Bible: Ps 103:8-12

103:8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful;

he is patient 1  and demonstrates great loyal love. 2 

103:9 He does not always accuse,

and does not stay angry. 3 

103:10 He does not deal with us as our sins deserve; 4 

he does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve. 5 

103:11 For as the skies are high above the earth,

so his loyal love towers 6  over his faithful followers. 7 

103:12 As far as the eastern horizon 8  is from the west, 9 

so he removes the guilt of our rebellious actions 10  from us.
