Cut (carve) for you

Cut (carve) for you (yourself) two tables of stones like the first ones and I will write Strangely, Yahweh does not get angry with Moses for his rash act; the breaking of the Tablets is clearly not an issue worth dwelling on. Once they are broken, he says very simply how to obtain two new tablets whereon he will rewrite what he had already written the first time. Moses goes back to the mountain early in the morning bringing the new tablets and Yahweh gives a number of directions preceded by the renewal of the Covenant (cf. Ex 34:10-26). Essentially, it says: “Behold, I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders...I will drive out enemies before you.” And then he commands that Moses observes what he orders, that is: 110

«You shall not make a covenant with the people of this land»; «Break down their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves, and do not worship their gods»; «You shall not take of this land daughters for your sons»; «You shall not make for yourself any gods of cast metal»; «You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread in the month Abib»; (the first month of the Hebrew year) «His are all the male firstborns; all firstborns of your sons you shall redeem with gifts»; «You shall observe the Sabbath after working for six days»; «You shall observe the Feast of Weeks“ (harvest, year's end ingathering...)»; «Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Elohìm»; «You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with anything leavened, or let the sacrifice of the Feast of Passover remain until the morning»; «The best of the first fruits of your ground you shall bring to the house of the Lord»; «You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk»; After listing these detailed precepts, the Elohìm said to Moses (verse 27): 111
