Bible: Exodus 34:5-9

34:5 The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there and proclaimed the Lord by name. 1  34:6 The Lord passed by before him and proclaimed: 2  “The Lord, the Lord, 3  the compassionate and gracious 4  God, slow to anger, 5  and abounding in loyal love and faithfulness, 6  34:7 keeping loyal love for thousands, 7  forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin. But he by no means leaves the guilty unpunished, responding to the transgression 8  of fathers by dealing with children and children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.”

34:8 Moses quickly bowed 9  to the ground and worshiped 34:9 and said, “If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, let my Lord 10  go among us, for we 11  are a stiff-necked people; pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.”
