Exodus 34:29 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
34:29 The skin of his face shone - This time of his being in the mount he heard only the same he had heard before.

Then Moses turned and went down the mountain. He held in his hands the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant. They were inscribed on both sides, front and back.
Then I turned and came down the mountain and placed the tablets in the Ark of the Covenant, which I had made, just as the LORD commanded me. And the tablets are still there in the Ark."
