos seruauntes, and in the syght of the people.
4 And Moyses sayde, Thus sayth the Lorde: At mydnyght, wyll I go out into the
myddest of Egypt,
5 And all the first borne in all the land of Egypt shall dye, euen fro the first
borne of Pharao that sytteth on his seate, vnto the first borne of the mayde
seruaunt that is behynde the myll, and all the first gendred of the cattell.
6 And there shalbe a great crye throughout all the lande of
, such as there was neuer none lyke, nor shalbe.
7 But amongst the chyldren of
shal not a dogge moue his tounge, from a man vnto a beast: that ye may knowe
how that the Lord putteth a difference betweene the Egyptians and
8 And these thy seruauntes shal al come downe vnto me, and fall before me, and
say: Get thee out, and all the people that are vnder thee, and then wyll I
depart. And he went out from Pharao with an angry countenaunce.
9 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Pharao shall not heare you, that my wonders
may be multiplied in the
10 And Moyses and Aaron dyd all these wonders before Pharao: And the Lord
hardened Pharaos heart, so that he woulde not let the chyldren of
go out of his lande.
1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses and Aaron in the lande of
2 This moneth shalbe vnto you ye begynnyng of monethes, and the first moneth of
the yere shall it be vnto you.
3 Speake ye vnto all the congregation of
, saying: In the tenth daye of this moneth, euery man take vnto hym a lambe
according to ye house of the fathers, a lambe throughout euery house.
4 If the houshold be to litle for ye lambe, let hym take his neyghbour whiche is
next vnto his house, accordyng to the number of the soules, euery one of you
accordyng to his eatyng shal make your compt for a lambe.
5 And let the lambe of yours be without blemishe, a male of a yere olde [whiche]
ye shal take out from among the sheepe, and from among the goates.
6 And ye shall kepe hym in vntyll the fourteenth day of the same moneth: and
euery assemble of the congregation of
shall kyll hym about euen.
7 And they shall take of the blood and stryke it on the two [syde] postes, and
on the vpper doore post, euen in the houses where they shall eate hym.
8 And they shall eate the fleshe the same nyght, rost with fire, and with
vnleauened bread: and with sowre hearbes they shall eate it.
9 See that ye eate not therof rawe, nor sodden with water, but roste with fire:
the head, feete, and purtenaunce therof.
10 And ye shall let nothyng of it remayne vnto the morning: That which remayneth
of it vntyll the morowe, shall ye burne with fire.
11 Of this maner shall ye eate it: with your loynes girded, and your shooes on
your feete, and your staffe in your hand, and ye shall eate it in haste: for it
is the Lordes passouer.
12 For I wyll passe through the lande of Egypt this same nyght, and wyll smyte
all the first borne of Egypt from man to beast, and vpon all the gods of Egypt I
wyll execute iudgement: I [am] the Lorde.
13 And the blood shalbe vnto you a token in the houses wherin you are: and whe I
see the blood, I wyll passe ouer you, and the plague shall not be vpon you to
destroy you when I smyte the lande of
14 And this day shalbe vnto you a remebraunce: and you shall kepe it an holy
feast vnto the Lorde throughout your generations, ye shall kepe it holy for an
ordinaunce for euer.
15 Seuen dayes shal ye eate vnleauened bread, so that euen the first day ye put
away leauen out of your house: For who so euer eateth leauened bread from the
first daye vntyll the seuenth daye, that soule shalbe rooted out of
16 The first day shalbe a holy conuocation, and the seuenth day shalbe an holy
conuocation vnto you: there shalbe no maner of worke done in the, saue about
that only which euery man must eate, that only may ye do.
17 And ye shal obserue the feast of vnleauened bread: for this same day haue I
brought your armies out of the lande of
, therefore ye shall obserue this day and all your chyldren after you, by an
18 The first moneth, and the fourteenth daye of the moneth, at euen ye shall
eate vnleauened bread, vnto the 21 day of the same moneth at euen againe.
19 Seuen dayes shal ther be no leauened bread founde in your houses: and
whosoeuer eateth leauened bread, that soule shalbe rooted out from the
, whether he be straunger or borne in the lande.
20 Ye shall eate nothyng leauened: but in all your habitations shall ye eate
21 Moyses called for the elders of
, and sayde vnto them: Choose out, and take you to euery housholde of you a
lambe, and kyll the passouer.
22 And take a bunche of Isope and dip it in the blood that is in the bason,
& strike the vpper post of the doore, and the two syde postes, with the
blood that is in the bason: & none of you go out at the doore of his house
vntyll the mornyng.
23 For the Lord wyll passe ouer to smyte the Egyptians: and when he seeth the
blood vpon the vpper doore post and the two syde postes, he wyll passe ouer the
doore, and wyll not suffer the destroyer to come into your house to plague you.
24 Therfore shall ye obserue this thyng for an ordinaunce to thee & thy
sonnes for euer.
25 And when ye be come to the lande whiche the Lorde wyll geue you, accordyng as
he hath promised, ye shall kepe this seruice.
26 And when your chyldren aske you, what maner of seruice is this ye do?
27 Ye shall saye, it is the sacrifice of the Lordes passouer, whiche passed ouer
the houses of the chyldren of
, and he smote the Egyptians, and saued our houses. And the people bowed them
selues, and worshipped.
28 And the chyldren of
went and dyd as the Lorde hadde commaunded Moyses and Aaron, euen so dyd they.
29 And at mydnyght the Lorde smote the first borne in the lande of Egypt, fro
the first borne of Pharao that sate on his seate, vntyl the first borne of the
captiue that was in prison, and all the firste gendred of cattell.
30 And Pharao rose in the nyght, he and his seruauntes, and all the Egyptians,
and there was a great crye in
: for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
31 And he called vnto Moyses and Aaro by nyght, saying: Ryse vp, and get you out
from amongst my people, both you and also the chyldren of
: and go, and serue the Lorde as ye haue sayde.
32 And take your sheepe and your droues with you as ye haue sayde: and depart,
and blesse me.
33 And the Egyptians were fierce vpon the people, that they myght sende them out
of the lande in haste: for they sayde, we be all [but] dead men.
34 And the people toke there dowgh before it was sowred, whiche they had in
store, being bounde in clothes vpon their shoulders.
35 And the chyldren of
dyd accordyng to the saying of Moyses: and they borowed of the Egyptians iewels
of siluer, and iewels of golde, and rayment.
36 And the Lord gaue the people fauour in the syght of the Egyptians, so that
they graunted such thynges as they required: And they robbed the Egyptians.
37 And the children of
toke their iourney from Rameses to Suchoth, sixe hundred thousand men of foote,
38 And a great multitude of sundry other nations wet also with them, and sheepe
and oxen, and exceedyng much cattell.
39 And they baked vnleauened cakes of the dowgh whiche they brought out of
, for it was not sowred: For they were thrust out of
, and could not tary, nether had they prepared for them selues any prouision of
40 The dwellyng of the chyldren of
which they dwelled in
, was foure hundred and thirtie yeres.
41 And when the foure hundred & thirtie yeres were expired, euen the selfe
same day departed al the hoastes of the Lord out of the lande of
42 It is a nyght to be obserued vnto the Lorde, in the whiche he brought them
out of the lande of
: This is that nyght of the Lorde, whiche all the chyldren of
must kepe throughout their generations.
43 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses and Aaron, This is the lawe of passouer:
