and the LORD said to him, "Go down and warn the people so they do not force their way through to see1 the LORD and many of them perish.222
Even the priests, who approach3 the LORD, must consecrate4 themselves, or the LORD will break out against them."523
Moses said to the LORD, "The people cannot come up Mount Sinai,6 because you yourself warned us, 'Put limits7 around the mountain and set it apart as holy.' "
The LORD replied, "Go down and bring Aaron8 up with you. But the priests and the people must not force their way through to come up to the LORD, or he will break out against them."9
