Then Moses went up to God,1 and the LORD called2 to him from the mountain and said, "This is what you are to say to the house of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel:
'You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt,3 and how I carried you on eagles' wings4 and brought you to myself.55
Now if you obey me fully6 and keep my covenant,7 then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession.8 Although the whole earth9 is mine,
youa will be for me a kingdom of priests10 and a holy nation.'11 These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites."
So Moses went back and summoned the elders12 of the people and set before them all the words the LORD had commanded him to speak.138
The people all responded together, "We will do everything the LORD has said."14 So Moses brought their answer back to the LORD.
