Exodus 34:29-35

Moses' face shines

29 Moses came down from Sinai mountain. He carried the two stones of the covenant in his hands. As he came down the mountain, he did not know that his face was shining. His face was shining because he had spoken with the Lord. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, they could see that his face was shining. They were afraid to come near him. 31 But Moses called out to them. So Aaron and the leaders of the people came back to him. Then Moses talked to them. 32 After this, all the Israelites came near to Moses. He told them all the commands that the Lord had given to him on Sinai mountain.

33 When Moses had finished speaking to the people, he covered his face with a thin cloth. 34 But when he went into the special tent to speak with the Lord, he would remove the cloth. When he came out again, he would tell God's commands to the Israelites. 35 They could see that his face was shining. So Moses would put the thin cloth over his face again. The cloth would stay on his face until he went into the special tent again to speak with the Lord.
