Radiance of Moses' Face. Then the LORD said to Moses : Write down these worls, for in accordance with these wordss I have made a covenant with you and with Israel. So Moses was there with the LORD for forty days and forty nights, without eating any food or drinking any water, and he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the ten words. As Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant in his hands, he did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while he spoke with the LORD. When Aaron, then, and the other Israelites saw Moses and noticed how radiant the ski of his face had become, they were afraid to come near him. Only after Moses called to them did Aaron and all the leaders of the community come back to him. Moses then spoke to them. Later, all the Israelites came up to him, and he enjoined on them all that the LORD had told him on Mount Sinai. When Moses finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face. Whenever Moses entered the presence of the LORD to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out again. On comng out, he would tell the Israelites all that he had been commanded. Then the Israelites would see that the skin of Moses' face was radiant; so he would again put the veil over his face until he went in to speak with the LORD.

See, I am about to drive out before you the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. Take care not to make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land that you are to enter; lest they become a snare among you. Tear down their altars; smash their sacred stones, and cut down their asherahs. You shall not bow down to any other god, for the LORD-----"Jealous" his name ----is a jealous God. Do not make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land; else, when they orosititute themselves with their god and sacrifice to them, one of them may invite you and you may partake of the sacrifice. And when you take their dauthers as wives for your sons, they will make your sons do do the same. You shall not make for yourselves molten gods. You shall keep the festival of Unleavened Braed. For seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib you are to eat unleavended bread, as I commanded you; for in the month of Abib you came out of Egypt. To me belongs every male that opens the, womb among all your livestock, whether in the herd or in the flock. The firsting of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; if you do not redeem it, you must break its neck. The firstborn among your sons you shall redeem. No one shall appear before me empty-handed. Six days you may labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the seasons of plowing and harvesting you must rest. You shall keep the feast of Weeks with the first fruits of the wheat harvest, likewise, the feast of the Ingathering at the close of the year. Tree times a year all your men shall appear before the LORD God of Israel. Since I will drive out the nations before you and enlarge your territory, no one will covet your land when you go up three times a year to appear befor the LORD, your God. You shall not offer methe blood ofsacrifice with anything leavened, nor shall the sacrifice of the Passover feast be kept overnight for next day. The choicest first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the LORD, your God. You shall not boil a young goat in is mother's milk.

34 Renewal of the Tablets. The LORD said to Moses: "Cut two stone tablets like the former, that I may write on them the words which were on the former tablets that you broke. Get ready for tomorrow morning, when you to go up Mount Sinai and there present yourself to me on the top of the mountain. No one shall come up with you, and let no one even be seen on any part of the mountain; eventhe sheep and the catt are not to graze infront of this mountain." Moses then cut two stone tables like the former, and early the next mrning he went up Moses Sinai as the LLORD had commanded him, taking in his hand the two stone tablets. The LORD came down in a cloud and stood with him there and proclaimed the name, "LORD, a God gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in love and fidelity, continuing his love for a thousand generations, and forgiveing wickedness, rebellion, and sin; yet not declaring the guilty guiltless, but bringing punishment for their parents' wickedness on children and children's children to the third and fourth generation! Moses at once knelt and bowed down to the ground. Then he said, "If I find favor with you, Lord, please, Lord, come along in our company. This is indeed a stiff-necked people; yet pardon our wickedness and sins, and claim us as your own." Religious Laws. The LORD said: Here is the covenant I will make. Before all your people I will perform marvels never before done in any nation anywhere on earth, so that all perform marvels never before done in any nation anywhere on earth, so that all the people among whom you live may see the work of the LORD. Awe-inspiring are the deeds I will perform with you! As for you, observe what I am commanding you today.

33 The LORD spoke to Moses: Go! You and the people whom you have brought up from the land of Egypt are to go up from here to the land about which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: I will give it to your descendants. Driveing out the Canaaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, I will send an angel before you to a land flowing with milk and honey. But I myself will not go up in your company, becouse you are a stiff-necked people; otherwise I might consume you on the way. When the people heard this painful news, they mourned, and no one wore any ornaments. The LORD spoke to Moses: Speak to the Israelites: You are a stiff-necked people. Were I to go up in your company even for a moment, I would destroy you. Now off with your ornaments! Let me think what to do with you. So from Mount Horeb onward, the Israelites stripped off their ornaments. Moses' Intimacy with God. Moses used to pitch a tent outside the camp at some distance. It was called the tent of meeting. Anyone who wished to consult the LORD would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp. Whenever Moses went out to the tent, the people would all rise and stand at the entrance of their own tents, watching Moses untill he entered the tent. As Moses entered the tent, the column of cloud would come down and stand at its entrance while the LORD spoke with Moses. On seeing the column of cloud stand at the entrance of the tent, all the people would rise and bow down at the entrance of their own tents. The LORD used to speak to Moses face to face, as a person speaks to a friend. Moses would then return to the camp, but his young assistant, Joshua, son of Nun, never left the tent. Moses said to the LORD, "See, you are telling me: Lend this people. Butyou have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said: You are my intimate friend;Ypu have found favor with me. Now, if I have found favor with you, please let me know your ways so that, in knowing you, I may continue to find favor with you. See, this nation is indeed your own people. The LORD answered: I myself will go along, to give you rest. Moses replied, "If you are not going yourself, do not make us go up from here. For how can it be known that I and your people have found favor with you, except by your going with us? Then we, your people and I, will be singled out fromevery other people on the surface of the earth." The LORD said to Moses; This request, too, which you have made, I will carry out, because you have found favor with me and you are my intimate friend. Then Moses said, "Please let me see your glory! The LORD answered: I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim my name, "LORD" before you; I who show favor to whom I will, I who grant mercy to whom I will. But you cannot see my face, for no one cansee me and live. Here, continued the LORD, is a place near me where you shall station yourself on the rock. When my glory passed by. Then I will remove my hand, so that you may see my back; but my face may not be seen.
