And God said all these words:
These words the Lord said to all of you together on the mountain, out of the heart of the fire, out of the cloud and the dark, with a great voice: and he said no more; he put them in writing on the two stones of the law and gave them to me.
Has any people ever gone on living after hearing the voice of God out of the heart of the fire as you did?
Out of heaven itself his voice came to you, teaching you; and on earth he let you see his great fire; and his words came to your ears out of the heart of the fire.
The word of the Lord came to you face to face on the mountain, out of the heart of the fire,
This is the man who was in the church in the waste land with the angel who was talking to him in Sinai, and with our fathers; and to him were given the living words of God, so that he might give them to you.
You, to whom the law was given as it was ordered by angels, and who have not kept it.
