What is the significance of the difference between the first set of the 10 commandments and the second set?

Rabbinic teachings say the first set had 172 words and the second set had 17 less words. The second set lacked "tov" Hebrew value of 17, which God said afer each day of creation "and it was good'. Is this true? If so, how is this significant to us?
