This great fire will consume us, and we will die if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer.(E) 26 For what mortal has ever heard the voice of the living God speaking out of fire, as we have, and survived?(F) 27 Go near and listen to all that the Lord our God says.(G) Then tell us whatever the Lord our God tells you.
