2 Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings
that your wives, your sons, and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.”
3 So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron.
4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast
in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool.
Then they said, “These are your gods, O Israel,
who brought you up out of Egypt.”
