“He will turn again,
he will have compassion upon us;
he will subdue our iniquities;
and thou wilt cast all their sins into the
depths of the sea”
FROM ANGER TO LOVE
God never turns from His love, but He soon turns
from His wrath. His love to His chosen is
according to His nature, His anger is only
according to His office: He loves because He is
love, He frowns because it is necessary for our
good. He will come back to the place in which
His heart rests, namely, His love to His own,
and then He will take pity upon our grief's and
What a choice promise is this —
“He will subdue our iniquities”!
He will conquer them.
They cry to enslave us, but the Lord will give
us victory over them by His own right hand. Like
the Canaanites, they shall be beaten, put under
the yoke, and ultimately slain.
As for the guilt of our sins, how gloriously is
that removed! “All their sins,” — yes, the whole
host of them; “thou wilt cast” — only an
almighty arm could perform such a wonder; ‘into
the depths of the sea” -where Pharaoh and his
chariots went down. Not into the shallows out of
which they might be washed up by the tide, but
into the “depths” shall our sins be hurled. They
are all gone.
They sank into the bottom like a stone.
