God’s mercy is very great towards those that fear Him.
Psalm 103: 7-12
He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
He hath not dealt with us after out sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
For as the heaven is high above the earth, great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
