Deuteronomy 9:18-19

18Then I alay prostrate before the Lord bas before, forty days and forty nights. I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all the sin that you had committed, cin 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. dBut the Lord listened to me that time also.
