1And the Lord said to Moses, Hew for thyself two tables of stone, as also the first were, and come up to me to the mountain; and I will write upon the tables the words, which were on the first tables, which thou brokest.
2And be ready by the morning, and thou shalt go up to the Mount Sinai, and shalt stand there for me on the top of the mountain.
3And let no one go up with thee, nor be seen in all the mountain; and let not the sheep and oxen feed near that mountain.
4And Moses hewed two tables of stone, as also the first were; and Moses having arisen early, went up to the Mount Sinai, as the Lord appointed him; and Moses took the two tables of stone.
5And the Lord descended in a cloud, and stood near him there, and called by the name of the Lord.
6And the Lord passed by before his face, and proclaimed, The Lord God, pitiful and merciful, long-suffering and very compassionate, and true,
7and keeping justice and mercy for thousands, taking away iniquity, and unrighteousness, and sins; and he will not clear the guilty; bringing the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and to the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.
8And Moses hastened, and bowed to the earth and worshiped;
9and said, If I have found grace before thee, let my Lord go with us; for the people is stiff-necked: and thou shalt take away our sins and our iniquities, and we will be thine.
10And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I establish a covenant for thee in the presence of all thy people; I will do glorious things, which have not been done in all the earth, or in any nation; and all the people among whom thou art shall see the works of the Lord, that they are wonderful, which I will do for thee.
11Do thou take heed to all things whatsoever I command thee: behold, I cast out before your face the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite, and the Hittite, and Hivite, and Girgashite and Jebusite:
12take heed to thyself, lest at any time thou make a covenant with the dwellers on the land, into which thou art entering, lest it be to thee a stumbling block among you.
13Ye shall destroy their altars, and break in pieces their pillars, and ye shall cut down their groves, and the graven images of their gods ye shall burn with fire.
14For ye shall not worship strange gods, for the Lord God, a jealous name, is a jealous God;
15lest at any time thou make a covenant with the dwellers on the land, and they go a-whoring after their gods, and sacrifice to their gods, and they call thee, and thou shouldest eat of their feasts,
16and thou shouldest take of their daughters to thy sons, and thou shouldest give of thy daughters to their sons; and thy daughters should go a-whoring after their gods, and thy sons should go a-whoring after their gods.
17And thou shalt not make to thyself molten gods.
18And thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread, as I have charged thee, at the season in the month of new corn; for in the month of new corn thou camest out from Egypt.

19The males are mine, everything that opens the womb; every firstborn of oxen, and every firstborn of sheep.
20And the firstborn of an ass thou shalt redeem with a sheep, and if thou wilt not redeem it thou shalt pay a price: every firstborn of thy sons shalt thou redeem: thou shalt not appear before me empty.
21Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: there shall be rest in seedtime and harvest.
22And thou shalt keep to me the feast of weeks, the beginning of wheat harvest; and the feast of ingathering in the middle of the year.
23Three times in the year shall every male of thine appear before the Lord the God of Israel.
24For when I shall have cast out the nations before thy face, and shall have enlarged thy coasts, no one shall desire thy land, whenever thou mayest go up to appear before the Lord thy God, three times in the year.
25Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifices with leaven, neither shall the sacrifices of the feast of the Passover remain till the morning.
26The firstfruits of thy land shalt thou put into the house of the Lord thy God: thou shalt not boil a lamb in his mother’s milk.
27And the Lord said to Moses, Write these words for thyself, for on these words I have established a covenant with thee and with Israel.
28And Moses was there before the Lord forty days, and forty nights; he did not eat bread, and he did not drink water; and he wrote upon the tables these words of the covenant, the ten sayings.
29And when Moses went down from the mountain, there were the two tables in the hands of Moses—as then he went down from the mountain, Moses knew not that the appearance of the skin of his face was glorified, when God spoke to him.
30And Aaron and all the elders of Israel saw Moses, and the appearance of the skin of his face was made glorious, and they feared to approach him.
31And Moses called them, and Aaron and all the rulers of the synagogue turned toward him, and Moses spoke to them.
32And afterward all the children of Israel came to him, and he commanded them all things, whatsoever the Lord had commanded him in the mount of Sinai.
33And when he ceased speaking to them, he put a veil on his face.
34And whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak to him, he took off the veil till he went out, and he went forth and spoke to all the children of Israel whatsoever the Lord commanded him.
35And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that it was glorified; and Moses put the veil over his face, till he went in to speak with him.