there shall no straunger eate thereof.
44 But euery seruaunt that is bought for money, after that thou hast circumcised
hym, shall eate therof.
45 A straunger & an hired seruaunt shall not eate therof.
46 In one house shall it be eaten, thou shalt carry none of the flesshe out of
the house, neither shall ye breake a bone therof.
47 All the congregation of
shall obserue it.
48 If a straunger also dwell among you, and wyl holde passouer vnto the Lord,
let him circumcise all that be males, and then let him come and obserue it, and
he shalbe as one that is borne in the lande: for no vncircumcised person shall
49 One maner of lawe shalbe vnto hym that is borne in the lande, and vnto the
straunger that dwelleth among you.
50 And all the chyldren of
dyd as the Lorde commaunded Moyses and Aaron, euen so dyd they.
51 And the selfe same day, dyd the Lorde bryng the chyldren of
out of the lande of
with their armies.
1 And the Lord spake vnto Moyses, saying:
2 Sanctifie vnto me al the first borne, what so euer openeth the wombe among ye
, aswell of man as of beast, for it is mine.
3 And Moyses saide vnto the people: ye ought to remember this day in whiche ye
came out of
out of ye house of bondage: for through a myghtie hande the Lorde brought you
from thence: there shall no leauened bread be eaten.
4 This daye came ye out, in the month Abib
5 When the Lorde hath brought thee into the lande of the Chanaanites, Hethites,
Amorites, Heuites, and Iebusites, which he sware vnto thy fathers that he would
geue thee, a lande wherin mylke and hony floweth: thou shalt kepe this seruice
in this same month.
6 Seuen dayes thou shalt eate vnleauened bread, and in the seuenth daye it is
the feast of the Lorde.
7 Unleauened bread shalbe eaten seuen dayes, and there shal no leauened bread be
seene nor yet eaten with thee in al thy quarters.
8 And thou shalt shewe thy sonne in that day, saying: This is done because of
that whiche the Lorde dyd vnto me when I came out of
9 And it shalbe as a signe vnto thee vppon thyne hande, and as a remembraunce
betweene thyne eyes, that the Lordes lawe may be in thy mouth: for in a strong
hande the Lorde brought thee out of
10 Kepe therfore this ordinaunce in his season from yere to yere.
11 And it wyll come to passe that ye Lord shal bryng the land of the Chanaanites,
which he sware vnto thee and to thy fathers, and shall geue it thee.
12 And then thou shalt appoynt vnto the Lorde all that openeth the matrice, and
euery firstlyng that commeth of a beast which thou hast, yf it be a male, it
shalbe the Lordes.
13 And euery firstlyng of an asse, thou shalt redeeme with a lambe: yf thou
redeeme hym not, thou shalt breake his necke: All the first borne amongst thy
chyldren also shalt thou bye out.
14 And when thy sonne aske thee in time to come, saying: what is this? Thou
shalt saye vnto hym: With a myghtie hande the Lorde brought vs out of
, out of the house of bondage.
15 And when Pharao was very loth to let vs go, the Lorde slewe all the first
borne in the lande of Egypt, aswell the first borne of man, as the firstlyng of
beast: Therefore I sacrifice vnto the Lorde all the males that open the matrice:
but all the first borne of my chyldren I redeeme.
16 This shalbe as a token vppon thyne hande, & as a remembraunce betweene
thyne eyes, that the Lorde brought vs out of
through a myghtie hande.
17 It came to passe, that when Pharao had let the people go, God caryed them not
through the way of the lande of the Philistines, which was the more nygh way.
But God saide: lest peraduenture the people repent whe they see warre, and so
turne agayne to
18 But God led the people about through the way of the wyldernesse of the redde
sea, and the chyldren of
went vp harnessed out of the lande of
19 And Moyses toke the bones of Ioseph with him: for he made the children of
sweare, saying: God wyl surely visite you, and ye shall take my bones away
hence with you.
20 And they toke their iourney from Sucoth, and abode in Etham in the edge of
21 And the Lorde went before them by day in a pyller of a cloude to leade them
the way, and by nyght in a pyller of fire to geue them lyght, that they myght go
both by day and nyght.
22 The piller of the cloude departed not by daye, nor the pyller of fire by
nyght, out of the syght of the people.
1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
2 Speake to the chyldre of
, that they turne & pitch their tentes before Pi-hahiroth betweene Migdol
and the sea, ouer agaynst Baal-sephon, and before that shall they pitche by the
3 For Pharao wyll say of the chyldren of
: they are tangled in the lande, the wyldernesse hath shut them in.
4 And I wyll harden Pharaos heart, that he shall folowe after you, and I wyll
get me honour vpon Pharao, and vpon al his hoast: The Egyptians also shall knowe
that I am the Lorde. And they dyd euen so.
5 And it was tolde the kyng of
that the people fledde. And the heart of Pharao and of his seruauntes turned
agaynst the people, and they said: Why haue we done this, that we haue let
go out of our seruice?
6 And he made redy his charette, and toke his people with hym.
7 And toke sixe hundred chosen charets, and all the charets of
, and capitaynes vpon euery one of them.
8 And the Lorde hardened the heart of Pharao kyng of
, and he folowed after ye children of
: but the childre of
went out with an hye hande.
9 And the Egyptians folowed after the, and al the horses and charettes of Pharao,
and his horsemen, and his hoast ouertoke them pitchyng of their tent by the sea
beside Pi-hahiroth before Baal-sephon.
10 And when Pharao drewe nygh, the chyldren of
lift vp their eyes, and beholde, the Egyptians folowed after them, and they
were sore afrayde: and the chyldren of
cryed out vnto the Lorde.
11 But they sayde vnto Moyses: because there were no graues in
, hast thou therfore brought vs away for to dye in the wildernesse? Wherfore
hast thou serued vs thus, for to carry vs out of
12 Dyd not we tell thee this in
, saying, let vs be in rest, that we maye serue the Egyptians? For it had ben
better for vs to haue serued the Egyptians, then for to dye in the wyldernesse.
13 And Moyses saide vnto the people: Feare ye not, stande styll, and beholde the
saluation of the Lorde whiche he wyll shewe to you this day: For ye that haue
seene the Egyptians this day, shal see them no more for euer.
14 The Lorde shall fyght for you, and ye shall holde your peace.
15 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Wherfore cryest thou vnto me? speake vnto
the children of
that they go forwarde.
16 But lyft thou vp thy rod, and stretche out thy hande ouer the sea, and deuide
it a sunder, and let the children of
go on drye grounde through the middes of the sea.
17 And beholde I [euen] I wyll harden the heart of the Egyptians, and they shall
folowe after them: and I wyll get me honour vpon Pharao, and vpon all his hoast,
and vpon his charettes, and vpon his horsemen.
18 And the Egyptians shal know that I am the Lorde, when I haue gotten me honour
vpo Pharao, vpon his charets, and vpon his horsemen.
19 And the angell of God which went before the hoast of Israel, remoued and went
behynde them: and the pyller of the cloude went from before their face, and
stoode behynde them,
20 And came betweene the tentes of the Egyptians, and the tentes of Israel, and
it was a cloude and darknesse, and gaue lyght by nyght: and all the nyght long
the one came not at the other.
21 And Moyses stretched out his hande ouer the sea, & the Lorde caused the
sea to go backe by a very strong east wynde all that nyght, and made the sea
drye [lande] and the waters were deuided.
22 And the children of
went into the middest of the sea vppon the drye [grounde,] and the waters were
a wall vnto them on their ryght hande and on their left hande.
