23 For they said unto me, Make us Gods which shall go up before us: for as for this Moses, the Man that brought us up out of the Land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any Gold, let them break it off: so they gave it me: then I cast it into the Fire, and there came out this Calf.

25 And when Moses saw that the People were Naked (for Aaron had made them naked unto their Shame, amongst their Enemies)

26 Then Moses stood in the Gate of the Camp, and said, Who is on the Lord's Side? let him come unto me. And all the Sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto, him.

27 And he said unto them, Thus faith the Lord God of Israel, Put every Man his Sword by his Side, and go in and out from Gate to Gate throughout the Camp, and flay every Man his Brother, and every Man his Companion, and every Man his Neighbour.

28 And the Children of Levi did according to the Word of Moses: and there fell of the People that Day about Three thousand Men.

29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves To-day to the Lord, even every Man upon his Son, and upon hi$ Brother; that he may bestow upon you a Blessing this Day.

30 And it came to pass on the Morrow, that Moses said unto the People, Ye have finned a great Sin: and now I will go up unto the Lorr; peradventure I shall make art Atonement for your Sin.

31 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this People have finned a great Sin, and have made them Gods of Gold.

32 Yet now, if thou wilt, Forgive their Sin : and if. not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy Book which thou hast written.

CHAP. XXXIII.

i The Lord refuseth to go with the People. 9 The Lord talketh with Moses. 1 z Moses destreth to see the Glory of God.

Ver. 1 A ND the Lord said unto Moses, Depart, and gd Xjl up hence, thou and the People which thou haft brought up out of the Land of Egypt, unto the Land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy Seed I will give it:

2 And I will send an Angel before thee j and I will drive out the Canaanite, Use.

3 Unto a Land flowing with Milk and Honey: for I Will not Go Up in the midst of thee, for thou art a StiffNecked People : lest I consume thee in the Way.

4 And when the People heard these evil Tidings, they mourned: and no Man did put on him his Ornaments.

5 For the Lord had said unto Moses, Say unto the Children of Israel, Ye are a Stiff-necked People: I will come up into the midst of thee in a Moment, and consume thee: theiefore now put off thy Ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.

6 And the Children of Israel stript themselves of their Ornaments, by the Mount Horeb.

7 And Moses took the Tabernacle, and pitched it without the Camp, afer off from the Camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the Congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord, went out unto the TaBernacle of the Congregation, which was without the Camp.

8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the Tabernacle, that all the People rose up, and stood every Man at his Tent-door, and looked after Moses, until he Was gone into the Tabernacle.

9 And it came to pass, as Moses entred into the TaberNacle, the Cloudy Pillar descended, and stood at the

Door

Door of the Tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.

10 And all the People saw the Cloudy Pillar stand at the Tabernacle Door: and all the People rose up and worshipped, every Man in his Tent-door.

11 And the Lord spake unto Moses Face to Face, as a Man speaketh unto his Friend. And he turned again into the Camp j but his Servant Joshua, the Son of Nun, a young Man, .departed not out of the 7'abernacle.

iz And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this People: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt Send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by Name, and thou hast also sound Grace in my Sight.

13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have sound Grace in thy Sight, shew me now thy Way that I may Know thee, that I may find Grace in thy Sight: and consider that this Nation is thy People.

14 And he said, My Presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee Rest.

15 And he said unto him, If thy Presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

16 For wherein shall it be known here, that I and thy People have found Grace in thy Sight? Is it not in that thou goest with us? So shall we be separated, I and thy People, from all the People that are upon the Face of the Earth.

17 And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this Thing also that thou hast spoken : for thou hast found Grace in my Sight, and I know thee by Name.

18 o And he said, I beseech . PftU Wli;., 0 God, thon art my thee, shew me thy GLORY. God, early will I seek thee : my Soul

CHAP. XXXIV.

1 The Tables are renewed. 5 The Name of the Lord proclaimed. 10 God maketh a Covenant with them. 29 Moses's Face Jhineth.

Ver. 1 AND the Lord said unto Moses, Hew thee two Xa. Tables of Stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these Tables the Words that were in the first Tables which thou breakest.

2 And be ready in the Morning, and come up in the Morning unto Mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me, in the Top of the Mount.

3 And no Man shall come up with thee, neither let any Man be seen throughout all the Mount: neither let the Flocks nor Herds feed before that Mount.

4 And he hewed two Tables of Stone, like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the Morning, and went up unto Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, and took in his Hand the two Tables of Stone.

5 And the Lord Descended in the Cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the Name of the Lord.

6 And the Lord Passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, the Lord God, Merciful and Gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in Goodness and Truth.

8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his Head toward the Earth, and worshipped.
