11In the thirdmonth after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, aon that very day they came into the wilderness of 2Sinai.
When they set out from 3Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and thereIsraelcamped in front of 4the mountain.
3Moseswent up to God, and 5the LORDcalled to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel:
'6You yourselves have seenwhat I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on 7eagles'wings, and brought you to Myself.
5'Now then, 8if you will indeedobey My voice and 9keep My covenant, then you shall be 10My bown possessionamongall the peoples, for 11all the earth is Mine;
and you shall be to Me 12a kingdom of priests and 13a holynation.' These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel."
