With regard to Ex. 34:29-35 two problems are discussed: 1. The meaning of in 34:29, 30, 35. 2. The question of the relation of 34:29-33 to 34:34,35.

Ad 1.: The traditional interpretation: = ‘to shine’, is considered to be the least debatable among the various interpretations. In the context of Exodus it presents the most adequate sense. By the radiance on his face Moses is legitimated as YHWH’s in-timate and representative.

Ad 2.: To 34:34, 35 the following tendency is attributed: YHWH’s precepts, given to Moses inside the sanctuary, have the same divine authority as the ordinances revealed on Mount Sinai (cf. 34:29-33). By the transfiguration of Moses’ face the divine origin of his words is guaranteed.
