Listen to this Kathan Kawraw being read
by the chaciyd with some Hebrew pronunciation


1 In the third month, when the children of IsraYAH were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they [into] the wilderness of Sinai.
2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come [to] the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there IsraYAH camped before the mount.
3 And Mosheh went up unto YAHUAH, and YAHUAH called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of IsraYAH;
4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and [how] I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine:
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of IsraYAH.
7 And Mosheh came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which YAHUAH commanded him.
8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that YAHUAH hath spoken we will do. And Mosheh returned the words of the people unto YAHUAH.
9 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Mosheh told the words of the people unto YAHUAH.
10 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,
11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day YAHUAH will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.
12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, [that ye] go [not] up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death:
13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether [it be] beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
14 And Mosheh went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at [your] wives.
16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that [was] in the camp trembled.
17 And Mosheh brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with YAHUAH; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because YAHUAH descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Mosheh spake, and YAHUAH answered him by a voice.
20 And YAHUAH came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and YAHUAH called Mosheh [up] to the top of the mount; and Mosheh went up.
21 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto YAHUAH to gaze, and many of them perish.
22 And let the priests also, which come near to YAHUAH, sanctify themselves, lest YAHUAH break forth upon them.
23 And Mosheh said unto YAHUAH, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.
24 And YAHUAH said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto YAHUAH, lest he break forth upon them.
25 So Mosheh went down unto the people, and spake unto them.
