Bible: Ex 32:25-29

32:25 Moses saw that the people were running wild, 1  for Aaron had let them get completely out of control, causing derision from their enemies. 2  32:26 So Moses stood at the entrance of the camp and said, “Whoever is for the Lord, come 3  to me.” 4  All the Levites gathered around him, 32:27 and he said to them, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Each man fasten 5  his sword on his side, and go back and forth 6  from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and each one kill his brother, his friend, and his neighbor.’ 7 

32:28 The Levites did what Moses ordered, 8  and that day about three thousand men of the people died. 9  32:29 Moses said, “You have been consecrated 10  today for the Lord, for each of you was against his son or against his brother, so he has given a blessing to you today.” 11
