Exodus 34

1Moses is commanded to prepare new tables, and to go up again to the top of the mount. 4The name of the Lord is there proclaimed before him. 8Moses entreateth God to go with the people. 10God maketh a covenant with them, in which he restraineth idolatry; and 18, 21, 22, 23, 25repeateth certain duties before prescribed. 27Moses continueth in the mount forty days, and by God's command writeth upon the tables the ten commandments. 29On his return his face shineth, and he covereth it with a vail.

1 And the Lord said unto Moses, 1Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the 2words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

2 And be ready in the morning, and 1come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

3 And no man shall 1come 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 1early 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 1descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and 2proclaimed the name of the Lord.

6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The 1Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 1Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that 2will 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 1bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

9 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let 1my Lord, I pray thee, 2go among us; for it is a 3stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine 4inheritance.

10 ¶ And he said, Behold, 1I make a covenant: before all thy people I will 2do 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 3a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

11 1Observe thou that which I command thee this day: 2behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

12 1Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:

13 But ye 1shall destroy their altars, break their aimages, and cut down their groves:

14 For thou shalt 1worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is 2Jealous, is a jealous God:

15 1Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a 2whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou 3eat of his sacrifice;

16 And thou 1take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

17 Thou shalt 1make thee no molten gods.

18 ¶ The 1feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the 2time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

19 All 1that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or asheep, that is male.

20 But 1the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a alamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And 2none shall appear before me empty.

211Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

22 ¶ And 1thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the ayear's end.

231Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel.

24 For 1I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: 2neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the Lord thy God thrice in the year.

25 1Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover 2be left unto the morning.

26 The 1first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the Lord thy God. 2Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

27 And the Lord said unto Moses, 1Write thou these words: for 2after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

28 And 1he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And 2he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten acommandments.

29 ¶ And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the 1two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that 2Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone 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 1afraid to come nigh him.

31 And Moses 1called 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 he 1gave 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 1a vail on his face.

34 But 1when Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he 2took the vail off, until he came out. And 3he 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 1the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
