Micah 7:16-20

The prophet continues

16 Nations will see and be ashamed of all their strength; they will cover their mouths; their ears will be deaf.
17 They will lick dust like the snake, like things that crawl on the ground. They will come trembling from their strongholds to the LORD our God; they will dread and fear you!
18 Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity, overlooking the sin of the few remaining for his inheritance? He doesn't hold on to his anger forever; he delights in faithful love.
19 He will once again have compassion on us; he will tread down our iniquities. You will hurl all our sins into the depths of the sea.
20 You will provide faithfulness to Jacob, faithful love to Abraham, as you swore to our ancestors a long time ago.
