Exodus 19

19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel had gone
 forth from the land of Egypt, the same day they came [into] the
 wilderness of Sinai.
19:2 For they had departed from Rephidim, and had come [to] the
 desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there
 Israel encamped before the mount.
19:3 And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from
 the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of
 Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;
19:4 Ye have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and [how] I bore
 you on eagles' wings, and brought you to myself.
19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
 covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure to me above all
 people: for all the earth [is] mine:
19:6 And ye shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy
 nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak to the
 children of Israel.
19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and
 laid before their faces all these words which the LORD
 commanded him.
19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that
 the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words
 of the people to the LORD.
19:9 And the LORD said to Moses, Lo, I come to thee in a thick
 cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and
 believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people
 to the LORD.
19:10 And the LORD said to Moses, Go to the people, and sanctify
 them to-day and to-morrow, and let them wash their clothes,
19:11 And be ready against the third day: for on the third day
 the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon
 mount Sinai.
19:12 And thou shalt set bounds to the people round about,
 saying, Take heed to yourselves, [that ye] go [not] up upon the
 mount, or touch the border of it: whoever toucheth the mount
 shall be surely put to death:
19:13 There shall not a hand touch it, but he shall surely be
 stoned or shot through: whether [it be] beast or man, it shall
 not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to
 the mount.
19:14 And Moses went down from the mount to the people, and
 sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
19:15 And he said to the people, Be ready against the third day:
 come not at [your] wives.
19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that
 there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the
 mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all
 the people that [were] in the camp trembled.
19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet
 with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether in a smoke, because the
 LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke of it ascended as
 the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount trembled greatly.
19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and grew
 louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a
19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the
 mount: and the LORD called Moses to the top of the mount; and
 Moses went up.
19:21 And the LORD said to Moses, Go down, charge the people,
 lest they break through to the LORD to gaze, and many of them
19:22 And let the priests also who come near to the LORD,
 sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.
19:23 And Moses said to the LORD, The people cannot come up to
 mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about
 the mount, and sanctify it.
19:24 And the LORD said to him, Away, go down, and thou shalt
 come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: But let not the priests and
 the people break through, to come up to the LORD, lest he break
 forth upon them.
19:25 So Moses went down to the people, and spoke to them.
