Anyway you say it......

Psalm 130:3,4&7

If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,
       O Lord, who could stand?
  But with you there is forgiveness;
       therefore you are feared.
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD,
       for with the LORD is unfailing love
       and with him is full redemption.  

 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
      who would stand a chance?
   As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
      and that's why you're worshiped.
O Israel, wait and watch for God
      with God's arrival comes love,
      with God's arrival comes generous redemption.
                                           The Message

Lord, if you kept a record of our sins,
      who, O Lord, could ever survive?
  But you offer forgiveness,
      that we might learn to fear you.
O Israel, hope in the Lord;
      for with the Lord there is unfailing love.
      His redemption overflows.
                         New Living Translation

If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?  But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
                       King James Version

If You, Lord, should keep account of and treat [us according to our] sins, O Lord, who could stand?    But there is forgiveness with You [just what man needs], that You may be reverently feared and worshiped.
O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is mercy and loving-kindness, and with Him is plenteous redemption.
                  Amplified Bible

JAH, si mirares a los pecados,
    ¿Quién, oh Señor, podrá mantenerse?     Pero en ti hay perdón,
    Para que seas reverenciado.
Espere Israel a Jehová,
    Porque en Jehová hay misericordia,
    Y abundante redención con él;  
                                    Reina-Valera 1960

I am beyond grateful for a God that offers His mercy and grace. Again and again and again. I hope you know His love, too.

Happy Monday~
