World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He said to Moses, "Come up to Yahweh, you, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship from a distance. 1 Then he said to Moses, "Come up to the LORD, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel. You are to worship at a distance,
2 Moses alone shall come near to Yahweh, but they shall not come near, neither shall the people go up with him." 2 but Moses alone is to approach the LORD; the others must not come near. And the people may not come up with him."
3 Moses came and told the people all the words of Yahweh, and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice, and said, "All the words which Yahweh has spoken will we do." 3 When Moses went and told the people all the LORD's words and laws, they responded with one voice, "Everything the LORD has said we will do."
4 Moses wrote all the words of Yahweh, and rose up early in the morning, and built an altar under the mountain, and twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel. 4 Moses then wrote down everything the LORD had said. He got up early the next morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and set up twelve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 He sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace-offerings of oxen to Yahweh. 5 Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as fellowship offerings to the LORD.
6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in bowls, and the other half he sprinkled on the altar.
7 He took the book of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people, and they said, "All that Yahweh has spoken will we do, and be obedient." 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, "We will do everything the LORD has said; we will obey."
8 Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, "Look, this is the blood of the covenant, which Yahweh has made with you concerning all these words." 8 Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, "This is the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words."
9 Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up. 9 Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up
10 They saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was like a paved work of sapphire stone, like the skies for clearness. 10 and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear as the sky itself.
11 He didn't lay his hand on the nobles of the children of Israel. They saw God, and ate and drank. 11 But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.
12 Yahweh said to Moses, "Come up to me on the mountain, and stay here, and I will give you the tables of stone with the law and the commands that I have written, that you may teach them." 12 The LORD said to Moses, "Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone, with the law and commands I have written for their instruction."
13 Moses rose up with Joshua, his servant, and Moses went up onto God's Mountain. 13 Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and Moses went up on the mountain of God.
14 He said to the elders, "Wait here for us, until we come again to you. Behold, Aaron and Hur are with you. Whoever is involved in a dispute can go to them." 14 He said to the elders, "Wait here for us until we come back to you. Aaron and Hur are with you, and anyone involved in a dispute can go to them."
15 Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. 15 When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it,
16 The glory of Yahweh settled on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. The seventh day he called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 16 and the glory of the LORD settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the LORD called to Moses from within the cloud.
17 The appearance of the glory of Yahweh was like devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel. 17 To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.
18 Moses entered into the midst of the cloud, and went up on the mountain; and Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights. 18 Then Moses entered the cloud as he went on up the mountain. And he stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights.
