Bible: Acts 7:36-43

7:36 This man led them out, performing wonders and miraculous signs 1  in the land of Egypt, 2  at 3  the Red Sea, and in the wilderness 4  for forty years. 7:37 This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, 5 God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers.’ 6  7:38 This is the man who was in the congregation 7  in the wilderness 8  with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors, 9  and he 10  received living oracles 11  to give to you. 12  7:39 Our 13  ancestors 14  were unwilling to obey 15  him, but pushed him aside 16  and turned back to Egypt in their hearts, 7:40 saying to Aaron, ‘Make us gods who will go in front of us, for this Moses, who led us out of the land of Egypt 17  – we do not know what has happened to him! 18  7:41 At 19  that time 20  they made an idol in the form of a calf, 21  brought 22  a sacrifice to the idol, and began rejoicing 23  in the works of their hands. 24  7:42 But God turned away from them and gave them over 25  to worship the host 26  of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: ‘It was not to me that you offered slain animals and sacrifices 27  forty years in the wilderness, was it, 28  house of Israel? 7:43 But you took along the tabernacle 29  of Moloch 30  and the star of the 31  god Rephan, 32  the images you made to worship, but I will deport 33  you beyond Babylon.’ 34
