9 Only take heed to thyself, and hkeep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but iteach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons; 10 Specially kthe day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. 11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the lmountain burned with fire unto the †midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. 12 mAnd the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: nye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; o†only ye heard a voice. 13 pAnd he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten qcommandments; and rhe wrote them upon two tables of stone.
