23Now it happened #Acts 7:34in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel #Deut. 26:7groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and #Ex. 3:7, 9; James 5:4their cry came up to God because of the bondage. 24So God #Ex. 6:5; Acts 7:34heard their groaning, and God #Gen. 15:13; 22:16–18; 26:2–5; 28:13–15; Ps. 105:8, 42remembered His #Gen. 12:1–3; 15:14; 17:1–14covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25And God #Ex. 4:31; Luke 1:25; Acts 7:34looked upon the children of Israel, and God #Ex. 3:7acknowledged them.
