Oh, do not remember former iniquities against us! Let Your tender mercies come speedily to meet us, For we have been brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, For the glory of Your name; And deliver us, and provide atonement for our sins, For Your name's sake!
Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" Let there be known among the nations in our sight The avenging of the blood of Your servants which has been shed. Let the groaning of the prisoner come before You; According to the greatness of Your power Preserve those who are appointed to die; And return to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom Their reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord. So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations.
Look at that first paragraph, reading it over and over; let it soak into your very being; let it bring tears of joy and thanksgiving your soul. Ask yourself the all important question, “Why, LORD, why should I even dare to suggest that You forget my inequities? You, the Almighty, the Perfection of all that is good and right?”
The answer is there, not hidden in code, but plain for all to see. It is for the glory of His name. It is for His name's sake. It is so all will see and acknowledge that You, the LORD, God, the Almighty are the forgiving God, the redeeming God, the Creator God, the One who said, “Let there be...And there was.”
