1824All the peopleperceived the fthunder and the lightningflashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountainsmoking; and when the peoplesaw it, they trembled and stood at a distance.
1925Then they said to Moses, "Speakgto us yourself and we will listen; but let not Godspeakhto us, or we will die."
20Mosessaid to the people, "26Do not be afraid; for God has come in order27to test you, and in order that 28the fear of Him may iremain with you, so that you may not sin."
So the peoplestood at a distance, while Mosesapproached29the thickcloudwhereGod was.
Then the LORDsaid to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'You yourselves have seen that 30I have spokenjto you from heaven.
'31You shall not make other gods besides Me; 32gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves.
'You shall make33an altar of earth for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your 34burntofferings and your 35peaceofferings, 36your sheep and your oxen; in everyplace37where I cause My name to be remembered, I will come to you and bless you.
25'If you make an altar of stone for Me, 38you shall not build it of cutstones, for if you wield your tool on it, you will profane it.
'And you shall not go up by steps to My altar, so that 39your nakedness will not be exposed on it.'
