A Land Flowing with Milk and Honey - Exodus 33

And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go  up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up  out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto  Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will  I give it: Exodus 33:1  KJV

Exodus 33:2 And I will send an angel before thee; and I  will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite,  and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: 

Exodus 33:3 Unto  a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in  the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I  consume thee in the way.  

Exodus 33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they  mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments. 

Exodus 33:5  For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children  of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into  the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore  now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what  to do unto thee. 

Exodus 33:6 And the children of Israel stripped  themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb. 

Exodus 33:7  And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the  camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle  of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the  congregation, which was without the camp. 

Exodus 33:8 And it  came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle,  that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his  tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into  the tabernacle. 

Exodus 33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses  entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and  stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORD talked  with Moses. 

Exodus 33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy  pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose  up and worshipped, every man in his tent door. 

Exodus 33:11  And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man  speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp:  but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man,  departed not out of the tabernacle.   

Exodus 33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest  unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me  know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I  know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my  sight. 

Exodus 33:13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found  grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know  thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that  this nation is thy people. 

Exodus 33:14 And he said, My  presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.  

Exodus 33:15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with  me, carry us not up hence. 

Exodus 33:16 For wherein shall it be  known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy  sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be  separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are  upon the face of the earth. 

Exodus 33:17 And the LORD said  unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken:  for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by  name. 

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

Exodus 33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness  pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD  before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be  gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.  

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

Exodus 33:21 And the LORD said,  Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a  rock: 

Exodus 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: 

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