33:18 And Moses 2  said, “Show me your glory.” 3 

33:19 And the Lord 4  said, “I will make all my goodness 5  pass before your face, and I will proclaim the Lord by name 6  before you; I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, I will show mercy to whom I will show mercy.” 7  33:20 But he added, “You cannot see my face, for no one can 8  see me and live.” 9  33:21 The Lord said, “Here 10  is a place by me; you will station yourself 11  on a rock. 33:22 When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and will cover 12  you with my hand 13  while I pass by. 14  33:23 Then I will take away my hand, and you will see my back, 15  but my face must not be seen.” 16
