Ver. 1 AND he said unto Mofes, 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 Mofes 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 anfwered with one Voice, and said, All the Words which the LORD hath faid, will we do.

* That is the River Euphrates,

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 facrificed 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.

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 coyered the Mount.

16 And the GLORY of the LORD ABODe upon Mount Sinai : and the Cloud covered it fix Days : and the seventh Day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the Cloud.

Dan, vii. 9 I beheld, till the THRONES were cast down, and the ANCIENT of Days did fit, whose Garment was white as Snow, and the Hair of his Head was like the pure Wooll : his THRONE was like the FIERY FLAME, and his Wheels as burning FIRE.

6 Then flew one of the SERAPHIMS unto me, having a live Coal in his Hand, which he had taken with the Tongs from off the Altar.

7 And he said it upon my Mouth, and laid Lo, this haih TOUCHED thy Lips, and thine INIQUITY is taken away, and thy SIN PURGED.
