Exodus 19

On Top of Old Smokey

16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, as well as a thick cloud on the mountain, and a blast of a trumpet so loud that all the people who were in the camp trembled. 17 Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God. They took their stand at the foot of the mountain. 18 Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, because the LORD had descended upon it in fire; the smoke went up like the smoke of a kiln, while the whole mountain shook violently. 19 As the blast of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses would speak and God would answer him in thunder. 20 When the LORD descended upon Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain, the LORD summoned Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up. 21 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go down and warn the people not to break through to the LORD to look; otherwise many of them will perish. 22 Even the priests who approach the LORD must consecrate themselves or the LORD will break out against them." 23 Moses said to the LORD, "The people are not permitted to come up to Mount Sinai; for you yourself warned us, saying, 'Set limits around the mountain and keep it holy.'" 24 The LORD said to him, "Go down, and come up bringing Aaron with you; but do not let either the priests or the people break through to come up to the LORD; otherwise he will break out against them."

Musings

Very little press seems to be given to this passage, but it is where the Israelites meet God pretty much up close and personal. It's not a private theophany like the appearance of God to Moses was at the burning bush, it is a full-out appearance to the entire group. It is believed the subject of discussion in verse 19 is none other than the 10 commandments, later put on tablets (twice) and kept in a place of honor (believed to be the contents of the Ark of the Covenant).

The Ten Commandments deserve their own commentary because there is just so much in them, so in the second and last shameless plug in this book, refer to the commentary The Cartoon Ten Commandments, for an in-depth look at them! History shows the Israelites were good caretakers of these rules, because these concepts have become the basis for most laws and legal systems throughout the world today.
