Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you.– My beloved had withdrawn himself, [and] was gone: . . . I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.–I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart. I have seen his ways, and will heal him.–Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, when he led thee by the way?
He arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.–I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
