Exodus 32


1  And when the people5971 saw7200 that3588 Moses4872 delayed954 to come down3381 out of4480 the mount,2022 the people5971 gathered themselves together6950 unto5921 Aaron,175 and said559 unto413 him, Up,6965 make6213 us gods,430 which834 shall go1980 before6440 us; for3588 as for this2088 Moses,4872 the man376 that834 brought us up5927 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 we know3045 not3808 what4100 is become1961 of him.

2  And Aaron175 said559 unto413 them, Break off6561 the golden2091 earrings,5141 which834 are in the ears241 of your wives,802 of your sons,1121 and of your daughters,1323 and bring935 them unto413 me.

3  And all3605 the people5971 broke off6561 853 the golden2091 earrings5141 which834 were in their ears,241 and brought935 them unto413 Aaron.175

4  And he received3947 them at their hand,4480 3027 and fashioned6696 it with a graving tool,2747 after he had made6213 it a molten4541 calf:5695 and they said,559 These428 be thy gods,430 O Israel,3478 which834 brought thee up5927 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

5  And when Aaron175 saw7200 it, he built1129 an altar4196 before6440 it; and Aaron175 made proclamation,7121 and said,559 Tomorrow4279 is a feast2282 to the LORD.3068

6  And they rose up early7925 on the morrow,4480 4283 and offered5927 burnt offerings,5930 and brought5066 peace offerings;8002 and the people5971 sat down3427 to eat398 and to drink,8354 and rose up6965 to play.6711

7  And the LORD3068 said1696 unto413 Moses,4872 Go,1980 get thee down;3381 for3588 thy people,5971 which834 thou broughtest5927 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 have corrupted7843 themselves:

8  They have turned aside5493 quickly4118 out of4480 the way1870 which834 I commanded6680 them: they have made6213 them a molten4541 calf,5695 and have worshiped7812 it, and have sacrificed2076 thereunto, and said,559 These428 be thy gods,430 O Israel,3478 which834 have brought thee up5927 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

9  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 I have seen7200 853 this2088 people,5971 and, behold,2009 it1931 is a stiffnecked7186 6203 people:5971

10  Now6258 therefore let me alone,5117 that my wrath639 may wax hot2734 against them, and that I may consume3615 them: and I will make6213 of thee a great1419 nation.1471

11  And Moses4872 besought2470 853 the LORD3068 his God,430 and said,559 LORD,3068 why4100 doth thy wrath639 wax hot2734 against thy people,5971 which834 thou hast brought forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 with great1419 power,3581 and with a mighty2389 hand?3027

12  Wherefore4100 should the Egyptians4714 speak,559 and say,559 For mischief7451 did he bring them out,3318 to slay2026 them in the mountains,2022 and to consume3615 them from4480 5921 the face6440 of the earth?127 Turn7725 from thy fierce wrath,4480 2740 639 and repent5162 of5921 this evil7451 against thy people.5971

13  Remember2142 Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and Israel,3478 thy servants,5650 to whom834 thou sworest7650 by thine own self, and saidst1696 unto413 them, I will multiply7235 853 your seed2233 as the stars3556 of heaven,8064 and all3605 this2063 land776 that834 I have spoken559 of will I give5414 unto your seed,2233 and they shall inherit5157 it forever.5769

14  And the LORD3068 repented5162 of5921 the evil7451 which834 he thought1696 to do6213 unto his people.5971

15  And Moses4872 turned,6437 and went down3381 from4480 the mount,2022 and the two8147 tables3871 of the testimony5715 were in his hand:3027 the tables3871 were written3789 on both4480 8147 their sides;5676 on the one side4480 2088 and on the other4480 2088 were they1992 written.3789

16  And the tables3871 were the work4639 of God,430 and the writing4385 was the writing4385 of God,430 graven2801 upon5921 the tables.3871

17  And when Joshua3091 heard8085 853 the noise6963 of the people5971 as they shouted,7452 he said559 unto413 Moses,4872 There is a noise6963 of war4421 in the camp.4264

18  And he said,559 It is not369 the voice6963 of them that shout6030 for mastery,1369 neither369 is it the voice6963 of them that cry6030 for being overcome:2476 but the noise6963 of them that sing6031 do I595 hear.8085

19  And it came to pass,1961 as soon as834 he came nigh7126 unto413 the camp,4264 that he saw7200 853 the calf,5695 and the dancing:4246 and Moses'4872 anger639 waxed hot,2734 and he cast7993 853 the tables3871 out of his hands,4480 3027 and broke7665 them beneath8478 the mount.2022

20  And he took3947 853 the calf5695 which834 they had made,6213 and burnt8313 it in the fire,784 and ground2912 it to5704 powder,834 1854 and strewed2219 it upon5921 6440 the water,4325 and made 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 drink8248 of it.

