When Moses looked closer, he noticed that the bush was on fire, but not burned down. 3 “Strange,” thought Moses, “why doesn’t the bush burn? I need to see this up close.” 4 The LORD saw Moses approaching the fire to take a closer look. Then he called out to him from the bush: “Moses, Moses!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered.
