Nor will I always be angry;

For the spirit would fail before Me,

And the souls wwhich I have made.

17 For the iniquity of xhis covetousness

18 I have seen his ways, and awill heal him;

I will also lead him,

And restore comforts to him

And to bhis mourners.

19 “I create cthe fruit of the lips:

Peace, peace dto him who is far off and to him who is near,”

Says the Lord,

“And I will heal him.”
