For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said,
“In repentance and rest you will be saved,
In quietness and trust is your strength.”
But you were not willing,
Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
My soul waits in silence for God only;
From Him is my salvation.
“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear;
But now my eye sees You;
Therefore I retract,
And I repent in dust and ashes.”
They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs;
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.
And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
