The New Stone Tablets

34 The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones,p and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets,q which you broke.r Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai.s Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain. No one is to come with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain;t not even the flocks and herds may graze in front of the mountain.”

So Moses chiseledu out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands.v Then the Lord came down in the cloudw and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord.x And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionatey and gracious God, slow to anger,z abounding in lovea and faithfulness,b maintaining love to thousands,c and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.d Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;e he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.”f

Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped. “Lord,” he said, “if I have found favorg in your eyes, then let the Lord go with us.h Although this is a stiff-neckedi people, forgive our wickedness and our sin,j and take us as your inheritance.”k

10 Then the Lord said: “I am making a covenantl with you. Before all your people I will do wondersm never before done in any nation in all the world.n The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the Lord, will do for you. 11 Obey what I commando you today. I will drive out before you the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.p 12 Be careful not to make a treatyq with those who live in the land where you are going, or they will be a snarer among you. 13 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.a s 14 Do not worship any other god,t for the Lord, whose nameu is Jealous, is a jealous God.v
