1 And the Lord said unto Moses, a, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy b will I give it:
2 And I will send an a before thee; and I will drive out the b, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite:
3 Unto a land a with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.
4 ¶And when the people heard these evil tidings, they a: and no man did put on him his b.
5 For the Lord had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a a people: b will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.
6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.
7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the a of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord went out unto the b, which was without the camp.
8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his a door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.
9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the a descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.
10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.
11 And the Lord a unto Moses b, as a man c unto his d. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant e, the son of f, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.
12 ¶And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, a up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I b thee by c, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.
13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found a in thy sight, b me now thy c, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is d e.
14 And he said, My a shall go with thee, and I will give thee b.
15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou a with us? so shall we be b, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
17 And the Lord said unto Moses, a will b this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
18 And he said, I beseech thee, a me thy b.
19 And he said, I will make all my a pass before thee, and I will b the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew c on whom I will shew mercy.
20 a he said, Thou canst not see my face: for b shall no man c me, and live.
21 And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:
22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand a:
23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt a my b parts: but my face shall not be c.
