Not to be missed…

Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”  Exodus 34:5-7

Not to be missed in Yahweh naming Himself before Moses is that the first attribute He names of Himself is “merciful.” Of note right behind that is that lots of mercy comes before judgment.
