15 And Mofes 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 the Writing of GOD graven upon the Tables.

17 And when Jofhua heard the Noife of the People as they fhouted, he faid unto Mofes, There is a Noise of War in the Camp.

18 And he faid, 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 them that fing do I hear.

19 And it came to pafs as foon as he came nigh unto the Camp, that he faw the CALF, and the Dancing: and Mofes's Anger waxed hot, and he caft the Tables out of his Hands, and brake them beneath the Mount.

20 And he took the CALF which they had made, and burnt it in the Fire, and ground it to Powder, and ftrewed it upon the Water, and made the Children of Ifrael DRINK of it.

27 And he faid unto them, Thus faith the LORD GOD of Ifrael, Put every Man his Sword by his Side, and go in and out from Gate to Gate throughout the Camp, and flay every Man his Brother, and every Man his Companion, and every Man his Neighbour.

28 And the Children of Levi did according to the Word of Mofes and there fell of the People that Day about THREE thousand Men.

29 For Mofes had faid, Confecrate yourselves To-day to the LORD, even every Man upon his Son, and upon his Brother; that he may bestow upon you a BLESSING this Day.

30 And it came to pafs on the Morrow, that Mofes faid unto the People, Ye have finned a great Sin and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I fhall make an Atonement for your Sin.

31 And Mofes returned unto the LORD, and faid, Oh, this People have finned a great Sin, and have made them Gods of Gold.

32 Yet now, if thou wilt, FORGIVE their Sin and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy Book which thou haft written.

33 n And the LORD faid unto MOSES, Whosoever hath SINNED against me, him will I blot out of my Book.
