||Mosi quoque dixit ascende ad Dominum tu et Aaron Nadab et Abiu et septuaginta senes ex Israhel et adorabitis procul
And he said to Moses: Come up to the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel, and you shall adore afar off.
||solusque Moses ascendet ad Dominum et illi non adpropinquabunt nec populus ascendet cum eo
And Moses alone shall come up to the Lord, but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people come up with him.
||venit ergo Moses et narravit plebi omnia verba Domini atque iudicia responditque cunctus populus una voce omnia verba Domini quae locutus est faciemus
So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice: We will do all the words of the Lord, which he hath spoken.
||scripsit autem Moses universos sermones Domini et mane consurgens aedificavit altare ad radices montis et duodecim titulos per duodecim tribus Israhel
And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord: and rising in the morning, he built an altar at the foot of the mount, and twelve titles according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
||misitque iuvenes de filiis Israhel et obtulerunt holocausta immolaveruntque victimas pacificas Domino vitulos
And he sent young men of the children of Israel, and they offered holocausts, and sacrificed pacific victims of calves to the Lord.
||tulit itaque Moses dimidiam partem sanguinis et misit in crateras partem autem residuam fudit super altare
Then Moses took half of the blood, and put it into bowls; and the rest he poured upon the altar.
||adsumensque volumen foederis legit audiente populo qui dixerunt omnia quae locutus est Dominus faciemus et erimus oboedientes
And taking the book of the covenant, he read it in the hearing of the people: and they said: All things that the Lord hath spoken, we will do, we will be obedient.
||ille vero sumptum sanguinem respersit in populum et ait hic est sanguis foederis quod pepigit Dominus vobiscum super cunctis sermonibus his
And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.
||ascenderuntque Moses et Aaron Nadab et Abiu et septuaginta de senioribus Israhel
Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel went up:
||et viderunt Deum Israhel sub pedibus eius quasi opus lapidis sapphirini et quasi caelum cum serenum est
And they saw the God of Israel: and under his feet as it were a work of sapphire stone, and as the heaven, when clear.
||nec super eos qui procul recesserant de filiis Israhel misit manum suam videruntque Deum et comederunt ac biberunt
Neither did he lay his hand upon those of the children of Israel, that retired afar off, and they saw God, and they did eat and drink.
||dixit autem Dominus ad Mosen ascende ad me in montem et esto ibi daboque tibi tabulas lapideas et legem ac mandata quae scripsi ut doceas eos
And the Lord said to Moses: Come up to me into the mount, and be there; and I will give thee tables of stone, and the law, and the commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.
||surrexerunt Moses et Iosue minister eius ascendensque Moses in montem Dei
Moses rose up, and his minister Josue: and Moses going up into the mount of God,
||senioribus ait expectate hic donec revertamur ad vos habetis Aaron et Hur vobiscum si quid natum fuerit quaestionis referetis ad eos
Said to the ancients: Wait ye here till we return to you. You have Aaron and Hur with you: if any question shall arise, you shall refer it to them.
||cumque ascendisset Moses operuit nubes montem
And when Moses was gone up, a cloud covered the mount.
||et habitavit gloria Domini super Sinai tegens illum nube sex diebus septimo autem die vocavit eum de medio caliginis
And the glory of the Lord dwelt upon Sinai, covering it with a cloud six days: and the seventh day he called him out of the midst of the cloud.
||erat autem species gloriae Domini quasi ignis ardens super verticem montis in conspectu filiorum Israhel
And the sight of the glory of the Lord, was like a burning fire upon the top of the mount, in the eyes of the children of Israel.
||ingressusque Moses medium nebulae ascendit in montem et fuit ibi quadraginta diebus et quadraginta noctibus
And Moses entering into the midst of the cloud, went up into the mountain: And he was there forty days and forty nights.
