29  And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of the testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses knew not that the skin of his face sent forth beams while He talked with him.

29  And when Moses went down from the mountain, there were the two tables in the hands of Moses, —as then he went down from the mountain, Moses knew not that the appearance of the skin of his face was glorified, when God spoke to him.

29  And when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, he held the two tablets of the testimony, and he did not know that his face was radiant from the sharing of words with the Lord.

30  And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face sent forth beams; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

30  And Aaron and all the elders of Israel saw Moses, and the appearance of the skin of his face was made glorious, and they feared to approach him.

30  Then Aaron and the sons of Israel, seeing that the face of Moses was radiant, were afraid to approach close by.

31  And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him; and Moses spoke to them.

31  And being called by him, they turned back, both Aaron and the leaders of the assembly. And after he had spoken to them,

31  So Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him; and Moses talked with them.

32  And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh, and he gave them in commandment all that YHWH had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

32  And afterwards all the children of Israel came to him, and he commanded them all things, whatsoever the Lord had commanded him in the mount of Sina.

32  all the sons of Israel also now came to him. And he instructed them in all the things that he had heard from the Lord on Mount Sinai.

33  And when Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face.

33  And having completed these words, he placed a veil over his face.

34  But when Moses went in before YHWH that He might speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and he came out; and spoke unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

34  And whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak to him, he took off the veil till he went out, and he went forth and spoke to all the children of Israel whatsoever the Lord commanded him.

34  But when he entered to the Lord and was speaking with him, he took it off, until he exited. And then he spoke to the sons of Israel all that had been commanded to him.

35  And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face sent forth beams; and Moses put the veil back upon his face, until he went in to speak with Him.

35  And they saw that the face of Moses, when he came out, was radiant, but he covered his face again, whenever he spoke to them.
