15-16Moses said, "If your presence doesn't take the lead here, call this trip off right now. How else will it be known that you're with me in this, with me and your people? Are you traveling with us or not? How else will we know that we're special, I and your people, among all other people on this planet Earth?"
17God said to Moses: "All right. Just as you say; this also I will do, for I know you well and you are special to me. I know you by name."
