English: Moses Throws the Tablet of Stone. Caption: "Moses has a tablet of stone in his hand. It has some writing on it. He is throwing it down on the ground. Why does he do this ? I will tell you. Moses has been up on yonder mountain. God told him to go up, and while he was there God spoke to him and gave him two tablets of stone. They had the ten commandments written on them. God had written them there with his own hand. They were to teach the people what God wanted them to do. Now Moses is bringing them down from the mountain. But when he comes he finds all the people doing wickedly. They have made an idol out of gold. It is in the shape of a calf. And they have taken the calf for their god, and are praying to it. This is very wicked, for God has told them they must not pray to idols. And now when Moses is bringing them the tablets which God has sent to them, he sees all the people praying to the golden calf. And Moses is very angry. He says they do not deserve to have the tablets which God has sent, and he throws them down on the ground."
