(God speaking to Moses)
“Leave Me alone, that I may destroy them (the Israelites, God’s own chosen people) and wipe out their name from under heaven; and I will make of you (Moses) a nation mightier and greater than they.”
Then I (Moses) fell down before the Lord like the first time, for forty days and nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all your sin whichyou (Israelites) had committed by doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.
The Lord was also angry enough with Aaron to destroy him; so I also prayed for Aaron at the same time. Deuteronomy 9:14, 18, 20
Oh that we would seek to have a heart for the lost and wayward. So much that we would willingly sacrifice our comfort – food, drink, sleep, and interceed (pray) on their behalf before the Lord. OR
That we would revere our Holy God so much we would care about His name and reputation.
“So I fell down before the Lord for the forty days and nights, which I did because the Lord said He would destroy you.
And I prayed to the Lord and said, ‘Lord God, do not destroy Your people, Your inheritance, whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand!
Otherwise, the people of the land from which You brought us will say, “Since the Lord was not able to bring them into the land which He had promised them, and since He hated them, He has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness!”
Deuteronomy 9:25-26, 28 NASB
