JESUS IS The ROCK Of Ages Cleft For Me To Hide

Exodus 33:1-23 NIV







1Then The LORD Said To Moses, 



“Leave this place, you and the people you brought up 


out of Egypt, and go up to the land I Promised On Oath 


To Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saying, ‘I WILL Give it 


to your descendants.’ 



2I WILL Send an Angel before you and drive out the 


Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and 


Jebusites. 3Go up to the land flowing with milk and 


honey. 



But I WILL Not Go With you, because you are a stiff-


necked people and I Might Destroy you on the way.”



4When the people heard these distressing words, they began to mourn and no one put on any ornaments. 



5For The LORD Had Said To Moses, 




“Tell the Israelites, ‘You are a stiff-necked people. If I 


Were To Go With you even for a moment, I Might 


Destroy you. Now take off your ornaments and I WILL 


Decide What To Do With you.’ ” 




6So the Israelites stripped off their ornaments at Mount Horeb.








The Tent of Meeting





7Now Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the “tent of meeting.” Anyone inquiring of The LORD would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp. 8And whenever Moses went out to the tent, all the people rose and stood at the entrances to their tents, watching Moses until he entered the tent. 9As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, While The LORD Spoke With Moses. 


10Whenever the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance to the tent, they all stood and worshiped, each at the entrance to their tent. 



 11The LORD Would Speak To Moses Face 


to face, as one speaks to a friend. 




Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.







Moses and The Glory of The LORD






12Moses Said to The LORD


“YOU Have Been Telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but YOU Have Not Let me know whom YOU Will Send with me. YOU Have Said, ‘I Know you by name and you have found favor with ME.’ 



13If YOU Are Pleased With me, Teach me YOUR Ways so I may know YOU and continue to find favor with YOU. Remember that this nation is YOUR people.”










14The LORD Replied,


MY Presence WILL Go With you, and I WILL Give you rest.


15Then Moses said to HIM, 


“If YOUR Presence Does Not Go With us, do not send us up from here. 16How will anyone know that YOU Are Pleased With me and With YOUR people unless YOU Go With us? What else will distinguish me and YOUR people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”



17And The LORD Said To Moses, 



“I WILL DO the every thing you have asked, Because I 


AM Pleased With you and I Know you by name.”




18Then Moses said, 


“Now show me YOUR Glory.”







19And The LORD Said, 



“I WILL Cause All MGoodness To Pass in front of 


you, and I WILL Proclaim MName, The LORD, in your 


presence. I WILL Have Mercy on whom I WILL Have 


Mercy, and I WILL Have Compassion on whom I WILL 


Have Compassion. 




20But,” HE said, 



You cannot see MFace, for no one may see ME and 

live.








21Then The LORD Said,


“There is a place near ME where you may stand on a 
rock. 







22When MGlory Passes By, I WILL Put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you With MHand Until I Have Passed By. 


23Then I WILL Remove MHand and you will see MBack; But MFace Must Not Be Seen.”
