6 Both we and our ancestors have sinned;
   we have committed iniquity, have done wickedly.
7 Our ancestors, when they were in Egypt,
   did not consider your wonderful works;
they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,
   but rebelled against the Most High* at the Red Sea.*
8 Yet he saved them for his name’s sake,
   so that he might make known his mighty power.
9 He rebuked the Red Sea,* and it became dry;
   he led them through the deep as through a desert.
10 So he saved them from the hand of the foe,
   and delivered them from the hand of the enemy.
11 The waters covered their adversaries;
   not one of them was left.
12 Then they believed his words;
   they sang his praise.


13 But they soon forgot his works;
   they did not wait for his counsel.
14 But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness,
   and put God to the test in the desert;
15 he gave them what they asked,
   but sent a wasting disease among them.


16 They were jealous of Moses in the camp,
   and of Aaron, the holy one of the Lord.
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
   and covered the faction of Abiram.
18 Fire also broke out in their company;
   the flame burned up the wicked.


19 They made a calf at Horeb
   and worshipped a cast image.
20 They exchanged the glory of God*
   for the image of an ox that eats grass.
21 They forgot God, their Saviour,
   who had done great things in Egypt,
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham,
   and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.*
23 Therefore he said he would destroy them—
   had not Moses, his chosen one,
stood in the breach before him,
   to turn away his wrath from destroying them.
