Sirach 5:6
Don’t say, “His compassion is great; he will forgive the whole heap of my sins.” Mercy and wrath are with him, and his anger will rest on sinners.
And say not: The mercy of the Lord is great, he will have mercy on the multitude of my sins.
Don't think that his mercy is so great that he will forgive your sins no matter how many they are. He does show mercy, but he also shows his furious anger with sinners.
Do not say, “His mercy is great; my many sins he will forgive.” For mercy and anger alike are with him; his wrath comes to rest on the wicked.
Do not say, “His mercy is great, he will forgive the multitude of my sins,” for both mercy and wrath are with him, and his anger will rest on sinners.
Do not say, ‘His mercy is great, he will forgive the multitude of my sins’, for both mercy and wrath are with him, and his anger will rest on sinners.
Do not say, ‘His mercy is great, he will forgive the multitude of my sins’, for both mercy and wrath are with him, and his anger will rest on sinners.

And say thou not, The merciful doing of God is great; he shall have mercy on the multitude of my sins. For why mercy and ire nigheth (or approacheth) soon from him, and his ire beholdeth on sinners. [And say thou not, The mercy of God is great; of the multitude of my sins he shall have mercy. Mercy forsooth and wrath from him soon nigheth (or approacheth), and into sinners beholdeth the wrath of him.]
