Exodus 24:10-11, Did they see God?

Question: In verse 10&11 why does it say they saw GOD when the bible says no one can see GOD or they die.? Answer: There are two other passages that help us understand this. God tells Moses that he cannot see God's face and live in Exodus 33:20. Moses reminds the people later in Deuteronomy 4:12 that they did not see God's form, only the cloud and fire and they heard His voice. They saw God, in that they saw Him descend in the cloud, but they did not see His face, nor His form, nor His full glory. -PJ
