When Moses came down from Mount Sinai5 with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands,6 he was not aware that his face was radiant7 because he had spoken with the LORD.
When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him.
But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community8 came back to him, and he spoke to them.
Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands9 the LORD had given him on Mount Sinai.
When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil10 over his face.
But whenever he entered the LORD's presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded,
they saw that his face was radiant.11 Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the LORD.
