NASB — Exodus 24 — KJV

People Affirm Their Covenant with God

1 Then He said to Moses, “aCome up to the LORD, you and Aaron, bNadab and Abihu and cseventy of the elders of Israel, and you shall worship at a distance. 2 Moses alone, however, shall come near to the LORD, but they shall not come near, nor shall the people come up with him.”

3 ¶ Then Moses came and recounted to the people all the words of the LORD and all the Iordinances; and all the people answered with one voice and said, “aAll the words which the LORD has spoken we will do!” 4 aMoses wrote down all the words of the LORD. Then he arose early in the morning, and built an baltar Iat the foot of the mountain with twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 He sent young men of the sons of Israel, aand they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as peace offerings to the LORD. 6 aMoses took half of the blood and put [it] in basins, and the [other] half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 Then he took athe book of the covenant and read [it] in the hearing of the people; and they said, “bAll that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient!” 8 So aMoses took the blood and sprinkled [it] on the people, and said, “Behold bthe blood of the covenant, which the LORD has Imade with you IIin accordance with all these words.”
