Exodus 31 ends with amazing words: God giving Moses the two tablets of the covenant, written with the finger of God. Exodus 24:18 tells us that Moses remained on the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights. But the people believe this is a problem as we come into Exodus 32.
When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” (Exodus 32:1 ESV)
