3:1(iv) Now Mosheh kept the flock of Yitro his khoten (father-in-law), the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of Elohim, even to Horev.

3:2 And the ma'lak YHWH (יהוה) Ra'ah (appeared) to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3:3 And Mosheh said:

I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

3:4 And when YHWH (יהוה) saw that he turned aside to see, Elohim called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Mosheh, Mosheh. And he said, Here am I.

3:5 And he said:"Draw not nigh hither: Put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place whereon you standest is Kadosh Adamah.

3:6 Moreover he said,

"I am Elohim of your father, Elohim of Avraham, Elohim of Yitz'chak, and Elohim of Ya'akov."

And Mosheh hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon Elohim.

3:7 And YHWH (יהוה) said:

I have surely seen the affliction of My people which [are] in Mitzrayim, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Mitzrites, and to bring them up out of that land to a good land and a large, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Kenaanites, and the Hittites, and the Emori, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Yevusites.

3:9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of Benai Yisrael is come to me: and I have also seen the oppression with which the Mitzrites oppress them.

3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send you to Paroh, that you may bring forth My people Benai  Yisrael out of Mitzrayim.

3:11 And Mosheh said to Elohim:

מי אנכי "Who am I,

that I should go to Paroh, and that I should bring forth Benai  Yisrael out of Mitzrayim?"

3:12

Vayomer ki-ehyeh imakh vezeh-lekha haot ki anokhi shelakhtikha behotziakha et-haam miMitzrayim taavdun et-haElohim al hahar hazeh:

And He said, "I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Mitzrayim, you shall serve Elohim on this mountain."

3:13 And Mosheh said to Elohim:

"Behold, when I come to Benai Yisrael, and shall say to them, The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you; and they shall say to me, What is His Name? what shall I say to them?

3:14

Vayomer Elohim el-Mosheh: “EHYEH ASHER EHYEHvayomer koh tomar livnei Yisrael EHYEH shelakha nialeikhem:

And Elohim said to Mosheh:I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE: and He said: "Thus shall you say to the children of Yisrael, I AM / WILL BE has sent me to you."

3:15

Vayomer od Elohim el-Mosheh koh-tomar el-benei Yisrael YHWH Elohei avoteikhem Elohei Avraham Elohei Yitzchak v’Elohei Ya’akov shelakhani aleichem zeh-shemi leolam vezeh zikhri ledor dor:

And  said also Elohim to Mosheh:

"Thus you shall say to Benai  Yisrael:"

"YHWH Elohei of your fathers, Elohei Avraham, Elohei Yitz'chak, and Elohei Ya'akov, has sent me to you:"

"This is MY NAME for ever, and this is My Memorial for generation after generation."

3:16 (v)

Lekh veasafta et-ziknei Yisrael veamarta alehem YHWH Elohei avoteikhem nirah elai Elohei Avraham Yitz'chak veYa’akov lemor pakod pakadti etkhem veet-heasui lakhem beMitzrayim:

Go, and gather the Ziknei Yisrael together, and say to them, YHWH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Avraham, of Yitz'chak, and of Ya'akov, Ra'ah (appeared) to me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Mitzrayim:

3:17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Mitzrayim to the land of the Kena'ani, and the Hittites, and the Emori, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Yevusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey.

3:18 And they pay heed to what you say; and you with the Ziknei Yisrael will come to the king of Mitzrayim, and you shall say to him:

"YHWH (יהוה) Elohim of the Hebrews has met with us: So now please let us go a three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YHWH (יהוה) our Elohim."

3:19 And I am sure that the king of Mitzrayim will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.

3:20 And I will stretch out My hand, and smite Mitzrayim with all My wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.

3:21 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Mitzrites: and it shall come to pass, that, when you go, you shall not go empty:

3:22 But every woman shall ask of her neighbour, namely, of her who dwells near her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing: and you shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; So you shall plunder the Mitzrites.

Observation notes : Two Salvations

In the Seder has a Messianic Jewish perspective, it celebrates two stories of freedom:

The Exodus from Mitzrayim

The Exodus from slavery to our
“Evil Inclination”

HaShem sends Mosheh to perform signs and wonders.  HaShem himself leads the Yisraelites from slavery, takes them through the Yam Suf to security, calls them his people, and asks to dwell in their midst.

This was the beginning of Yisra'el being a nation.

HaShem sends Yeshua to perform signs and wonders.  HaShem himself leads people from slavery, takes them through an immersion to security, calls them his people, and indwells them with a new kind of life.

This was the beginning of the spiritual Kingdom of HaShem being established on earth.
