Context Readings

The Shining Face Of Moses

27 The Lord also said to Moses, “Write down these words, for I have made a covenant with you and with Israel based on these words.” 28 Moses was there with the Lord 40 days and 40 nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. He wrote the Ten Commandments, the words of the covenant, on the tablets. 29 As Moses descended from Mount Sinai—with the two tablets of the testimony in his hands as he descended the mountain—he did not realize that the skin of his face shone as a result of his speaking with the Lord.
