NET Bible

He said:
The LORD came from Sinai
and revealed himself to Israel from Seir.
He appeared in splendor from Mount Paran,
and came forth with ten thousand holy ones.
With his right hand he gave a fiery law to them.
Surely he loves the people;
all your holy ones are in your power.
And they sit at your feet,
each receiving your words.
