19He said, "I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim the name Yahweh before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."20But He answered, "You cannot see My face, for no one can see Me and live."21The Lord said, "Here is a place near Me. You are to stand on the rock,22and when My glory passes by, I will put you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.23Then I will take My hand away, and you will see My back, but My face will not be seen."
1The Lord said to Moses, "Cut two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.2Be prepared by morning. Come up Mount Sinai in the morning and stand before Me on the mountaintop.3No one may go up with you; in fact, no one must be seen anywhere on the mountain. Even the flocks and herds are not to graze in front of that mountain."