23 And the Egyptians folowed, & went in after them to the myddest of the
sea, euen all Pharaos horses, his charettes, and his horsemen.
24 And in the mornyng watche, the Lord loked vnto the hoast of the Egyptians out
of the pyller of the fire and of the cloude, and troubled the hoast of the
25 And toke of his charet wheeles, and caryed them away violently: So that the
Egyptians sayde, Let vs flee fro the face of
, for the Lord fighteth for them agaynst the Egyptians.
26 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Stretche out thyne hande ouer the sea, that
the waters may come againe vpon the Egyptians, vpon their charets, and vpon
27 And Moyses stretched foorth his hand ouer the sea, and it came agayne to his
course early in the mornyng, and the Egyptians fled agaynst it: and the Lorde
ouerthrewe the Egyptians in the middest of the sea.
28 And the water returned, and couered the charettes, and the horsemen, and all
the hoast of Pharao that came into the sea after them, so that there remayned
not one of them.
29 But the children of
walked vppon drye [lande] through the middest of the sea, and the waters were a
wall vnto them on the right hande of them, and on the left.
30 Thus the Lorde deliuered
the selfe same daye out of the hande of the Egyptians: and
sawe the Egyptians dead vpon the sea syde.
sawe that myghtie power which the Lorde shewed vpon the Egyptians: and the
people feared the Lorde, and beleued the Lorde and his seruaunt Moyses.
1 Then Moyses & the children of
sange this sounge vnto the Lorde, and sayde on this maner: I wil sing vnto the
Lorde, for he hath triumphed gloriouslie, the horse and hym that rode vpon hym
hath he ouerthrowen in the sea.
2 The Lorde is my strength and praise, and he is become my saluation: he is my
God, and I wyll glorifie hym, my fathers God, and I wyll exalt hym.
3 The Lorde is a man of warre, the Lorde is his name.
4 Pharaos charets and his hoast hath he cast into the sea, his chosen captaynes
also are drowned in the red sea.
5 The deepe waters hath couered them, they sunke to the bottome as a stone.
6 Thy ryght hande Lorde is become glorious in power, thy ryght hande Lorde hath
all to dasshed the enemie.
7 And in thy great glorie thou hast ouerthrowe them that rose vp agaynst thee:
thou sendest foorth thy wrath, whiche consumed them euen as stubble.
8 Through the wynde of thy nosethrils the water gathered together, ye fluddes
stoode styll as an heape, and the deepe water congeled together in the heart of
9 The enemie sayde, I wyll folowe [on the] I wyll ouertake [them] I wyll deuide
the spoyle, and my lust shalbe satisfied vppon them: I wyll drawe my sworde,
myne hande shall destroy them.
10 Thou diddest blowe with thy wynde, the sea couered the, they sanke as leade
in the myghtie waters.
11 Who is like vnto thee O Lord amongst gods? Who is like thee, so glorious in
holynesse, fearefull in prayses, shewyng wonders?
12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hande, the earth swalowed them.
13 Thou in thy mercie hast caryed this people which thou hast redeemed, and hast
brought them in thy strength vnto thy holy habitation.
14 The nations shal heare, & be afraide, sorowe shall come vpon Palestina.
15 Then the dukes of the Edomites shalbe amazed, and the myghtyest of the
Moabites tremblyng shall come vpon them, al the inhabiters of Chanaan shal waxe
16 Feare & dreade shal fall vpon them, in the greatnesse of thine arme they
shalbe as styll as a stone, tyll thy people passe through, O Lorde, whyle this
people passe through which thou hast gotten.
17 Thou shalt bryng them in, and plant them in the mountayne of thine
inheritaunce, the place Lord which thou hast made for to dwell in, the
sanctuarie, O Lord, which thy handes haue prepared
18 The Lorde shall raigne for euer and euer.
19 For Pharao on horsebacke went in with his charettes and horsemen into the
sea, and the Lorde brought the waters of the sea vpon them: But the chyldren of
went on drye [land] in the middest of the sea.
20 And Miriam a prophetisse, the sister of Aaron, toke a tymbrell in her hande,
and all the women came out after her with tymbrelles and daunces.
21 And Miriam sang before them: Sing ye vnto the Lorde, for he hath triumphed
gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he ouerthrowen in the sea.
22 And so Moyses brought
from the redde sea, and they went out into the wyldernesse of Sur: and they
went three dayes long in the wildernesse, and founde no waters.
23 And when they came to Marah, they coulde not drynke of the waters of Marah,
for they were bytter: therefore the name of the place was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured agaynst Moyses, saying: What shall we drinke?
25 And he cryed vnto the Lorde, and the Lorde shewed hym a tree, whiche when he
had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweete: There he made them an
ordinaunce and a lawe, and there he proued hym,
26 And sayde: If thou wylt hearken vnto the voyce of the Lorde thy God, &
wylt do that which is right in his sight, and wylt geue eare vnto his
commaundementes, and kepe all his ordinaunces: then wyll I put none of these
diseases vpon thee, which I haue brought vpon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord
that healeth thee.
27 And the children of
came to Elim, where were twelue welles of water, and threescore and ten palme
trees: and they pitched their tentes there by the waters.
1 And they toke theyr iourney from Elim, & all the congregation of the
came to the wildernes of Sin, whiche is betweene Elim & Sinai, the
fyfteenth day of the seconde moneth after their departyng out of the lande of
2 And the whole congregation of the chyldren of
murmured agaynst Moyses and Aaron in the wyldernesse.
3 And the chyldren of
sayde vnto them: Woulde to God we had dyed by the hande of the Lorde in the
, whe we sate by the fleshe pottes, and when we dyd eate bread our bellies full:
for ye haue brought vs out into this wildernesse, to kyl this whole multitude
4 Then sayde the Lorde vnto Moyses: Beholde, I wyll rayne bread from heauen to
you, and the people shall go out & gather a certaine rate euery day, that I
may proue them whether they wyll walke in my lawe, or no.
5 The sixt day they shall prepare for themselues that which they will bring in,
and let it be twyse as muche as they gather in dayly.
6 And Moyses and Aaron sayde vnto the chyldren of
: At euen ye shall know that it is the Lord which brought you out of the lande
7 And in the morning ye shal see the glorye of the Lorde, because he hath heard
your grudgynges agaynst the Lorde: And what are we, that ye haue murmured
8 And Moyses sayde: At euen shall the Lord geue you fleshe to eate, and in the
mornyng bread inough, for the Lorde hath heard your murmuringes which ye murmure
agaynst him: for what are we? Your murmurings are not against vs, but agaynst
9 And Moyses spake vnto Aaron: say vnto al the congregation of the children of
, come foorth before the Lord: for he hath hearde your grudgynges.
10 And as Aaron spake vnto the whole congregation of the chyldren of
, they looked towarde the wyldernesse, and beholde, the glory of the Lorde
appeared in the cloude.
11 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
12 I haue hearde the murmuringes of the children of
, tell them therfore and say: at euen ye shall eate fleshe, and in the mornyng
ye shalbe fylled with bread, and ye shall knowe that I am the Lorde your God.
13 And at euen the quailes came vp and couered the tentes, and in the mornyng
the deawe lay rounde about them.
14 And when the deawe was gone, beholde, vpon the grounde in the wyldernesse
there lay a small rounde thyng, as small as the hoare frost on the ground.
15 And when the children of
saw it, they said euery one to his neighbour, it is Manna: for they wist not
