First Reading for the Trinity Sunday Year A

Exodus 34:4B-6, 8-9

Summary: Moses, following God's instructions, ascends Mount Sinai, where God proclaims His compassionate nature; Moses worships and pleads for God's presence despite the people's stubbornness.

Moses on Mount Sinai

Early in the morning Moses went up Mount Sinai as the LORD had commanded him, taking along the two stone tablets.

Having come down in a cloud, the LORD stood with Moses there and proclaimed his name, “”LORD.””

Thus the LORD passed before him and cried out, “”The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.””

Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship. Then he said, “”If I find favor with you, O Lord, do come along in our company. This is indeed a stiff-necked people; yet pardon our wickedness and sins, and receive us as your own.””
