Then he comes to men and says, 'I sinned,1 and perverted what was right,2 but I did not get what I deserved.3
He redeemed4 my soul from going down to the pit,5 and I will live to enjoy the light.'6
"God does all these things to a man7-- twice, even three times8--
to turn back9 his soul from the pit,10 that the light of life11 may shine on him.12
