Ki Tissa

Exodus 32:3-8

And all the people took off the gold rings that were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. This he took from them and fashioned it and made it into a molten calf.

And they exclaimed, THIS IS YOUR GOD.

The people offered up burnt offerings and brought sacrifices of well-being.

They sat down to eat and drink and then rose to dance.

God spoke to Moses, “They have been quick to turn aside from the path I commanded.

They have made themselves a molten calf and bowed low to it, and sacrificed to it, saying:

“THIS IS YOUR GOD.”
