R. Meïr Leibush ben Yehiel Michel Weiser (1809-1879),

Israel Was Instructed to Ascend Sinai, but Were Afraid of Revelation

“When the ram’s horn sounds a long blast, they shall go up on the mountain” (Exodus 19:13). The original intention was for all Israelites to be like priests, and experience YHWH’s revelation on the mountain top. But when YHWH descends and the horn sounds, the people recoil and remain below.
