ANOTHER NEW BEGINNING God is gracious and forgiving, his love is steadfast. Exodus 33 & 34
7Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the tent of meeting. Everyone who sought the Lord went out to the tent of meeting. 8When Moses went to the tent, the people rose, and each man stood at his tent door and watched until he had gone into the tent. 9When Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tent, and the Lord talked with Moses. 10People saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tent, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door. 11So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tent. 1The Lord said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write the words that were on the first tablets which you broke. 2 In the morning, come up to Mount Sinai, and present yourself to Me on the top of the mountain. 3No man shall come up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; neither flocks nor herds feed before that mountain." 4So he cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early and went up Mount Sinai. 5The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him, and passed before him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children." 8Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 9Then he said, "If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a still-necked people; pardon our iniquity and our sin,and take us as Your inheritance." 10And He said: "Behold, I make a covenant. I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among you shall see the work of the Lord. It is an awesome thing that I will do with you. 11 I am driving out from before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, Hivite and Jebusite. 12Take heed, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, lest it be a snare in your midst. 13Destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images. 14You shall worship no other god.''
