1 H7992 In the third H2320 month H1121 , when the children H3478 of Israel H3318 were gone forth [H8800] H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt H3117 , the same day H935 came [H8804] H4057 they into the wilderness H5514 of Sinai.
2 H5265 For they were departed [H8799] H7508 from Rephidim H935 , and were come [H8799] H4057 to the desert H5514 of Sinai H2583 , and had pitched [H8799] H4057 in the wilderness H3478 ; and there Israel H2583 camped [H8799] H2022 before the mount.
3 H4872 And Moses H5927 went up [H8804] H430 unto God H3068 , and the LORD H7121 called [H8799] H2022 unto him out of the mountain H559 , saying [H8800] H559 , Thus shalt thou say [H8799] H1004 to the house H3290 of Jacob H5046 , and tell [H8686] H1121 the children H3478 of Israel;
4 H7200 Ye have seen [H8804] H6213 what I did [H8804] H4714 unto the Egyptians H5375 , and how I bare [H8799] H5404 you on eagles H3671 ' wings H935 , and brought [H8686] you unto myself.
5 H8085 Now therefore, if ye will obey [H8799] H6963 my voice H8085 indeed [H8800] H8104 , and keep [H8804] H1285 my covenant H5459 , then ye shall be a peculiar treasure H5971 unto me above all people H776 : for all the earth is mine:
6 H4467 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom H3548 of priests H6918 , and an holy H1471 nation H1697 . These are the words H1696 which thou shalt speak [H8762] H1121 unto the children H3478 of Israel.
7 H4872 And Moses H935 came [H8799] H7121 and called [H8799] H2205 for the elders H5971 of the people H7760 , and laid [H8799] H6440 before their faces H1697 all these words H3068 which the LORD H6680 commanded [H8765] him.
8 H5971 And all the people H6030 answered [H8799] H3162 together H559 , and said [H8799] H3068 , All that the LORD H1696 hath spoken [H8765] H6213 we will do [H8799] H4872 . And Moses H7725 returned [H8686] H1697 the words H5971 of the people H3068 unto the LORD.
9 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H4872 unto Moses H935 , Lo, I come [H8802] H5645 unto thee in a thick H6051 cloud H5971 , that the people H8085 may hear [H8799] H1696 when I speak [H8763] H539 with thee, and believe [H8686] H5769 thee for ever H4872 . And Moses H5046 told [H8686] H1697 the words H5971 of the people H3068 unto the LORD.
10 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H4872 unto Moses H3212 , Go [H8798] H5971 unto the people H6942 , and sanctify [H8765] H3117 them to day H4279 and to morrow H3526 , and let them wash [H8765] H8071 their clothes,
11 H3559 And be ready [H8737] H7992 against the third H3117 day H7992 : for the third H3117 day H3068 the LORD H3381 will come down [H8799] H5869 in the sight H5971 of all the people H2022 upon mount H5514 Sinai.
12 H1379 And thou shalt set bounds [H8689] H5971 unto the people H5439 round about H559 , saying [H8800] H8104 , Take heed [H8734] H5927 to yourselves, that ye go not up [H8800] H2022 into the mount H5060 , or touch [H8800] H7097 the border H5060 of it: whosoever toucheth [H8802] H2022 the mount H4191 shall be surely [H8800] H4191 put to death [H8714] :
13 H3027 There shall not an hand H5060 touch [H8799] H5619 it, but he shall surely [H8800] H5619 be stoned [H8735] H176 , or H3384 shot [H8735] H3384 through [H8800] H929 ; whether it be beast H518 or H376 man H2421 , it shall not live [H8799] H3104 : when the trumpet H4900 soundeth long [H8800] H5927 , they shall come up [H8799] H2022 to the mount.
14 H4872 And Moses H3381 went down [H8799] H2022 from the mount H5971 unto the people H6942 , and sanctified [H8762] H5971 the people H3526 ; and they washed [H8762] H8071 their clothes.
15 H559 And he said [H8799] H5971 unto the people H1961 , Be [H8798] H3559 ready [H8737] H7969 against the third H3117 day H5066 : come [H8799] H802 not at your wives.
16 H7992 And it came to pass on the third H3117 day H1242 in the morning H6963 , that there were thunders H1300 and lightnings H3515 , and a thick H6051 cloud H2022 upon the mount H6963 , and the voice H7782 of the trumpet H3966 exceeding H2389 loud H5971 ; so that all the people H4264 that was in the camp H2729 trembled [H8799] .
17 H4872 And Moses H3318 brought forth [H8686] H5971 the people H4264 out of the camp H7125 to meet [H8800] H430 with God H3320 ; and they stood [H8691] H8482 at the nether H2022 part of the mount.
18 H2022 And mount H5514 Sinai H6225 was altogether on a smoke [H8804] H6440 , because H834 H3068 the LORD H3381 descended [H8804] H784 upon it in fire H6227 : and the smoke H5927 thereof ascended [H8799] H6227 as the smoke H3536 of a furnace H2022 , and the whole mount H2729 quaked [H8799] H3966 greatly.
19 H6963 And when the voice H7782 of the trumpet H6963 sounded H1980 long [H8802] H2390 , and waxed louder H3966 and louder H4872 , Moses H1696 spake [H8762] H430 , and God H6030 answered [H8799] H6963 him by a voice.
20 H3068 And the LORD H3381 came down [H8799] H2022 upon mount H5514 Sinai H7218 , on the top H2022 of the mount H3068 : and the LORD H7121 called [H8799] H4872 Moses H413 up to H7218 the top H2022 of the mount H4872 ; and Moses H5927 went up [H8799] .
21 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H4872 unto Moses H3381 , Go down [H8798] H5749 , charge [H8685] H5971 the people H2040 , lest they break through [H8799] H3068 unto the LORD H7200 to gaze [H8800] H7227 , and many H5307 of them perish [H8804] .
22 H3548 And let the priests H5066 also, which come near [H8737] H3068 to the LORD H6942 , sanctify [H8691] H3068 themselves, lest the LORD H6555 break forth [H8799] upon them.
23 H4872 And Moses H559 said [H8799] H3068 unto the LORD H5971 , The people H3201 cannot [H8799] H5927 come up [H8800] H2022 to mount H5514 Sinai H5749 : for thou chargedst [H8689] H559 us, saying [H8800] H1379 , Set bounds [H8685] H2022 about the mount H6942 , and sanctify [H8765] it.
24 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H3212 unto him, Away [H8798] H3381 , get thee down [H8798] H5927 , and thou shalt come up [H8804] H175 , thou, and Aaron H3548 with thee: but let not the priests H5971 and the people H2040 break through [H8799] H5927 to come up [H8800] H3068 unto the LORD H6555 , lest he break forth [H8799] upon them.
