Ki Tisa

  
BackForward
 34:28
34:28 [Moses] remained there with God [on the mountain] for 40 days and 40 nights without eating bread nor drinking water. [God] wrote the words of the covenant, consisting of the Ten Commandments, on the Tablets.
Vayehi-sham im-Adonay arba'im yom ve'arba'im laylah lechem lo achal umayim lo shatah vayichtov al-haluchot et divrey habrit aseret hadevarim.



Commentary:

40 days...
  From 1 Elul until Yom Kippur (Seder Olam 6).

God wrote
  (Rashbam; Ibn Ezra; see Exodus 34:1). However, according to others, '[Moses] wrote' (Lekach Tov on Exodus 34:27; Abarbanel).

Ten Commandments
  Assereth HaDevarim in Hebrew, literally, 'ten statements.'
