10:1–5 Summarizing the material in Ex. 34:1–4 and 40:20, Moses here telescopes the receiving of the commandments and the building of the ark. Moses was twice on the Mount. He received the directions for the tabernacle the first time. It and its furniture were built after Moses came down the second time. The tablets were put in the ark when the tabernacle was set up, as mentioned in Ex. 40:20.
