Moses on the mountain.
Words of black fire on white
Etched in stone by the finger of God
Aaron in the desert
A molten idol made of Egyptian gold
Raised up and called Elohim.
The wrath of God among the people
Stone tablets shatter in the sand
Israelite blood on Levite knives
“You shall be holy for I, the Lord your God am Holy…
I have brought you out of the land of Egypt to be my people…
I am a jealous God…”
Should not the judge of the whole earth deal justly?
