ContextThe Glory of the Lord
12And Moses said to the LORD, See, you say to me, Bring up this people: and you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found grace in my sight. 13Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found grace in your sight, show me now your way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people. 14And he said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. 15And he said to him, If your presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16For wherein shall it be known here that I and your people have found grace in your sight? is it not in that you go with us? so shall we be separated, I and your people, from all the people that are on the face of the earth. 17And the LORD said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have spoken: for you have found grace in my sight, and I know you by name. 18And he said, I beseech you, show me your glory. 19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 20And he said, You can not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and you shall stand on a rock: 22And it shall come to pass, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and will cover you with my hand while I pass by: 23And I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
