Prayer For Mercy

3 When you did terrible deeds [which] we did not {expect}, you came down; [the] mountains quaked because of your {presence}. 4 And since ancient [times] they have not heard, have not listened, no eye has seen a God except you; he {acts} for the one who waits for him. 5 You meet with the one who rejoices, one who does righteousness. In your ways they remember you. Look! You were angry and we sinned against them [in] ancient [times] and we were saved.
