Covenant (Digital Painting)

Covenant is about the account in Exodus when G-d established His covenant with Isra’el at Mount Sinai. It portrays G-d’s law descending from the cloud. The Hebrew letters extend outside the image which signifies that G-d’s word has the capability to reach everyone even beyond His people Isra’el.

Moshe was told that G-d was making a covenant in front of all his people. That He would do wonders such as have not been created anywhere on earth or in any nation.

Moshe was instructed to ascend Mount Sinai. G-d then descended in the cloud, stood there with Moshe and pronounced his name (יהוה). He proclaimed who He was “merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace and truth; showing grace to the thousandth generation, forgiving offenses, crimes and sins…” He then proceeded to lay out the terms of the covenant.

Moshe subsequently wrote down all the words G-d had spoken. He then took the Book of the Covenant and read it in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient. And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.”
