Listen to this Kathan Kawraw being read
by the chaciyd with some Hebrew pronunciation


1 And Mosheh answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, YAHUAH hath not appeared unto thee.
2 And YAHUAH said unto him, What [is] that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.
3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Mosheh fled from before it.
4 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:
5 That they may believe that YAHUAH YAHUAH of their fathers, YAHUAH of Abraham, YAHUAH of Isaac, and YAHUAH of Yacob, hath appeared unto thee.
6 And YAHUAH said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand [was] leprous as snow.
7 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his [other] flesh.
8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.
9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour [it] upon the dry [land]: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry [land].
10 And Mosheh said unto YAHUAH, O my YAHUAH, I [am] not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I [am] slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
11 And YAHUAH said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I YAHUAH?
12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.
13 And he said, O my YAHUAH, send, I pray thee, by the hand [of him whom] thou wilt send.
14 And the anger of YAHUAH was kindled against Mosheh, and he said, [Is] not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.
16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, [even] he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of YAHUAH.
17 And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.
18 And Mosheh went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which [are] in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Mosheh, Go in peace.
19 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.
20 And Mosheh took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Mosheh took the rod of YAHUAH in his hand.
21 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith YAHUAH, YisraYAH [is] my son, [even] my firstborn:
23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, [even] thy firstborn.
24 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that YAHUAH met him, and sought to kill him.
25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast [it] at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband [art] thou to me.
26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband [thou art], because of the circumcision.
27 And YAHUAH said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Mosheh. And he went, and met him in the mount of YAHUAH, and kissed him.
28 And Mosheh told Aaron all the words of YAHUAH who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.
29 And Mosheh and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of YisraYAH:
30 And Aaron spake all the words which YAHUAH had spoken unto Mosheh, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
31 And the people believed: and when they heard that YAHUAH had visited the children of YisraYAH, and that he had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.
