Moses Goes Down from Mount Sinai
When Moses went down from Mount Sinai carrying the Ten Commandments, his face was shining because he had been speaking with the Lord
; but he did not know it.
Aaron and all the people looked at Moses and saw that his face was shining, and they were afraid to go near him.
But Moses called them, and Aaron and all the leaders of the community went to him, and Moses spoke with them.
After that, all the people of Israel gathered around him, and Moses gave them all the laws that the Lord
had given him on Mount Sinai.
When Moses had finished speaking with them, he covered his face with a veil.
Whenever Moses went into the Tent of the Lord
's presence to speak to the Lord
, he would take the veil off. When he came out, he would tell the people of Israel everything that he had been commanded to say,
and they would see that his face was shining. Then he would put the veil back on until the next time he went to speak with the Lord
