Steadfast Love for Thousands

Posted: December 15, 2010 in bible, god

Exodus 34:6-8:

“Yahweh passed before Moses and proclaimed, ‘Yahweh, Yahweh, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands [of generations], forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.’

And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.”

Notice the grace of our great God – wrath to the third and fourth generation, but steadfast love for thousands of generations.  We, too, should bow and worship.
