Psalms 106:43-45

Context

106:43 Many times he delivered 1  them,

but they had a rebellious attitude, 2 

and degraded themselves 3  by their sin.

106:44 Yet he took notice of their distress,

when he heard their cry for help.

106:45 He remembered his covenant with them,

and relented 4  because of his great loyal love.