what it was. And Moyses said vnto the: This is the bread whiche the Lorde hath
geuen you to eate.
16 This is the worde whiche the Lorde hath commaunded: gather of it euerye man
for him selfe for to eate, a gomer full for euery man, according to the number
of your soules, and take euery man for them whiche are in his tentes.
17 And the children of
did euen so, and gathered some more, some lesse.
18 And when they did meate it with a gomer, vnto him that gathered much,
remayned nothyng ouer, and vnto hym that had gathered litle, was there no lacke:
euery man gathered sufficient for his eatyng.
19 And Moyses sayde vnto them: see that no man let ought remayne to the mornyng.
20 Notwithstanding, they hearkened not vnto Moyses: but some of them left of it
vntill the mornyng, and it waxed full of wormes, & corrupted: and Moyses was
angry with them.
21 And they gathered all mornynges euery man as muche as sufficed for his eatyng:
and assoone as the heate of the sunne came, it moult.
22 And the sixt day they gathered twise as muche bread, two gomers for one man:
and all the rulers of the congregation came and tolde Moyses.
23 He sayd vnto them, This is that whiche the Lorde hath sayd: To morowe is the
rest of the holy sabboth vnto the Lorde, bake that whiche you will bake to day,
and sethe that ye will sethe, and that whiche remayneth, lay vp tyll the mornyng.
24 And they layed it vp till the morning as Moyses bad: and it did not corrupt,
neyther bred there any worme therein.
25 And Moyses sayde: eate that to day, for it is the sabboth vnto the Lorde, to
day ye shall not finde it in the fielde.
26 Sixe dayes ye shall gather it, and in the seuenth day whiche is the sabboth,
in it there shalbe none.
27 Notwithstandyng, there went out some of the people in the seuenth day for to
gather, and they founde none.
28 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Howe long refuse ye to kepe my
commaundementes and my lawes?
29 See, the Lorde hath geuen you a sabboth, therfore he geueth you the sixt day
bread for two dayes: byde therfore euerye man at home, and let no man go out of
his place the seuenth day.
30 And the people rested the seuenth day.
31 And the house of
called the name therof Manna: and it was like coriander seede, but yet whyte,
and the taste of it was lyke wafers made with honye.
32 And Moyses sayd: this is that which the Lorde commaundeth, fill a gomer of
it, whiche may be kept for your chyldren after you, that they may see the bread
wherwith I haue fed you in the wyldernesse when I brought you out of the lande
33 And Moyses spake vnto Aaron: Take a pot, and put a gomer full of Manna
therein, and lay it vp before the Lorde, to be kept for your children after you.
34 As the Lorde commaunded Moyses, so Aaron layde it vp before the testimonie to
35 And the chyldren of Israel dyd eate Manna fourtie yeres, vntil thei came to a
land inhabited, and so they did eate Manna, euen vntill they came vnto the
borders of the lande of Chanaan.
36 A gomer, is the tenth part of an epha.
1 And all the congregation of the children of
went on theyr iourneys fro the wyldernesse of Sin, after the commaundement of
the Lorde, and pitched in Raphidim, there was no water for the people to drinke.
2 And ye people dyd chyde with Moyses, and sayde: geue vs water to drinke.
Moyses said vnto them: why chyde you with me? wherfore do ye tempt ye Lord?
3 There the people thirsted for water, and ye people murmured agaynst Moyses,
and saide: wherefore hast thou thus brought vs vp out of
, to kil me, & my children, and my cattell with thyrst?
4 And Moyses cryed vnto the Lorde, saying: What shall I do vnto this people,
they be almost redy to stone me?
5 And the Lorde said vnto Moyses: Go before the people, and take with thee of
the elders of
: & thy rod wherewith thou smotest the ryuer take in thine hande, and go.
6 Beholde, I stande before thee vpon the rocke that is in Horeb, & thou
shalt smyte the rocke, and there shall come water out thereof, that the people
may drinke. And Moyses dyd euen so before the eyes of the elders of
7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the
chiding of the children of
, and because they tempted the Lorde, saying: Is the Lorde amongest vs, or not?
8 Then came Amelec and fought with
9 And Moyses sayde vnto Iosua: Chose vs out men, and go fight with Amelec, and
to morowe I will stande on the toppe of the hill, and the rodde of God shalbe in
10 Iosua did as Moyses bad hym, and fought with Amelec: and Moyses and Aaron,
and Hur, went vp to the toppe of the hyll.
11 And it came to passe, that when Moyses helde vp his hande,
had the better: and when he let his hande downe, Amelec had the better.
12 But Moyses hands were heauie, and therfore they toke a stone and put it vnder
him, and he sat downe theron: and Aaron and Hur stayed vp his handes, the one on
the one side, and the other on the other side: And his handes remayned stedye,
vntill the goyng downe of the sunne.
13 And Iosua discomforted Amelec and his people with the edge of the sworde.
14 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Wryte this for a remembraunce in a booke,
and commit it into the eares of Iosua, for I will vtterly put out the
remembraunce of Amelec from vnder heauen.
15 And Moyses made an aulter, and called the name of it: The Lorde is he that
worketh miracles for me.
16 For he said: the hande is on the seate of God, the Lord wil haue warre with
Amalec fro generation to generation.
1 Iethro ye priest of Madian Moyses father in lawe, heard of all that god had
donefor Moyses, and for
his people, and that the Lord had brought
2 Therefore he toke Sephora Moyses wyfe, after he had sent her backe,
3 And her two sonnes, of which the one was called Gershom: for he sayde, I haue
ben an aliaunt in a straunge land:
4 The name of the other was Eliezer: for the God of my father [sayde he] was
mine helpe, and deliuered me from the sworde of Pharao.
5 And Iethro Moyses father in lawe, came with his two sonnes, & his wife,
vnto Moyses into ye wildernesse, where he abode by the mounte of God.
6 And he saide vnto Moyses: I thy father in lawe Iethro am come to thee, and thy
wyfe also, and her two sonnes with her.
7 And Moyses went out to meete his father in lawe, and did obeysaunce, and
kyssed hym: and eche asked other of his health, and they came into the tent.
8 And Moyses tolde his father in lawe all that the Lorde had done vnto Pharao
and to the Egyptians for
sake, and al the trauaile that had come vpon them by the way, and howe the
Lorde deliuered them.
9 And Iethro reioyced ouer al the goodnesse which the Lorde had done to
, and because he had deliuered them out of the handes of the Egyptians.
10 And Iethro sayd: blessed be the Lord which hath deliuered you out of ye hand
of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharao, which hath also deliuered his
people from ye captiuitie of ye Egyptians.
11 Nowe I knowe that the Lorde is greater then all gods: for in the thyng
whereby they dealt cruelly with them, were they destroyed them selues.
12 And Iethro Moyses father in lawe toke burnt offeringes and sacrifices, to
offer to God: And Aaron and all the elders of
came to eate bread with Moyses father in lawe before God.
13 And on the morowe Moyses sate to iudge the people: and the people stoode
about Moyses from morning vnto eue.
14 And when Moyses father in lawe sawe all that he dyd vnto the people, he sayd:
what is this that thou doest vnto the people? Why sittest thou thy selfe alone,
and all the people stande about thee from morning vnto euen?
15 And Moyses sayde to his father in lawe: because the people come vnto me to
seeke counsayle of God.
16 When they haue a matter, they come vnto me, and I iudge betweene euery man
& his neyghbour, & shew them the ordinaunces of God and his lawes.
17 And Moyses father in lawe sayde vnto hym: It is not well that thou doest.
