\\INTRODUCTION TO EXODUS 19\\

In this chapter we have an account of the coming of the children of
Israel to Mount Sinai, \\#Ex 19:1,2\\, of the covenant made with them
there, the proposal on the part of God, and their acceptance of it,
\\#Ex 19:3-8\\, the previous notice God gave three days before of his
appearance on the mount, the orders for their preparation to meet
him, and the execution of them, \\#Ex 19:9-15\\, the awful and
tremendous appearance of God upon the mount, \\#Ex 19:6-20\\ and the
strict charge given, that neither people nor priests should come near
and gaze, only Moses and Aaron with him were to come up, bounds being
set to prevent the rest, \\#Ex 19:21-24\\, and the chapter is closed
with observing, that Moses went down from the mount, and delivered to
the people what the Lord spoke to and by him, \\#Ex 19:25\\.
