Remember the day that you stood before Yahweh your God in Horeb, when Yahweh said to me, ‘Assemble the people before me and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.’ Bible see other translations

“I will make them hear my words.” The very first time that the Ten Commandments were given, God spoke them audibly to Israel from the top of Mount Sinai. It was later they were written on stone tablets.

[For more on God speaking the Ten Commandments directly to the Israelites, see commentary on Exodus 19:9.]
