CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He saw the calf, and the dancing - Dancing before the idol takes place in almost every Hindoo idolatrous feast - Ward.

But we must not excuse this act; it was rash and irreverent; God's writing should not have been treated in this way.

So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.
Moses replied: "It is not the sound of victory, it is not the sound of defeat; it is the sound of singing that I hear."
The LORD said to Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.
When I looked, I saw that you had sinned against the LORD your God; you had made for yourselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. You had turned aside quickly from the way that the LORD had commanded you.
So I took the two tablets and threw them out of my hands, breaking them to pieces before your eyes.
Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.
