He has not given us the punishment for our sins, or the reward of our wrongdoing.
And after everything which has come on us because of our evil-doing and our great sin, and seeing that the punishment which you, O God, have given us, is less than the measure of our sins, and that you have kept from death those of us who are here;
It is through the Lord's love that we have not come to destruction, because his mercies have no limit.
Even then, in your great mercy, you did not put an end to them completely, or give them up; for you are a God of grace and mercy.
O my God, let your ear be turned and give hearing; let your eyes be open and see how we have been made waste and the town which is named by your name: for we are not offering our prayers before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercies.
