Deuteronomy 9:17

_ _ I took the two tables, ... and broke them before your eyes — not in the heat of intemperate passion, but in righteous indignation, from zeal to vindicate the unsullied honor of God, and by the suggestion of His Spirit to intimate that the covenant had been broken, and the people excluded from the divine favor.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 9:7-29.

Deuteronomy 9:17

I brake them before your eyes — Not by an unbridled passion, but in zeal for God's honour, and by the direction of God's spirit, to signify to tine people, that the covenant between God and them contained in those tables was broken and they were now cast out of God's favour, and could expect nothing from him but fiery indignation.

cast them:
Moses might have done this through distress and anguish of spirit, on beholding their abominable idolatry and dissolute conduct; or probably he did it emblematically, and perhaps by the direction of God; intimating thereby, that as by this act of his the tables were broken in pieces, on which the Law of God was written, so they, by their present conduct, had made a breach in the covenant, and broken the laws of their Maker and Sovereign.
Deuteronomy 9:17 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes.