21  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 Aaron,175 What4100 did6213 this2088 people5971 unto thee, that3588 thou hast brought935 so great1419 a sin2401 upon5921 them?

22  And Aaron175 said,559 Let not408 the anger639 of my lord113 wax hot:2734 thou859 knowest3045 853 the people,5971 that3588 they1931 are set on mischief.7451

23  For they said559 unto me, Make6213 us gods,430 which834 shall go1980 before6440 us: for3588 as for this2088 Moses,4872 the man376 that834 brought us up5927 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 we know3045 not3808 what4100 is become1961 of him.

24  And I said559 unto them, Whosoever4310 hath any gold,2091 let them break it off.6561 So they gave5414 it me: then I cast7993 it into the fire,784 and there came out3318 this2088 calf.5695

25  And when Moses4872 saw7200 that3588 853 the people5971 were naked;6544 (for3588 Aaron175 had made them naked6544 unto their shame8103 among their enemies:)6965

26  Then Moses4872 stood5975 in the gate8179 of the camp,4264 and said,559 Who4310 is on the LORD's3068 side? let him come unto413 me. And all3605 the sons1121 of Levi3878 gathered themselves together622 unto413 him.

27  And he said559 unto them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Put7760 every man376 his sword2719 by5921 his side,3409 and go in5674 and out7725 from gate4480 8179 to gate8179 throughout the camp,4264 and slay2026 every man376 853 his brother,251 and every man376 853 his companion,7453 and every man376 853 his neighbor.7138

28  And the children1121 of Levi3878 did6213 according to the word1697 of Moses:4872 and there fell5307 of4480 the people5971 that1931 day3117 about three7969 thousand505 men.376

29  For Moses4872 had said,559 Consecrate4390 3027 yourselves today3117 to the LORD,3068 even3588 every man376 upon his son,1121 and upon his brother;251 that he may bestow5414 upon5921 you a blessing1293 this day.3117

30  And it came to pass1961 on the morrow,4480 4283 that Moses4872 said559 unto413 the people,5971 Ye859 have sinned2398 a great1419 sin:2401 and now6258 I will go up5927 unto413 the LORD;3068 peradventure194 I shall make an atonement3722 for1157 your sin.2403

31  And Moses4872 returned7725 unto413 the LORD,3068 and said,559 Oh,577 this2088 people5971 have sinned2398 a great1419 sin,2401 and have made6213 them gods430 of gold.2091

32  Yet now,6258 if518 thou wilt forgive5375 their sin;2403 and if518 not,369 blot4229 me, I pray thee,4994 out of thy book4480 5612 which834 thou hast written.3789

33  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Whosoever4310 834 hath sinned2398 against me, him will I blot out4229 of my book.4480 5612

34  Therefore now6258 go,1980 lead5148 853 the people5971 unto413 the place of which834 I have spoken1696 unto thee: behold,2009 mine Angel4397 shall go1980 before6440 thee: nevertheless in the day3117 when I visit6485 I will visit6485 their sin2403 upon5921 them.

35  And the LORD3068 plagued5062 853 the people,5971 because5921 834 they made6213 853 the calf,5695 which834 Aaron175 made.6213


1 καὶ ἰδὼν ὁ λαὸς ὅτι κεχρόνικεν Μωυσῆς καταβῆναι ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους συνέστη ὁ λαὸς ἐπὶ Ααρων καὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ ἀνάστηθι καὶ ποίησον ἡμῖν θεούς οἳ προπορεύσονται ἡμῶν ὁ γὰρ Μωυσῆς οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου οὐκ οἴδαμεν τί γέγονεν αὐτῷ

2 καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς Ααρων περιέλεσθε τὰ ἐνώτια τὰ χρυσᾶ τὰ ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν τῶν γυναικῶν ὑμῶν καὶ θυγατέρων καὶ ἐνέγκατε πρός με

3 καὶ περιείλαντο πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τὰ ἐνώτια τὰ χρυσᾶ τὰ ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἤνεγκαν πρὸς Ααρων