18 Thou both weryest thy selfe, and this people that is with thee: For this
thing is of more wayght, then thou art able to perfourme thy selfe alone.
19 Heare therfore nowe my voyce, and I wyll geue thee councell, and God shalbe
with thee: Be thou vnto the people to Godwarde, that thou mayest bring the
causes vnto God:
20 And thou shalt teache them ordinaunces and lawes, and shew them the way
wherein they must walke, & the worke that they must do.
21 Moreouer, thou shalt seeke out among all the people, men of actiuitie [and]
such as feare God, true men hating couetousnes, and place [of these] ouer the
[people] rulers of thousandes, rulers of hundrethes, rulers of fiftithes, and
rulers of tennes,
22 And let them iudge the people at all seasons: and euery great matter that
commeth, let them bryng vnto thee, but let them iudge all small causes them
selues, and so shall it be easier for thy selfe, and they shall beare a
[burthen] with thee.
23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God charge thee withall, thou shalt be able
to endure, and yet the people shall come to their place in peace.
24 And so Moyses obeyed the voyce of his father in lawe, and dyd all that he had
25 And Moyses chose actiue men out of all Israel, and made them as heades ouer
the people, namely rulers of thousandes, rulers of hundrethes, rulers of
fiftithes, and rulers of tennes,
26 And they iudged the people at all seasons: but brought the harde causes vnto
Moyses, and iudged all small matters them selues.
27 And Moyses let his father in lawe depart: and he went into his owne lande.
1 In the thirde moneth when the chyldren of
were gone out of the lande of
, the same day came they into the wyldernesse of Sinai.
2 For they were departed from Raphidim, and were come to the
, and had pitched their tentes in the wyldernesse, and there
campped before the mounte.
3 But Moyses went vp vnto God, and the Lorde called vnto hym out of the
mountayne, saying: Thus shalt thou say vnto the house of Iacob, and tell the
4 Ye haue seene what I did vnto the Egyptians, and toke you vp vpon Eagles
wynges, and haue brought you vnto my selfe.
5 Nowe therefore yf ye wyll heare my voyce in deede, and kepe my couenaunt, ye
shall be [as] a deare treasure vnto me aboue all nations: for al the earth is
6 Ye shalbe vnto me also a kingdome of priestes, & an holy people: And these
are the wordes whiche thou shalt say vnto the children of
7 Moyses came and called for the elders of the people, and layde before theyr
faces all these wordes whiche the Lorde commaunded hym.
8 And the people aunswered altogether, and sayde: All that the Lorde hath sayd,
we will do. And Moyses brought the wordes of the people vnto ye Lord.
9 And the Lorde sayd vnto Moyses: lo, I come vnto thee in a thicke cloude, that
the people may heare me talkyng with thee, and beleue thee for euer. Moyses
shewed the wordes of the people vnto the Lorde.
10 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Go vnto the people, and sanctifie the to day
and to morowe, and let them washe theyr clothes.
11 And be redy against the thirde day, for the thirde day the Lorde wyll come
downe in the sight of all the people vppon mount Sinai.
12 And thou shalt set boundes vnto the people rounde about, & say: take
heede to your selues that ye go not vp into the mount, or touche the border of
it: whosoeuer toucheth the mounte, shall surelye dye.
13 There shall not an hande touche it, els he shalbe stoned, or shot through:
whether it be beast, or man, it shall not liue: when the trumpet bloweth long,
then may they come vp into the mountayne.
14 And Moyses went downe from the
the people, and sanctified them, and they washed their clothes.
15 And he sayd vnto the people: be redy agaynst the thirde day, and come not at
16 And the thirde day in the mornyng there was thunder and lyghtnyng, and a
thicke cloude vpon the mount, and the voyce of the trumpet exceedyng loude, so
that all the people that was in the hoast was afrayde.
17 And Moyses brought the people out of the tentes to meete with God, and thei
stoode at the neather part of the hil.
18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lorde descended downe
vpon it in fire, and the smoke thereof, ascended vp as the smoke of a furnace,
and all the mount quaked exceedyngly.
19 And when the voyce of the trumpet blewe long, and waxed louder and louder,
Moyses spake, and God aunswered hym by a voyce.
20 And the Lorde came downe vpon mount Sinai, euen in the toppe of the hill:
& when the Lord called Moyses vp into the top of the hil, Moyses went vp.
21 And the Lorde sayd vnto Moyses: Go downe, charge the people, lest they breake
out from their boundes to see the Lorde, and so many of them perishe.
22 And let the priestes also whiche come to the Lorde sanctifie them selues,
lest the Lorde destroy them.
23 And Moyses said vnto the Lord: The people can not come vp into the mount
Sinai, for thou chargest vs, saying: set boundes about the hill, and sanctifie
24 And the Lord sayd vnto him: Away, and get thee downe, & thou shalt come
vp, thou and Aaron with thee: but let not the priestes and the people presume
for to come vp vnto the Lord, lest he destroy them.
25 And so Moyses went downe vnto the people, and tolde them.
1 And God spake all these wordes, and said.
2 I am the Lord thy GOD, whiche haue brought thee out of the lande of
, out of ye house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt haue none other Gods in my sight.
4 Thou shalt make thee no grauen image, neyther any similitude that is in heauen
aboue, eyther in the earth beneath, or in the waters vnder the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bowe downe to them, neyther serue them: for I the Lord thy God,
am a gelous God, and visite the sinne of the fathers vpon the chyldren, vnto the
thirde and fourth generation of them that hate me:
6 And shewe mercy vnto thousandes in them that loue me, and kepe my
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lorde thy God in vayne: for the Lorde will
not holde him giltlesse that taketh his name in vayne.
8 Remember the sabboth day that thou sanctifie it.
9 Sixe dayes shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do.
10 But the seuenth day is the sabboth of the Lorde thy God: in it thou shalt do
no maner of worke, thou and thy sonne, and thy daughter, thy man seruaunt, and
thy mayde seruaunt, thy cattel, and the straunger that is within thy gates.
11 For in sixe dayes the Lorde made heauen and earth, the sea, and all that in
them is, and rested the seuenth day: wherfore the Lorde blessed the seuenth day,
and halowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy dayes may be long in the lande
whiche the Lorde thy God geueth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kyll.
14 Thou shalt not commit adulterie.
15 Thou shalt not steale.
16 Thou shalt not beare false witnesse agaynst thy neyghbour.
17 Thou shalt not couet thy neyghbours house, neyther shalt thou couet thy
neyghbours wyfe, nor his man seruaut, nor his mayde, nor his oxe, nor his asse,
or whatsoeuer thy neighbour hath.
18 And all the people saw the thunder and lightning, and the noyse of the
trumpet, and the mountayne smoking: And when the people sawe it, they remoued,
and stoode a farre of:
19 And said vnto Moyses, Talke thou with vs, and we wyll heart: But let not God
talke with vs, lest we dye.
20 And Moyses sayde vnto the people: feare not, for God is come to proue you,
and that his feare may be before your eyes, that ye sinne not.
21 And the people stoode a farre of: and Moyses went into the thicke cloude
where God was.
22 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses, Thus thou shalt say vnto the chyldren of
: Ye haue seene that I haue talked with you from out of heauen.

