1. He said to them, "If you accept the Torah, it will be good. If not, you will be buried here."
2. They could claim that they accepted the Torah only under duress. However, Bnei later, at the time of the miracle of Purim, Bnei Yisrael willingly accepted the Torah.
3. Hashem created the world on condition that Bnei Yisrael would fulfill His Torah. We deduce this from the verse, "And it was night and it was day, the sixth day (Yom ha'Shishi)." Had they not accepted the Torah, Hashem would have destroyed the world.
4. After they sinned with the golden calf, two angels came down to each person. Each removed one crown.
5. The Beraisa explains that this verse refers to people who are insulted but do not insult others. They hear people scorn them and do not reply. They serve Hashem out of love and are happy (i.e. they accept Hashem's judgment) when they are scorned.
