Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel ; and
worship you afar off.
24:2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD but they shall
not come near ; neither shall the people go up with him.
24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the
LORD, and all the judgments and all the people answered with one
voice, and said, All the words which the LORD has said will we
24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up
early in the morning, and built an altar under the hill, and

offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen
unto the LORD.

basins ; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the
audience of the people and they said, All that the LORD has said
will we do, and be obedient.
24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled [it] on the
people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the
LORD has made with you concerning all these words.

seventy of the elders of Israel

his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it
were the body of heaven in [his] clearness.

not his hand also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

mount, and be there and I will give ya'll tables of stone, and a
law, and commandments which I have written ; that you may teach
24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua and Moses
went up into the mount of God.

with you if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto

24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days and the seventh day

devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the
children of Israel.

up into the mount and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty
