reverence for his revelation

Deuteronomy 10:1-5

Deuteronomy 10:1 “Yahveh said to me at that time, ‘Cut two stone tablets like the first ones and come to me on the mountain and make a wooden ark.
Deuteronomy 10:2 I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets you broke, and you are to place them in the ark.’
Deuteronomy 10:3 So I made an ark of acacia wood, cut two stone tablets like the first ones, and climbed the mountain with the two tablets in my hand.
Deuteronomy 10:4 Then on the day of the collected assembly, Yahveh wrote on the tablets what had been written previously, the Ten Words that he had spoken to you on the mountain from the fire. Yahveh gave them to me,
Deuteronomy 10:5 and I went back down the mountain and placed the tablets in the ark I had made. And they have remained there, as Yahveh commanded.

reverence for his revelation

God in his grace chose not to destroy Israel, so Moses goes to the mountain once more for a fresh set of covenant words.

Two new elements stand out in the story. First, God prescribes the building of a container for the tablets: the ark of the covenant. Wherever the people go, this covenant was to go with them.

Secondly, while Moses is retrieving the covenant words, the collected assembly waits at the base of the mountain. The people are to go nowhere without the covenant words.

Christian, you are in covenant with your Lord Jesus Christ? Discover the stipulations and commands associated with that covenant, and go nowhere without those commands written on the tablet of your heart.

Lord of the new covenant, prepare us for our journey by giving us a reverence for your revelation.
