Bible Study Notes

Exodus 34:1-9 The Lord instructs Moses to cut 2 new stones and He will write the commandments on them that Moses broke. Moses was to meet God on top of the mountain the next morning, him alone, and not another human in sight, not even the flocks or herds. The next morning, the Lord did all He promised. He then passed before Moses so he could see His glory. The Lord announces that He was merciful, gracious, slow to anger with much love and faithfulness, forgiving. BUT will not clear the guilty up to the fourth generation. Again, Moses asked the Lord to come with them and forgive the stiff-necked people.

Exodus 34:10-17 The Lord promised to do marvels not done anywhere else. The Lord will drive out their enemies. He warns them not to make a covenant with the inhabitants for they will tempt them away from Him and to sin. The Lord says they shall destroy their altars, pillars and idols so there will be no temptation to worship the false gods of the land. They shall make no gods of cast metal.

Exodus 34:18-26 The Lord reminds Moses to tell the people to keep the festivals, about His laws in regard to the first born males, man and animal. He reminds to keep the Sabbath, working six days and resting on the seventh. Three times a year all the males shall appear before the Lord. Again, the Lord promises to cast out the inhabitants and enlarge their borders. The Lord reminds how to offer the sacrifices and laws regarding them. He reminds to bring the best of their firstfruits of the ground to the house of the Lord.

Exodus 34:27-35 The Lord tells Moses to write all this down for this is the covenant. Moses was on the mountain with the Lord for another 40 days and nights. When he came down from the mountain, his face shown or illuminated because he was talking with God. The people were afraid to go near him. Moses called to them and told them everything the Lord said. He then put a veil over his face. He only removed the veil when he went in the tent to speak to the Lord.
