Exod 32:30-34

30On the next day Moses said to the people, “You have sinned a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.”31So Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold.32But now, if you will only forgive their sin—but if not, blot me out of the book that you have written.”33But the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book.34But now go, lead the people to the place about which I have spoken to you; see, my angel shall go in front of you. Nevertheless, when the day comes for punishment, I will punish them for their sin.”
