journeyed from the Wilderness of Sin, after their Journeys, according to the Commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no WATER for the People to drink.

2 Wherefore the People did chide with Mofes, and faid, Give us Water that we may drink. And Mofes faid unto them, Why chide you with me? Wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?

3 And the People thirfted there for Water; and the People† MURMURED againft Mofes, and faid, Wherefore is this that thou haft brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our Children, and our Cattle with Thirt?

4 And Mofes cried unto the LORD, faying, What fhall I do unto this People? they be almoft ready to ftone me.

5 And the LORD faid unto Mofes, Go on before the People, and take with thee of the Elders of Ifrael: and thy ROD wherewith thou fmoteft the River, take in thine Hand, and go.

13 And Joshua difcomfited Amalek and his People with the Edge of the Sword.

14 And the LORD faid unto Mofes, Write this for a Memorial in a Book, and rehearse it in the Ears of Joshua : for I will utterly put out the Remembrance of Amalek from under Heaven.

15 And Mofes built an Altar, and called the Name of it JEHOVAH-nissi.

Ver. 1TN the third Month, when the Children of Ifrael were gone forth out of the Land of Egypt, the fame Day came they into the Wilderness of Sinai.

2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the Defart of Sinai, and had pitched in the Wilderness, and there Ifrael camped before the Mount.

3 And Mofes went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the Mountain, faying, Thus fhalt thou fay unto the Houfe of Jacob, and tell the Children of Ifrael;

4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I BARE you on EAGLE'S Wings, and brought you unto myfelf.

and he that formed thee, O ISRAEL, Fear not: for I have REDEEMED thee, I have CALLED thee by thy Name, thou art MINE.

2 When thou paffeft through the WATERS, I WILL be WITH THEE; and through the Rivers they fhall not overflow thee: when thou walkeft burnt; neither shall the Flame kindle

3 For I am the LORD thy GOD, the HOLY ONE of Ifrael, thy SAVIOUR. Isa. xli. 8 But thou Ifrael art my Servant, JACOB whom I have chosen, the Seed of ABRAHAM my Friend.

1 John iii. 1 Behold what manner of Love the FATHER hath BESTOWED upon us, that we should be CALLED the Sons of GoD: therefore the World knoweth us not, because it KNEW him not.

2 Now are we the Sons of GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know, that when he fhall APPEAR, we shall be LIKE him, for wę fhall see him as he is.

6 And ye fhall be unto me a Kingdom of PRIESTS, and an HOLY NATION. These are the Words which thou fhalt speak unto the Children of Ifrael.

7 And MOSES came and called for the Elders of the People, and laid before their Faces all thefe Words which the LORD commanded him.

8 And all the People anfwered together, and faid, All that the LORD hath spoken, we will do. And Mofes returned the Words of the People unto the LORD.

10 And the LORD faid unto MOSES, Go unto the People, and SANCTIFY them To-day and To-morrow, and let them wash their Cloaths,

11 And be ready against the third Day: for the third Day the LORD will come down in the Sight of all the People upon Mount Sinai.

12 And thou fhalt fet Bounds unto the People round about, faying, Take heed to yourfelves, that ye go not up into the Mount, or touch the Border of it: whofoever TOUCHETH the Mount, fhall be surely put to DEATH.

13 There shall not an Hand touch it, but he fhall furely be ftoned or fhot through; whether it be Beast or Man, it fhall not LIVE: when the TRUMPET foundeth long, they shall come up to the Mount,

14 And MOSES went down from the Mount unto the People, and SANCTIFIED the People, and they washed their Cloaths.

15 And he faid unto the People, Be ready against the third Day come not at your Wives.

16 And it came to pafs on the third Day in the Morning, that there were THUNDERS and LIGHTNINGS, and a thick CLOUD upon the MOUNT, and the VOICE of the Trumpet EXCEEDING LOUD; fo that all the People that was in the Camp TREMBLED.

17 And Mofes brought forth the People out of the Camp to meet with GOD, and they ftood at the nether Part of the Mount.

18 And Mount SINAI was altogether on a SMOKE, because the LORD DESCENDED upon it in FIRE: and the SMOKE thereof afcended as the Smoke of a Furnace, and the whole MoUNT QUAKED greatly.

19 And when the VOICE of the TRUMPET founded long, and waxed louder and louder, MOSES fpake, and GOD answered him by a Voice.

19 And the SOUND of a TRUMPET, and the VOICE of WORDS, which VOICE they that heard, intreated that the WORD fhould not be spoken to them any more:
