 34:5

 34:7
34:6 God passed by before [Moses] and proclaimed, 'God, God, Omnipotent, merciful and kind, slow to anger, with tremendous [resources of] love and truth.
Vaya'avor Adonay al-panav vayikra Adonay Adonay El rachum vechanun erech apayim verav-chesed ve'emet.
34:7 He remembers deeds of love for thousands [of generations], forgiving sin, rebellion and error. He does not clear [those who do not repent], but keeps in mind the sins of the fathers to their children and grandchildren, to the third and fourth generation.'
Notser chesed la'alafim nose avon vafesha vechata'ah venakeh lo yenake poked avon avot al-banim ve'al-bney vanim al-shileshim ve'al-ribe'im.
