Exodus 24:1-8View Full Chapter
The Covenant Confirmed 1Then the LORD said to Moses, “Come up to the LORD, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel. You are to worship at a distance,
2but Moses alone is to approach the LORD ; the others must not come near. And the people may not come up with him.” 3When Moses went and told the people all the LORD ’s words and laws, they responded with one voice, “Everything the LORD has said we will do.”
4Moses then wrote down everything the LORD had said. He got up early the next morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and set up twelve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel. 5Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as fellowship offerings to the LORD . 6Moses took half of the blood and put it in bowls, and the other half he splashed against the altar.
7Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the LORD has said; we will obey.”
8Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.”
