Moses Intercedes

12 Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘(A)Bring up this people!’ But You Yourself have not let me know (B)whom You will send with me. (C)Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’ 13 Now then, if I have found favor in Your sight in any way, please (D)let me know Your ways so that I may know You, in order that I may find favor in Your sight. (E)Consider too, that this nation is Your people.” 14 And He said, “(F)My presence shall go with you, and (G)I will give you rest.” 15 Then he said to Him, “(H)If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16 For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that (I)we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are on the face of the [a]earth?”
