Bible: Exodus 19:9-13

19:9 The Lord said to Moses, “I am going to come 1  to you in a dense cloud, 2  so that the people may hear when I speak with you and so that they will always believe in you.” 3  And Moses told the words of the people to the Lord.

19:10 The Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and sanctify them 4  today and tomorrow, and make them wash 5  their clothes 19:11 and be ready for the third day, for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 19:12 You must set boundaries 6  for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed 7  to yourselves not to go up on the mountain nor touch its edge. Whoever touches the mountain will surely be put to death! 19:13 No hand will touch him 8  – but he will surely be stoned or shot through, whether a beast or a human being; 9  he must not live.’ When the ram’s horn sounds a long blast they may 10  go up on the mountain.”
