'3I will write on the tablets the words that were on the formertabletswhich you shattered, and 4you shall put them in the ark.'
"So 5I made an ark of acaciawood and 6cut out twotablets of stone like the formerones, and went up on the mountain with the twotablets in my hand.
"He wrote on the tablets, like the formerwriting, 7the TenaCommandments8which the LORD had spoken to you on the mountain from the midst of the fire9on the day of the assembly; and the LORDgave them to me.
"Then I turned and 10camedown from the mountain and 11put the tablets in the arkwhich I had made; 12and there they are, as the LORDcommanded me."
