34 And the Lord said unto Moses, aHew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: band I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, cwhich thou brakest. 2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me din the top of the mount. 3 And no man shall ecome up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount. 4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone. 5 And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and fproclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, gThe Lord, The Lord God, merciful and hgracious, longsuffering, and abundant in igoodness and itruth, 7 kKeeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and lthat will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. 8 And Moses made haste, and mbowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. 9 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, nlet my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for oit is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for pthine inheritance. 10 And he said, Behold, qI make a covenant: before all thy people I will rdo marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the Lord: for it is sa terrible thing that I will do with thee. 11 tObserve thou that which I command thee this day: behold, uI drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. 12 xTake heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for ya snare in the midst of thee: 13 But ye shall zdestroy their altars, break their †images, and acut down their groves: 14 For thou shalt worship bno other god: for the Lord, whose cname is Jealous, is a djealous God: 15 eLest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they fgo a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one gcall thee, and thou heat of his sacrifice; 16 And thou take of itheir daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters kgo a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods. 17 lThou shalt make thee no molten gods. 18 The feast of munleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the nmonth Abib thou camest out from Egypt. 19 oAll that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or ||sheep, that is male. 20 But pthe firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a ||lamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me qempty. 21 rSix days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest. 22 sAnd thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the †year’s end. 23 tThrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel. 24 For I will ucast out the nations before thee, and xenlarge thy borders: yneither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the Lord thy God thrice in the year. 25 zThou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; aneither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning. 26 bThe first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the Lord thy God. cThou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk. 27 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words dI have made a covenant with thee and with Israel. 28 eAnd he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And fhe wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten †commandments.
29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the gtwo tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face hshone while he talked with him. 30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. 31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them. 32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and ihe gave them in commandment all that the Lord had spoken with him in mount Sinai. 33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put ka vail on his face. 34 But lwhen Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded. 35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
