34 And the Lord said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.
3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.
4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, and took in his hand the two
tables of stone.
K.J.V. Bible Text
Exodus Chapter 34 begins with the Lord telling Moses to hew out two tables like the ones he had broken, and he would write upon the new tables.
He asked Moses to be ready in the morning to climb on Mount Sinai. No one else was to come with him and no herds were to feed in the foreground of the mountain.
So Moses hewed the tables of stone and rose up the following morning and went up Mount Sinai taking those tables with him according to what the Lord had commanded.
I have peeked ahead, and I know that in tomorrow’s reading we will learn what the Lord does upon the mount when Moses goes up.
I am finding this story of the interaction between Moses and the Lord very interesting and I hope you are too.
