the Holy One, says this:
“I live in the high and holy place
with those whose spirits are contrite and humble.
I restore the crushed spirit of the humble
and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.
I will not always be angry.
If I were, all people would pass away—
all the souls I have made.
so I punished these greedy people.
I withdrew from them,
but they kept going on their own stubborn way.
but I will heal them anyway!
I will lead them.
I will comfort those who mourn,
May they have abundant peace, both near and far,”
says the Lord, who heals them.
which is never still
but continually churns up mud and dirt.
says my God.
