Moses goes up Mount Sinai to receive the two tablets of commandments. He is to stay there and learn for 40 days. The Israelites miscalculated and thought that Moses was taking too long a time to come down from the mountain.
They gathered around Aaron and said to him,Make us an oracle to lead us. We have no idea what happened to Moses, the man who brought us out of Egypt.
Take the rings off the ears of your wives and childrenreplied Aaron.Bring them to me
All the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron. He received from their hands and fashioned it with a graving tool and made it into a molten calf. And they said,These are your gods O Israel who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.(Exodus 32:1-4)
When Moses approached the camp,
He saw the calf and the dancing. Moses displayed anger and threw down the tables that were in his hand, shattering them at the foot of the mountain."(Exodus 32:19)
The sin of the golden calf was considered a very grave sin. Hashem was with anger and wrath and Moses pleaded with Hashem not to destroy the Israelites.(Exodus 32:11).
We first pair the keywords Calf with Anger and Wrath and obtain the smallest area table in the Torah as shown below. The probability that a monkey text in the ELS random placement text population would have as small a table as this one is 244/10,000.
The verse in which the skip 1 ELS for calf appears is the verse about the Golden Calf. It is interesting that two verses later the Torah speaks directly about Hashem's anger. This is an instance of a phenomenon where a verse near the ELS has a word that is the same as a word in the ELS.
