The Shining Face of Moses

Exo 33:18  And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

Exo 33:20  And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

Exo 33:21  And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:
Exo 33:22  And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

Exo 33:23  And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Exo 34:5  And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
Exo 34:6  And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
Exo 34:7  Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
Exo 34:8  And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped

Exo 34:28  And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

Exo 34:29  And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

Exo 34:34  But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.
Exo 34:35  And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that

the skin of Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
