One day the Lord said to Moses, “Cut two flat stones like the first ones I made, and I will write on them the same commandments that were on the two you broke.
Be ready tomorrow morning to come up Mount Sinai and meet me at the top.
No one is to come with you or to be on the mountain at all. Don’t even let the sheep and cattle graze at the foot of the mountain.”
So Moses cut two flat stones like the first ones, and early the next morning he carried them to the top of Mount Sinai, just as the Lord had commanded.
The Lord God came down in a cloud and stood beside Moses there on the mountain. God spoke his holy name, “the Lord.”
Then he passed in front of Moses and called out, “I am the Lord God. I am merciful and very patient with my people. I show great love, and I can be trusted.
I keep my promises to my people forever, but I also punish anyone who sins. When people sin, I punish them and their children, and also their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”
