Then Moses said, "Please, let me see Your glory."
He said, "I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim the name Yahweh before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
But He answered, "You cannot see My face, for no one can see Me and live."
The LORD said, "Here is a place near Me. You are to stand on the rock,
and when My glory passes by, I will put you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.
Then I will take My hand away, and you will see My back, but My face will not be seen."