4 καὶ ἐδέξατο ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔπλασεν αὐτὰ ἐν τῇ γραφίδι καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτὰ μόσχον χωνευτὸν καὶ εἶπεν οὗτοι οἱ θεοί σου Ισραηλ οἵτινες ἀνεβίβασάν σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

5 καὶ ἰδὼν Ααρων ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήριον κατέναντι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκήρυξεν Ααρων λέγων ἑορτὴ τοῦ κυρίου αὔριον

6 καὶ ὀρθρίσας τῇ ἐπαύριον ἀνεβίβασεν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ προσήνεγκεν θυσίαν σωτηρίου καὶ ἐκάθισεν ὁ λαὸς φαγεῖν καὶ πιεῖν καὶ ἀνέστησαν παίζειν

7 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων βάδιζε τὸ τάχος ἐντεῦθεν κατάβηθι ἠνόμησεν γὰρ ὁ λαός σου οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

8 παρέβησαν ταχὺ ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἧς ἐνετείλω αὐτοῖς ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς μόσχον καὶ προσκεκυνήκασιν αὐτῷ καὶ τεθύκασιν αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπαν οὗτοι οἱ θεοί σου Ισραηλ οἵτινες ἀνεβίβασάν σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

10 καὶ νῦν ἔασόν με καὶ θυμωθεὶς ὀργῇ εἰς αὐτοὺς ἐκτρίψω αὐτοὺς καὶ ποιήσω σὲ εἰς ἔθνος μέγα

11 καὶ ἐδεήθη Μωυσῆς ἔναντι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἵνα τί κύριε θυμοῖ ὀργῇ εἰς τὸν λαόν σου οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν ἰσχύι μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ

12 μήποτε εἴπωσιν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι λέγοντες μετὰ πονηρίας ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἀποκτεῖναι ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν καὶ ἐξαναλῶσαι αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς παῦσαι τῆς ὀργῆς τοῦ θυμοῦ σου καὶ ἵλεως γενοῦ ἐπὶ τῇ κακίᾳ τοῦ λαοῦ σου

13 μνησθεὶς Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ιακωβ τῶν σῶν οἰκετῶν οἷς ὤμοσας κατὰ σεαυτοῦ καὶ ἐλάλησας πρὸς αὐτοὺς λέγων πολυπληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα ὑμῶν ὡσεὶ τὰ ἄστρα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῷ πλήθει καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην ἣν εἶπας δοῦναι τῷ σπέρματι αὐτῶν καὶ καθέξουσιν αὐτὴν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

14 καὶ ἱλάσθη κύριος περὶ τῆς κακίας ἧς εἶπεν ποιῆσαι τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ

15 καὶ ἀποστρέψας Μωυσῆς κατέβη ἀπὸ τοῦ ὄρους καὶ αἱ δύο πλάκες τοῦ μαρτυρίου ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ πλάκες λίθιναι καταγεγραμμέναι ἐξ ἀμφοτέρων τῶν μερῶν αὐτῶν ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν ἦσαν γεγραμμέναι

16 καὶ αἱ πλάκες ἔργον θεοῦ ἦσαν καὶ ἡ γραφὴ γραφὴ θεοῦ ἐστιν κεκολαμμένη ἐν ταῖς πλαξίν

17 καὶ ἀκούσας Ἰησοῦς τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ λαοῦ κραζόντων λέγει πρὸς Μωυσῆν φωνὴ πολέμου ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ

18 καὶ λέγει οὐκ ἔστιν φωνὴ ἐξαρχόντων κατ᾽ ἰσχὺν οὐδὲ φωνὴ ἐξαρχόντων τροπῆς ἀλλὰ φωνὴν ἐξαρχόντων οἴνου ἐγὼ ἀκούω

19 καὶ ἡνίκα ἤγγιζεν τῇ παρεμβολῇ ὁρᾷ τὸν μόσχον καὶ τοὺς χορούς καὶ ὀργισθεὶς θυμῷ Μωυσῆς ἔρριψεν ἀπὸ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ τὰς δύο πλάκας καὶ συνέτριψεν αὐτὰς ὑπὸ τὸ ὄρος

20 καὶ λαβὼν τὸν μόσχον ὃν ἐποίησαν κατέκαυσεν αὐτὸν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ κατήλεσεν αὐτὸν λεπτὸν καὶ ἔσπειρεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ ἐπότισεν αὐτὸ τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ

