81All the peopleansweredtogether and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do!" And Mosesbroughtback the words of the people to the LORD.
The LORDsaid to Moses, "Behold, I will come to you in 2a thickcloud, so that the 3people may hear when I speak with you and may alsobelieve in you forever." Then Mosestold the words of the people to the LORD.
The LORD also said to Moses, "Go to the people and 4consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them 5wash their garments;
and let them be ready for the thirdday, for on 6the thirdday the LORD will comedown on MountSinai in the sight of all the people.
"You shall setbounds for the peopleallaround, saying, 'aBeware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; 7whoevertouches the mountain shall surely be put to death.
13'Nohand shall touch him, but 8he shall surely be stonedorbshotthrough; whetherbeastorman, he shall not live.' When the ram'shornsounds a longblast, they shall come up to 9the mountain."
So Moseswentdown from the mountain to the people and consecrated the people, and they washed their garments.
He said to the people, "Be ready for the thirdday; do not gonear a woman."
1610So it came about on the thirdday, when it was morning, that there were cthunder and lightningflashes and a thickcloud upon the mountain and a veryloudtrumpetsound, so that all the peoplewho were in the camptrembled.
And Mosesbrought the people out of the camp to meetGod, and they stood at the dfoot of the mountain.
