Arrival at Mount Sinai

1 On exactly the third-month anniversary of the Israelites' leaving the land of Egypt, they came into the Sinai desert. 2 They traveled from Rephidim, came into the Sinai desert, and set up camp there. Israel camped there in front of the mountain 3 while Moses went up to God. The LORD called to him from the mountain, "This is what you should say to Jacob's household and declare to the Israelites: 4 You saw what I did to the Egyptians, and how I lifted you up on eagles' wings and brought you to me. 5 So now, if you faithfully obey me and stay true to my covenant, you will be my most precious possession out of all the peoples, since the whole earth belongs to me. 6 You will be a kingdom of priests for me and a holy nation. These are the words you should say to the Israelites." 7 So Moses came down, called together the people's elders, and set before them all these words that the LORD had commanded him. 8 The people all responded with one voice: "Everything that the LORD has said we will do." Moses reported to the LORD what the people said.
