Exodus 32:11-14

The Golden Calf

11 s Then Moses pleaded with 1 the LORD his God, and said: "LORD, why does Your wrath burn hot against Your people whom You have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 t "Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, 'He brought them out to harm them, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth'? Turn from Your fierce wrath, and u relent from this harm to Your people. 13 "Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You v swore by Your own self, and said to them, w 'I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.' " 2 14 So the LORD x relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.
