33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou aand the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, bUnto thy seed will I give it: 2 And I will send can angel before thee; dand I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: 3 eUnto a land flowing with milk and honey: ffor I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a gstiffnecked people: lest hI consume thee in the way. 4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, ithey mourned: kand no man did put on him his ornaments. 5 For the Lord had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, lYe are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in ma moment, and nconsume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee. 6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.
7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, oand called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which psought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp. 8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man qat his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. 9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the rcloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord rtalked with Moses. 10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and sworshipped, every man in his tent door. 11 And tthe Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but uhis servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. 12 And Moses said unto the Lord, See, xthou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, yI know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. 13 Now therefore, I pray thee, zif I have found grace in thy sight, ashew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is bthy people. 14 And he said, cMy presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee drest. 15 And he said unto him, eIf thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? fis it not in that thou goest with us? so gshall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth. 17 And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for hthou hast found grace in my sight, and iI know thee by name. 18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me kthy glory. 19 And he said, I will make all lmy goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; mand will be ngracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. 20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for othere shall no man see me, and live. 21 And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: 22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee pin a clift of the rock, and will qcover thee with my hand while I pass by: 23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall rnot be seen.
