    Exodus 32:3-4,
    And all the people stripped themselves of the golden earrings that were on their ears and brought them to Aaron. He took from their hand, formed it with an engraving tool, and made it into a molten calf, upon which they said: "These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt!"

    formed it with an engraving tool וַיָּ֤צַר אֹתוֹ֙ בַּחֶ֔רֶט, "vayatzar oto bacheret"

    "cheret" Rashi: .
    [The tool is] like a scribe?s stylus, which engraves letters on tablets and wax-covered tablets, as ?and inscribe on it with a common pen (בְּחֶרֶט אֱנוֹשׁ) ? (Isa. 8:1). This [second interpretation] is what Onkelos rendered: וְצַר יָתֵיהּ בְּזִיפָא, an expression of זִיוּף, a tool with which people engrave letters and designs, known in French as nielle, niello work. With it, signets are engraved.

    ABOVE: The Golden Calf Altar (with the fence the Saudis put around it after Ron Wyatt showed it to them in 1985) ? BELOW: There are several Egyptian-style petroglyphs of cows and bulls on those altar rocks ? this is how we can identify this group of rocks as the Golden Calf Altar!
