Bible Ten Commandments
Moses received the Bible Ten Commandments after leaving the elders and going alone to the summit of Sinai. There he stayed in communion with God for forty days and forty nights. In all that time, no man saw Moses; the cloud into which he had ascended remained continuously upon the mount. Moses received many more laws for the regulation of the Hebrew state. On the fortieth day God gave Moses the Ten Commandments on two tablets, "tables of stone, written with the finger of God." Then God bade Moses hasten back to the valley, for already the Israelites had broken their covenant with the Lord.
When Moses came back to his people he brought with thim the tables of stone graven with with the ten commandments, but as he drew near he beheld the Israelites making merry before the gold calf. In anger, he threw down the tables and broke them. Moses went to the edge of the camp and called aloud to the people, "Who is on the Lord's side? Let him come to me." To this cry all the sons of Levi responded. Moses told them to draw their swords and slay every idolator they came upon, all who persisted in sin, sparing neither neighbor, nor comrade, nor relative, nor son. Grimly they obeyed, and three thousand men died.
After inflicting ths punishment, Moses took the Tabernacle, which ahd been prepared as the Lord had directed, and set it up some distance from the camp, and when all had been made ready he entered into the veil beside the mercy-seat. God confirmed all that He had promised before and told Moses He would show him His mercy and glory. Moses was ordered to prepare other tables and go again to the top of Mount Sinail. Moses did as the Lord willed, and remained on the mount fasting for another period of forty days and nights, talking with God, who gave him the new tables, and promised that if the people would cease their iniquities He would do greater things for them than ever before. Moses then returned to the Israelites, bearing the new tables, and told them of God's promises, and while he spoke to them his face shone so brightly that they were afraid to come near him.
