|NASB||Exodus 34:1 Now the LORD said to Moses, "Cut out for yourself two stone tablets like the former ones, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the former tablets which you shattered.|
|Exodus 34:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stone like the first, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you smashed [when you learned of Israel's idolatry].|
IT SAYS GOD WILL WRITE UPON THE TABLETS, CORRECT,BUT IN EX 34:28 DOES IT SAY THAT MOSES WROTE THE SECOND SET OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
CAN YOU TELL US FROM A EARLYER OR HEBREW TRANSLATION WHO WROTE THE SECOND SET OF COMMANDMENTS
Bible Answer: Greetings BOYD B.!
Here is a little commentary on Exodus 34:28..
"34:28 he wrote. Here the Lord, rather than Moses, is probably the subject (see v. 1). the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments. The two phrases are synonymous (see note on 20:1)." (1)
"Exodus 34:28 He wrote - God." (2)
"..1. He came down enriched with the best treasure for he brought in his hands the two tables of the law, written with the finger of God, #v. 28, 29. It is a great favour to have the law given us; this favour was shown to Israel, #Ps. cxlvii. 19, 20. It is a great honour to be employed in delivering God's law to others; this honour was done to Moses." (3)
The consensus among these sources say that God was the one who wrote the second set of tablets, not Moses.
