Moses Makes New Tablets

Exodus 34

1 The Lord said to Moses, w "Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, x and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, y which you broke. 2 Be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me z on the top of the mountain. 3 No a one shall come up with you, and let no one be seen throughout all the mountain. Let no flocks or herds graze opposite that mountain." 4 So Moses cut two tablets of stone like the first. And he rose early in the morning and went up on Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, and took in his hand two tablets of stone. 5 The Lord b descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and c proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, d "The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and e gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast f love and faithfulness, 7 g keeping steadfast love for thousands, 1 h forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but i who will by no means clear the guilty, j visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation." 8 And Moses quickly k bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped. 9 And he said, "If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, please l let the Lord go in the midst of us, for m it is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for n your inheritance."
