who redeems thy life from destruction; who crowns thee with mercy and compassion; who satisfies thy mouth with good things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

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.

For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place shall know it no more. But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those that fear him, and his righteousness unto the children's children, to such as keep his covenant and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
