Who is a God like You pardoning iniquity, overlooking transgression, for the remnant of His heritage? He will not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy.
19. He will again have compassion on us. He will subdue our iniquities, and You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.

—  Miḵah (Micah) 7:18-19, Tree of Life Bible


Of any mercy
surely this is the most kind, my Adonay:


You sending Your Messenger
to stir the stillness of the water until
I become another confession until
there is only this


Your forgiveness.
