出埃及記 24


1耶和華又指示摩西說:「你和亞倫、拿答、亞比戶及以色列的七十位長老上我這裡來,遠遠地敬拜我。 只有你可以靠近我,其他人,包括全體百姓,都不得走近。」

摩西下山把耶和華的話和法令都告訴百姓,百姓齊聲回答:「我們願意遵行耶和華的一切吩咐。」 摩西把耶和華的這些話記錄下來。第二天清晨,摩西在山腳築了一座壇,立了十二根柱子代表以色列的十二支派。 他又吩咐以色列的青年去給耶和華獻燔祭,又獻上公牛作平安祭。 摩西把祭牲的血一半放在盆裡,一半灑在壇上。 他又把約書念給百姓聽,百姓聽了都說:「我們願意遵行耶和華的一切吩咐,我們願意順服。」 摩西便把盆中的血灑在百姓身上,說:「這是立約的血,是耶和華按所說的話與你們立約的憑據。」

之後,摩西、亞倫、拿答、亞比戶及七十位長老便上了山。 10 他們都看見了以色列的上帝,祂的腳下好像是一片藍寶石,像天一樣明淨。 11 上帝沒有伸手殺這些以色列的首領,允許他們看見祂,在祂面前吃喝。

12 耶和華對摩西說:「你上山到我這裡來,留在這裡,我要把寫著律法和誡命的石版賜給你,你可以用來教導百姓。」 13 於是,摩西帶著他的助手約書亞動身上了上帝的山。 14 離開之前,摩西吩咐長老說:「你們在這裡等候我們回來。亞倫和戶珥跟你們在一起,百姓當中有什麼訴訟的事情,可以交給他們處理。」

15 摩西上了山,密雲遮蓋著整座山。 16 耶和華的榮耀停留在西奈山上,密雲遮蓋了山六天。第七天,耶和華在雲中召喚摩西。 17 在以色列人眼中,耶和華的榮耀在山上好像烈火。 18 摩西上到山上,走進雲中,在那裡停留了四十晝夜。

Exodus 24

People Affirm Their Covenant with God

1Then God said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu (Aaron’s older sons), and seventy of Israel’s elders, and you shall worship at a [safe] distance. Moses alone shall approach the Lord, but the others shall not come near, nor shall the people come up with him.”

Then Moses came and told the people everything that the Lord had said and all the ordinances. And all the people answered with one voice, “Everything the Lord has said we will do.” Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. Then he got up early in the morning, and built an altar [for worship] at the foot of the mountain with twelve pillars (memorial stones) representing the twelve tribes of Israel. Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as peace offerings to the Lord. Moses took half of the blood and put it in large basins, and [the other] half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it aloud to the people; and they said, “Everything that the Lord has said we will do, and we will be obedient.” So Moses took the blood [which had been placed in the large basins] and sprinkled it on the people, and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.”

Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up [the mountainside], 10 and they saw [a manifestation of] the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, just as clear as the sky itself. 11 Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the nobles of the Israelites; and they saw [the manifestation of the presence of] God, and ate and drank.

12 Now the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and stay there, and I will give you the stone tablets with the law and the commandments which I have written for their instruction.” 13 So Moses [a]arose with Joshua his attendant, and he went up to the mountain of God. 14 And he said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. Remember that Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a legal matter, let him go to them.” 15 Then Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. 16 The glory and brilliance of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day God called to Moses from the midst of the cloud. 17 In the sight of the Israelites the appearance of the glory and brilliance of the Lord was like consuming fire on the top of the mountain. 18 Moses entered the midst of the cloud and went up the mountain; and he was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.
