Moses on Sinai

1 1In the third month after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, aon that very day they came into the wilderness of 2Sinai. 2 When they set out from 3Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of 4the mountain. 3 Moses went up to God, and 5the LORD called to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: 4 '6You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on 7eagles' wings, and brought you to Myself. 5 'Now then, 8if you will indeed obey My voice and 9keep My covenant, then you shall be 10My bown possession among all the peoples, for 11all the earth is Mine; 6 and you shall be to Me 12a kingdom of priests and 13a holy nation.' These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel." 7 14So Moses came and called the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which the LORD had commanded him. 8 15All the people answered together and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do!" And Moses brought back the words of the people to the LORD. 9 The LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I will come to you in 16a thick cloud, so that the 17people may hear when I speak with you and may also believe in you forever." Then Moses told the words of the people to the LORD. 10 The LORD also said to Moses, "Go to the people and 18consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them 19wash their garments; 11 and let them be ready for the third day, for on 20the third day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 12 "You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, 'cBeware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; 21whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. 13 'No hand shall touch him, but 22he shall surely be stoned or dshot through; whether beast or man, he shall not live.' When the ram's horn sounds a long blast, they shall come up to 23the mountain." 14 So Moses went down from the mountain to the people and consecrated the people, and they washed their garments. 15 He said to the people, "Be ready for the third day; do not go near a woman." 16 24So it came about on the third day, when it was morning, that there were ethunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain and a very loud trumpet sound, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. 17 And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they stood at the ffoot of the mountain.
