 10:2
 10:3
10:2 I will write on the tablets the words which were on the first tablets that you broke, and you shall place them in the ark.'
Ve'echtov al-haluchot et-hadevarim asher hayu al-haluchot harishonim asher shibarta vesamtam ba'aron.
10:3 I made an ark out of acacia wood and carved out two tablets like the first. I then climbed the mountain with the two tablets in my hand.
Va'a'as aron atsey shitim va'efsol shney-luchot avanim karishonim va'a'al haharah ushney haluchot beyadi.



Commentary:

the words which were on...
  Hence, both the first and second tablets had exactly the same wording.

place them
  Some say that this denotes the second tablets, while others say that it denotes the first. See note on Deuteronomy 10:1.

acacia wood
  See Exodus 25:4.
