shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with
24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of
the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered
with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath
said will we do.
24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up
early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill,
and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of
24:5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which
offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of
oxen unto the LORD.
24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in
basins; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the
audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD
hath said will we do, and be obedient.
24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the
people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which
the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.
24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and
seventy of the elders of Israel:
24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under
his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as
it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
24:11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid
not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the
mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone,
and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou
mayest teach them.
24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses
went up into the mount of God.
24:14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us,
until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are
with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come

24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and
the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called
unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
24:17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like
devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the
children of Israel.
24:18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat
him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days
and forty nights.
