THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

8:21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

18:26And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

18:27And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:

18:28Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

18:29And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

18:30And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

18:31And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

18:32And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

19:16And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

Exodus (Author Moses)

2:24And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

2:25And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

15:13Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

20:2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

20:6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

20:22And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

22:27For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

25:17And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

32:14And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

32:34Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

33:19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

34:6And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

34:7Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Leviticus (Author Moses)

26:40If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

26:41And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

26:42Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

26:43The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.

26:44And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.

26:45But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

Numbers (Author Moses)

14:18The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

14:19Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

14:20And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

16:48And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

21:8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

4:31(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

5:10And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

5:29O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

7:9Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

32:29O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

32:36For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.

32:43Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

Judges (Author Samuel)

2:18And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge: for it repented the LORD because of their groanings by reason of them that oppressed them and vexed them.

3:9And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.

3:15But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.

10:16And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.

2 Samuel (Author Compiled by Isaiah from records of Samuel, David, Nathan, and Gad.)

12:13And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

14:14For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.

24:14And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.

24:16And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD was by the threshingplace of Araunah the Jebusite.

1 Kings (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Jeremiah from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

8:23And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart:

11:39And I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not for ever.

2 Kings (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Jeremiah from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

13:23And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.

14:26For the LORD saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel.

14:27And the LORD said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.

1 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

16:34O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

2 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

5:13It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;

7:3And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

7:6And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.

7:14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

24:19Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.

30:9For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.

36:15And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

Ezra (Author Ezra)

9:7Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

9:8And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

9:9For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.

9:10And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

9:11Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.

9:12Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.

9:13And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;

9:14Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?

Nehemiah (Author Nehemiah or Ezra or both)

1:10Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

9:17And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.

9:18Yea, when they had made them a molten calf, and said, This is thy God that brought thee up out of Egypt, and had wrought great provocations;

9:19Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go.

9:20Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.

9:27Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies.

9:28But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;

9:29And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law: yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.

9:30Yet many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands.

9:31Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God.

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

11:6And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.

23:2Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.

23:3Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!

23:4I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.

23:5I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.

23:6Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.

24:12Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them.

33:14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

33:15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

33:16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

33:17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

33:18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

33:19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

33:20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

33:21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

33:22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

33:23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:

33:24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

33:25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

33:26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

33:27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

33:28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

33:29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

33:30To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

18:50Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

25:6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

30:5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

31:7I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

32:1Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

32:2Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

32:5I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

36:5Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

50:21These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

57:10For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

62:12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

65:3Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

69:16Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

78:4We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

78:5For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:

78:6That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:

78:7That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

78:8And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

78:9The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.

78:10They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;

78:11And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.

78:12Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

78:13He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.

78:14In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.

78:15He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

78:16He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.

78:17And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.

78:18And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.

78:19Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?

78:20Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?

78:21Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;

78:22Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:

78:23Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,

78:24And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.

78:25Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.

78:26He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.

78:27He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:

78:28And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.

78:29So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;

78:30They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

78:31The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

78:32For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.

78:33Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.

78:34When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.

78:35And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

78:36Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.

78:37For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.

78:38But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.

78:39For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

78:40How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

78:41Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

78:42They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

78:43How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:

78:44And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.

78:45He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

78:46He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.

78:47He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.

78:48He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

78:49He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

78:50He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

78:51And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:

78:52But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

78:53And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

78:54And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

78:55He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

78:56Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:

78:57But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

78:58For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

78:59When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:

78:60So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;

78:61And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.

78:62He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.

78:63The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.

78:64Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.

78:65Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

78:66And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

78:67Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:

78:68But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.

78:69And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.

78:70He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:

78:71From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

78:72So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

80:1Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

85:2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

85:3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

85:10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

86:5For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

86:13For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

86:15But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

89:2For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

89:28My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.

99:8Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

100:5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

103:3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

103:8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

103:9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

103:10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

103:11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

103:12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

103:13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

103:14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

103:17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

106:1Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

106:43Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

106:44Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

106:45And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

106:46He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

107:1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

108:4For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

111:4He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

116:5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

117:2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

118:1O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

118:2Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:3Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:4Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:29O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

ALEPH.

119:64The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

TETH.
