8 The Lord is acompassionate and gracious,
bSlow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9 He awill not always strive with us,
Nor will He bkeep His anger forever.
10 He has anot dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high aas the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who 1fear Him.
So far has He aremoved our transgressions from us.
