Breaking The Law

The day that Jesus Christ (i.e. "that Rock was Christ" - see 1 Corinthians 10:1-4; also 'Before Abraham Was, I AM' and 'The God Of The Old Testament') gave The Law to Moses:

"24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them." (Exodus 24:12 KJV)

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai (which, as its name obviously says, is in the Sinai Peninsula, not in "Saudi Arabia" as some unrepentant, Truth-hating geographically-historically-Biblically ignorant people today continue to arrogantly bluster - see Why Did Paul Say That Sinai Was In Arabia? and The Night Crossing; Horeb, by which Mount Sinai is also known, is a recognized mountain range in the Sinai), he found the Israelites running wild in idolatry - after having not long before seen the LORD's power descend upon the mountain (i.e. "19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled" Exodus 19:16 KJV). In righteous wrath, Moses "broke the law" as an object lesson to and about the Satanic fools that he saw dancing naked around a calf idol.

"32:15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written." (Exodus 32:15 KJV)

32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount." (Exodus 32:19 KJV)

"The LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables"

Later, the LORD, who was the source of Moses' God-given sense of wrath toward evil, gave Moses a replacement set of the written Ten Commandments.

The Ten Commandments

"34:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest. 34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount. 34:3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.

34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone. 34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

34:8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped." (Exodus 34:1-8 KJV)

Upon his return, the second time, with the second set of tables of testimony, the Israelites saw that "the skin of Moses' face shone" (which was not a pagan halo - see The Shining and What Is A Halo?).

"34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. 34:30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. 34:31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them. 34:32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

34:33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face. 34:34 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him [see also The Trysting Tent], he took the veil off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded. 34:35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the veil upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him." (Exodus 34:29-35 KJV)
