The LORD said to Moses, "Cut two [more] stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets which you smashed.
Be ready in the morning. Then come up on Mount Sinai, and stand in my presence on the top of the mountain.
No one may come with you or even be seen anywhere on the mountain. Even the flocks and herds may not graze in front of this mountain."
So Moses cut two [more] stone tablets like the first ones. Early the next morning he went up on Mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, carrying the two stone tablets.
The LORD came down in a cloud and stood there with him and called out his name "the LORD."
Then he passed in front of Moses, calling out, "The LORD, the LORD, a compassionate and merciful God, patient, always faithful and ready to forgive.
He continues to show his love to thousands of generations, forgiving wrongdoing, disobedience, and sin. He never lets the guilty go unpunished, punishing children and grandchildren for their parents' sins to the third and fourth generation."
Immediately, Moses knelt, bowing with his face touching the ground.
Then he said, "Lord, please go with us! Even though we are impossible to deal with, forgive our sin and the wrong we have done, and accept us as your own people."
The LORD said, "I'm making my promise again. In front of all your people I will perform miracles that have never been done in any other nation in all the world. All the people around you will see how awesome these miracles are that I will perform for you.
Do everything that I command today. Then I will force the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites out of your way.
