14 Bible Verses about "A Forgiving God"
who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”
‘The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations.’
Iniquities prevail against me;
As for our transgressions, You forgive them.
“They refused to listen,
And did not remember Your wondrous deeds which You had performed among them;
So they became stubborn and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt.
But You are a God of forgiveness,
Gracious and compassionate,
Slow to anger and abounding in loving kindness;
And You did not forsake them.
O Lord our God, You answered them;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive,
And abundant in loving kindness to all who call upon You.
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake,
And I will not remember your sins.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
Who is a God like You, who pardons iniquity
And passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of His possession?
He does not retain His anger forever,
Because He delights in unchanging love.
To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him;
He prayed to the Lord and said, “Please Lord, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country? Therefore in order to forestall this I fled to Tarshish, for I knew that You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, and one who relents concerning calamity.