where I shall put the remembraunce of my name, thyther I wyll come vnto thee,
and blesse thee.
25 And if thou wylt make me an aulter of stone, see thou make it not of hewen
stone: els if thou lyft vp thy toole vpon it, thou hast poluted it.

19 If he rise agayne, and walke without vpon his staffe, then shall he that
smote hym go quite, saue only he shall beare his charges for leesyng his tyme,
and shall paye for his healyng.
20 And if a man smyte his seruaunt or his mayde with a rod, & they dye vnder

iudgement shall it be done vnto him.
32 But if it be a seruaunt or a mayde that the oxe hath gored, then he shall
geue vnto their maister thirtie sicles, and the oxe shalbe stoned.

or any maner of lost thing, which another chalengeth to be his: the cause of
both parties shall come before the Iudges, and whom the Iudges condemne, let him

10 If a man delyuer vnto his neyghbour to kepe, asse, oxe, sheepe, or whatsoeuer
beast it be: and it dye, or be hurt, or taken away by enemies, & no man see

23 If ye shall euyll entreate them, and they crye out vnto me, I wyll surelye
heare theyr crye.
24 And then wyl my wrath waxe hotte, and I wyll kyll you with the sworde, &

26 If thou take thy neyghbours rayment to pledge, thou shalt deliuer it vnto him
by that the sunne go downe.

17 [These] three times in the yere, shall all thy men chyldren appeare before

20 Behold I sende an angell before thee, to kepe thee in the way, and to bryng

21 Beware of hym, and heare his voyce, and resist him not: for he wyll not spare
your misdeedes, and my name is in him.
22 But and if thou shalt in deede hearken vnto his voyce, & do al that I

31 And I wyll make thy coastes from the red sea, vnto the sea of the
Philistines, and from the desert vnto the riuer: For I wyll deliuer the
inhabitours of the lande into thyne hand, and thou shalt driue them out before

42 And let this be a continuall burnt offering amongst your children after you,

aulter, and put water therin.
19 For Aaron and his sonnes shall washe their handes and their feete therin.
20 Euen when they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they go in
to the aulter to minister and to burne the Lordes offeryng, they shall washe

21 Likewise they shal washe their handes & their feete, lest they dye: and
it shalbe an ordinaunce vnto them for euer, both vnto hym & his seede,
throughout their generations.
22 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
23 Take vnto thee principal spices, of the most pure Mirrhe fiue hudreth sicles,

33 Whosoeuer maketh lyke that, or whosoeuer putteth any of it vpon a strauger,

34 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Take vnto thee sweete spices, Starte, Onycha,

