Deuteronomy 9:18-1918Then I a lay prostrate before the Lord b as before, forty days and forty nights. I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all the sin that you had committed, c in doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord to provoke him to anger. 19For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure that the Lord bore against you, so that he was ready to destroy you. d But the Lord listened to me that time also.
