EX 24:1  And he said to Moses: Come up to the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel, and you shall adore afar off.

EX 24:2  And Moses alone shall come up to the Lord, but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people come up with him.

EX 24:3  So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice: We will do all the words of the Lord, which he hath spoken.

EX 24:4  And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord: and rising in the morning he built an altar at the foot of the mount, and twelve titles according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

EX 24:5  And he sent young men of the children of Israel, and they offered holocausts, and sacrificed pacific victims of calves to the Lord.

EX 24:6  Then Moses took half of the blood, and put it into bowls: and the rest he poured upon the altar.

EX 24:7  And taking the book of the covenant, he read it in the hearing of the people: and they said: All things that the Lord hath spoken we will do, we will be obedient.

EX 24:8  And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.

EX 24:9  Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel went up:

EX 24:10  And they saw the God of Israel: and under his feet as it were a work of sapphire stone, and as the heaven, when clear.

EX 24:11  Neither did he lay his hand upon those of the children of Israel, that retired afar off, and they saw God, and they did eat and drink.

EX 24:12  And the Lord said to Moses: Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and the law, and the commandments which I have written: that thou mayst teach them.

EX 24:13  Moses rose up, and his minister Josue: and Moses going up into the mount of God,

EX 24:14  Said to the ancients: Wait ye here till we return to you. You have Aaron and Hur with you: if any question shall arise, you shall refer it to them.

EX 24:15  And when Moses was gone up, a cloud covered the mount.

EX 24:16  And the glory of the Lord dwelt upon Sinai, covering it with a cloud six days: and the seventh day he called him out of the midst of the cloud.

EX 24:17  And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like a burning fire upon the top of the mount, in the eyes of the children of Israel.

EX 24:18  And Moses, entering into the midst of the cloud, went up into the mountain: and he was there forty days, and forty nights.
