16 vFor I will not contend forever,
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
I was angry and struck him;
yI hid and was angry,
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.”
