Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:13 - The earth will become desolate because of what its inhabitants have done.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:14 - Shepherd your people with your shepherd's rod, the flock that belongs to you, the one that lives alone in a thicket, in the midst of a pastureland. Allow them to graze in Bashan and Gilead, as they did in the old days.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:18 - There is no other God like you! You forgive sin and pardon the rebellion of those who remain among your people. You do not remain angry forever, but delight in showing loyal love.
