    The relationship of the biblical tradition to golden calf worship seems to be entirely negative. In the Torah and the Book of Kings, harsh criticism is wielded against the golden calf the Israelites made in the wilderness (Exod 32; Deut ) and the calves erected by Jeroboam ben Nebat (1 Kgs ) at Dan and Bethel during his reign over the Northern Kingdom of Israel.   In turning to calf-worship, Jeroboam spurned God’s goodness and brought about his own demise: “The sin of the house of Jeroboam led to its downfall and to its destruction from the face of the earth” (1 Kings ). There are other places throughout 1 and 2 Kings that refer to the sins .

For this author—known as the Elohist—the Covenant Collection is not one part of the law, or one law collection among others, but is the law collection, the only laws that YHWH ever gave to Israel.

God certainly held the people accountable for their corruption (Exodus –10) and was ready to destroy them for their sin. Moses’ personal intercession on behalf of his people saved them. “Calf Book” is a web based application along with a mobile app to help livestock producers manage their cow/calf data.
