Although the people refused to be comforted by His words, the LORD was still committed to their deliverance.

Exodus 6:22–7:9 (Listen)

22 The sons of Uzziel: Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri. 23 Aaron took as his wife Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab and the sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 24 The sons of Korah: Assir, Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the clans of the Korahites. 25 Eleazar, Aaron’s son, took as his wife one of the daughters of Putiel, and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers’ houses of the Levites by their clans.

26 These are the Aaron and Moses to whom the LORD said: “Bring out the people of Israel from the land of Egypt by their hosts.” 27 It was they who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt about bringing out the people of Israel from Egypt, this Moses and this Aaron.

28 On the day when the LORD spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 the LORD said to Moses, “I am the LORD; tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” 30 But Moses said to the LORD, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips. How will Pharaoh listen to me?”

Moses and Aaron Before Pharaoh

7:1 And the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet. You shall speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron shall tell Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go out of his land. But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and though I multiply my signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and bring my hosts, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of judgment. The Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring out the people of Israel from among them.” Moses and Aaron did so; they did just as the LORD commanded them. Now Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.

Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Prove yourselves by working a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’”

     1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. 2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. 3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them. 6 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did they. 7 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

     8 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 520:
Commit Whatever Grieves Thee

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Commit whatever grieves thee 
Into the gracious hands 
Of Him who never leaves thee, 
Who heaven and earth commands. 
Who points the clouds their courses, 
Whom winds and waves obey, 
He will direct thy footsteps 
And find for thee a way. 

2. On Him place thy reliance 
If thou wouldst be secure; 
His work thou must consider 
If thine is to endure. 
By anxious sighs and grieving 
And self-tormenting care 
God is not moved to giving; 
All must be gained by prayer. 

3. Thy truth and grace, O Father, 
Most surely see and know 
Both what is good and evil 
For mortal man below. 
According to Thy counsel 
Thou wilt Thy work pursue; 
And what Thy wisdom chooseth 
Thy might will always do. 

4. Thy hand is never shortened, 
All things must serve Thy might; 
Thine every act is blessing, 
Thy path is purest light. 
Thy work no man can hinder, 
Thy purpose none can stay, 
Since Thou to bless Thy children 
Wilt always find a way. 

5. Though all the powers of evil 
The will of God oppose, 
His purpose will not falter, 
His pleasure onward goes. 
Whate’er God’s will resolveth, 
Whatever He intends. 
Will always be accomplished 
True to His aims and ends. 

6. Then hope, my feeble spirit, 
And be thou undismayed; 
God helps in every trial 
And makes thee unafraid. 
Await His time with patience, 
Then shall thine eyes behold 
The sun of joy and gladness 
His brightest beams unfold. 

7. Arise, my soul, and banish 
Thy anguish and thy care. 
Away with thoughts that sadden 
And heart and mind ensnare! 
Thou art not lord and master 
Of thine own destiny; 
Enthroned in highest heaven, 
God rules in equity. 

8. Leave all to His direction; 
In wisdom He doth reign, 
And in a way most wondrous 
His course He will maintain. 
Soon He, His promise keeping, 
With wonder-working skill, 
Shall put away the sorrows 
That now thy spirit fill. 

9. A while His consolation 
He may to thee deny, 
And seem as though in trial 
He far from thee would fly; 
A while distress and anguish 
May compass thee around, 
Nor to thy supplication 
An answering voice be found. 

10. But if thou perseverest, 
Thou shalt deliverance find. 
Behold, all unexpected 
He will thy soul unbind 
And from the heavy burden 
Thy heart will soon set free; 
And thou wilt see the blessing 
He had in mind for thee. 

11. O faithful child of heaven, 
How blessed shalt thou be! 
With songs of glad thanksgiving 
A crown awaiteth thee. 
Into thy hand thy Maker 
Will give the victor’s palm. 
And thou to thy Deliverer 
Shalt sing a joyous psalm. 

12. Give, Lord, this consummation 
To all our heart’s distress; 
Our hands, our feet, e’er strengthen, 
In death our spirits bless. 
Thy truth and Thy protection 
Grant evermore, we pray, 
And in celestial glory 
Shall end our destined way.
