The first occurs in the last recorded speech of the year-old Moses, at the start of the penultimate chapter of the Pentateuch—his blessing of Israel—where he tells us that he saw angels on Sinai thirty-eight years ago: ―The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto.

Because of the Jewish tradition that the giving of the Law occurred at Shavuot (Pentecost), the rabbinic authorities have been forced to interpret Exodus to mean that the Israelites arrived at Mt.

Sinai on the first day of the third month of Sivan -- since their traditional Shavuot can fall on the 5th, 6th or 7th of that month. The Bible, however, does NOT support this erroneous interpretation.

Nothing is said in the books of Genesis or Exodus about any law being attached to the covenant with the Fathers. No doubt, there were some conditions that Abraham had to satis­fy so that God’s covenant with him might be effective, but no law is mentioned in connection with that covenant.
