9:15 So I turned and went down the mountain while it 1 was blazing with fire; the two tablets of the covenant were in my hands. 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! 9:17 I grabbed the two tablets, threw them down, 4 and shattered them before your very eyes.
1 tn Heb “the mountain.” The translation uses a pronoun for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.
4 tn The Hebrew text includes “from upon my two hands,” but as this seems somewhat obvious and redundant, it has been left untranslated for stylistic reasons.
