24:2 And Moses alone shall come near : but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of , and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which hath said will we do.

24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of , and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which hath made with you concerning all these words.

24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:

24:10 And they saw the Elohim of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
