iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all know Me, from the least of
them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and
their sin I will remember no more."

know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD . "For I will forgive their
wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
