1 Moysi quoque dixit: "Ascende ad Dominum, tu et Aa ron, Nadab et Abiu et septuaginta senes ex Israel, et adorabitis procul.
2 Solusque Moyses ascendet ad Dominum, et illi non appropinquabunt, nec populus ascendet cum eo"
3 Venit ergo Moyses et narravit plebi omnia verba Domini atque iudicia; responditque omnis populus una voce: "Omnia verba Domini, quae locutus est, faciemus"
4 Scripsit autem Moyses universos sermones Domini; et mane consurgens aedificavit altare ad radices montis et duodecim lapides per duodecim tribus Israel.
5 Misitque iuvenes de filiis Israel, et obtulerunt holocausta; immolaveruntque victimas pacificas Domino vitulos.
6 Tulit itaque Moyses dimidiam partem sanguinis et misit in crateras; partem autem residuam respersit super altare.
7 Assumensque volumen foederis legit, audiente populo, qui dixerunt: "Omnia, quae locutus est Dominus, faciemus et erimus oboedientes "
8 Ille vero sumptum sanguinem respersit in populum et ait: "Hic est sanguis foederis, quod pepigit Dominus vobiscum super cunctis sermonibus his"
9 Ascenderuntque Moyses et Aaron, Nadab et Abiu et septuaginta de senioribus Israel.
10 Et viderunt Deum Israel, et sub pedibus eius quasi opus lapidis sapphirini et quasi ipsum caelum, cum serenum est.
11 Nec in electos filiorum Israel misit manum suam; videruntque Deum et comederunt ac biberunt.
12 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: "Ascende ad me in montem et esto ibi; daboque tibi tabulas lapideas et legem ac mandata, quae scripsi, ut doceas eos "
13 Surrexerunt Moyses et Iosue minister eius; ascendensque Moyses in montem Dei
14 senioribus ait: "Exspectate hic, donec revertamur ad vos. Habetis Aaron et Hur vobiscum; si quid natum fuerit quaestionis, referetis ad eos"
15 Cumque ascendisset Moyses in montem, operuit nubes montem;
16 et habitavit gloria Domini super Sinai tegens illum nube sex diebus; septimo autem die vocavit eum de medio caliginis.
17 Erat autem species gloriae Domini quasi ignis ardens super verticem montis in conspectu filiorum Israel.
18 Ingressusque Moyses medium nebulae ascendit in montem; et fuit ibi quadraginta diebus et quadraginta noctibus.
King James Version
1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.
2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
3 ¶ And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.
4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.
6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.
8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.
9 ¶ Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:
10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
12 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.
13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.
14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.
15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.
16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.
