Exodus 3:1-5 New International Version

The Call of Moses

3 1  Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2  There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3  So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight-why the bush does not burn up." 4  When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am." 5  "Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground."
