Bible: Ps 103:9-14

103:9 He does not always accuse,

and does not stay angry. 1 

103:10 He does not deal with us as our sins deserve; 2 

he does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve. 3 

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

so his loyal love towers 4  over his faithful followers. 5 

103:12 As far as the eastern horizon 6  is from the west, 7 

so he removes the guilt of our rebellious actions 8  from us.

103:13 As a father has compassion on his children, 9 

so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers. 10 

103:14 For he knows what we are made of; 11 

he realizes 12  we are made of clay. 13
