The LORD works righteousness1 and justice for all the oppressed.27
He made known3 his ways4 to Moses, his deeds5 to the people of Israel:
The LORD is compassionate and gracious,6 slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;710
he does not treat us as our sins deserve8 or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love9 for those who fear him;1012
as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions11 from us.
As a father has compassion12 on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,13 he remembers that we are dust.14
