Exodus 19:1–8

Israel at Mount Sinai

19 In the third month after the children of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on the same day, athey came to the Wilderness of Sinai. For they had departed from bRephidim, had come to the Wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness. So Israel camped there before cthe mountain.

And dMoses went up to God, and the Lord ecalled to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: f‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how gI 1bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now htherefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and ikeep My covenant, then jyou shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is kMine. And you shall be to Me a lkingdom of priests and a mholy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”

So Moses came and called for the nelders of the people, and 2laid before them all these words which the Lord commanded him. Then oall the people answered together and said, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do.” So Moses brought back the words of the people to the Lord.
