Israel Accepts the Lord’s Covenant

24Then the LORD instructed Moses: "Come up here to me, and bring along Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of Israel's elders. All of you must worship from a distance.H559H4872H5927H3068H175H5070H30H7657H2205H3478H7812H73502Only Moses is allowed to come near to the LORD. The others must not come near, and none of the other people are allowed to climb up the mountain with him."H4872H5066H3068H5066H5971H59273Then Moses went down to the people and repeated all the instructions and regulations the LORD had given him. All the people answered with one voice, "We will do everything the LORD has commanded."H4872H935H5608H5971H1697H3068H4941H5971H6030H259H6963H559H1697H3068H1696H62134Then Moses carefully wrote down all the LORD's instructions. Early the next morning Moses got up and built an altar at the foot of the mountain. He also set up twelve pillars, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel.H4872H3789H1697H3068H7925H1242H1129H4196H2022H4676H8147H6240H7626H34785Then he sent some of the young Israelite men to present burnt offerings and to sacrifice bulls as peace offerings to the LORD.H7971H5288H1121H3478H5927H5930H2076H8002H2077H6499H30686Moses drained half the blood from these animals into basins. The other half he splattered against the altar.H4872H3947H2677H1818H7760H101H2677H1818H2236H41967Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it aloud to the people. Again they all responded, "We will do everything the LORD has commanded. We will obey."H3947H5612H1285H7121H241H5971H559H3068H1696H6213H80858Then Moses took the blood from the basins and splattered it over the people, declaring, "Look, this blood confirms the covenant the LORD has made with you in giving you these instructions."H4872H3947H1818H2236H5971H559H1818H1285H3068H3772H16979Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain.H5927H4872H175H5070H30H7657H2205H347810There they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there seemed to be a surface of brilliant blue lapis lazuli, as clear as the sky itself.H7200H430H3478H7272H3840H4639H5601H6106H8064H289211And though these nobles of Israel gazed upon God, he did not destroy them. In fact, they ate a covenant meal, eating and drinking in his presence!H678H1121H3478H7971H3027H2372H430H398H835412Then the LORD said to Moses, "Come up to me on the mountain. Stay there, and I will give you the tablets of stone on which I have inscribed the instructions and commands so you can teach the people."H3068H559H4872H5927H2022H5414H3871H68H8451H4687H3789H338413So Moses and his assistant Joshua set out, and Moses climbed up the mountain of God.H4872H6965H8334H3091H4872H5927H2022H43014Moses told the elders, "Stay here and wait for us until we come back. Aaron and Hur are here with you. If anyone has a dispute while I am gone, consult with them."H559H2205H3427H2088H7725H175H2354H4310H1167H1697H1167H506615Then Moses climbed up the mountain, and the cloud covered it.H4872H5927H2022H6051H3680H202216And the glory of the LORD settled down on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day the LORD called to Moses from inside the cloud.H3519H3068H7931H2022H5514H6051H3680H8337H3117H7637H3117H7121H4872H8432H605117To the Israelites at the foot of the mountain, the glory of the LORD appeared at the summit like a consuming fire.H4758H3519H3068H398H784H7218H2022H5869H1121H347818Then Moses disappeared into the cloud as he climbed higher up the mountain. He remained on the mountain forty days and forty nights.H4872H935H8432H6051H5927H2022H4872H2022H705H3117H705H3915
