3 and Moses went up the mountain to meet with God. The Lord called to him from the mountain and told him to say to the Israelites, Jacob's descendants:
4 "You saw what I, the Lord, did to the Egyptians and how I carried you as an eagle carries her young on her wings, and brought you here to me.
5 Now, if you will obey me and keep my covenant, you will be my own people. The whole earth is mine, but you will be my chosen people, 1
6 a people dedicated to me alone, and you will serve me as priests." 2
7 So Moses went down and called the leaders of the people together and told them everything that the Lord had commanded him.
8 Then all the people answered together, "We will do everything that the Lord has said," and Moses reported this to the Lord.
