At that time the Lord said to me, "Carve out two tablets of stone like the former ones, and come up to me on the mountain, and make an ark of wood.
I will write on the tablets the words that were on the former tablets, which you smashed, and you shall put them in the ark."
So I made an ark of acacia wood, cut two tablets of stone like the former ones, and went up the mountain with the two tablets in my hand.
Then he wrote on the tablets the same words as before, the ten commandments a that the Lord had spoken to you on the mountain out of the fire on the day of the assembly; and the Lord gave them to me.
So I turned and came down from the mountain, and put the tablets in the ark that I had made; and there they are, as the Lord commanded me.
(The Israelites journeyed from Beeroth-bene-jaakan b to Moserah. There Aaron died, and there he was buried; his son Eleazar succeeded him as priest.
From there they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land with flowing streams.
At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister to him, and to bless in his name, to this day.
