“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.”
King James Version (KJV)
16:6 By mercy - By a merciful and just and faithful frame of heart and course of life. Is purged - As they qualify a man to offer up acceptable prayers to God for the pardon of his sins. By fear - By a filial reverence unto God. Depart - They are kept from abusing pardoning mercy, and from returning to folly or wickedness.
