Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice so that he might instruct you, and here on earth he made you to see his great fire and you heard his words out of the midst of the fire. Bible

“Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice.” This refers to God giving the Ten Commandments from Mount Sinai. [For more on God speaking the Ten Commandments directly to the Israelites, see commentary on Exodus 19:9].

“on earth he made you to see.” God spoke from heaven (the cloud above the mountain), the people on earth heard the words and saw the fire.
