Exodus 32:9–10; Exodus 32:22; Exodus 33:5; Exodus 34:9

And the Lord said to Moses, I have seen this people, and behold, hit is a stiff-necked people. 10 Now therefore ilet me alone, that jmy wrath may burn hot against them and kI may consume them, in order that lI may make a great nation of you.


22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord burn hot. zYou know the people, that they are set on evil.


For the Lord had said to Moses, Say to the people of Israel, You are a vstiff-necked people; if for a single moment I should go up among you, I would yconsume you. So now xtake off your ornaments, that I may know what to do with you.


And he said, If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, please llet the Lord go in the midst of us, for mit is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for nyour inheritance.
