Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:1 - Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:2 - And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:3 - So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:4 - And he received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf. Then they said, “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:5 - So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:6 - Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:7 - And the LORD said to Moses, “Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:8 - “They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:9 - And the LORD said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people!

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:10 - “Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:11 - Then Moses pleaded with the LORD his God, and said: “LORD, why does Your wrath burn hot against Your people whom You have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:12 - “Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, ‘He brought them out to harm them, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:13 - “Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.’ ”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:14 - So the LORD relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:15 - And Moses turned and went down from the mountain, and the two tablets of the Testimony were in his hand. The tablets were written on both sides; on the one side and on the other they were written.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:16 - Now the tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God engraved on the tablets.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:17 - And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.”

It is not the noise of the shout of victory,
Nor the noise of the cry of defeat,
But the sound of singing I hear.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 32:19 - So it was, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. So Moses’ anger became hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain.
