Exodus 32:31-32 (KJV)
And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold
Moses’ ministry toward Israel is a unique one. He served as:
- Deliverer from Egypt,
- Prophet of God,
- Leader of the nation and, in this instance the
- Shepherd of God’s flock
Fully aware of the sin of this people
Moses pled for them.
Acknowledging the magnitude of their sin
Moses asked God to forgive them.
Having been blamed for their troubles in the past
still, Moses asked God to blot out his name rather than their own.
This is truly praying on the behalf of others.
