On Mount Sinai Moses was given a second set of tables with the Ten Commandments. He had shattered the first set when his people turned out to worship pagan gods. This time his brother Aaron and the people meet him with enthusiasm. But they do fear his face, which is still shining after the forty days he spent close to God. Moses has to wear a veil when he speaks with the people.
