Deuteronomy 9:12

Context
9:12 And he said to me, “Get up, go down at once from here because your people whom you brought out of Egypt have sinned! They have quickly turned from the way I commanded them and have made for themselves a cast metal image.” 1 

Deuteronomy 9:16

Context
9:16 When I looked, you had indeed sinned against the Lord your God and had cast for yourselves a metal calf; 2  you had quickly turned aside from the way he 3  had commanded you!

1 tc Heb “a casting.” The MT reads מַסֵּכָה (massekhah, “a cast thing”) but some mss and Smr add עֵגֶל (’egel, “calf”), “a molten calf” or the like (Exod 32:8). Perhaps Moses here omits reference to the calf out of contempt for it.

2 tn On the phrase “metal calf,” see note on the term “metal image” in v. 12.

3 tn Heb “the Lord.” See note on “he” in 9:3.