35 And make of them sweete smellyng incense, after the craft of the apoticarie,

1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
2 Beholde, I haue called by name Besaleel the sonne of Uri, the sonne of Hur, of
the tribe of Iuda,
3 And I haue fylled hym with the spirite of God, in wisedome and vnderstandyng,
in knowledge, and in all maner worke,
4 To fynde out wittie deuises, and to worke in golde, siluer, and in brasse,
5 And in the craft to set stones, and to carue in tymber, and to worke in all
6 And beholde, I haue geuen hym to be his companion Ooliab the sonne of
Achisamec, of the tribe of Dan: and in the heartes of all that are wise hearted
I haue put wisedome, to make all that I haue commaunded thee:
7 The tabernacle of the congregation, the arke of the testimonie, & the
mercie seate that is thervpon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle:
8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlesticke with all his
furniture, and the aulter of incense,
9 And the aulter of burnt offeryng and all his furniture, and the lauer with his

and the garmentes of his sonnes to minister in:
11 And the annoyntyng oyle, and sweete incense for the sanctuarie: accordyng to
all that I haue commaunded thee, shal they do.
12 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying:
13 Speake vnto the children of
, and say, In any wyse see that ye kepe [my] Sabbothes: for it is a signe
betweene me & you in your generations, for to knowe that I the Lorde am he
that doth sanctifie you.
14 Kepe my Sabboth therefore, for it is holy vnto you. He that defileth it
shalbe put to death: for whosoeuer worketh therin, the same soule shalbe rooted
out from amongst his people.
15 Six dayes shall men worke, and in the seuenth day is the Sabboth of the holy
rest of the Lorde: whosoeuer doth any worke in the Sabboth day shall dye the
16 Wherefore let the children of
kepe the Sabboth, that they obserue the Sabboth throughout their generations:
it is a perpetuall couenaunt.
17 For it is a signe betweene me and the children of
for euer: for in six dayes the Lorde made heauen and earth, and in the seuenth
day he rested and was refreshed.
18 And when the Lorde had made an end of commnuyng with Moyses vpon the mount
Sinai, he gaue hym two tables of witnesse, euen tables of stone, writen with the
finger of God.
1 And when ye people sawe that it was log or Moyses came downe out of the
mountaine, they gathered them selues together vnto Aaron, and sayd vnto hym, Up,
make vs Gods to go before vs: for we wote not what is become of this Moyses, the
man that brought vs out of the lande of Egypt.
2 And Aaron sayd vnto them: Plucke of the golden earynges which are in the eares
of your wiues, of your sonnes, & of your daughters, & bring them vnto
3 And all the people plucked of the golden earinges which they had in their
eares, and brought them vnto Aaron.
4 And he receaued them of their handes, & fashioned it with a grauer, &
made of it a calfe of molten mettel: and they said, These be thy gods O Israel,
which brought thee out of the lande of
5 And when Aaron sawe that, he made an aulter before it, and Aaron made
proclamation, saying: To morowe is the holy day of the Lorde.
6 And they rose vp in the mornyng, and offered burnt offeringes, and brought
peace offeringes also: and the people sat them downe to eate and drinke, and
rose vp agayne to play.
7 And the Lord sayd vnto Moyses: Go get thee downe, thy people which thou
broughtest out of the lande of
, hath marred all.
8 They are turned quickly out of the way whiche I commaunded them: for they haue
made them a calfe of moulten mettall, and haue worshipped it, and haue offred
thervnto, saying: These be thy goddes O Israel, whiche haue brought thee out of
the lande of
9 And the Lorde sayd vnto Moyses, I haue seene this people: and beholde, it is a
10 And nowe suffer me, that my wrath may waxe whot against them, and consume
them: and I wyll make of thee a mightie people.
11 And Moyses besought the Lorde his God, and sayd: O Lord, why doth thy wrath
waxe whot agaynst thy people whiche thou hast brought out of the lande of
with great power, and with a mightie hande?
12 Wherfore should the Egyptians speake and say: For a mischiefe dyd he bryng
them out, euen for to slay them in the mountaynes, & to consume them from
the face of the earth? Turne from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this euyll [deuise]
agaynst thy people.
13 Remember Abraham, Isahac, and
thy seruauntes, to whom thou swarest by thy owne selfe, and saydest vnto them:
I wyll multiplie your seede as the starres of heauen, and all this lande that I
haue spoken of wyll I geue vnto your seede, and they shall inherite it for euer.
14 And the Lorde refrayned hym selfe from the euill whiche he sayd he would do
vnto his people.
15 And Moyses turned his backe, & went downe from the hyll, & the two
tables of the testimonie were in his hande.
16 And the same tables were written in both the leaues, [euen] on the one side,
& on the other, were they written: And these tables were the worke of God,
and the writing was the writing of God, grauen in the tables.
17 And when Iosuah hearde the noyse of the people as they showted, he sayde vnto
Moyses: [there is] a noyse of warre in the hoast.
18 And he aunswered: It is not the crie of them that haue the masterie, nor of
the that haue the worse: [but] I do heare the noyse of them that sing.
19 And assoone as he came nigh vnto the hoast, he sawe the calfe, and the
daunsing: and Moyses wrath waxed whot, and he cast the tables out of his handes,

20 And he toke the calfe whiche they had made, and burned it in the fire, &
stampt it into pouder, & strawed it in the water, & made the childre of
drinke of it.
21 And Moyses said vnto Aaron: What did this people vnto thee, that thou hast
brought so great a sinne vpon them?
22 And Aaron aunswered, Let not the wrath of my Lorde waxe fierce: thou knowest
the people that they are [euen] set on mischiefe.
23 For they sayde vnto me: Make vs goddes to go before vs, for we wote not what
is become of Moyses, the man that brought vs out of ye

it vnto me, and I did cast it into the fire, and therof came out this calfe.
25 Moyses therfore sawe that the people were naked (and that Aaron had made them
naked vnto their shame, amongest their enemies)
26 And Moyses stode in the gate of the hoast, and sayd: Who [pertayneth] to the
Lorde, [let hym come] vnto me. And all the sonnes of Leui gathered theselues
together vnto hym.
27 And he said vnto them, Thus sayeth the Lord God of Israel: Put euery ma his
sworde by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the hoast,

29 And Moyses sayd: Fill your handes vnto the Lord this day, euery man vpo his

30 And on the morowe Moyses said vnto ye people, Ye haue sinned a great sinne:
And nowe I will go vp vnto the Lord, peraduenture I may purchase an attonement
for your sinne.
31 Moyses therefore went agayne vnto the Lorde, and sayde: Oh, this people haue
sinned a great sinne, and haue made them gods of golde.
32 And nowe forgeue them their sinne: or if thou wylt not, wype me I pray thee
out of thy booke whiche thou hast written.
33 And the Lorde sayd vnto Moyses: I wyll put hym out of my booke that hath
sinned agaynst me.
34 And nowe go thou, bryng the people vnto the place whiche I said vnto thee,
behold, mine angell shal go before thee: Neuerthelater, in that day when I

