2 Kings 17:20
Therefore the LORD rejected all the people of Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of plunderers, until he thrust them from his presence.
Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the LORD and he answered them.
So he said he would destroy them-- had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them.
