The Second Set of Tablets1In that time the lord said to me, You dress stone for yourself -- two tablets of stone as the first! And ascend to me into the mountain, and make for yourself [2ark 1a wooden]! 2And I will write upon the tablets the words which were on the [2tablets 1first] which you broke, and you shall put them into the ark. 3And I made the ark from out of [2wood 1incorruptible]. And I dressed the two [2tablets 1stone] as the first. And I ascended into the mountain, and the two tablets were upon [2two 3hands 1my]. 4And he wrote upon the tablets according to the [2writing 1first], the ten words which the lord spoke to you in the mountain out of the midst of the fire in the day of the gathering. And [2gave 3them 1the lord] to me. 5And turning, I went down from the mountain, and I put the tablets into the ark which I made; and they were there as [2gave charge 3to me 1the lord]. 6And the sons of Israel departed from Beeroth of the sons of Jaakin to Mosera; there Aaron died, and he was entombed there. And [3officiated as priest 1Eleazar 2his son] instead of him. 7From there they departed into Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jobath, a land of rushing streams of waters. 8In that time the lord separated the tribe of Levi to lift the ark of the covenant of the lord, to stand before the lord to officiate, and to invoke upon his name until this day. 9On account of this there is not to the Levites a portion or lot among their brethren. The lord himself is his lot, as [3told 4them 1the lord 2your God]. 10And I stayed in the mountain forty days and forty nights; and the lord listened to me, And in that time [2did not 3want 1the lord] to utterly destroy you. 11And the lord said to me, Proceed, depart before this people, and let them enter and inherit the land! which I swore by an oath to their fathers to give to them. 12And now, Israel, what does the lord your God ask from you, but only to fear the lord your God, and to go in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the lord your God from [2entire 3heart 1your], and from [2entire 3soul 1your]; 13to guard the commandments of the lord your God, and his ordinances, as many as I give charge to you today, that [2good 3to you 1it might be]. 14Behold, [3is of the lord 4your God 1the 2heaven], and the heaven of the heaven, the earth and all as much as is in it. 15Except concerning your fathers, the lord preferred to love them, and he chose their seed after them -- you, from all the nations according to this day. 16And you shall circumcise the hardness of your heart, and [3your neck 1you shall not 2harden] any longer. 17For the lord your God, he is God of gods, and Lord of lords, the [6God 1great 2and 3strong 4and 5fearful] who does not marvel over a person, nor should take a bribe; 18the one executing judgment for a foreigner, and orphan, and widow; and he loves the foreigner so as to give to him bread and a garment. 19And you shall love the foreigner; [3foreigners 1for 2you were] in the land of Egypt. 20The lord your God you shall fear, and to him you shall serve, and to him you shall cleave, and upon his name you shall swear by an oath. 21He is your boasting, and he is your God, who did among you the great and the honorable things, these things which [2beheld 1your eyes]. 22With seventy souls [2went down 1your fathers] into Egypt. But now [3made 4you 1the lord 2your God] as the stars of the heaven in multitude.
