(34:1) "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." Who wrote the ten commandments?
34:1And 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
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.
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.
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.
34:5And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and
proclaimed the name of the LORD.
And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God,
merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and
Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin,
and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the
children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth
And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.
And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O LORD, let my LORD,
I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our
iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.
And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do
marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and
all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it
is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
(34:11) "Behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite."
God drives out the pagan tribes and commands the
Israelites to destroy their altars and places of worship.
Observe thou that which I command thee this day:
behold, I drive out
before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the
Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of
the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:
But ye shall destroy their
altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:
34:14For thou shalt worship no
other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a

eat of his sacrifice;
And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their
daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make
thy sons go a whoring after
(34:16) "Their daughters go a whoring
after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods." God
always blames the women; it is they who "go a whoring" and then
"make" the men "go a whoring." Will God destroy those that intermarry?
The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat
unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in
the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.
All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle,
whether ox or sheep, that is male.
But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou
redeem him not, then shalt
thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem.
And none shall appear before me empty.
(34:20) "Then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem."
34:21Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in
earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.
(34:33) "Till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face."
And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two
tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that
Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin
of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the
congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in
commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
34:33And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.
But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail
off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of
Israel that which he was commanded.
And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses'
face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to
speak with him.
