34 And the Lord said to Moses, a“Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and bI will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke. 2 So be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself to Me there con the top of the mountain. 3 And no man shall dcome up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; let neither flocks nor herds feed before that mountain.”
4 So he cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early in the morning and went up Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him; and he took in his hand the two tablets of stone.
5 Now the Lord descended in the ecloud and stood with him there, and fproclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord gGod, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in hgoodness and itruth, 7 jkeeping mercy for thousands, kforgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, lby no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”
8 So Moses made haste and mbowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 9 Then he said, “If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, nlet my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a ostiff-necked 1people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as pYour inheritance.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
