5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed , and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine,
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. 6 you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites."
7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 7 So Moses went back and summoned the elders of the people and set before them all the words the LORD had commanded him to speak.
8 And all the people answered together, and said , All that the LORD hath spoken we will do . And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. 8 The people all responded together, "We will do everything the LORD has said." So Moses brought their answer back to the LORD.