21 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς τῷ Ααρων τί ἐποίησέν σοι ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ὅτι ἐπήγαγες ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ἁμαρτίαν μεγάλην

22 καὶ εἶπεν Ααρων πρὸς Μωυσῆν μὴ ὀργίζου κύριε σὺ γὰρ οἶδας τὸ ὅρμημα τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου

23 λέγουσιν γάρ μοι ποίησον ἡμῖν θεούς οἳ προπορεύσονται ἡμῶν ὁ γὰρ Μωυσῆς οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου οὐκ οἴδαμεν τί γέγονεν αὐτῷ

24 καὶ εἶπα αὐτοῖς εἴ τινι ὑπάρχει χρυσία περιέλεσθε καὶ ἔδωκάν μοι καὶ ἔρριψα εἰς τὸ πῦρ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ μόσχος οὗτος

25 καὶ ἰδὼν Μωυσῆς τὸν λαὸν ὅτι διεσκέδασται διεσκέδασεν γὰρ αὐτοὺς Ααρων ἐπίχαρμα τοῖς ὑπεναντίοις αὐτῶν

26 ἔστη δὲ Μωυσῆς ἐπὶ τῆς πύλης τῆς παρεμβολῆς καὶ εἶπεν τίς πρὸς κύριον ἴτω πρός με συνῆλθον οὖν πρὸς αὐτὸν πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ Λευι

27 καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ θέσθε ἕκαστος τὴν ἑαυτοῦ ῥομφαίαν ἐπὶ τὸν μηρὸν καὶ διέλθατε καὶ ἀνακάμψατε ἀπὸ πύλης ἐπὶ πύλην διὰ τῆς παρεμβολῆς καὶ ἀποκτείνατε ἕκαστος τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος τὸν ἔγγιστα αὐτοῦ

28 καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Λευι καθὰ ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ εἰς τρισχιλίους ἄνδρας

29 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς ἐπληρώσατε τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν σήμερον κυρίῳ ἕκαστος ἐν τῷ υἱῷ ἢ τῷ ἀδελφῷ δοθῆναι ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς εὐλογίαν

30 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὴν αὔριον εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς τὸν λαόν ὑμεῖς ἡμαρτήκατε ἁμαρτίαν μεγάλην καὶ νῦν ἀναβήσομαι πρὸς τὸν θεόν ἵνα ἐξιλάσωμαι περὶ τῆς ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν

31 ὑπέστρεψεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον καὶ εἶπεν δέομαι κύριε ἡμάρτηκεν ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ἁμαρτίαν μεγάλην καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς θεοὺς χρυσοῦς

32 καὶ νῦν εἰ μὲν ἀφεῖς αὐτοῖς τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ἄφες εἰ δὲ μή ἐξάλειψόν με ἐκ τῆς βίβλου σου ἧς ἔγραψας

33 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν εἴ τις ἡμάρτηκεν ἐνώπιόν μου ἐξαλείψω αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς βίβλου μου

34 νυνὶ δὲ βάδιζε κατάβηθι καὶ ὁδήγησον τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν εἶπά σοι ἰδοὺ ὁ ἄγγελός μου προπορεύεται πρὸ προσώπου σου ᾗ δ᾽ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ ἐπισκέπτωμαι ἐπάξω ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τὴν ἁμαρτίαν αὐτῶν

35 καὶ ἐπάταξεν κύριος τὸν λαὸν περὶ τῆς ποιήσεως τοῦ μόσχου οὗ ἐποίησεν Ααρων

1 Videns autem populus quod moram faceret descendendi de monte Moyses, congregatus adversus Aaron, dixit: Surge, fac nobis deos, qui nos præcedant: Moysi enim huic viro, qui nos eduxit de terra Ægypti, ignoramus quid acciderit.

2 Dixitque ad eos Aaron: Tollite inaures aureas de uxorum, filiorumque et filiarum vestrarum auribus, et afferte ad me.

3 Fecitque populus quæ jusserat, deferens inaures ad Aaron.

4 Quas cum ille accepisset, formavit opere fusorio, et fecit ex eis vitulum conflatilem: dixeruntque: Hi sunt dii tui Israël, qui te eduxerunt de terra Ægypti.

