Early in the morning Moses went up Mount Sinai
as the LORD had commanded him,
taking along the two stone tablets.
Having come down in a cloud, the LORD stood with Moses there
and proclaimed his name, ""LORD.""
Thus the LORD passed before him and cried out,
""The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God,
slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.""
Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship.
Then he said, ""If I find favor with you, O Lord,
do come along in our company.
This is indeed a stiff-necked people; yet pardon our wickedness and sins,
and receive us as your own.""
