Moses Makes New Tablets

Exodus 34

1 And the LORD said to Moses, a "Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and b I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke. 2 "So be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself to Me there c on the top of the mountain. 3 "And no man shall d come up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; let neither flocks nor herds feed before that mountain." 4 So he cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early in the morning and went up Mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him; and he took in his hand the two tablets of stone. 5 Now the LORD descended in the e cloud and stood with him there, and f proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD g God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in h goodness and i truth, 7 j "keeping mercy for thousands, k forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, l by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation." 8 So Moses made haste and m bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 9 Then he said, "If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, n let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a o stiff-necked 1 people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as p Your inheritance."
