The Lord is (A)merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
(B)He will not always chide,
    nor will he (C)keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us (D)according to our sins,
    nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For (E)as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his (F)steadfast love toward (G)those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far does he (H)remove our transgressions from us.
13 As (I)a father shows compassion to his children,
    so the Lord shows compassion (J)to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;[a]
    he (K)remembers that we are dust.
