And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate1 and gracious God, slow to anger,2 abounding in love3 and faithfulness,47
maintaining love to thousands,5 and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.6 Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;7 he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation."88
Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped.
"O Lord, if I have found favor9 in your eyes," he said, "then let the Lord go with us.10 Although this is a stiff-necked11 people, forgive our wickedness and our sin,12 and take us as your inheritance."13
