Psalm 103, 8-14
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy,
slow to anger and great of kindness.
He will not always accuse me,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so is his mercy great upon those who fear him.
As far as the east is removed from the west,
so far has he removed our sins from us.
As a father cares for his children,
so does the Lord care for those who fear him.
For he himself knows whereof we are made,
he remembers that we are but dust
