Exodus 19 ©
The people come to Sinai. God's message unto the people out of the mount. Moses delivereth it, and returneth the people's answer. The people are ordered to be prepared against the third day; the mountain is not to be touched. The people are sanctified. The fearful presence of God upon the mount.
IN the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day acame they into the wilderness of Sinai.
Now itherefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be ja *peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for kall the earth is mine:
¶And Moses uwent down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
¶And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there xwere thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the yvoice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.
And mount Sinai was altogether aon a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount bquaked greatly.
And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.
