New King James Version
On the Mountain with God
9 Then Moses went up, also Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, 10 and they (A)saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of (B)sapphire stone, and it was like the (C)very[a] heavens in its clarity. 11 But on the nobles of the children of Israel He (D)did not [b]lay His hand. So (E)they saw God, and they (F)ate and drank.
13 So Moses arose with (I)his assistant Joshua, and Moses went up to the mountain of God. 14 And he said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. Indeed, Aaron and (J)Hur are with you. If any man has a difficulty, let him go to them.” 15 Then Moses went up into the mountain, and (K)a cloud covered the mountain.
16 Now (L)the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17 The sight of the glory of the Lord was like (M)a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel. 18 So Moses went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And (N)Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.Read full chapter
