27 Remember Your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; do not look at the stubbornness of this people and at their wickedness and at their sin;
28 Lest the inhabitants of the land from which You have brought us out say, Because Jehovah was not able to bring them into the land which He promised them and because He hated them, He has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness.
29 But they are Your people and Your inheritance, whom You have brought out with Your great strength and with Your outstretched arm.
1 At that time Jehovah said to me, Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first ones, and come up to Me on the mountain; and make yourself an ark of wood.
2 And I will write upon the tablets the words which were on the first tablets, which you shattered; and you shall place them in the ark.
3 So I made an ark of acacia wood and cut two tablets of stone like the first ones; and I went up to the mountain with the two tablets in my hand.
4 And He wrote upon the tablets as He had done the first writing, the ten words, which Jehovah spoke to you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly; and Jehovah gave them to me.
5 Then I turned and came down from the mountain, and I placed the tablets in the ark that I had made. And there they have been, as Jehovah commanded me.
6 (And the children of Israel set out from Beeroth Bene-jaakan for Moserah. There Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazer his son served as priest in his place.
7 From there they set out for Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of waterbrooks.
8 At that time Jehovah separated the tribe of Levi to bear the Ark of the Covenant of Jehovah, to stand before Jehovah to minister to Him and bless in His name until this day.
9 Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brothers; Jehovah is his inheritance, as Jehovah your God promised him.)
10 And I stayed on the mountain, as I had the first time, forty days and forty nights. And Jehovah listened to me in that instance as well; Jehovah would not destroy you.
11 And Jehovah said to me, Arise, take up the journey before the people so that they may enter and possess the land which I have sworn to their fathers to give them.
