3 And all the people brake off the golden ear-rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. 4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a grav-1 ing tool, after he had made it a e molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built n an altar before it; and Aaron made f proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD."

6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people g sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. 7T And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have h corrupted themselves:

a golden calf. and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, i it is a stiff-necked people:

10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may k wax hot against them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of thee a great nation.

11 And Moses besought 1 the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why m doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

12 Wherefore should then Egyp tians speak and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from o thy fierce wrath, and repent p of this evil against thy people.

13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thoug swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for


14 And the LORD r repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

15 T And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides on the one side and on the other were they written. 16 And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was s the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, Deut.32.26, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

20 And he took the calf which they had made, and t burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strewed it upon the water,

6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.

7 And Moses took the b tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.

8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.

9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORDC talked with Moses.

10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.
