On the third month of journey, they came to the mountain Sinai.

The Lord said, "Let the people wash their clothes. On the third day I will come in a thick cloud & I will speak to you, that they will hear too."

On the third day in the morning, there was lightning and thunder and smoke, because the Lord descended on the mountain in fire.

The Lord spoke and everybody heard him!

He gave Ten Commandments:

"I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the Land of Egypt, out the house of bondage..."

The first four Commandments tell us how to love God, the other six how to love each other.

After that the Lord called Moses up on the mountain alone. Moses was with God for forty days.

People became impatient. They did not know why Moses did not come back...
