 Are You Justified in Anger? ~ Was Jehovah? ~ ???

"Let me be, that my anger may blaze against them and I may exterminate them, and let me make you into great nation." (Ex. 32:10) ~ Justified Justice? ~ ???

Although Jehovah expressed what he was inclined to do, this was not his final judgment. In effect, Jehovah was here testing Moses. 

Would he take this opportunity to encourage Jehovah to forget about Israel and to make a mighty nation from Moses’ own descendants? Moses’ response revealed his faith and trust in Jehovah’s justice. 

His reaction showed, not selfish interest, but concern over Jehovah’s name. He did not want it to be defamed. Moses thereby showed that he understood “the mind of Jehovah” concerning this matter. (1 Cor. 2:16) 

What was the outcome? Because Jehovah was not firmly committed to a certain course of action, he “began to feel regret.” 

In Hebrew, this expression can simply mean that Jehovah did not bring about the calamity he stated that he was inclined to bring upon the whole nation. (Ex. 32:11-14) - Bible Speaks -
