Who wrote the (second set of) ten commandments?

God gave Moses the first pair of tablets in Exodus 31:18, writing them with his own finger. Later, in chapter 34, God gave Moses another set (to replace the first ones that Moses broke in Exodus 32:19). But who wrote the replacement set, God or Moses?


And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest. Exodus 34:1

And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me. Deuteronomy 10:4


And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words ... And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. Exodus 34:27-28
