The repentance of the people 33:1-6
33:1 And YEHOVAH (יהוה) said to Mosheh:
Depart, [and] go up hence, you and the people which you hast brought up out of the eretz Mitzrayim, to the land which I sware to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov, saying, to thy zera will I give it:
33:2 And I will send an messenger (מלאך) before thee; and I will drive out the Kenaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Yevusite:
33:3 to a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for you [art] a stiffnecked people: lest I consume you in the way.
33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments.
33:5 For YEHOVAH (יהוה) had said to Mosheh:
Say to the benai Yisrael, You [are] a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of you in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from you, that I may know what to do to you.
33:6 And the Benai Yisrael stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horev.
Mosheh' Tent of meeting 7 -11
33:7 And Mosheh took the ohel (tent), and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting). And it came to pass, [that] every one which sought YEHOVAH (יהוה) went out to the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting), which [was] without the camp.
33:8 And it came to pass, when Mosheh went out to the ohel, [that] all the people rose up, and stood every man [at] his tent door, and looked after Mosheh, until he was gone into the ohel.
33:9 And it came to pass, as Mosheh entered into the ohel, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood [at] the door of the ohel, and [YEHOVAH (יהוה)] talked with Mosheh.
33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand [at] the ohel door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man [in] his tent door.
33:11 And YEHOVAH (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh face to face, as a man speaketh to his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but His servant Yehoshua Ben Nun, a young man, departed not out of the ohel.

33:12(iii) And Mosheh said to YEHOVAH (יהוה):
See, you sayest to me, Bring up this people: and you hast not let me know whom you wilt send with me. Yet you hast said, I know you by name, and you hast also found grace in my sight.
33:13 Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation [is] Your people.
33:14 And he said, My presence shall go [with thee], and I will give you rest.
33:15 And he said to him, If thy presence go not [with me], carry us not up hence.
33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? [is it] not in that you goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that [are] upon the face of the earth.

And YEHOVAH (יהוה) said to Mosheh:
I will do this thing also that you hast spoken: for you hast found grace in my sight, and I know you by name.
The Shekinah glory of HaShem
33:18 And he said, I beseech you, shew me Your Kavod.
33:19 And He said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the Name of YEHOVAH (יהוה) before you; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew chesed on whom I will shew chesed.
33:20 And he said, You cannot see My face: for there shall no man see Me, and live.
And YEHOVAH (יהוה) said:
Hinei, [there is] a place by Me, and you shall stand upon a rock:
33:22 And it shall come to pass, while My Kavod passes by, that I will put you in a clift of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by:
33:23 And I will take away Mine hand, and you shall see My back parts: but My face shall not be seen.
