Moses on Sinai1 a In the third month after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt ▼
▼ Lit on this dayon that very day they came into the wilderness of c Sinai. 2 When they set out from d Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of e the mountain. 3 Moses went up to God, and f the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: 4 ‘ g You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on h eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. 5 ‘Now then, i if you will indeed obey My voice and j keep My covenant, then you shall be k My ▼
▼ Or special treasureown possession among all the peoples, for m all the earth is Mine; 6 and you shall be to Me n a kingdom of priests and o a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.” 7 p So Moses came and called the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which the Lord had commanded him. 8 q All the people answered together and said, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do!” And Moses brought back the words of the people to the Lord. 9 The Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will come to you in r a thick cloud, so that the s people may hear when I speak with you and may also believe in you forever.” Then Moses told the words of the people to the Lord. 10 The Lord also said to Moses, “Go to the people and t consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them u wash their garments; 11 and let them be ready for the third day, for on v the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 12 “You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, ‘ ▼
▼ Lit Take heed to yourselvesBeware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; x whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. 13 ‘No hand shall touch him, but y he shall surely be stoned or ▼
▼ I.e. with arrowsshot through; whether beast or man, he shall not live.’ When the ram’s horn sounds a long blast, they shall come up to aa the mountain.” 14 So Moses went down from the mountain to the people and consecrated the people, and they washed their garments. 15 He said to the people, “Be ready for the third day; do not go near a woman.” 16 ab So it came about on the third day, when it was morning, that there were ▼
▼ Lit soundsthunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain and a very loud trumpet sound, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. 17 And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they stood at the ▼
▼ Lit lower partfoot of the mountain.
The Lord Visits Sinai18 ae Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it af in fire; and its smoke ascended like ag the smoke of a furnace, and ah the whole mountain ▼
▼ Or trembledquaked violently. 19 When the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and aj God answered him with ▼
▼ Or a voice; lit a soundthunder. 20 al The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain; and the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up. 21 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Go down, ▼
▼ Lit testify towarn the people, so that an they do not break through to the Lord to gaze, and many of them ▼
▼ Lit fallperish. 22 “Also let the ap priests who come near to the Lord consecrate themselves, or else the Lord will break out against them.” 23 Moses said to the Lord, “The people cannot come up to Mount Sinai, for You ▼
▼ Lit testified towarned us, saying, ‘ ar Set bounds about the mountain and consecrate it.’” 24 Then the Lord said to him, ▼
▼ Lit Go, descend“Go down and come up again, at you and Aaron with you; but do not let the au priests and the people break through to come up to the Lord, or He will break forth upon them.” 25 So Moses went down to the people and told them.
