Golden calf

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Golden calf : (Exodus 32:4,8; Deuteronomy 9:16; Nehemiah 9:18). This was a molten image of a calf which the idolatrous Israelites formed at Sinai. This symbol was borrowed from the custom of the Egyptians. It was destroyed at the command of Moses (Exodus 32:20). (See AARON, MOSES.)
