1 Three months to the day after leaving Egypt, the Israelites reached the desert of Sinai.
Exod 12:6 Exod 16:1 Exod 12:2 Lev 23:16-18 Num 33:15
2 Setting out from Rephidim, they reached the desert of Sinai and pitched camp in the desert; there, facing the mountain, Israel pitched camp.
Exod 3:1 Exod 17:1 Exod 3:12 Exod 17:8 Exod 18:5 Acts 7:30 Acts 7:38
3 Moses then went up to God, and Yahweh called to him from the mountain, saying, 'Say this to the House of Jacob! Tell the Israelites,
Exod 3:4 Acts 7:38 Exod 20:21 Deut 5:5-31 Exod 24:15-18 Exod 34:2
4 "You have seen for yourselves what I did to the Egyptians and how I carried you away on eagle's wings and brought you to me.
Isa 63:9 Deut 29:2 Deut 32:11-12 Rev 12:14 Isa 40:31 Deut 4:9 Deut 4:33-36
5 So now, if you are really prepared to obey me and keep my covenant, you, out of all peoples, shall be my personal possession, for the whole world is mine.
Deut 7:6 Deut 14:2 Deut 26:18 Titus 2:14 Mal 3:17 Deut 5:2 Job 41:11
6 For me you shall be a kingdom of priests, a holy nation." Those are the words you are to say to the Israelites.'
1Pet 2:9 Rev 5:10 1Pet 2:5 Deut 7:6 Deut 26:19 Isa 62:12 Lev 11:44-45
7 So Moses went and summoned the people's elders and acquainted them with everything that Yahweh had bidden him,
Exod 4:29-30 1Cor 15:1 Exod 3:16
8 and the people all replied with one accord, 'Whatever Yahweh has said, we will do.' Moses then reported to Yahweh what the people had said.
Exod 24:3 Exod 24:7 Deut 5:27-29 Deut 26:17-19 Exod 20:19 Josh 24:24 Neh 10:29
9 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Look, I shall come to you in a dense cloud so that the people will hear when I speak to you and believe you ever after.' Moses then told Yahweh what the people had said.
Deut 4:36 Deut 4:11-12 Exod 19:16 Exod 24:15-16 Exod 14:31 Exod 20:21 Matt 17:5
10 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Go to the people and tell them to sanctify themselves today and tomorrow. They must wash their clothes
Gen 35:2 Lev 11:44-45 Lev 15:5 Heb 10:22 Josh 3:5 Josh 7:13 Lev 11:25
11 and be ready for the day after tomorrow; for the day after tomorrow, in the sight of all the people, Yahweh will descend on Mount Sinai.
Exod 19:16 Deut 33:2 Exod 34:5 Exod 3:8 Exod 19:18 Exod 19:20 Hab 3:3-6
12 You will mark out the limits of the mountain and say, "Take care not to go up the mountain or to touch the edge of it. Anyone who touches the mountain will be put to death.
Heb 12:20-21 Deut 2:4 Deut 4:9 Exod 10:28 Exod 19:21 Exod 19:23 Exod 34:12
13 No one may lay a hand on him: he must be stoned or shot by arrow; whether man or beast, he shall not live." When the ram's horn sounds a long blast, they must go up the mountain.'
Exod 19:16 Exod 19:19 Heb 12:20 1Cor 15:52 1Thess 4:16 Exod 21:28-29 Lev 20:15-16
14 So Moses came down from the mountain to the people; he made the people sanctify themselves and they washed their clothes.
15 He then said to the people, 'Be ready for the day after tomorrow; do not touch a woman.'
1Cor 7:5 1Sam 21:4-5 Exod 19:11 2Pet 3:11-12 Amos 4:12 Exod 19:16 Joel 2:16
16 Now at daybreak two days later, there were peals of thunder and flashes of lightning, dense cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast; and, in the camp, all the people trembled.
Heb 12:18-19 Heb 12:21 Ps 18:11-14 Rev 4:1 Exod 9:23 Exod 19:9 Exod 20:18
17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet God; and they took their stand at the bottom of the mountain.
Deut 4:10 Deut 5:5
18 Mount Sinai was entirely wrapped in smoke, because Yahweh had descended on it in the form of fire. The smoke rose like smoke from a furnace and the whole mountain shook violently.
Ps 144:5 Exod 24:17 Judg 5:5 Rev 15:8 Exod 3:2 Gen 19:28 Jer 4:24
19 Louder and louder grew the trumpeting. Moses spoke, and God answered him in the thunder.
Ps 81:7 Exod 19:16 Exod 19:13 Heb 12:21 Neh 9:13
20 Yahweh descended on Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain, and Yahweh called Moses to the top of the mountain; and Moses went up.
Neh 9:13 Deut 9:9 Exod 19:3 Exod 19:11 Exod 24:12-13 Exod 24:18 Exod 34:2
21 Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Go down and warn the people not to break through to look at Yahweh, or many of them will perish.
1Sam 6:19 Exod 3:5 Eccl 5:1 Exod 3:3 Exod 19:12-13 Exod 33:20 Heb 12:28-29
22 Even the priests, who do have access to Yahweh, must sanctify themselves, or Yahweh may burst out against them.'
Exod 24:5 1Chr 13:9-11 1Chr 15:13 1Cor 11:30-32 2Chr 30:3 2Chr 30:15 2Chr 30:18-19
23 Moses said to Yahweh, 'The people cannot come up Mount Sinai, since you yourself warned us to mark out the limits of the mountain and declare it sacred.'
Exod 19:12 Josh 3:4-5
24 Yahweh said, 'Away with you! Go down! Then come back bringing Aaron with you. But do not allow the priests and people to break through to come up to Yahweh, or he may burst out against them.'
Heb 4:16 2Cor 3:7-9 Exod 19:12 Exod 19:21-22 Exod 24:1 Exod 24:9 Gal 3:10-11
25 So Moses went down to the people and spoke to them.
