Moses Receives the Ten Commandments on Two Tablets of Stone
“And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.” Exodus 31:18 ASV
Illustration of God handing Moses the New Law on tablets of stone. Moses kneels on Mount Sinai and reaches up to God, who appears in a cloud. Five angels, three on one side of God and two on the other, play trumpets pointed down to earth. The Israelites can be seen camped at the bottom of the mountain. The golden calf is visible.
