Thank you for returning this week of August 31; September 2-4, 2020 as we proceed with the verbatim posts of the Books of the Old Testament. We come after the Book of Genesis to the Book of 'the Exodus'.
The Biblical Record is quite extensive and detailed, as is our practice, let's start this week with some relevant 'introductions'.
We will take appropriate 'pauses' during the posting of this great Book of the Old Testament, as well as put in a few 'articles' to study to better our 'walk of faith', for, we are not in a 'horse-race'.
Remember we pray for the Almighty to 'open the eyes of our understanding', as we 'come into His Presence', 'reading' His Living Word, the Holy Bible. [See prayer on Introduction Post A-PM, February 25, 2020; Post 1-AM, March 2, 2020, and Post 3-AM, March 4, 2020.]

Chapter 1 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
The Book of Exodus relates the forming of the children of Israel into a church and a nation. We have hitherto seen true religion shown in domestic life, now, we begin to trace its effects upon the concerns of kingdoms and nations. Exodus signifies "the departure;" the chief event therein recorded is the departure of Israel from Egypt and Egyptian bondage; it plainly points out the fulfilling of several promises and prophecies to Abraham respecting his seed, and shadows forth the state of the church, in the wilderness of this world, until her arrival at the heavenly Canaan, an eternal rest. The children of Israel increase in Egypt after the death of Joseph. (8-14) They are oppressed, but multiply exceedingly. (1-7) The men-children destroyed. (15-22)
1 'Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.'
8 'Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.
9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:
10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.
11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.
12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:
14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.'
15 'And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.
17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?
19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.'
We shall continue our 'verbatim posts' with Post Chapter 2, on Wednesday, September 2, 2020; and Post Chapter 3, Friday, September 4, 2020, as the Lord wills. Thank you for returning. Amen. Amen.
