Moses has been on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights writing on the two tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments (34:28). The Lord has displayed his name to Moses, that he is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty. This glorious name of the Lord is displayed in God keeping his covenant with Israel and going with his people to the promised land. The tabernacle project is restored for God is going to live with his people and bring them into the promised land. But now the scriptures want us to know that something unusual had happened to Moses because he had been on the mountain with the Lord. Open your copies of God’s word to Exodus 34:29-35 and we will read about this scene.
