atoned for their iniquity
and did not destroy them;
he restrained his anger often
and did not stir up all his wrath.

had not Moses, his chosen one,
stood in the breach before him,
to turn away his wrath from destroying them.

for the sake of my praise I restrain it for you,
that I may not cut you off.
