me shall be blotted out of my book. The Lord then told Moses to lead the people to the place he spoke of. But when the time came, the Lord would punish them and he did, by sending a plague upon them.
To not lose faith when what you want or need does not happen fast enough and you are at fault for the outcome you caused that was a result out of your impatience.
Continuation Of description
But Moses sought the favor of the Lord, reminding him as to why he should not wreak havoc upon them. He told him, ”Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” The Lord relented, not destroying them. Moses then went back down the Mountain carrying two tablets that was the work of the god,the writing of god. When Moses reached the camp he saw the people there praising and dancing around the golden calf, he became angry and threw the tablets to the ground breaking them to pieces and took the calf, throwing it into the fire that was created by the people.

The Golden Calf: Biblical Allusion
The story can be found in Exodus 32. When the people saw Moses was long in coming down from the mountain where he was talking to God, the people became antsy and gathered around Aaron, saying, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.” Aaron then answered them, telling them to take off their gold earrings. Men, wives, and children did this bringing them to Aaron who made an idol cast in the shape of a calf. The people when seeing the calf say, "These are your gods who brought you out of Egypt." Aaron seeing this made an altar, where people could bring offerings to it. The Lord told Moses to go back down the mountain for the people he brought up out of Egypt have become corrupt. When the Lord finish telling Moses what has happened, he tells Moses to leave him alone so that his anger may burn so that he can destroy them.
