5 And when the Lord was come down in a cloud, Moses stood with him, calling upon the
name of the Lord.
6 And when he passed before him, he said: O the Lord, the Lord God, merciful
and gracious, patient and of much compassion, and true,
Isaias 1: 17-20
17 Learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge for the fatherless,
defend the widow.
18 And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your
sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson,
they shall be white as wool.
19 if you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land.
20 But if you will not, and will provoke me to wrath: the sword shall devour you because
the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
2 Esdras 9:31 (Nehemiah 9:31)
31 Nevertheless, in your great mercies you
did not make an end of them or forsake them, for you are a gracious
and merciful God.
Psalm 103:9-18 (102 D. Rheims)
9 He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor
rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he
hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us.
13 As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord
compassion on them that fear him:
14 for he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust:
15 man's days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish.
16 For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and
unto eternity upon them that fear him: And his justice unto children's children,
18 to such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them.
Psalm 130:3-4 (129 Douay R.)
3 If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.
4 For with thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word:
21 Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for thou art my servant. I have formed
thee, thou art my servant, O Israel, forget me not.
22 I have blotted out thy iniquities as a cloud, and thy sins as a
mist: return to me, for I have redeemed thee.
22 Heth. The mercies of the Lord that we are not
consumed: because his commiserations have not failed.
Divine Mercy - Holy Bible New Testament
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.
14 For if you will forgive men their
offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences.
15 But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offences.
Luke 15:11-32 - The Prodigal son
11 And he said: A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his father: Father, give me the portion of
substance that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his substance.
13 And not many days after, the younger son, gathering all together, went abroad
into a far country: and there wasted his substance, living riotously.
14 And after he had spent all, there came a mighty famine in that country; and he
began to be in want.
15 And he went and cleaved to one of the citizens of that country. And he sent him
into his farm to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks the swine did eat; and no
man gave unto him.
17 And returning to himself, he said: How many hired servants in my father's house
abound with bread, and I here perish with hunger?
18 I will arise, and will go to my father, and say to him: Father, I have sinned
against heaven, and before thee:
19 I am not worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And rising up he came to his father. And when he was yet a great way off, his
father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and running to him fell upon his neck, and
21 And the son said to him: Father, I have sinned against
heaven, and before thee, I am not now worthy to be called thy son.
22 And the father said to his servants: Bring forth quickly the first robe, and put
it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it, and let us eat and make merry:
24 Because this my son was dead, and is come to life again: was lost, and is found.
And they began to be merry.
25 Now his elder son was in the field, and when he came and drew nigh to the house,
he heard music and dancing:
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said to him: Thy brother is come, and thy father hath killed the fatted
calf, because he hath received him safe.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in. His father therefore coming out began to
29 And he answering, said to his father: Behold, for so many years do I serve thee,
and I have never transgressed thy commandment, and yet thou hast never given me a kid to
make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son is come, who hath devoured his substance with
harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 But he said to him: Son, thou art always with me, and all I have is thine.
32 But it was fit that we should make merry and be glad, for this thy brother was
dead and is come to life again; he was lost, and is found.
John 8:3-7 - Mary Magdalen
3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they
set her in the midst,
4 And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou?
6 And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself
down, wrote with his finger on the ground.
7 When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a
stone at her.
8 And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground.
9 But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone
remained, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee?
Hath no man condemned thee?
11 Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn
thee. Go, and now sin no more.
Prayer of Manasseh - A prayer for Mercy
1. O Lord Almighty, God of our ancestors, of Abraham and Isaac and
Jacob and of their righteous offspring;
2 you who made heaven and earth with all their order;
3 who shackled the sea by your word of command, who
confined the deep and sealed it with your terrible and glorious name;
4 at whom all things shudder, and tremble before your power,
5 for your glorious splendor cannot be
borne, and the wrath of your threat to sinners is unendurable;
6 yet immeasurable
and unsearchable is your promised mercy,
7 for you are the Lord Most High, of great compassion,
long-suffering, and very merciful, and you relent at human suffering.
O Lord, according to your great goodness you
have promised repentance and forgiveness to those who have sinned against you, and in the multitude of your mercies you have appointed repentance for sinners,
so that they may be saved.
8 Therefore you, O Lord, God of the righteous, have not
appointed repentance for the righteous, for Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, who did not sin
against you, but you have appointed repentance for me, who am a
9 For the sins I have committed are
more in number than the sand of the sea; my transgressions are multiplied, O Lord, they
I am not worthy to look up and see the height
of heaven because of the multitude of my iniquities.
10 I am weighted down with many an iron fetter, so that I am rejected
because of my sins, and I have no relief; for I have provoked your wrath and have done
what is evil in your sight, setting up abominations and multiplying offenses.
11 And now I bend the knee of my heart, imploring you for your
12 I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned, and I acknowledge my
13 I earnestly implore you, forgive me, O Lord, forgive me!
Do not destroy me with my transgressions!
Do not be angry with me forever or store up
evil for me;
do not condemn me to the depths of the earth.
For you, O Lord, are
the God of those who repent,
14 and in me you will manifest your goodness; for, unworthy as I
am, you will save me according to your great mercy,
15 and I will praise you continually all the days of my life.
For all the host of heaven sings your
praise, and yours is the glory forever.
Luke 23: 34
And Jesus said:
Father, forgive them,
for they know not what they do.
