Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest 'up' out of the

land of Egypt, have corrupted them(8 selves: 'they have turned aside

quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed funto it, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel,

which brought thee up out of the 9 land of Egypt. And the LORD said

unto Moses, I have seen this people,

and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: 10 °now therefore let me alone, that my

wrath may wax hot against them, and

that I may consume them: and I will 11 make of thee a great nation. 'And

Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the

land of Egypt with great power and 12 with a mighty hand? Wherefore

should the Egyptians speak, 'saying', For levili did he bring them 'forth', to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath,

and repent of this evil against thy 13 people. °Remember Abraham, Isaac,

and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou 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 14 it for ever. °And the LORD repented

of the evil which he isaid he wouldi

do unto his people. 15 And Moses turned, and went down

from the mount, 'with the two tables of the testimony in his hand; tables Ithat were written on both their

sides; on the one side and on the i6 other were they written. 'And the

tables were the work of God, and

the writing was the writing of God, 17 graven upon the tables. °And when

Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses,

There is a noise of war in the camp. 18 °And he said, It is not the voice of

them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for

being overcome: but the noise of 19 them that sing do I hear. 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 20 them beneath the mount. °And he

took the calf which they had made, and burnt it 'withi fire, and ground it to powder, and istrewed' it upon the

water, and made the children of Israel (21) drink of it. °And Moses said unto

Aaron, What did this people unto

thee, that thou hast brought a great 22 sin upon them? And Aaron said,

Let not the anger of my lord wax

hot: thou knowest the people, that 23 they are set on levill. °For they said

unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us : for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of

the land of Egypt, we know not 24 what is become of him. And I said

unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off ; so they gave it

me : land' I cast it into the fire, and 25 there came out this calf. And when

Moses saw that the people were
Ibroken loosel; for Aaron had 'leti

them 'loose for a iderision among! 26 their enemies : othen Moses stood in

the gate of the camp,and said, 'Whoso! is on the Lord's side, let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi

gathered themselves together unto 27 him. And he said unto them, Thus

saith the LORD, 'the God of Israel, Put 'ye! every man his sword 'upon! his 'thigh', and go 'to' and 'frol from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and

every man his companion, and every 28 man his neighbour. And the Isons!
