English: Praying to a Golden Idol. Caption: "What are these people doing ? They are praying to a golden idol. They have made it in the shape of a calf, and are bowing down to it, and asking it to help them. The people are Israelites. God helped them when they lived in Egypt. When Pharaoh was cruel to them and made them work very hard, God made Pharaoh let the Israelites go. God made the Red Sea dry for the Israelites to pass through. He gave them water to drink and manna to eat in the wilderness. Yet now they have forgotten God and are bowing down and praying to an idol which they made themselves. They are doing like the heathen people who are their enemies, and who live in the country they are passing through."
