Exodus 24

Then the Lord said to Moses,
“Come up to the Lord ,
you and Aaron, Nadab and
Abihu, and seventy of the
elders of Israel. You are
to worship at a distance,
but Moses alone is to approach
the Lord ; the others must
not come near. And the
people may not come up with him.”

When Moses went and told
the people all the Lord ’s
words and laws, they responded
with one voice, “Everything
the Lord has said we will do.”
Moses then wrote down
everything the Lord had said.
He got up early the next
morning and built an altar
at the foot of the mountain
and set up twelve stone pillars
representing the twelve
tribes of Israel. Then he
sent young Israelite men, and
they offered burnt offerings
and sacrificed young bulls as
fellowship offerings to the Lord.
Moses took half of the blood
and put it in bowls, and the
other half he splashed against
the altar. Then he took the
Book of the Covenant and read
it to the people. They
responded, “We will do
everything the Lord has
said; we will obey.”

Moses then took the blood,
sprinkled it on the people
and said, “This is the blood
of the covenant that the
Lord has made with you in
accordance with all these words.”

Moses and Aaron, Nadab
and Abihu, and the seventy
elders of Israel went up and
saw the God of Israel. Under
his feet was something like
a pavement made of lapis lazuli,
as bright blue as the sky.
But God did not raise his
hand against these leaders
of the Israelites; they saw
God, and they ate and drank.

The Lord said to Moses,
“Come up to me on the mountain
and stay here, and I will give
you the tablets of stone with
the law and commandments I
have written for their instruction.”

Then Moses set out with Joshua
his aide, and Moses went up
on the mountain of God. He said
to the elders, “Wait here for
us until we come back to you.
Aaron and Hur are with you,
and anyone involved in a dispute
can go to them.”

When Moses went up on the mountain,
the cloud covered it, and the
glory of the Lord settled on
Mount Sinai. For six days
the cloud covered the mountain,
and on the seventh day the
Lord called to Moses from
within the cloud. To the
Israelites the glory of the
Lord looked like a consuming
fire on top of the mountain.

Then Moses entered the cloud
as he went on up the mountain.
And he stayed on the mountain
forty days and forty nights.
