American Standard Version
And all the people brake off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
Young's Literal Translation
and all the people themselves break off the rings of gold which are in their ears, and bring in unto Aaron,
Exodus 32:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And all the people brake off the golden ear-rings - The human being is naturally fond of dress, though this has been improperly attributed to the female sex alone, and those are most fond of it who have the shallowest capacities; but on this occasion the bent of the people to idolatry was greater than even their love of dress, so that they readily stripped themselves of their ornaments in order to get a molten god. They made some compensation for this afterwards; see Exodus 36:22, and See Clarke's note on Exodus 38:9.
