12ADONAI said to Moshe, "Come up to me on the mountain, and stay there. I will give you the stone tablets with the Torah and the mitzvot I have written on them, so that you can teach them."13Moshe got up, also Y'hoshua his assistant; and Moshe went up onto the mountain of God.14To the leaders he said, "Stay here for us, until we come back to you. See, Aharon and Hur are with you; whoever has a problem should turn to them."(S: Maftir)15Moshe went up onto the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. (A: Maftir)16The glory of ADONAI stayed on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day he called to Moshe out of the cloud.17To the people of Isra'el the glory of ADONAI looked like a raging fire on the top of the mountain.18Moshe entered the cloud and went up on the mountain; he was on the mountain forty days and nights.
