Then Moses said to the LORD, "See, r You say to me, 'Bring up this people.' But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, s 'I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.'
"Now therefore, I pray, t if I have found grace in Your sight, u show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is v Your people."
And He said, w "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you x rest."
Then he said to Him, y "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.
"For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, z except You go with us? So we a shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth."
So the LORD said to Moses, b "I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name."
And he said, "Please, show me c Your glory."
Then He said, "I will make all My d goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. e I will be gracious to whom I will be f gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
But He said, "You cannot see My face; for g no man shall see Me, and live."
And the LORD said, "Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock.
"So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you h in the cleft of the rock, and will i cover you with My hand while I pass by.
"Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall j not be seen."

"Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin."
So the LORD said to Moses, "I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.
I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.
As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, And I shall keep it to the end.

So He said, "I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.
And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their descendants after them; and He brought you out of Egypt with His Presence, with His mighty power.
In all their affliction He was afflicted, And the Angel of His Presence saved them; In His love and in His pity He redeemed them; And He bore them and carried them All the days of old.
But when you cross over the Jordan and dwell in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to inherit, and He gives you rest from all your enemies round about, so that you dwell in safety.
Therefore it shall be, when the LORD your God has given you rest from your enemies all around, in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance, that you will blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. You shall not forget.
The LORD gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
And now the LORD your God has given rest to your brethren, as He promised them; now therefore, return and go to your tents and to the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side of the Jordan.
" Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up in your midst, lest I consume you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked people."

And He said: "Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.
For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?
Or did God ever try to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Now the glory of the LORD rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
The sight of the glory of the LORD was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.
1 Timothy 6:16
Who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
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."
For He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.
So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.
Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.
Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

Song of Solomon 2:14
"O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret places of the cliff, Let me see your face, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your face is lovely."
To go into the clefts of the rocks, And into the crags of the rugged rocks, From the terror of the LORD And the glory of His majesty, When He arises to shake the earth mightily.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, And made Me a polished shaft; In His quiver He has hidden Me.
And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, 'You are My people.'
But He said, "You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.
No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
