while 1Moses went up to God. 2The LORD called to him out of the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel:
3You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how 4I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.
Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be 5my treasured possession among all peoples, for 6all the earth is mine;
and you shall be to me a 7kingdom of priests and 8a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel."
So Moses came and called the elders of the people and set before them all these words that the LORD had commanded him.
9All the people answered together and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do." And Moses reported the words of the people to the LORD.
