Micah 7:14-20 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

14 Shepherd thy people with thy staff,
    the flock of thy inheritance,
who dwell alone in a forest
    in the midst of a garden land;
let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
    as in the days of old.

15 As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt
    I will show them[a] marvelous things.

16 The nations shall see and be ashamed
    of all their might;
they shall lay their hands on their mouths;
    their ears shall be deaf;
17 they shall lick the dust like a serpent,
    like the crawling things of the earth;
they shall come trembling out of their strongholds,
    they shall turn in dread to the Lord our God,
    and they shall fear because of thee.

God’s Compassion and Steadfast Love

18 Who is a God like thee, pardoning iniquity
    and passing over transgression
    for the remnant of his inheritance?
He does not retain his anger for ever
    because he delights in steadfast love.
19 He will again have compassion upon us,
    he will tread our iniquities under foot.
Thou wilt cast all our[b] sins
    into the depths of the sea.
20 Thou wilt show faithfulness to Jacob
    and steadfast love to Abraham,
as thou hast sworn to our fathers
    from the days of old.
