New Tablets of Stone

Deuteronomy 10

1 "At that time the LORD said to me, 1 'Hew for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and come up to Me on the mountain and make yourself an a ark of wood. 2 'And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke; and b you shall put them in the ark.' 3 "So I made an ark of acacia wood, hewed two tablets of stone like the first, and went up the mountain, having the two tablets in my hand. 4 "And He wrote on the tablets according to the first writing, the Ten 2 Commandments, c which the LORD had spoken to you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly; and the LORD gave them to me. 5 "Then I turned and d came down from the mountain, and e put the tablets in the ark which I had made; f and there they are, just as the LORD commanded me."

6 (Now the children of Israel journeyed from the wells of Bene Jaakan to Moserah, where Aaron g died, and where he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered as priest in his 3 stead. 7 h From there they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of 4 rivers of water. 8 At that time i the LORD 5 separated the tribe of Levi j to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, k to stand before the LORD to minister to Him and l to bless in His name, to this day. 9 m Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD is his inheritance, just as the LORD your God promised him.)

10 "As at the first time, n I stayed in the mountain forty days and forty nights; o the LORD also heard me at that time, and the LORD chose not to destroy you. 11 p "Then the LORD said to me, 'Arise, begin your journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.'
