Exodus 33


The LORD Talks to Moses

1And the  lord said to Moses, Go forth, ascend from here, you and your people! whom you led from out of the land of Egypt, into the land which I swore by an oath to Abraham, and to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, To your seed I will give it. 2And I will send along my angel before your face; and he will cast out the Amorite, and Hittite, and Perizzite, and Gergesite, and Hivite, and Jebusite, and Canaanite. 3And I will bring you into a land flowing milk and honey. [3not 1For 2I will] go up with you, because [4people 3a hard-necked 1you 2are], that I should not completely consume you in the way. 4And [3hearing 1the 2people 5saying 4this severe], mourned in mourning. 5And the  lord said to the sons of Israel, You are a people hard-necked; see that [2do not 5calamity 4another 1I 3bring] upon you! and should completely consume you. Now then remove [2apparels 1your glorious], and the ornament! and I will show to you what I will do to you. 6And [4removed 1the 2sons 3of Israel] their ornamentation, and the attire at the mountain of Horeb. 7And Moses, taking his tent, pitched outside the camp far from the camp. And it was called -- Tent of Testimony. And it came to pass, all the ones seeking the  lord went forth unto the tent outside the camp. 8And whenever Moses entered into the tent outside the camp, [4stood 1all 2the 3people] watching, each one by the door of his tent. And they contemplated Moses' going away unto his entering into the tent. 9And as Moses entered into the tent, [4came down 1the 2column 3of cloud] and stood at the door of the tent, and he spoke to Moses. 10And [4saw 1all 2the 3people] the column of cloud standing by the door of the tent. And [4stood 1all 2the 3people]. And they did obeisance, each from the door of his tent. 11And the  lord spoke to Moses face to face, as if any might speak to his own friend. And he retired into the camp. And the attendant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, did not go forth from out of the tent. 12And Moses said to the  lord, Behold, you say to me, Lead this people! But you manifested not to me whom you shall send along with me. But you said to me, I know you above all, and [2favor 1you have] with me. 13If then I have found favor before you, reveal to me yourself knowingly! that I might see you, how ever I should be found in favor before you; and that I might know, that [2is your people 1this nation]. 14And he says, I myself will go before you, and will rest you. 15And he says to him, Unless you yourself should go with us, [2not 4me 1you should 3lead] from here. 16And how [3be made known 1will it 2truly] that I have found favor by you -- I and also your people, unless you are going with us, and [4will be glorified 1both I 2and 3your people] by all the nations, as many as [2upon 3the 4earth 1are]? 17[3said 1And 2the  lord] to Moses, And this [5to you 1word 2which 3you have said 4I will do], for you have found favor before me, and I know you above all.

The Glory of The LORD Shown to Moses

18And he says, Show to me your own glory! 19And he said, I will go by in front of you in my glory; and I will call the name, the  lord, before you; and I will show mercy on whom ever I should show mercy, and I will pity whom ever I should pity. 20And he said, You will not be able to see my face, for not in any way may [2see 1man] my face, and shall live. 21And the  lord said, Behold, a place by me. And you shall stand upon the rock; 22and when ever [2should go by 1my glory], even I will put you into an opening in the rock, and I will shelter with my hand upon you until whenever I should go by. 23And I shall remove the hand, and then you shall see the rear of me, but my face will not appear to you.
