Exodus 3:7

Context

3:7 The Lord said, “I have surely seen 1  the affliction of my people who are in Egypt. I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. 2 

Exodus 3:17

Context
3:17 and I have promised 3  that I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, 4  to a land flowing with milk and honey.”’

1 tn The use of the infinitive absolute with the perfect tense intensifies the statement: I have surely seen – there is no doubt that I have seen and will do something about it.

2 sn Two new words are introduced now to the report of suffering: “affliction” and “pain/suffering.” These add to the dimension of the oppression of God’s people.

3 tn Heb “And I said.”

4 tn See the note on this list in 3:8.
