Bible: Num 14:14-21

14:14 then they will tell it to the inhabitants 1  of this land. They have heard that you, Lord, are among this people, that you, Lord, are seen face to face, 2  that your cloud stands over them, and that you go before them by day in a pillar of cloud and in a pillar of fire by night. 14:15 If you kill 3  this entire people at once, 4  then the nations that have heard of your fame will say, 14:16 Because the Lord was not able to bring this people into the land that he swore to them, he killed them in the wilderness.’ 14:17 So now, let the power of my Lord 5  be great, just as you have said, 14:18 The Lord is slow to anger and abounding in loyal love, 6  forgiving iniquity and transgression, 7  but by no means clearing 8  the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children until the third and fourth generations.’ 9  14:19 Please forgive 10  the iniquity of this people according to your great loyal love, 11  just as you have forgiven this people from Egypt even until now.”

14:20 Then the Lord said, “I have forgiven them as you asked. 12  14:21 But truly, as I live, 13  all the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord.
