Shepherd your people with your staff,
    the flock of your inheritance,
who dwell alone in a forest
    in the midst of a garden land;
let them graze in Bashan and Gilead
    as in the days of old.
As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
    I will show them marvelous things.

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity
    and passing over transgression
    for the remnant of his inheritance?
He does not retain his anger forever,
    because he delights in steadfast love.
He will again have compassion on us;
    he will tread our iniquities underfoot.
You will cast all our sins
    into the depths of the sea.
You will show faithfulness to Jacob
    and steadfast love to Abraham,
as you have sworn to our fathers
    from the days of old.

Micah 7:14-15, 18-20

Arabs I, Cemetery, Wassily Kadinsky (Russian, 1909)You humble the pride of the proud;
You destroy the plans of nations;
You exalt the humble and humble the exalted;
You make rich and make poor;
You kill and make alive.

Clement of Alexandria, 2nd century
