Context
God's Compassion on Israel

14Feed your people with your rod, the flock of your heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the middle of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old. 15According to the days of your coming out of the land of Egypt will I show to him marvelous things. 16The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand on their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 17They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of you. 18Who is a God like to you, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy. 19He will turn again, he will have compassion on us; he will subdue our iniquities; and you will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 20You will perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.
