'And God speaketh all these words, saying,
These words hath Jehovah spoken unto all your assembly, in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness -- a great voice; and He hath not added, and He writeth them on two tables of stone, and giveth them unto me.
Hath a people heard the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, thou -- and doth live?
'From the heavens He hath caused thee to hear His voice, to instruct thee, and on earth He hath shewed thee His great fire, and His words thou hast heard out of the midst of the fire.
Face to face hath Jehovah spoken with you, in the mount, out of the midst of the fire;
'This is he who was in the assembly in the wilderness, with the messenger who is speaking to him in the mount Sinai, and with our fathers who did receive the living oracles to give to us;
who received the law by arrangement of messengers, and did not keep it.'
