1He then said to Moses, 'Come up to Yahweh, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of theelders of Israel and bow down at a distance. 2Moses alone will approach Yahweh; the others wil not approach, nor wil the people come up withhim.' 3Moses went and told the people al Yahweh's words and al the laws, and al the people answered withone voice, 'All the words Yahweh has spoken we wil carry out!' 4Moses put al Yahweh's words into writing, and early next morning he built an altar at the foot of themountain, with twelve standing-stones for the twelve tribes of Israel. 5Then he sent certain young Israelites to offer burnt offerings and sacrifice bul ocks to Yahweh ascommunion sacrifices. 6Moses then took half the blood and put it into basins, and the other half he sprinkled on the altar. 7Then, taking the Book of the Covenant, he read it to the listening people, who then said, 'We shall do everything that Yahweh has said; we shall obey.' 8Moses then took the blood and sprinkled it over the people, saying, 'This is the blood of the covenantwhich Yahweh has made with you, entailing all these stipulations.' 9Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and seventy elders of Israel then went up, 10and they saw the God of Israel beneath whose feet there was what looked like a sapphire pavementpure as the heavens themselves, 11but he did no harm to the Israelite notables; they actually gazed on God and then ate and drank. 12Yahweh said to Moses, 'Come up to me on the mountain. Stay there, and I will give you the stonetablets -- the law and the commandment -- which I have written for their instruction.' 13Moses made ready, with Joshua his assistant, and they went up the mountain of God. 14He said to the elders, 'Wait here for us until we come back to you. You have Aaron and Hur with you;if anyone has any matter to settle, let him go to them.' 15Moses then went up the mountain. Cloud covered the mountain. 16The glory of Yahweh rested on Mount Sinai and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh dayYahweh cal ed to Moses from inside the cloud. 17To the watching Israelites, the glory of Yahweh looked like a devouring fire on the mountain top. 18Moses went right into the cloud and went on up the mountain. Moses stayed on the mountain for fortydays and forty nights.
