5. And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord.
6. And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
7. Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and the fourth generation.
8. And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. KJV.
The Lord told Moses that he would put him in the cleft of the rock, and cover him with His hand while His glory passes by. Moses would see His back, but His face would not be seen, for there shall no man see Me and live. (Ex. 33:20-23)
If His back is that wonderful, what can His glorious face be like? What is His back like?
