New American Standard Bible
17 “They refused to listen,
And (A)did not remember Your wondrous deeds which You had performed among them;
So they became stubborn and (B)appointed a leader to return to their slavery [a]in Egypt.
But You are a God (C)of forgiveness,
Gracious and compassionate,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness;
And You did not forsake them.
- Nehemiah 9:17 So Gr and some Heb mss; Heb reads in their rebellion
