Moreover he said,
I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and
the God of Jacob.
And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
All Commentaries on Exodus 3:6 Go To Exodus 3
Aphrahat the Persian Sage
For the name of Divinity is given for the highest honor in the world, and with whomsoever God is well pleased, he applies it to him. But however, the names of God are many and are venerable, as he delivered his names to Moses, saying to him, “I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto generations.” And he called his name “Ahiyah ashar Ahiyah,”“El Shaddai” and “Adonai Sabaoth.” By these names God is called. The great and honorable name of Godhead he withheld not from his righteous ones; even as, though he is the great king, without grudging he applied the great and honorable name of kingship to men who are his creatures.
