EXODUS 33:12-23

12. Then Moses said to the LORD, ``See, You say to me, `Bring up this people!' But You Yourself have not let me know whom You will send with me. Moreover, You have said, `I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.' 13. ``Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people." 14. And He said, ``My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest." 15. Then he said to Him, ``If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16. ``For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?" 17. The LORD said to Moses, ``I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name." 18. Then Moses said, ``I pray You, show me Your glory!" 19. And He said, ``I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion." 20. But He said, ``You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!" 21. Then the LORD said, ``Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22. and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23. ``Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."
