Moses answered, "But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, 'the LORD has not appeared to you.'"
the LORD said to him, "What is that in your hand?" He said, "A rod."
He said, "Throw it on the ground." He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses ran away from it.
the LORD said to Moses, "Put forth your hand, and take it by the tail." He put forth his hand, and laid hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand.

"It will happen, if they will neither believe you nor listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.

Moses said to the LORD, "O Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before now, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue."
the LORD said to him, "Who made man's mouth? Or who makes one mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Isn't it I, the LORD?
Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak."
He said, "Oh, Lord, please send someone else."
The anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, "What about Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he comes forth to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
You shall speak to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do.
He will be your spokesman to the people; and it will happen, that he will be to you a mouth, and you will be to him as God.
You shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs."

You shall tell Pharaoh, 'Thus says the LORD, Israel is my son, my firstborn,
and I have said to you, "Let my son go, that he may serve me;" and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn.'"
It happened on the way at a lodging place, that the LORD met Moses and wanted to kill him.
Then Zipporah took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet; and she said, "Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me."
So he let him alone. Then she said, "You are a bridegroom of blood," because of the circumcision.
the LORD said to Aaron, "Go into the wilderness to meet Moses." He went, and met him on God's mountain, and kissed him.
Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD with which he had sent him, and all the signs with which he had instructed him.
Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel.
Aaron spoke all the words which the LORD had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
