The LORD said to Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones,1 and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets,2 which you broke.32
Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai.4 Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain.
No one is to come with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain;5 not even the flocks and herds may graze in front of the mountain."
So Moses chiseled6 out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the LORD had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands.75
Then the LORD came down in the cloud8 and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD.96
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate10 and gracious God, slow to anger,11 abounding in love12 and faithfulness,137
maintaining love to thousands,14 and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.15 Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;16 he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation."178
Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped.
"O Lord, if I have found favor18 in your eyes," he said, "then let the Lord go with us.19 Although this is a stiff-necked20 people, forgive our wickedness and our sin,21 and take us as your inheritance."2210
Then the LORD said: "I am making a covenant23 with you. Before all your people I will do wonders24 never before done in any nation in all the world.25 The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the LORD, will do for you.
Obey what I command26 you today. I will drive out before you the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.2712
Be careful not to make a treaty28 with those who live in the land where you are going, or they will be a snare29 among you.
Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.a3014
Do not worship any other god,31 for the LORD, whose name32 is Jealous, is a jealous God.33
