5 And when Aaron faw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and iaid, To-morrow is feait to the LORD.

17 And when Joshua heard the noife of the people as they fhouted, he faid unto Mofes, There is a noife of war in the camp.

18 And he faid, It is not the voice of them that thout formaitery, 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 país, as foon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he faw the calf, and the dancing: and Mofes' 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 strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Ifrael drink of it.

21 And Mofes faid unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou haft brought fo great a fin upon them?

11 And Motes befought the LORD his God, and faid, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot againfi thy people, which thou haft brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

12 Wherefore thould the Egyptians speak and fay, For mifchief did he Fring them out, to flay them in the mountains, and to confume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil againft thy people.

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

15 And Mofes turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the teftimony were in his hand; the tables were written on both their fides: on the one fide and on the other were they written.

16 And the tables were the work of God, and the waiting as the writing of Cod, graven upon the tables.

24 And I faid unto them, Whofoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I caft it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

25 And when Mofes faw that the people avere naked; (for Aaron hal made them naked unto their thame among their enemies :)

30 And it came to pafs on the morrow, that Mofes faid unto the people, Ye have finned a great fin: and now I will go up unto the LORD: perad venture I fhall make an atonement for your fin.
