Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity.
Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry.
He remembered for their sake his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
He caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive.
Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to thy holy name and glory in thy praise.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD!
