Exodus 32:10-12 New Life Version (NLV)
10 Now let Me alone, so My anger may be against them and I may destroy them. But I will make you into a great nation.”
11 Then Moses begged the Lord his God, saying, “O Lord, why are you very angry against Your people whom You brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and a strong hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘He brought them out to kill them in the mountains and destroy them from the earth’? Turn from Your anger and change Your mind about destroying Your people.
