Moses leads the people to Mount Sinai where God gives the Ten Commandments to Moses.
While Moses is on the mountain receiving the law, the Israelites cast a golden statue of a calf
and start to worship it as their God. When Moses comes down from the mountain, he sees
the people worshiping the golden calf and celebrating and dancing in wild revelry. His anger
flares and he breaks the tablets containing the Ten Commandments at the base of the mountain!
Moses fuses the golden calf in the fire, grinds it into powder and mixes it with their drinking water. Then Moses calls out, "Whoever is for the Lord come to me" All those who are not for the Lord, Moses puts to the sword! Three thousand people are killed that day!
Moses goes up to the mountain to receive the law from God and gives it to the Israelites. There were over six hundred laws besides the Ten Commandments that were given on such topics as "protection of property", "social responsibility", "laws of justice and mercy", "Sabbath laws", "religious laws", and "miscellaneous laws".
God leads Moses and the Israelites to the hill country of the Amorites (The Promised Land)
and tells them to occupy the promised land! The Israelites send twelve spies, one from each
tribe, to survey the land so as to find the roads they must follow to the cities they must take! After forty
days, the spies return with the report of a land flowing with milk and honey as God had
said, but they also tell the Israelites that the cities are too fortified and the people
that lived there are giants! Only two men who went with the spies, Joshua and Caleb,
were in favor of taking the land promised by the Lord saying, "Don't rebel against the Lord
and do not be afraid of the people in this land. If the Lord is pleased with us, he will
lead us into that land."
Because they are afraid, the Israelites refuse to take the land and try to choose another leader to take them back to Egypt! God tells Moses He will destroy these unbelieving people and make of him a nation that is larger and more powerful than they are. Then Moses asks God to pardon the wickedness of these people saying, "If you slay these people, the nations who have heard how you brought them out of Egypt and remained in their midst will say, 'The Lord was not able to bring these people into the land he swore to give them; that is why He slaughtered them in the desert.'"
God pardons the people, but He tells Moses that because of their unbelief, none of them except for Caleb and Joshua shall see the promised land. God tells Moses to lead the people back into the desert until the new generation of people is ready to take the promised land! They wander forty years, one year for each day the spies remained in the land they refused to take!
During the forty years, they encounter much resistance from the nations surrounding them. They do battle and God protects them. After forty years, Moses leads the people of the new generation back to take the promised land. Moses tells the Israelites that he is going to die and that Joshua will lead them across the Jordan to take the promised land as God had said.
Moses dies at the age of 120 years old and the Israelites morn for thirty days. Then Joshua leads them across the Jordan river and they victoriously take and settle in the land of Canaan.
