Exodus 33:12-23

Moses said to the Lord, “See, you have said to me, ‘Bring up this people’; but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.’ Now if I have found favor in your sight, show me your ways, so that I may know you and find favor in your sight. Consider too that this nation is your people.” He said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” And he said to him, “If your presence will not go, do not carry us up from here. For how shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people, unless you go with us? In this way, we shall be distinct, I and your people, from every people on the face of the earth.” The Lord said to Moses, “I will do the very thing that you have asked; for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” Moses said, “Show me your glory, I pray.” And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you the name, ‘The Lord’; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face; for no one shall see me and live.” And the Lord continued, “See, there is a place by me where you shall stand on the rock; and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by; then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen.”


Dijo Moisés a Yahveh: “Mira, tú me dices: Haz subir a este pueblo; pero no me has indicado a quién enviarás conmigo; a pesar de que me has dicho: ‘Te conozco por tu nombre’, y también: ‘Has hallado gracia a mis ojos.’ Ahora, pues, si realmente he hallado gracia a tus ojos, hazme saber tu camino, para que yo te conozca y halle gracia a tus ojos, y mira que esta gente es tu pueblo.” Respondió él: “Yo mismo iré contigo y te daré descanso.” Contestóle: “Si no vienes tú mismo, no nos hagas partir de aquí. Pues ¿en qué podrá conocerse que he hallado gracia a tus ojos, yo y tu pueblo, sino en eso, en que tú marches con nosotros? Así nos distinguiremos, yo y tu pueblo, de todos los pueblos que hay sobre la tierra.” Respondió Yahveh a Moisés: “Haré también esto que me acabas de pedir, pues has hallado gracia a mis ojos, y yo te conozco por tu nombre.” Entonces dijo Moisés: “Déjame ver, por favor, tu gloria.” El le contestó: “Yo haré pasar ante tu vista toda mi bondad y pronunciaré delante de ti el nombre de Yahveh; pues hago gracia a quien hago gracia y tengo misericordia con quien tengo misericordia.” Y añadió: “Pero mi rostro no podrás verlo; porque no puede verme el hombre y seguir viviendo.” Luego dijo Yahveh: “Mira, hay un lugar junto a mí; tú te colocarás sobre la peña. Y al pasar mi gloria, te pondré en una hendidura de la peña y te cubriré con mi mano hasta que yo haya pasado. Luego apartaré mi mano, para que veas mis espaldas; pero mi rostro no se puede ver.”


모세가 여호와께 고하되 `보시옵소서! 주께서 나더러 이 백성을 인도하여 올라가라 하시면서 나와 함께 보낼 자를 내게 지시하지 아니하시나이다 주께서 전에 말씀하시기를 나는 이름으로도 너를 알고 너도 내 앞에 은총을 입었다 하셨사온즉 내가 참으로 주의 목전에 은총을 입게 하시며 이 족속을 주의 백성으로 여기소서!' 여호와께서 가라사대 내가 친히 가리라! 내가 너로 편케 하리라! 모세가 여호와께 고하되 `주께서 친히 가지 아니하시려거든 우리를 이곳에서 올려 보내지 마옵소서 나와 주의 백성이 주의 목전에 은총 입은 줄을 무엇으로 알리이까? 주께서 우리와 함께 행하심으로 나와 주의 백성을 천하 만민 중에 구별하심이 아니니이까?' 여호와께서 모세에게 이르시되 너의 말하는 이 일도 내가 하리니 너는 내 목전에 은총을 입었고 내가 이름으로도 너를 앎이니라 모세가 가로되 `원컨대 주의 영광을 내게 보이소서!' 여호와께서 가라사대 내가 나의 모든 선한 형상을 네 앞으로 지나게 하고 여호와의 이름을 네 앞에 반포하리라 나는 은혜 줄 자에게 은혜를 주고 긍휼히 여길자에게 긍휼을 베푸느니라 또 가라사대 네가 내 얼굴을 보지 못하리니 나를 보고 살 자가 없음이니라 여호와께서 가라사대 보라 내 곁에 한 곳이 있으니 너는 그 반석 위에 섰으라 내 영광이 지날 때에 내가 너를 반석 틈에 두고 내가 지나도록 내 손으로 너를 덮었다가 23 손을 거두리니 네가 내 등을 볼 것이요 얼굴은 보지 못하리라


God of salvation,

     in you we find freedom and rest for our weary souls.

Our hearts are heavy, Lord.

Today was supposed to be a day of celebration in the life of our school.

     So many are finishing their coursework and moving on to ministry in your name.

We mourn with them the rite of passage that would have been today.

We celebrate with them their success and the call you have placed on their hearts.

We pray that you sustain them this day and always,

     through your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ we pray,



Oh Freedom!
