G-d proposes a long-term relationship with Israel

The unifying joy of Yitro at the oneness of G-d.

Israel, fresh from its trials and triumphs after leaving Egypt, arrives, united in heart, at the foot of Mount Sinai.

There they are joined by a joyful Yitro, and there G-d takes them as His people forever, "My treasured possession among all the peoples... a kingdom of priests and a holy nation."
