he was there with Jehovah aforty
days and forty nights; he did not eat bread, and he did not drink water. And He wrote upon the btablets
the words of the covenant, the Ten 1Commandments
when Moses came down from Mount Sinai — and the two atablets
of the testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain — Moses did not know that the skin of his bface
shone by reason of 1His
speaking with him.
when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, at that time the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers in the assembly returned to him, and Moses spoke to them.
afterward all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them in commandment all that Jehovah had spoken with him on Mount Sinai.
when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a 1aveil
over his face.
whenever Moses went in before Jehovah to speak with Him, he would remove the 1veil
until he came out; and when he came out and spoke to the children of Israel what he had been commanded,
children of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone. Then Moses would put the veil back on his face until he went in to speak with Him.
