6 Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, 1compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;
7 who 2keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He 3will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, 4visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."
