Behold, there's a place by me, and you will stand on a rock.
22 And when my glory passes by, I'll cover you with my hand.
23 Then I'll take away my hand and you will see my back parts, but not my face.
A few more words about this episode
Show me your glory. (33:18)
"The word used in the Hebrew text and translated as 'glory' is kabod -- but we are not often told that kabod also may be translated as 'liver' and is sometimes used idiomatically to refer to the male reproductive organ." Jonathan Kirsch, The Harlot By the Side of the Road, p.8.
I'll take away my hand and you will see my back parts, but not my face. (33:23)
God shows his back parts to Moses (The Divine Mooning?)
Although God is too shy to let Moses see his face, he does permit a peek at his "back parts."
