Bible: Deut 4:10-15

4:10 You 1  stood before the Lord your God at Horeb and he 2  said to me, “Assemble the people before me so that I can tell them my commands. 3  Then they will learn to revere me all the days they live in the land, and they will instruct their children.” 4:11 You approached and stood at the foot of the mountain, a mountain ablaze to the sky above it 4  and yet dark with a thick cloud. 5  4:12 Then the Lord spoke to you from the middle of the fire; you heard speech but you could not see anything – only a voice was heard. 6  4:13 And he revealed to you the covenant 7  he has commanded you to keep, the ten commandments, 8  writing them on two stone tablets. 4:14 Moreover, at that same time the Lord commanded me to teach you statutes and ordinances for you to keep in the land which you are about to enter and possess. 9 

The Nature of Israel’s God

4:15 Be very careful, 10  then, because you saw no form at the time the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the middle of the fire.
