Then the LORD came down in the cloud1 and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD.26
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate3 and gracious God, slow to anger,4 abounding in love5 and faithfulness,67
maintaining love to thousands,7 and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.8 Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;9 he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation."108
Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped.
"O Lord, if I have found favor11 in your eyes," he said, "then let the Lord go with us.12 Although this is a stiff-necked13 people, forgive our wickedness and our sin,14 and take us as your inheritance."15
