38 d“This is he who was in the 5congregation in the wilderness with ethe Angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, fthe one who received the living goracles 6to give to us, 39 whom our fathers hwould not obey, but rejected. And in their hearts they turned back to Egypt, 40 isaying to Aaron, ‘Make us gods to go before us; as for this Moses who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’ 41 jAnd they made a calf in those days, offered sacrifices to the idol, and krejoiced in the works of their own hands. 42 Then lGod turned and gave them up to worship mthe host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the Prophets:
n‘Did you offer Me slaughtered animals and sacrifices during forty years in the wilderness,
O house of Israel?
And the star of your god Remphan,
Images which you made to worship;
And oI will carry you away beyond Babylon.’
