12 The LordA said to Moses,B “Come up to me on the mountain, and waitC there; and I will give you the tabletsD of stone, with the lawE and the commandment,F which I have written for their instruction.”G
13 So Moses set outH with his assistant Joshua,I and Moses went up into the mountain of God.J 14 To the eldersK he had said, “WaitL here for us, until we come to you again;M forN AaronO and HurP are with you; whoever has a dispute may goQ to them.”
15 Then Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloudR covered the mountain. 16 The gloryS of the Lord settledT on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for sixU days; on the seventhV day he called to Moses out of the cloud.
17 Now the appearanceW of the glory of the Lord was like a devouringX fire on the top of the mountain in the sightY of the peopleZ of Israel.AA 18 Moses entered the cloud, and went up on the mountain. Moses was on the mountain for forty days and forty nights.