5 Quod cum vidisset Aaron, ædificavit altare coram eo, et præconis voce clamavit dicens: Cras solemnitas Domini est.

6 Surgentesque mane, obtulerunt holocausta, et hostias pacificas, et sedit populus manducare, et bibere, et surrexerunt ludere.

7 Locutus est autem Dominus ad Moysen, dicens: Vade, descende: peccavit populus tuus, quem eduxisti de terra Ægypti.

8 Recesserunt cito de via, quam ostendisti eis: feceruntque sibi vitulum conflatilem, et adoraverunt, atque immolantes ei hostias, dixerunt: Isti sunt dii tui Israël, qui te eduxerunt de terra Ægypti.

9 Rursumque ait Dominus ad Moysen: Cerno quod populus iste duræ cervicis sit:

10 dimitte me, ut irascatur furor meus contra eos, et deleam eos, faciamque te in gentem magnam.

11 Moyses autem orabat Dominum Deum suum, dicens: Cur, Domine, irascitur furor tuus contra populum tuum, quem eduxisti de terra Ægypti, in fortitudine magna, et in manu robusta?

12 Ne quæso dicant Ægyptii: Callide eduxit eos, ut interficeret in montibus, et deleret e terra: quiescat ira tua, et esto placabilis super nequitia populi tui.

13 Recordare Abraham, Isaac, et Israël servorum tuorum, quibus jurasti per temetipsum, dicens: Multiplicabo semen vestrum sicut stellas cæli; et universam terram hanc, de qua locutus sum, dabo semini vestro, et possidebitis eam semper.

14 Placatusque est Dominus ne faceret malum quod locutus fuerat adversus populum suum.

15 Et reversus est Moyses de monte, portans duas tabulas testimonii in manu sua, scriptas ex utraque parte,

16 et factas opere Dei: scriptura quoque Dei erat sculpta in tabulis.

17 Audiens autem Josue tumultum populi vociferantis, dixit ad Moysen: Ululatus pugnæ auditur in castris.

18 Qui respondit: Non est clamor adhortantium ad pugnam, neque vociferatio compellentium ad fugam: sed vocem cantantium ego audio.

19 Cumque appropinquasset ad castra, vidit vitulum, et choros: iratusque valde, projecit de manu tabulas, et confregit eas ad radicem montis:

20 arripiensque vitulum quem fecerant, combussit, et contrivit usque ad pulverem, quem sparsit in aquam, et dedit ex eo potum filiis Israël.

21 Dixitque ad Aaron: Quid tibi fecit hic populus, ut induceres super eum peccatum maximum?

22 Cui ille respondit: Ne indignetur dominus meus: tu enim nosti populum istum, quod pronus sit ad malum:

23 dixerunt mihi: Fac nobis deos, qui nos præcedant: huic enim Moysi, qui nos eduxit de terra Ægypti, nescimus quid acciderit.

24 Quibus ego dixi: Quis vestrum habet aurum? Tulerunt, et dederunt mihi: et projeci illud in ignem, egressusque est hic vitulus.

25 Videns ergo Moyses populum quod esset nudatus (spoliaverat enim eum Aaron propter ignominiam sordis, et inter hostes nudum constituerat),

26 et stans in porta castrorum, ait: Si quis est Domini, jungatur mihi. Congregatique sunt ad eum omnes filii Levi:

27 quibus ait: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Ponat vir gladium super femur suum: ite, et redite de porta usque ad portam per medium castrorum, et occidat unusquisque fratrem, et amicum, et proximum suum.

28 Feceruntque filii Levi juxta sermonem Moysi, cecideruntque in die illa quasi viginti tria millia hominum.

29 Et ait Moyses: Consecrastis manus vestras hodie Domino, unusquisque in filio, et in fratre suo, ut detur vobis benedictio.

30 Facto autem altero die, locutus est Moyses ad populum: Peccastis peccatum maximum: ascendam ad Dominum, si quomodo quivero eum deprecari pro scelere vestro.

31 Reversusque ad Dominum, ait: Obsecro, peccavit populus iste peccatum maximum, feceruntque sibi deos aureos: aut dimitte eis hanc noxam,

32 aut si non facis, dele me de libro tuo quem scripsisti.

33 Cui respondit Dominus: Qui peccaverit mihi, delebo eum de libro meo:

34 tu autem vade, et duc populum istum quo locutus sum tibi: angelus meus præcedet te. Ego autem in die ultionis visitabo et hoc peccatum eorum.

35 Percussit ergo Dominus populum pro reatu vituli, quem fecerat Aaron.
