CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And the voice of a trumpet - Exodus 19:19. The sound of the trumpet amidst the tempest was suited to increase the terror of the scene.

When the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God answered him with thunder.
All the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance.
Then they said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die."
"You came near and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire to the very heart of the heavens: darkness, cloud and thick gloom.
"Then the LORD spoke to you from the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of words, but you saw no form-- only a voice.
'Now then why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any longer, then we will die.
