Moses and the children of Israel go to Mount Sinai to camp
Moses went up the mountain to pray to God
God appears as Moses was praying, giving him a message
After 3 months, the children of Israel accompanied by Moses arrived at the foot of the holy mount Sinai, where they made their way to camp and to pray.
God appears in front of Moses and gives him a message
In 3 days I will talk to the people
As the children continued praying, Moses decided to go to the tip of the mountain to pray to the Lord.
Three days later the sky turned black and thunder rumbled and crashed through Israel
Moses is praying to the Lord at the top of the mountain while the children are praying at the bottom.
Moses heard God's calling just like a trumpet, and God appeared
I am the Lord your God, and these are my commandments, to be obeyed by all people
As they were praying God appeared in front of them, telling them that he will speak to the people in three days. Moses and the children were shocked and surprised.
After three days the sky turned pitch black, lightning strikes lit up the sky one by one, thunder crashed and rumbled and the mountain belched smoke and fire. The ground shook. Moses knew that this was God and went back up the mountain to speak with him.
Moses heard God calling, and he appeared. The people of Israel were frightened and confused. God told Moses a set of rules, 10 of them, God called them the 10 commandments. The Israelites must follow these commandments and God will be satisfied.
