1WHEN the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they congregated before Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods to go before us. As for this Moses, who brought us up from Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

2Aaron answered, “Take the gold rings from the ears of your wives and daughters, and bring them to me.”

3So all the people stripped themselves of their gold ear-rings and brought them to Aaron.

4He received them from their hands, cast the metal in a mould, and made it into the image of a bull-calf; then they said, “Israel, these are your gods that brought you up from Egypt.”

5Seeing this, Aaron built an altar in front of it and announced, “Tomorrow there is to be a feast to the LORD.”

6Next day the people rose early, offered whole-offerings, and brought shared-offerings. After this they sat down to eat and drink and then gave themselves up to revelry.

7The LORD said to Moses, “Go down at once, for your people, the people you brought up from Egypt, have committed a monstrous act.

8They have lost no time in turning aside from the way which I commanded them to follow, and cast for themselves a metal image of a bull-calf; they have prostrated themselves before it, sacrificed to it, and said, ‘Israel, these are your gods that brought you up from Egypt.’”

9The LORD said to Moses, “I have considered this people, and I see their stubbornness.

10Now, let me alone to pour out my anger on them, so that I may put an end to them and make a great nation spring from you.”

11Moses set himself to placate the LORD his God: “LORD,” he said, “why pour out your anger on your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a strong hand?

12Why let the Egyptians say, ‘He meant evil when he took them out, to kill them in the mountains and wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from your anger, and think better of the evil you intend against your people.

13Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I shall make your descendants countless as the stars in the heavens, and all this land, of which I have spoken, I shall give to them, and they will possess it for ever.’”

14So the LORD thought better of the evil with which he had threatened his people.

15Moses went back down the mountain holding the two tablets of the Testimony, inscribed on both sides, on the front and on the back.

16The tablets were the handiwork of God, and the writing was God's writing, engraved on the tablets.

17Joshua, hearing the uproar the people were making, said to Moses, “Listen! There is fighting in the camp.”

18Moses replied, “This is not the sound of warriors, nor the sound of a defeated people; it is the sound of singing that I hear.”

19As he approached the camp, Moses saw the bull-calf and the dancing, and in a burst of anger he flung down the tablets and shattered them at the foot of the mountain.

20He took the calf they had made and burnt it; he ground it to powder, sprinkled it on water, and made the Israelites drink it.

21He demanded of Aaron, “What did this people do to you that you should have brought such great guilt upon them?”

22Aaron replied, “Please do not be angry, my lord. You know how wicked the people are.

23They said to me, ‘Make us gods to go ahead of us, because, as for this Moses, who brought us up from Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’

24So I said to them, ‘Those of you who have any gold, take it off.’ They gave it to me, I threw it in the fire, and out came this bull-calf.”

25Moses saw that the people were out of control and that Aaron had laid them open to the secret malice of their enemies.

26He took his place at the gate of the camp and said, “Who is on the LORD's side? Come here to me”; and the Levites all rallied to him.

27He said to them, “The LORD the God of Israel has said: Arm yourselves, each of you, with his sword. Go through the camp from gate to gate and back again. Each of you kill brother, friend, neighbour.”

28The Levites obeyed, and about three thousand of the people died that day.

29Moses said, “You have been installed as priests to the LORD today, because you have turned each against his own son and his own brother and so have brought a blessing this day upon yourselves.”

30The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. Now I shall go up to the LORD; perhaps I may be able to secure pardon for your sin.”

31When he went back to the LORD he said, “Oh, what a great sin this people has committed: they have made themselves gods of gold.

32“Now if you will forgive them, forgive; but if not, blot out my name, I pray, from your book which you have written.”

33The LORD answered Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, him I shall blot out from my book.

34Now go, lead the people to the place of which I have told you. My angel will go ahead of you, but a day will come when I shall punish them for their sin.”

35Then the LORD punished the people who through Aaron made the bull-calf.
