At that time the LORD said to me, "Chisel out two stone tablets1 like the first ones and come up to me on the mountain. Also make a wooden chest.a2
I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Then you are to put them in the chest."23
So I made the ark out of acacia wood3 and chiseled4 out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I went up on the mountain with the two tablets in my hands.
The LORD wrote on these tablets what he had written before, the Ten Commandments5 he had proclaimed6 to you on the mountain, out of the fire, on the day of the assembly.7 And the LORD gave them to me.
