Micah 7:16–20

16 The nations wshall see and be ashamed of all their might;

xThey shall put their hand over their mouth;

Their ears shall be deaf.

17 They shall lick the ydust like a serpent;

zThey shall crawl from their holes like 9snakes of the earth.

aThey shall be afraid of the Lord our God,

And shall fear because of You.

18 bWho is a God like You,

cPardoning iniquity

And passing over the transgression of dthe remnant of His heritage?

eHe does not retain His anger forever,

Because He delights in fmercy. 1

19 He will again have compassion on us,

And will subdue our iniquities.

You will cast all 2our sins

Into the depths of the sea.

20 gYou will give truth to Jacob

And 3mercy to Abraham,

hWhich You have sworn to our fathers

From days of old.
