The tabernacle moved
33:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, [and] go up for this reason, you and
the people which you have brought up out of the land of Egypt,
unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob,
saying, Unto your seed will I give it
33:2 And I will send an angel before ya'll; and I will drive
out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the
Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite
33:3 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey for I will not
go up in the midst of ya'll; for you [are] a stiff-necked people
unless I consume ya'll in the way.
33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they
mourned and no man did put on him his ornaments.
33:5 For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children
of Israel, You [are] a stiff-necked people I will come up into
the midst of ya'll in a moment, and consume ya'll therefore now put
off your ornaments from ya'll, that I may know what to do unto
33:6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their
ornaments by the mount Horeb.
33:7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without
the camp, afar 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.
33:8 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.
God talks to Moses in the tabernacle
33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the
tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood [at] the door
of the tabernacle, and [the LORD] talked with Moses.
33:10 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.
33:11 And the LORD spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man
speaks unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp but his
servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of
Moses prays for God's presence
33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, you say unto me,
Bring up this people and you have not let me know whom you will
send with me. Yet you have said, I know ya'll by name, and you
have also found grace in my sight.
33:13 Now therefore, I pray ya'll, if I have found grace in
your sight, show me now your way, that I may know ya'll, that I may
find grace in your sight and consider that this nation [is] your
33:14 And he said, My presence shall go [with ya'll], and I
will give ya'll rest.
33:15 And he said unto him, If your presence go not [with me],
carry us not up for this reason.
33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and your
people have found grace in your sight ? [is it] not in that you
go with us? so shall we be separated, I and your people, from all
the people that [are] upon the face of the earth.
Moses asks to see God's glory
33:17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also
that you have spoken for you have found grace in my sight, and
I know ya'll by name.
33:18 And he said, I beseech ya'll, show me your glory.
33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before
ya'll, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before ya'll; and
will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy
on whom I will show mercy.
33:20 And he said, You can not see my face for there shall no
man see me, and live.
33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, [there is] a place by me,
and you will stand upon a rock
33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passes by,
that I will put ya'll in a clift of the rock, and will cover ya'll
with my hand while I pass by
33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and you will see my
back parts but my face shall not be seen.
