: What's the meaning of written in stone by the hand of God?

Here's what I think it means. (From a previous discussion.)

I checked my 'Oxford Study Bible' and found:

'Decalogue: See "Ten Commandments."'

'Ten Commandments: Exod. 20.1 - 17; 34.28; Lev. 19.1-4; Deut. 5.6 - 21, 10.4'

Exodus 20.1 - 17 relates how the Ten Commandments were written in stone by the God who confered with Moses.
