Nehemiah 9:17 ESV

17 They refused to obey 1and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God ready to forgive, 2gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them.
