Firstly here are some accounts directly from the bible they despict the actions of moses to start.
9When they came near the camp, Moses saw the calf and the dancing. In terrible anger, he threw the stone tablets to the ground, smashing them at the
foot of the mountain. 20He took the calf they had made and melted it in the fire. And when the metal had cooled, he ground it into powder and mixed it
with water. Then he made the people drink it.
21After that, he turned to Aaron. "What did the people do to you?" he demanded. "How did they ever make you bring such terrible sin upon
2"Don't get upset, sir," Aaron replied. "You yourself know these people and what a wicked bunch they are. 23They said to me, `Make us some gods to
lead us, for something has happened to this man Moses, who led us out of Egypt.' 24So I told them, `Bring me your gold earrings.' When they brought
them to me, I threw them into the fire--and out came this calf!"
25When Moses saw that Aaron had let the people get completely out of control--and much to the amusement of their enemies-- 26he stood at the
entrance to the camp and shouted, "All of you who are on the LORD's side, come over here and join me." And all the Levites came.
27He told them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Strap on your swords! Go back and forth from one end of the camp to the other,
killing even your brothers, friends, and neighbors." 28The Levites obeyed Moses, and about three thousand people died that day.
29Then Moses told the Levites, "Today you have been ordained for the service of the LORD, for you obeyed him even though it meant killing your
own sons and brothers. Because of this, he will now give you a great blessing."
Passage Exodus 23:24:
24Do not worship the gods of these other nations or serve them in any way, and never follow their evil example. Instead, you must utterly conquer them
and break down their shameful idols.
9Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. 10They burned
all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. 11After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, 12they brought
them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across
from Jericho. 13Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. 14But Moses was furious with all the
military commanders[a] who had returned from the battle.
15"Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. 16"These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel
to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. 17Now kill all the boys and all the
women who have slept with a man. 18Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves. 19And all of you who have killed
anyone or touched a dead body must stay outside the camp for seven days. You must purify yourselves and your captives on the third and seventh days.
20Also, purify all your clothing and everything made of leather, goat hair, or wood."
6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, that is as thine own soul, entice thee
secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
7 of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end
of the earth;
8 thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal
him: 9 but thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people
