Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he said to Moses: Come up to the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel, and you shall adore afar off. 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 And Moses alone shall come up to the Lord, but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people come 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 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice: We will do all the words of the Lord, which he hath spoken. 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 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord: and rising in the morning, he built an altar at the foot of the mount, and twelve titles according to 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 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, and they offered holocausts, and sacrificed pacific victims of calves to the Lord. 5 Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as fellowship offerings to the LORD.
6 Then Moses took half of the blood, and put it into bowls; and the rest he poured upon the altar. 6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in bowls, and the other half he sprinkled on the altar.
7 And taking the book of the covenant, he read it in the hearing of the people: and they said: All things that the Lord hath spoken, we will do, we will 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 And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath 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 and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel went up: 9 Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up
10 And they saw the God of Israel: and under his feet as it were a work of sapphire stone, and as the heaven, when clear. 10 and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear as the sky itself.
11 Neither did he lay his hand upon those of the children of Israel, that retired afar off, and they saw God, and they did eat and drink. 11 But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.
12 And the Lord said to Moses: Come up to me into the mount, and be there; and I will give thee tables of stone, and the law, and the commandments which I have written; that thou mayest 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, and his minister Josue: and Moses going up into the mount of God, 13 Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and Moses went up on the mountain of God.
14 Said to the ancients: Wait ye here till we return to you. You have Aaron and Hur with you: if any question shall arise, you shall refer it 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 And when Moses was gone up, a cloud covered the mount. 15 When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it,
16 And the glory of the Lord dwelt upon Sinai, covering it with a cloud six days: and the seventh day he called him 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 And the sight of the glory of the Lord, was like a burning fire upon the top of the mount, 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 And Moses entering into the midst of the cloud, went up into the mountain: And he was there 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.
