and to be gracious to him and say, "Spare him from going down to the Pit; I have found a ransom,"
Israel, put your hope in the LORD. For there is faithful love with the Lord, and with Him is redemption in abundance.
Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city-- to bring the rebellion to an end, to put a stop to sin, to wipe away injustice, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy place.
Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince will be seven weeks and 62 weeks. It will be rebuilt with a plaza and a moat, but in difficult times.
After those 62 weeks the Messiah will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the coming prince will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come with a flood, and until the end there will be war; desolations are decreed.
As for you, because of the blood of your covenant, I will release your prisoners from the waterless cistern.

He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a special people, eager to do good works.
He entered the holy of holies once for all, not by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who are defiled, sanctify for the purification of the flesh,
how much more will the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve the living God?
Therefore He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance, because a death has taken place for redemption from the transgressions [committed] under the first covenant.
For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
Therefore, as He was coming into the world, He said: You did not want sacrifice and offering, but You prepared a body for Me.
You did not delight in whole burnt offerings and sin offerings.
Then I said, "See, I have come-- it is written about Me in the volume of the scroll-- to do Your will, O God!"
After He says above, You did not desire or delight in sacrifices and offerings, whole burnt offerings and sin offerings, (which are offered according to the law),
He then says, See, I have come to do Your will. He takes away the first to establish the second.
By this will, we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all.
Now every priest stands day after day ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But this man, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.
For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things, like silver or gold,
but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish.
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; by His wounding you have been healed.
For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring you to God, after being put to death in the fleshly realm but made alive in the spiritual realm.
He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world.
Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals; because You were slaughtered, and You redeemed [people] for God by Your blood from every tribe and language and people and nation.

But with You there is forgiveness, so that You may be revered.
"It is I who sweep away your transgressions for My own sake and remember your sins no more.
Seek the LORD while He may be found; call to Him while He is near.
Let the wicked one abandon his way, and the sinful one his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, so He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will freely forgive.
No longer will one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying: Know the LORD, for they will all know Me, from the least to the greatest of them"-- the LORD's declaration. "For I will forgive their wrongdoing and never again remember their sin."
Compassion and forgiveness belong to the Lord our God, though we have rebelled against Him
Lord, hear! Lord, forgive! Lord, listen and act! My God, for Your own sake, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name.
He prayed to the LORD: "Please, LORD, isn't this what I said while I was still in my own country? That's why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that You are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to become angry, rich in faithful love, and One who relents from [sending] disaster.
Who is a God like You, removing iniquity and passing over rebellion for the remnant of His inheritance? He does not hold on to His anger forever, because He delights in faithful love.

And He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace."

All the prophets testify about Him that through His name everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins."
Therefore, let it be known to you, brothers, that through this man forgiveness of sins is being proclaimed to you,
and everyone who believes in Him is justified from everything, which you could not be justified from through the law of Moses.
Likewise, David also speaks of the blessing of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
How happy those whose lawless acts are forgiven and whose sins are covered!
How happy the man whom the Lord will never charge with sin!
Is this blessing only for the circumcised, then? Or is it also for the uncircumcised? For we say, Faith was credited to Abraham for righteousness.
And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive with Him and forgave us all our trespasses.
[He adds]: I will never again remember their sins and their lawless acts.
Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His name.

so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
This grace was given to me-- the least of all the saints!-- to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of the Messiah,
[I pray] that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, restraint, and patience, not recognizing that God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
And [what if] He did this to make known the riches of His glory on objects of mercy that He prepared beforehand for glory--
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: although He was rich, for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich.
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
God wanted to make known to those among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

This [Spirit] He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
