Karl, I haven't been following all of this in detail, but are you really 
trying to deny that the commandments were written on stone tablets? That 
seems clear from Exodus 24:12, 31:18, 34:4. The tablets seem to have 
been small enough to be carried in his hand, but also large enough for 
what was written on them - and it is not clear whether this is to be 
understood as just the Ten Commandments but also chapters 21-23. I 
suppose the exact meaning of the Hebrew might be reinterpreted, but if 
LXT 'BN doesn't mean "stone tablets", of some size or other, what does 
it mean?