35 And the Lorde plagued the people, because they made the calfe whiche Aaron
1 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Depart and go vp hence, thou and the people
whiche thou hast brought out of the lande of Egypt, vnto the lande which I sware
vnto Abraham, Isahac, & Iacob, saying, vnto thy seede wyll I geue it.
2 And I will send an angell before thee, and I wyll cast out the Chanaanites,
the Amorites, & the Hethites, the Pherezites, the Heuites, and the Iebusites:
3 Unto a lande that floweth with mylke and hony. For I wyll not go amongest you
my selfe: for ye are a styfnecked people, lest I consume thee in the way.
4 And when the people hearde this euil tidinges, they sorowed: and no man dyd
put on his best rayment.
5 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses: Say vnto the chyldren of
, ye are a styfnecked people: I must come once sodaynly vpon you, and make an
ende of you: therefore nowe put thy goodly rayment from thee, that I may wyt

7 And Moyses toke the tabernacle, and pitched it without the hoast a farre of
from the hoast, and called it the tabernacle of the congregation: And so it came
to passe that euery one whiche woulde pray vnto the Lorde, went out vnto the
tabernacle of the congregation whiche was without the hoast.
8 And when Moyses went out vnto the tabernacle, all the people rose vp, and
stode euery man at his tent doore, and loked after Moyses, vntill he was gone
into the tabernacle.
9 And assoone as Moyses was entred into the tabernacle, the cloudie piller
descended, and stode at the doore of the tabernacle, and he talked with Moyses.
10 And all the people sawe the cloudie piller stand at the tabernacle doore, and
they rose vp and worshipped euery man in his tent doore.
11 And the Lord spake vnto Moyses face to face, as a man speaketh vnto his
freende. And he turued agayne into the hoast: but the young man Iosuah his
seruaunt the sonne of Nun, departed not out of the tabernacle.
12 And Moyses said vnto the Lord: See, thou sayest vnto me, Leade this people
foorth: & thou hast not shewed me who thou wylt send with me. And thou hast
sayd moreouer, I knowe thee by name, & thou hast also found grace in my
13 Nowe therfore, if I haue founde fauour in thy sight, then I pray thee shew me
thy way, that I may know thee, and that I may finde grace in thy sight, and
consider also that this nation is thy people.
14 And he said: My presence shall go with thee, and I wyll geue thee rest.
15 He sayd vnto hym: If thy presence go not with me, cary vs not hence.
16 For howe shall it be knowen here, that I and thy people haue founde fauour in
thy sight, but in that thou goest with vs? If thou goest with vs, shall not I
and thy people haue preeminence before all the people that are vpon the face of
17 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: I wyll do this also that thou hast sayd, for
thou hast founde grace in my sight, and I knowe thee by name.
18 And he sayde: I beseche thee shewe me thy glorie.
19 Who aunswered: I wyll make all my good go before thee, & I wyll call in
the name of Iehouah before thee: and wyl shewe mercy to whom I wyll shewe mercy,
and wyll haue compassion, on whom I wyll haue compassion.
20 And he said furthermore, Thou mayest not see my face: for there shall no man
see me, and lyue.
21 And the Lorde sayd: Beholde, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stande
vpon a rocke.
22 And whyle my glory goeth foorth, I wyll put thee in a clyft of the rocke, and
will put my hand vpon thee, while I passe by.
23 And I wyll take away myne hande, and thou shalt see my backe partes: but my
face shall not be seene.
1 And the Lord saide vnto Moyses: hewe thee two tables of stone like vnto the
first, and I wyll wryte vpon these tables, ye wordes that were in the first
tables whiche thou brakest.
2 And be redy in the morning, and come vp early vnto the mount of Sinai, and
thou shalt stande there for me in the top of the mount.
3 There shall no man come vp with thee, neither let any man be seene thorowout
al the mount, neither let sheepe nor oxen feede before the hyll.
4 And Moyses hewed two tables of stone like vnto the first, and rose vp earlye
in the mornyng, and went vp vnto the mount Sinai as the Lorde had commaunded hym,
& toke in his hande the two tables of stone.
5 And the Lord descended in the cloude, and stode with him there: and he called

6 And the Lorde passed by before hym, and cryed, Lorde, Lorde, God, strong,
mercyfull and gracious, long suffering, and aboundaunt in goodnes & trueth,
7 And kepyng mercy in store for thousandes, forgeuing wickednes, vngodlynes and
sinne, and not leauing one innocent, visiting the wickednes of the fathers vpon
the chyldren, and vpon the chyldrens chyldren, [euen] vnto the third and fourth
8 And Moyses made haste, and bowed hym selfe to the earth, and worshipped,
9 And sayd: If I haue founde grace in thy sight, O Lorde, then let my Lorde I
pray thee go in the middest of vs, for it is a styfnecked people: and thou shalt
haue mercy vpon our wickednes and our sinne, and shalt take vs for thine
10 And he said: Beholde, I make a couenaunt before all thy people, & I will
do meruayles, such as haue not ben done in all the worlde, neither in all
nations: & all the people amongest whiche thou art, shall see the worke of
the Lorde: for it is a terrible thyng that I wyll do with thee.
11 Kepe diligently those thinges that I commaunde thee this day: Beholde, I cast
out before thee, the Amorites, Chanaanites, Hethites, Pherezites, Heuites and

he is a ielous God.
15 Lest if thou make any agreement with the inhabitours of the lande, and they
go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice vnto their gods: they call thee,
and thou eate of theyr sacrifice.
16 And thou take of their daughters vnto thy sonnes, and their daughters go a
whoryng after their gods, and make thy sonnes go a whoryng after their gods
17 Thou shalt make thee no gods of mettall.
18 The feast of vnleauened bread shalt thou kepe: Seuen daies thou shalt eate
vnleauened bread, as I commaunded thee in the tyme of the moneth Abib: for in

19 All that openeth the matrice is myne, and al that breaketh the matrice
amongest thy cattell if it be male, whether it be oxe or sheepe.
20 But the firstling of the asse thou shalt bye out with a lambe: and if thou
redeeme hym not, thou shalt breake his necke. All the first borne of thy sonnes
thou shalt redeeme: & see that no man appeare before me emptie.
21 Sixe dayes thou shalt worke, and in the seuenth day thou shalt rest, both
from earyng and reapyng.
22 Thou shalt obserue the feast of weekes with thy first fruites of wheate
haruest: and the feast of ingatheryng at the yeres ende.
23 Thryse in a yere shall all your men chyldren appeare before the Lorde Iehouah
24 For I wyll cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy coastes: neyther
shall any man desyre thy lande, when thou shalt go vp to appeare before the
Lorde thy God thryse in a yere.
25 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice vpon leauen, neither shal
