(29) So Moses came down from Mount Sinai. And as Moses came down from the mountain bearing the two tablets of the Pact, Moses was not aware that the skin of his face was radiant, since he had spoken with God. (30) Aaron and all the Israelites saw that the skin of Moses’ face was radiant; and they were afraid to come near him.
(31) But Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the chieftains in the assembly returned to him, and Moses spoke to them. (32) Afterward all the Israelites came near, and he instructed them concerning all that the Eternal had spoken to him on Mount Sinai. (33) And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a mask over his face. (34) Whenever Moses went in before the Eternal, to speak with God, he would remove the mask until he came out; and when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, (35) the Israelites would see how radiant the skin of Moses’ face was. Moses would then return the mask back over his face until he went in to speak with God.
