Exodus 32:19 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
32:19 He saw the calf, and the dancing, and his anger waxed hot - It is no breach of the law of meekness to shew our displeasure at wickedness. Those are angry and sin not, that are angry at sin only. Moses shewed himself angry, both by breaking the tables, and burning the calf, that he might by these expressions of a strong passion awaken the people to a sense of the greatness of their sin.

The greatest sign of God's displeasure against any people is his taking his law from them.

or worship idols as some of them did. As the Scriptures say, "The people celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged in pagan revelry."
The people got up early the next morning to sacrifice burnt offerings and peace offerings. After this, they celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged in pagan revelry.
But Moses replied, "No, it's not a shout of victory nor the wailing of defeat. I hear the sound of a celebration."
Then the LORD told Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones. I will write on them the same words that were on the tablets you smashed.
There below me I could see that you had sinned against the LORD your God. You had melted gold and made a calf idol for yourselves. How quickly you had turned away from the path the LORD had commanded you to follow!
So I took the stone tablets and threw them to the ground, smashing them before your eyes.
I become furious with the wicked, because they reject your instructions.
