After Israel sinned by worshipping the golden calf, Moses interceded with

When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the
mountain, the people gathered around Aaron, and said to him, Come,

of a calf; and they said, These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up
out of the land of Egypt! 5When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it;
and Aaron made proclamation and said, Tomorrow shall be a festival to
the LORD. 6They rose early the next day, and offered burnt offerings and
brought sacrifices of well-being; and the people sat down to eat and drink,
