Exodus Chapter 19

Exo 19:8: The elders of the people agreed to abide by all that Elohim had spoken. This is the Covenant itself. It is the agreement by the people to do all the Instructions of Elohim. The covenant is not the Torah itself.
The people did the right thing by agreeing to the Covenant. This fact is demonstrated when Elohim commended their response (Deut. 5:27-28). The next verse tells us what their problem actually was. It wasn’t that they didn’t mean what they said. The problem is that their hearts did not fear Elohim (Deut. 5:29)
