Ac:7:12: But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.
Ac:7:13: And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
Ac:7:14: Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.
Ac:7:15: So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,
Ac:7:16: And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.
Ac:7:17: But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,
Ac:7:18: Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.
Ac:7:19: The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.
Ac:7:20: In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months:
Ac:7:21: And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.
Ac:7:22: And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
Ac:7:23: And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.
Ac:7:24: And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
Ac:7:25: For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.
Ac:7:26: And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?
Ac:7:27: But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
Ac:7:28: Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?
Ac:7:29: Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.
Ac:7:30: And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
Ac:7:31: When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,
Ac:7:32: Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
Ac:7:33: Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
Ac:7:34: I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.
Ac:7:35: This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
Ac:7:36: He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
Ac:7:37: This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
Ac:7:38: This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
Ac:7:39: To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,
Ac:7:40: Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
Ac:7:41: And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
Ac:7:42: Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?
Ac:7:43: Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
